On the heels of news that Mac game programming resource
iDevGames has redesigned its Web site, it has also announced the start of uDevGame 2002, the second annual Macintosh game creation competition. Contestants can compete for a US$9,000 prize pool.
iDevGames is a resource for Macintosh game programmers established or aspiring. It’s a place where folks interested in developing games for the Macintosh can exchange ideas or seek help from one another, and it’s also a place where folks who have written them can get more exposure for their efforts. The site contains articles, tutorials, a forum, Web links and more.
uDevGame itself was founded “to help highlight the talents and abilities of [iDevGames’] readership and the wider Macintosh game development community.”
Last year’s inaugural uDevGames competition fostered 20 new entries with source code, and some of the winning entries were also incorporated into a recently published book called Mac Game Programming.
uDevGames entries are welcomed from all over the world. The competition closes November 17, 2002 and the winners will be announced on December 2. More details are available on the
uDevGames Web page.
