Post WIndows 8 Seeks More Game Devs, Offers Prizes



The jury's still out on Windows 8. Well, my jury isn't ' I'm dual-booting my PC with it at the moment, and I think it's a clumsy, insidious and arrogant mistake in terms of how it applies to desktop PCs, even if it much makes more sense for touchscreens. I'll admit it doesn't seem to do anything negative to existent PC games, however. More on that later, though. One thing Microsoft does want to do with Win8 is re-establish it as a gaming platform, though in terms of the iDevice app store rather than a pixel-shaded mega-shooter sort of way. To try and encourage more game development for their awkwardly bastardised new OS, Mirosoft have launched a dev compo ' with the winner bagging money, a marketing campaign and a posh trailer for their project.
