Think you've got what it takes to make the next Baldur's Gate or KOTOR? BioWare is having a contest, to have people submit, in writing, the outline for a game. Even if you don't get hired, there's a good chance you could win a prize. The Inquirer can give you more info, and a link to the contest details.
I've also heard rumours that FutureLooks and The Tech Zone are running a similar ECS contest, if you are really hoping to put a Pentium D under the tree.
"It is officially titled, "The Contest That Might Become Your Career." Note the clever use of the
subjunctive mood, "might" being the key word. No employment is guaranteed, but there's nothing
wrong with a little hype on their part. In fact, the subjunctive could be considered the spin
doctor's best friend.
And the actual prizes aren't bad. Coffee mugs, wool caps, t-shirts, and a fair chunk more go to
each of the eight winners. And to be fair, they do list some folks from the community who have
been hired in the past."
