Kongregate: Mobile Game Contest (25,000 USD at Stake)
Since the release of the Kongregate Arcade App, which is available for Flash compatible Android phones, over 300,000 people have joined! If you don’t know what the Kongregate App is, it has hundreds of Kongregate games, all prepared to play on your Android phone. Anyway, Kongregate is now started up a contest with 25,000 USD on the line! Kongregate wants YOU to develop a mobile game for their app! The best game will receive 6,000 USD, second place will receive 4,000, third to tenth will get 1,125 dollars each and finally, fifteen runner-ups will get 400 dollars each.
Here is the judging criteria! There are also a couple of features that Kong considers “extra credit” which Kongregatre will definitely be looking for when considering the winners: “OPTIMIZED FOR DELIVERY ACROSS MULTIPLE DEVICES: Flash Player 10.1 will be available for a broad range of mobile devices, including smartphones, netbooks and other Internet-connected devices, allowing your content to reach your customers wherever they are. As with Flash Player 10, this release also supports Windows 7 and Mac OS X 10.6 (“Snow Leopard”) desktop operating systems. OTHER: Utilize the device’s input options – accelerometer (AS3-only), DPAD, trackball. Create with swipe friendly interactions. Allow player to resume last game. Built using AIR for mobile.” – Extra credit. You are also allowed to modify one of your current web-friendly games, or upload one of your already currently mobile friendly to work on mobile and then enter it in the contest!
Kongregate is definitely looking for creative games! The games also need to not be too processor intensive and are touch-screen friendly!
Anyway, check out this page, on Kongregate, that has some more information on the contest. On that page is couple example of some really good mobile games, that already on the Kongregate App. A couple of tutorial, guidelines and best practices for mobile game development, are also viewable on the page.
