GameStop’s Kongregate and publisher Ubisoft Entertainment are hosting a game development contest that will see one winner take home a $10,000 first prize. The contest is to promote the upcoming release of Child of Eden, the spiritual successor to the popular game REZ. Game director Tetsuya Mizuguchi will serve as a judge in the contest and will help decide which game is the best of the best.
The game development contest, dubbed "Experience the Music," challenges participants to "electrify the senses by creating a game that synchronizes music and unique gameplay."
The first few entrants will be judged by the Kongregate community until the list is whittled down to just 25 entries. From there, Mizuguchi and GameSpot editor Ricardo Torres will pick the top three entries, awarding a grand prize of $10,000 to the best game. The Second place winner will receive $3,000, while the third place winner receives $2,000.
The contest deadline is June 21. Rules, regulations, and fine print can be found at www.kongregate.com/experience-the-music.
