The XNA team has announced Dream-Build-Play 2008, a global competition to see who can create the best game for the Xbox 360 using XNA Game Studio 2.0.  This year’s participants will be competing for $75,000 in prizes and the bragging rights to say their game was the best. In addition, one of the top ten finalists will have a chance at an Xbox LIVE publishing contract.

Prizes:

  • 1st            $40,000
  • 2nd           $20,000
  • 3rd            $10,000
  • 4th            $5,000

Last year’s Dream-Build-Play was an outstanding success as the four top entries were extended opportunities to sign Xbox LIVE Arcade publishing agreements. We will begin to see those winning games released later this year on Xbox LIVE Arcade. This year’s contest will feature Xbox360 development only and to ensure that everyone has access, everyone that registers will get one free 12-Month XNA Creators Club Trial membership.
