Mozilla launches Game On competition
Mozilla launches Game On competition
Friday, 01 October 2010

Mozilla Labs has announced a competition - it wants you to create games and there will be prizes. But compared to other contests we've reported on this one is a bit ad hoc. - you could almost say "open ended" rather than "open source".

The competition launched 30 September 2010 and runs until 11 January 2011. The overall winner will be flown to San Francisco for  next year's Game Developer Conference and Independent Games Festival  and be treated to behind-the-scenes tour of Mozilla HQ  expenses paid.

In addition there will be (quote)  a bunch of great prizes but no details as yet, and the judging panel will consist of some amazing people in the Web and gaming worlds again no details.

There is however one guiding principle:

 you need to write a game using only open Web technology (that is HTML, CSS and JavaScript plus whatever you might want to use on the backend). No plug-ins – and it needs to work in Firefox 4.

 

Entries will be judged on six dimensions:

  • Technology – Does your game demonstrate technical mastery (game engine/ code base)?
  • Open Web-iness – Does your game showcase the power of open Web technologies?
  • Aesthetics – How good is the visual design and interaction experience?
  • Originality – How innovative and unique is the idea and execution?
  • Polish – How "production-ready" is the game?
  • Fun – Is the game offering an experience you want to return to again and again?
