This is a contest being held by GameScribe and game studio Renegage Kid (known for Dementium: The Ward
and Mutant Mudds,
among others), where just about anybody can pitch their game idea to them. Anybody. In addition to there being 3DSs and lots of games up for grabs, the grand prize? $5,000, and a chance to develop your game idea for realzies.
No fooling. It'll be a 3DS game and everything. The only real requirement is that it's 2D side-scrolling.
This is a neat
idea for a contest. I don't know about y'all, but I'm filling out my pitch form as we speak. I've had an idea kicking around in my head for, oh, a decade or so that I might as well throw out there.
