Project Bossanova, established to launch the first ever 3D game exclusively for Linux, today announced a new competition aimed at finding that game. Here's how it works:
- Are you making an indie game?
- Do you want to have your entire game development team sponsored?
- If yes, submit your idea via the button below:
- After two weeks, the project will select three of the top submissions
- The audience will then vote on which team wins sponsorship
To help promote the game, we have joined forces with OMG Ubuntu who will be promoting Project Bossanova along with ModDB, IndieDB and Desura. For us this partnership makes a lot of sense, as the interest in a game digital distribution on linux is significant and we want to bring Desura to Linux. After all the Humble Indie Bundle has twice proven how passionate Linux gamers are.
"We are excited to work with Desura in this joint venture as they have established themselves as the name in independent gaming," said Project Bossanova lead Benjamin Humphrey. "As we have stated before, this is an ambitious project, but with the Desura partnership in place, we feel that we are one step closer to achieving our goal."
So GAME DEVELOPERS, submit your game as an entry to the contest directly to Projectbossanova.com. Remember, you must commit to making the game available for Linux only, profit sharing with the project, and will also be encouraged to publish the game's code under an OSI-approved license. Questions? Ask away, this is a massive opportunity for a game developer so remember you only have 2 weeks to apply!
