Game Design Competition #4SwitchballSierra OnlineWe are just two weeks away from the deadline for our Casual Gameplay Design Competition #4, and I have to say we're getting pretty excited about what is shaping up to be our biggest competition ever. With over $6000 in cash and prizes to give away, we're also looking forward to reward the best game designs that incorporate the "ball physics" theme.

The ball physics theme was, in fact, inspired by the amazing ball physics of Switchball, a casual game download published by our lead sponsor for the competition, Sierra Online.

Switchball is a gorgeous game that includes realistic ball physics and 4 different types of balls, each with its own unique behavior. The game requires you to switch between the various balls to solve puzzles and to complete each level. Be sure to check out our Switchball review since it is also a prize that will be given to every prize winner of the competition.

Highlights of questions that have come up during the past week include:

  • May we submit a game as a team? And if so, how would prizes be awarded? - Yes, you may enter as a team. However, we require a single shipping address to ship any prizes to. Splitting up any prizes won is left up to you and your team to work out.

We're getting down to the wire! It's time to wrap up development of those game features and start putting on the polish as you ready the game for a final round of testing. Good luck! =)
