There are a couple game competitions that I know of right now, and I wanted to share with everyone.
Jonathan Harbour RTS game contest for beginners
(Due 12/25/2011) Jonathan Harbour has a contest for beginners to develop their own real time strategy(RTS) game, and has some prizes as well.
It would be a good excuse to work on a new game, and you don’t even have to have scrolling- just one screen. Don’t let that fool you though, any game project still requires work and determination
1st Place Prize: App Game Kit (AGK) – Retail value: $112!
2nd Place Prize: $30 voucher for the TGC Store!
Intel Level Up 2011
(Due 3/19/2012) Also, the “Intel Level Up 2011″ game competition is finally up. It’s almost 2012, but the prizes are pretty nice, though the competition is not just beginners, but also includes students and Indie companies.
My RTS WIP
I’m currently working on the RTS one, and you can see my latest demo here(although fill in graphics, and lots of bugs still – but a week to finish :D):
