New DX Studio Demo Contest Launched

Date: 18th June 2009

In line with the success of their Winter 2008 Games Contest and the upcoming release of DX Studio Version 3.1, software developers Worldweaver Ltd have today launched a new competition for best demo made using the DX Studio platform. This year’s contest sees the additional twist of a theme based on the idea‘Where Are They Now?’. Entrants must feature a lead or supporting character from a once famous game and suggest what they might be up to now.

“Last year’s contest was very popular and a number of the entries are now being developed into commercial games. This year we wanted to open up the contest to non-gaming applications too, and by having a theme we can really challenge entrants creativity whilst ensuring everyone starts from a level playing field” said Operations Director Bob Sterling.

The competition is now up and running and has a closing date of 17th September 2009. Prizes worth over GBP 2,000 are up for grabs (including GBP 1,000 in cash) with individual awards for Best Overall, Best Innovation and Best Design. The winning demos will also be made available to play on the DX Studio website.

Full details of the competition can be found at www.dxstudio.com.
