The guys from Clay.io (supporters of the first js13kGames competition) have started their own compo for students that are (or want to be) also an HTML5 game developers. There’s over $10,000 in prizes, so it’s a good idea to check it out, learn making games and actually finish one.
The first place will win $1,500 in cash and some other useful bonuses like GitHub accounts and Construct 2 licenses. Visit the competition website to read more or check out this blog post. The compo will run from March 5th till April 5th and there’s a bunch of interesting people in the judges section: Christopher Weaver, Warren Spector, Gordon Walton, Tim Campbell, Fred Schmidt and Ken Demarest.
The team must be a students only and the games have to be written in HTML5. You can get a free ImpactJS license on the compo website if you want to develop a game using it. If you’re a student interested in HTML5 game development you should consider taking part in the compo.
