Mochi and Gaia Online hold game dev competition

The search is on for the Flash game industry's rockstars, as Mochi Ads and Gaia Online team up to launch the 'Become a Rockstar' Flash game contest.

The competition is a collaboration between Mochi Media, who run the MochiAds advertising service for Flash games, and Gaia Online, 'the leading online hangout for teens.'

Winners of the competition will receive over $25,000 worth of cash and prizes, as well as the possibility of being awarded game development contracts from Gaia.

“This contest is a unique opportunity for Flash game developers to get the exposure they deserve,” said Mochi Media CEO Jameson Hsu.

“There are a lot of talented developers out there, and we’re excited to bring them tools that increase community interaction with their games.”

More information and submission details can be found at the contest's official website.
