The 2008 Microsoft XNA Dream-Build-Play Challenge has begun and its looking like its going to be a really cool competition this year. The best part is that is a worldwide competition so that means even us South Africans can win.
There is a total of $75 000 up for grabs but everyone is a winner as everyone that enters gets a free 12-month XNA Creators Club trial membership.
The goal is to develop a groundbreaking game for the Xbox 360 platform using the free development tools Microsoft Visual C# 2005 Express Edition and Microsoft XNA Game Studio 2.0. To get started I recommend reading up more information on creating games over here. Good luck to all!
