Ever wonder what it would be like to make an official Batman game? Well, MochiAds has teamed up with Warner Bros. to bring an exciting oportunity for flash game developers. Warner Bros. is not only offering the chance for you to make an officially licensed Batman game, but they are going to pay out a total of $64,000 in prizes to the best games submitted!
The contest is called Batman: The Brave and the Bold, and has three phases that you need to go through before you can officially declare yourself the developer of a Batman game.
The first phase involves coming up with a great game idea. In this phase, you’ll just be submitting game ideas, storyboards, titles, and mockups of how your game will play. Once you’ve come up with a great idea (that can be completed on a deadline of 2 months), you’ll need to head over to the brave and the bold website to submit your game ideas. Hurry though, the submission date ends March 27th, 2009.
Once your game ideas have been submitted, MochiAds will select the top twenty ideas. Out of those 20 ideas, 10 will be chosen to actually create their ideas, while the others will be given a small prize gift for their participation. This is great news for developers because with 10 prizes available, it means that everyone who starts working on a game for the contest will be compensated well for it. In fact, the lowest amount of money that one of the chosen developers will make is $4,000.
For the first time ever, Warner Bros. and DC will be giving offical Batman assets out to the 10 game developers chosen to build their games. Once the games are made, the top game will recieve the grand prize of $9,000 and a contract to work on another game worth $15,000! The next four best games will recieve a $5,000 prize, with the other games recieving $4,000 cash for their efforts.
With $64,000 in prizes, this is one of the biggest contests I’ve seen yet. Plus, besides the huge cash incentive, this contest might just open up opportunities to work with other cartoons and movies for flash games. It never hurts to have developed the official Batman game on your resume. For more information on the contest, check out the article at MochiLand.
