Shifting a game from an idea to actually bringing the project to life can be a tricky affair, and not always for technical reasons. Perhaps you need a different kind of boost, like, say… winning the GameMaker Press Play competition?
It’s about as easy as it can be, too: prior to September 30th, simply describe the idea for your dream game here – its plot, mechanics, style, genre, and inspiration. Oh, and in less than 500 words, excluding drug use, sexual themes, brutal violence, disturbing visuals, etc.
The thought of all these fantastic game projects that never left the paper inspired us to host GameMaker Press Play
Three winners will be picked at the end of the contest, by a jury consisting of YoYo Games employees, each victor receiving the following:
- Opportunity to work with a professional game creator, who’ll make your dream game a reality!
- A high end gaming laptop to help you continue your game making journey.
- And last but not least….The finished games will be promoted in Opera GX, a gaming browser with more than 9M users, who’ll be able see your game during their daily browsing.
Theme? Pfft. What is this, a game jam? No such thing! Let your imagination run wild, absolutely wild, completely wild. As wild as you can. Well, within the constraints of the above no-no’s, that is. Just remember, the clock’s ticking, and at the time of writing, only eight days remain. Get to it!
