Microsoft and Enterbrain, the company that publishes Famitsu, are holding a contest for XNA developers where 3,600,000 yen ($40,000) in cash prizes will be awarded.


One winner in each category, Xbox 360, PC, and mobile phones will earn a grand prize of 500,000 yen ($5600). Two winners, a general developer and a student, in each category will receive second prizes worth 300,000 yen ($3350). Finally, special prizes worth 100,000 yen  ($1100) will be awarded for each group.


Are you a RPG Maker master? You can submit a game developed with RPG Maker VX or RPG Maker XP as a PC entry.


Amateur game developers can submit games to the XNA Creators Club game software contest 2010 starting today and until March 31, 2010. Judging will take place in April and hopefully sometime after that we’ll see some fresh community games on Xbox Live.

  • Jeez, if I had the time and knew how to use RPG maker VX, I’d totally give this a shot…

  • So this is open to people outside Japan, too? Hmmm Maybe I should start that Platformer in IG Maker that I’ve been holdin’ back on. But damn I’d have to work my ass off makin’ sprites, and such If I wanted to finish before March 31st…

    • Wait! Before you start drawing sprites note that this might be Japan only. :( I didn’t look at the rules in detail and just checked for a similar contest in North America.
