Rapid2D £10,000 Competition
Want to be a Mobile App Developer Do you need £10,000?

If so, we have a competition that could provide you with just that! Rapid2D, the brand new Game Engine (which is designed specifically for developing on the Windows 8 platform) is running a competition which has a first prize of £10,000. That's a serious amount of money! The competition involves making a number of apps for the Windows 8 Marketplace.


Each entry can be an individual or a team; the competition rules, terms and conditions are the same whether you enter as an individual or a team. If entering as a team, the maximum number of people allowed in any one team is SIX, including the team captain. Each entry - whether the entrant is an individual or a team - must publish a minimum of FIVE apps per entry in order to be entered for the prize draw and have the chance of winning the first prize of £10,000. If 6 or more games are published, the individual or team will receive one additional entry into the prize draw.

Team area

When you enter the competition you will be given access to a team progress area where you can enter the names and statuses of the games as they are produced. Please note that you must self-publish every app you produce to the UK Windows 8 Store. Just entering the name and status of the game on your progress page within Rapid2D does not constitute publishing the app. You must publish every app to the UK Windows 8 Store in order for it to be considered for this competition.


The closing date for app publication to the UK Windows 8 Store is 11:59:59pm GMT on 2nd April 2013. All apps which are to be considered for the competition must be published to the UK Windows 8 Store by this time. Apart from the main prize of £10,000 there will be runner up prize for 2nd place of an Xbox 360 console and games bundles for each individual entrant or member of the runner up teams.

    This is not awesome. They'd be paying 2K an app (to the first place winner) and getting all the others for free. I bet when you submit the app it becomes the property of Microsoft etc… why work all that time to give it away. Total ***.
