Barry White of GamesChart recently passed along the press release below. Being that he is a sponsor of Hackathon's Game Competition I am more than happy to share. It also appears that you can reuse the same game or at least a variation of it for both competitions... thus more motivation for knocking out a Benevolent game by the 13th! Good luck to all who enter, looks like there are some nice cash prizes for the winners:
The contest genre is 'Casual Games' and submissions will be judged on the following criteria:
* Multiplayer playability for new and return players
* Replay ability of the game
* Design, sound and effects
* Concept and execution
Developers keep all rights to the games they submit and even previously released games can be entered.
There was only a handful of entries to last years contest, so the chance of winning a serious cash prize is very high. Check out the winning entries of the 1st 'Games that Challenge the World Contest' here: http://bit.ly/gKLqz6 - If you've got a multiplayer game and you think you stand a chance of winning, why not submit your game now!
