Leadwerks Game Tournament 3: "A Machine for Penguins"

We're pleased to announce the third Leadwerks game tournament. The final tournament before the release of Leadwerks 3.1 for Linux, this competition's theme is...Machines! Use the new joint motor features to build a game involving your scariest, coolest, or craziest contraptions.

WHEN: The tournament will start October 1, 2013, and end October 28th at 11:59 P.M. (Pacific Standard Time).

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Upload your game to the Leadwerks Asset Store before the end of the competition. You can also publish a video on YouTube with the tag "A Machine for Penguins" if you would like to demonstrate and explain your concept. You are encouraged to form teams, but individuals may compete on their own.

JUDGING: Winners will be chosen by the Leadwerks community in a forum poll.

PROMOTE YOUR PROJECT: Promotion is a critical part of game development. Be sure to post blogs about your progress and post updates on Google+ using the tag #AMachineForPenguins. Anyone with a Leadwerks forum account will be able to vote, so more fans equals more votes and gives you an advantage! (Other suggested tags are #ubuntu and #linux.)
