Server problems have plagued this year’s uDevGame 2003 contest, the work of
iDevGames. An annual occurrence, the contest has been created as a way of spurring grassroots interest in Mac OS X game development by featuring thousands of dollars’ worth of prizes. This year’s contest got derailed, however, after issues cropped up with the server used to distribute out this year’s game entries.
Gamers are encouraged to participate, because it’s their votes that help determine who wins the contest. 43 Mac games have been submitted for consideration this year, ranging from simple arcade games to RPGs and more. Many of them are in various states of completion, ranging from early development versions or proofs of concept to more or less complete efforts.
Gamers interested in checking out this year’s entries can visit the
Web site for more information. Because of the earlier server problems, voting on this year’s entries will be extended to December 5, 2003. Contest coordinator (and iDevGames.com editor in chief) Carlos Camacho will announce the winners on December 8, 2003.
