I’m thinking about hosting a game development contest. The only thing I’m unsure about is how many people would truly be interested? I’d love some feedback here in the comments on it. Maybe we can get a nice discussion going.
The only hang up I keep coming to is what would be the winning prize? I own a Web Hosting company, Canis Hosting, and have thought about throwing out a year’s domain registration and with a lifetime hosting package out there. But would that attract anyone?
The basic premise I was thinking of would be to lay out a genre and UI specifications. Possibly focus on a technique or platform. I don’t think it has to be limited to Flash games. How long could something like this go? Seven days? 30 days? I guess that’s all up in the air.
I’d love to see some input on this. Maybe others would like to get involved as well?
