The Challenge 2008 – Win some nice prizes

January 6, 2009

With this somewhat of an outdated title, I would like to inform all of you about the Microsoft game competition running this month. The competition utilizes the Messenger API, to write simple games to be played from within Messenger. You can write your own game in flash, Silverlight or pure html, and via JavaScript communicate with your Messenger client to make it a multiplayer game.

 

I have been chosen by Microsoft to be one of the judges – bribes are not accepted – but I encourage all to participate in the game development tournament this month.

I think I will make a little game of my own, but naturally I can not participate in the tournament. I will keep you posted about the progress.
