OMG Contest

If you haven’t heard by now, you may want to look into the OMG Contest over at

Contest Overview
The OMG (Original Mac Games) Cup is a new game programming contest established by iDevGames, in connection with Freeverse Software, to encourage unique Mac game development. iDevGames is proud to partner with the Mac platform’s leading game developer of original Mac games, Freeverse Software. The challenge of the contest is to create innovative Mac OS X games that emphasize engaging gameplay—in only six weeks! The OMG Cup builds on the success of our smaller contest, “21 Days Later,” and the industry leading annual contest, “uDevGames.” With numerous success stories of past entrants of our uDevGames contest releasing commercial games, we look forward to fostering the development of a new generation of Mac game programmers. – Carlos Camacho (Editor-in-Chief, iDevGames)

The Three Fs of Winning
Fame, Free games, and Freeverse cash (Please see complete list below)

I haven’t decided yet if I’m going make a go of this or not. But it looks very interesting and fun. I’m sure they will get a bunch of top notch entries. It’s great that Carlos was able to sign up Freeverse as a sponsor, that gives the contest an air of professionalism and adds some great incentives.
