(The Hosting News) – have teamed up with Intel to offer game developers the chance to win a range of prizes for developing new games for netbooks. There are several prizes on offer with the top prize being an all expenses paid vacation worth up to US $5,000.
The competition aims to seek out, recognize and reward excellent game development for netbook devices. Indie and hobbyist developers are encouraged to make use of the summer holidays and start a potentially new revenue earning hobby with the Intel AppUp store and game making tools from The Game Creators.
The Game Creators’ Financial Director, Rick Vanner, said “This competition is aimed at empowering the many talented amateur game makers that love to spend their spare time coding games and demos. The Intel AppUp store will give them a direct channel to market and sell their small game apps to millions of users worldwide. By using the free versions of Dark Basic Professional or Dark GDK they can create games in a short time scale. We have a very creative community and it will be exciting to see what they develop.”
For this competition there is a deadline of 4th October at 12PM GMT so those looking to enter need to get started now.
