Great Games, Great Community, Great Contest
DevMaster.net and GarageGames are proud to announce a contest for a brand new site dedicated to bringing developers, gamers, and publishers together with great games: GreatGamesExperiment.com. To create your account and get started head over to www.GreatGamesExperiment.com and use the promo code "DevMasterGGE".
GarageGames is going beyond development tools to try to change the industry using the entire community of indie gamers. Great games deserve to be played, regardless of budget or bureaucracy. No one company or part of the community can do it alone. Gamers, developers, and publishers must unite to bring every essential component of the indie game process together.
Contest, Categories, Prizes
Here's a link to the contest categories and prizes, which include an iPod Nano and 2 free passes to the Game Developers Conference in San Fransisco!
If you're reading this the first round of the contest has already started, but it ends on January 29th. GGE will be having a new contest every week leading up to a two week contest after its full release to the public on March 4th, so there will be plenty of chances to win increasingly great prizes.
Why are we giving away so much free stuff to a limited group of people? GGE is a community site, and therefore requires active community participation to thrive. That is why it is being released to developers before anyone else. Having a large initial user base comprised mostly of developers and hardcore indie gamers will help to ensure that GGE will indeed result in a site that is dedicated to being the catalyst that drives the video game industry into the next generation of gaming.
Promote, Network, Discover, Download, Play
The goal of GGE is to be an all-in-one community for everything a lover of great games could want from a site. Promote your game; network with other developers and gamers; discover new games and old favorites; download free games and demos, or make yours available to others; play games and share your passion with an active community created for that very purpose.
