Today in Takamatsu City, Japan is the opening of the second annual Mac game creation competition uDevGame 2002. Contestents who write a game that runs natively on the Mac can win prizes from a prize pool valued at over US$9,000. iDevGames is a site for game developers on the Mac with news, articles, tutorials, and a forum.

Last year’s contest contributed more than 20 new games with source code (available from iDevGames.com) to the game development industry, and received great interest from the game development industry. Some of the winning entries from uDevGame 2001 were even published in the recently released book Mac Game Programming by Mark Szymczyk.

Any game genre is welcomed and entries are permissible from anywhere in the world. The competition closes on November 17, 2002 and winners will be announced on December 2, 2002. “The best part about participating in uDevGame is not the prizes, but the possibility that your entry might end up on the cover CD of a book or a magazine. Having some sort of publishing history is vital if you want to enter the Game development business”, said Sacha Saxer, third place winner of last year’s contest.

More information about the competition and how to enter can be found at uDevGame 2002’s official home page.
