iDevGames.com is a Web site dedicated to information, news and resources for aspiring Macintosh game programmers. The uDevGame contest was made with three goals in mind, according to the coordinators: create, educate and succeed. Contestants, amateur and professional developers alike, are competing for more than US$15,000 in prizes donated by various sponsors.
Developers participating in the event are encouraged to release original games for the Mac, then to release the source code they used to create their games back to the Mac programming community in the hope their efforts will spur other programmers to do more also.
The public voting period ends on November 26th. Between now and then, Mac gamers are encouraged to drop by the site and download the games, then vote on criteria including Game Play, Originality, Graphics, Sound & Music and Polish. iDevGames.com will tally the votes, average them, and announce this year’s winners on December 2, 2002.
