not to steal retroremake's thunder but a company i've been working
with wants to sponsor a game accessibility contest. my friend didn't
know about the retroremakes competition going on at the same time but
i think that there's enough differences that it will be ok and
donationcoder will allow entries into both contests as long as the
one for donationcoder is a slightly different version or even more
into accessibility than retro. BUT i think it's VERY exciting to see
not one but TWO competitions for game accessibility!
anyway, the working page is at
http://www.donationcoder.com/Contests/agame/ and i'd love some
feedback. barrie has already provided some and the changes are being
worked on now (more web links, more clear explanations about switch
there will be a lot of prizes that are being finalized next week --
$5k is up there as the amount of money the prizes are currently at
but the last donationcoder competition (not a gaming comp) had $15k
in prizes. also i plan on inviting winners from retroremakes and
donationcoder to submit a case study on the creation of their game to
the SIG book as well as the possibility of talking about the creation
of the game at next year's GDC (provided we get accepted!).
so fire away with suggestions -- and if you are at a company that
would like to donate copies of games, tshirts, swag, game consoles,
etc let me know at hinn at uiuc.edu
