Will Pwn 4 Food (the game studio I work for at my day job) released DodgeBots, our first title, this week! The premise is simple: if you're good at playing games, you now have the potential to make money doing it. Here's how it works:
Will Pwn 4 Food is hosting another DodgeBots tournament for gamers this November 15th. $500 is up for grabs! Who doesn't like cash?
As with the last tournament, you've got to be age of majority in your respective state/province, live in the USA or Canada, and must not live in a few states who don't allow skill-based gaming for money. Be sure to read the official rules and regulations on the competitions page when signing up to be sure you can compete.
Will Pwn 4 Food (the company I work for) is hosting a gaming-for-money competition at lunch on October 30th for our new online game, DodgeBots. If you're in Canada or the USA (except for a few states, see below**) and are in the age of majority, you're invited to come and play to see if you can take home the big prize!
DodgeBots is a fast-action 3d game where you've got to avoid being hit by balls being shot at you from a player-controlled turret up high on the arena walls. You can play right in your web browser thanks to the Unity3D engine. It's a quick and painless download and you can use any of the major browsers to play (Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari).
This competition is going to be sick. It's a $10 entry and check out these prizes:
**Due to some crazy laws down there in the good ol' U S of A, players from these states cannot participate in the competition:
In order to compete and collect your prize you must be age of majority and living in North America with the exception of the following states which don't allow skill gaming: Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, South Carolina, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Vermont.
On one of my first days at Will Pwn 4 Food we went to TriOS College in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada (also where our office is located) to check in with the computer programmers going to school there to see what they're up to.
It turns out they are doing a lot of neat things with gaming including a bunch of stuff with XNA and the teacher himself is actually part of an indie team called Phantom Compass, which is building a really neat game called Rollers of the Realm, which I discovered today at Project Play.
It's a totally unique concept: a pinball RPG.
I didn't get a chance to sit down and play it (all these events are just far too crazy) but I signed up for the beta. If you're interested, take a look at the video and follow through to their homepage to investigate further.
