Have you ever had a great game idea but lacked even the slightest means of making that dream game a reality? Of course, you have! I have those thoughts all the time, but all that work is just such a big turn-off. I wish I could just be the "idea man" and have some other poor schmucks do all the heavy lifting for me.

Well, now I can... I mean... YOU can!

Competition organizer GAMEscribe has teamed up with Dementium and Mutant Mudds developer Renegade Kid for the pitchWinPLAY contest. Starting tomorrow, March 25, and running through September 1, entrants can submit a pitch for an original side-scrolling platformer. In addition to $5000 cash and other goodies, the grand prize winner will have his or her game turned into a legit 3DS eShop title developed by Renegade Kid using the Mutant Mudds engine. Now, doesn't that just kick twenty different kinds of ass?

There is an entry fee required -- I'm assuming it's to help with the game budget as well as to avoid stuffing the submission box. If you enter by April 13, the fee is $20; by August 1, $25; and by September 1, $35. You must be over 18 to enter, but at least the contest is open to folks outside the US. You can find more details and a full list of prizes at the link below.

La-Mulana 2 aims to be more 'intuitive,' still hard as heck

La-Mulana was regarded by some as the hardest game ever. This isn't going to change, though Nigoro's Takami Naramura wants it to be slightly more intuitive so perhaps all those deaths don't lead to warranted frustration and ...more
