>hi all,
>
>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 
>games, etc).
>
>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
>
>thanks all!
