Yoyo Games Winter Competition

Hot on the heels of the GM Race, YoYoGames has announced a winter competition with a $1000 first prize, $500 second prize and $250 third prize.

Games must be submitted by 12:00 AM GMT on Dec 23rd, 2007. The judging will be done by YYG and Prof. Overmars, but they will rely on public opinion. Games must use a winter theme.

Games must be made with Game Maker 6 or later, Pro or Lite. Teams are not allowed. Games can be made in the past, but only if it has not already been published on Yoyogames. Fullscreen or resolution-changing games are not allowed. Two entries are allowed per person.

  1. Why do I feel like they’re throwing away their budget?

  2. That’s hardly a budget. Besides, by promoting the competition, they’re drawing traffic to YoYoGames.com (ad revenue) and potentially selling more copies of Game Maker.

  3. Teams are allowed. Its just only one person will get the money. And only one person can submit it.

  4. Ah well I’m only a marketing novice 😉 Just started the course this year 🙂
