JayIsGames.com gets posted about regularly here on DC. We were linking to Jay's great game reviews way back when it was just Jay alone reviewing occasional games. It's wonderful to see the competitions on the site bring such great new talent to light. If you haven't checked out some of the past entries, they are as good as they get.
So here is competition #5. If you ever wanted to make a flash game, now is the time:
For the 5th Casual Gameplay Design Competition, we are asking for entries that incorporate this theme: UPGRADE. You are free to interpret that any way you choose; however, the extent to which your game addresses the theme is left up to the competition judges to decide. Use your imagination and be creative. We will select the best entries submitted to represent the competition just like we have done before. Impress us with your game design and production skills and you will score fame, recognition, prizes, as well as a proper review of your work by the JIG Casual Gameplay review staff.
ps. Cody, the mascot bird/duck of DonationCoder.com is dying to be in a game, so keep that in mind if you are looking for a starring character for your game
