Pluralsight will also be throwing in an awesome box of SWAG for the winner!

And there may even be more in store for you, your game will definitely be promoted on this blog.

How to win

Step 1: Follow me and Pluralsight on twitter.

Step 2: Watch my Introduction to 2D Game Programming with XNA course and/or my Cross Platform Game Development with MonoGame on Pluralsight and tweet about it.

Step 3: Create a game based on what you learned from the course.

Send me a zipped up version of your completed game and the top 3 games will win prizes! 

DO NOT SEND AN EXE! 

MAKE SURE YOU SEND THE SOURCE CODE!

You can send your submissions to me at john dot sonmez at gmail dot com.

Please make sure you do everything to qualify for the competition.  I want to be as fair as possible.  So, if you make an awesome game, but you didn’t follow the directions, I can’t award you the prize, I’ll have to give it to the next awesome game.

Contest dates and deadlines

All submissions must be completed no later than Nov 30th 2012 EST.

Winners will be announced by Dec 15th 2012.

  1. Too bad I’m not a PS subscriber. May I still send you something?

    • It wouldn’t be fair if you could enter the competition without watching the videos on Pluralsight, but if you send me an email, I will send you a 1 month free Pluralsight subscription so that you can watch the videos and enter the contest.

      • Hi,

        can I take that offer too? The regular trial is just 200mins.

  2. Hello John, great contest!

    What happens with the sourcecode once we send it to you? Regarding rights etc? Will you publish the sourcecode or only look at it?

    • Good question. The source code will only be used for judging the competition. You will retain all rights.

  3. Could be a Windows 8 Metro Style App?

    • Using MonoGame, yes.
