We've talked about previous JayIsGames.com competitions to design flash games. It regularly produces some of the best flash games you'll find anywhere -- it's a very high caliber of talent that participates.
This year they are opening up the challenge to any web-compatible technology, not just flash (Silverlight, etc.) - though I expect that the overwhelming majority of games will be done in Flash.
The theme this year, Explore -- is wonderful. I think this will make for some really interesting entries.
I'd love to see some DC members participate and submit a game of their own design. If there's anything we can do to help or encourage you, let me know. I'll reserve some special DC games division mugs for anyone who enters.
For the 6th Casual Gameplay Design Competition, we are asking for entries designed to incorporate this theme: EXPLORE.
The deadline for entries is Sunday, October 4, 2009 at 11:59PM (GMT-5:00).
1st place: $1,000
Audience award: $500
