Intel’s Indie Dev Contest

Dear GaymerX Attendees!

This year, we have been given a special opportunity to host the first ever Indie Dev Contest sponsored by Intel. We are proud to have such a large company at our back, and glad that they’ll be bringing this exciting event to the table. It’s especially great because anyone can interact, even if they’re not attending.

What does this mean for me?

It means that you, as a GX3 fan, can vote in this contest. To participate, all you need to do is determine what you think the best indie games being exhibited at GX3 are. Then you have to rep them hard! 

I didn’t come ready for a contest! What do I do?

Fortunately, the whole process is pretty easy. The contest is based on a voting system, where users both at the convention and outside of the convention will vote for a given game or games by tweeting.

So all you need to do? Get voting on Twitter! The contest window is 7:00PM on Thursday, December 10th to 12:00PM Sunday, December 13th. In that window, you want to tweet about the game you wish to vote for and include that game’s Twitter account while using the hashtag #BestIndieGX3. Every tweet made that has a given game’s Twitter @ name and that hashtag will count as a vote towards it. Voters are encouraged to vote as much as they like for a given developer/game (within reason) and are welcome to vote for as many developers/games as they wish.

For example, “Smooth Operator is the best game ever! #BestIndieGX3 @Beardogames”

So in short? Get ready to tweet about your favorite game(s) with the account tagged in it and including the hashtag #BestIndieGX. Everything else is taken care of!

Well this all sounds great? Where do I find out who won?

The winners will be announced at the GX3 Cosplay Pageant which takes place at 4:00PM on Sunday, December 13th. If you want to hear the placings, be sure to be there!

Hooray!

Yes, hooray!

We’re looking forward to this event and think it will be great for both our developers and the convention as a whole, so we hope you’re as eager to participate as we are to put it on! If you have any additional questions about the contest, entry, participation, and so on, feel free to email us at gaymerx@midboss.com and we’ll do our best to provide answers.

So much hard work has gone into this project, and we at MidBoss have tried to do as much as possible to make this major release the biggest success it can possibly be. We certainly would not be here without your support and investment in the cause. Before anything else, thank you.

The goal of our company has always been to bring diversity and inclusiveness to the worlds of gaming and geek culture. Gaming In Color is the expression of that very point of values.

If you haven’t heard about the film before, this is our queer games feature documentary we created in between GaymerX 1 and 2. From out of the closet and into the arcade, we focused not only on the issue of representation in the world of gaming but also on why such representation matters and what effect it has on gamers from all walks of life. Our crew provided so much effort to make this doc the best it could be, our cast provided incredible insight on every topic we cover, and you our fans have given us so much valuable support. We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I personally hope this project is as thrilling to you to watch as it was rewarding for me to make.

Please give it a watch, and if you like it, leave us a review! Reviews are paramount, and will seriously help the success of the film the more we get. Plus, they’re free!

In fact, if you leave us a review on at least 3 different platforms (iTunes, IMDB, Amazon, Google, PlayStation, or Xbox) and email us screenshots of them at sales@midboss.com, (reviews, not just a rating), we’ll happily send you a $10 Amazon gift card for your trouble! Limited to the first 50 entries. It doesn’t even have to be a glowing review, good or bad counts. 🙂

Also… beyond our release today, we have been telling you all that we have more platforms to come down the line. Today we can finally announce that Gaming In Color is coming soon to Steam! No specific date yet for that, but stay tuned. We hope this opportunity will allow even more people to see and enjoy Gaming in Color and what it has to offer.

Share the news with your friends, and spread the word about the film. The more people that see this film, the more the message of inclusiveness this film delivers can be spread further and further. It’s never been as important as it is now.

Thank you.

Philip Jones, director of Gaming In Color, and the whole GIC crew
