Atari’s Pong Indie Developer Challenge Updated, Ups Revenue Sharing Period for Winners
For budding game developers out there, here’s even more incentive for you to join Atari’s Pong Indie Developer Challenge. The company is extending the revenue-sharing publishing agreement period from one year to three years for all winners. The new publishing terms are intended to offer developers larger incentives for participation and increase their potential revenue as a result of their winning Pong submission.
Atari also today launched the Developer Spotlight, an online showcase of contest finalists that will give millions of Atari fans a personal look at each developer’s profile and help raise awareness for their contest submission. Additionally, Atari revealed that it has added David Whatley of Critical Thought Games to the contest judging panel. Whatley brings years of game development experience with several App Store blockbusters under his belt, including geoDefense and Tiny Heroes. He joins the judging panel alongside Atari founder Nolan Bushnell, Dave Castelnuovo of Bolt Creative and Mike Schramm of TUAW.Powered by Sidelines
