Activision announces Independent Game Competition

Recommended Videos

Activision has announced the first Activision Independent Game Competition, in which the publisher is putting a call out for submissions from indie game developers in the United States.

The contest will allow either individuals or teams to submit either completed or in-development games, the winners taking home cash towards development as prizes. Round one of the competition starts today, and goes through August 31; the first place winner will get $175,000 towards development of their title, with the second place getting $75,000 in assistance. Winners will be announced in October, with details on “round two” being announced at a later date.

The idea, says the publisher, is to “help foster creativity and innovation from rising talent in the independent game development community.” Even though it has released some excellent titles over the years, I’m not entirely sure the words “creativity” and “innovation” to the minds of many gamers when thinking of Activision.

Any indie developers out there looking to jump on this opportunity? Think Activision can help make your game a reality?
