Gear Live Game Design Contest: Winner Gets An Xbox 360
Alright peeps, we have yet another opportunity for anyone out there to walk away with an Xbox 360, courtesy of Gear Live. We are looking to see what our readers can come up with in terms of creating a simple video game. We just made one ourselves, and despite not having any previous coding knowledge, we are pretty happy with the way Tennis Challenge turned out. Yeah, it may appear to be a Pong rip, but we made it our own. Now it’s your turn. Here is how it’s gonna go down:
- Download the game we created in Visual Studio Express, Gear Live’s Tennis Challenge
- Download Visual Studio Express. This also enters you in the Upgrade Your Game Sweepstakes.
- Create a game from scratch, or edit one of the game templates that Visual Studio Express gives you.
- Let us know about your game. Blog about it and link us to it. Let us know on our forums. All games will be made available for public download.
- The contest ends on June 23, 2006, but seriously, it took us all of ten minutes to create Tennis Challenge. Of course, we want you to do better than we did.
- We will choose a winner, and that person walks away with a brand new Xbox 360.
Now, this contest is open only to Gear Live members. Of course, signing up is completely free, and takes all of ten seconds. If you have a forum account, you are already a member. Now, go ahead and get to work on creating a game - we want to see just how creative you guys can be. Oh, and we have this extra Xbox 360 that needs a home.
