Now that you've had time to get acquainted with Leadwerks, it's time for the Summer 2016 Game Tournament.
WHEN: The tournament will start Monday, July 25, and end Sunday, August 21th at 11:59 P.M. (Pacific Standard Time).
HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Publish your summer-or-other-themed game to Steam Workshop or upload it to the games database before the deadline. You can work as a team or individually. Use blogs to share your work and get feedback as you build your game. If you need models for your game, we've got a summer model pack for you to use for free from Leadwerks Workshop.
Games must have a preview image, title, and contain some minimal amount of gameplay (there has to be some way to win) to be considered entries. It is expected that most entries will be simple, given the time constraints.
PRIZES: Rather than a competition, this tournamant is a "co-opetition". Everyone who participates gets a prize!
If this is your first game tournament entry, you will receive a cool Leadwerks sticker in the mail.
If this is your second game tournament entry, you'll receive a collection of three limited-edition professionally printed postcards featuring beautiful Leadwerks screenshots. Send them to a friend or put them on the wall.
If this is your third game tournament entry, you'll receive a rockin' Leadwerks T-shirt in the mail. Wear it to show how cool you really are.
If this is your fourth game tournament entry, you'll receive the new Leadwerks hoodie! This gorgeous garment makes you look like a Silicon Valley startup geek. This light jacket is perfect for air-conditioned spaces that are just slightly chilly.
If this is your fifth game tournament entry, you will receive a Steam Controller. The Steam Controller lets you play your entire collection of Steam games on your TV—even the ones designed without controller support in mind.
Bonus PrizeAll participants will receive an 11" x 17" printed poster for the Summer Games 2016 Tournament! This limited-run item will be printed only once, only for this event. This is your only chance to get this poster, ever.
Make games and have fun!
