Create a Nintendo DS or GBA game with a winter or holiday theme. Be it Wack-a-Santa or nuclear snowball fights with diminutive elves we want to see your wintery creations.


* Original content (Satire will be considered fair use).
* All entries must run on hardware, the hardware being one of:
o Nintendo DS
o Nintendo Gameboy Advance
o Nintendo Wii or Gamecube (seperately judged!)
* Multiple entries are encouraged but only one prize will be awarded to any individual / group.
* You are of course welcome to work in teams and split your prize how you see fit.
* No emulators, media players, or straight ports of old games please (e.g. porting quake to DS will not get you many points but porting quake, designing your own winter level and letting me walk around as Santa Claus and blast reindeer would be cool).
* Judging will be at the biased discretion of the participating judges but originality and entertainment will be the main focus (and technical splendor of course). Make me laugh and I will forgive your coder “art”.
* Entries will be awarded points and the scores averaged between all participating judges. These points will be assigned based on the following judging criteria: Competition Judging Matrix
* Submissions will be accepted at anytime and can be resubmitted and updated as necessary until the deadline

Deadline is March 21th 2011 (which ever time zone you prefer, as long as it is still March 21th somewhere in the world)!
