by Rob Zwetsloot

Submit your game ideas and prototypes to Mozilla and you could win a trip to GDC 2013 and much more

Mozilla are keen to highlight how open Web technologies can be used to create video games, and to that end have started a competition for budding game designers, Game On. Simply proposing your ideas and submitting your prototypes could help you win big.

The main prize is an all-expenses paid trip to GDC 2013 in San Francisco, one of the biggest game developer conferences in the world. As well as this, winners will get:

The chance to have your game featured in the Firefox Marketplace
The opportunity to show your game to the awesome folks at Chillingo for potential publishing on their network
One year membership to top industry associations IGDA and UKIE
Promotion of your game in the Game On Gallery and across Mozilla networks
Plus special edition Mozilla swag

You can submit your game right now, with the deadline for submissions on 24th February 2013. Mozilla are also starting to host their own game jams in New York and London, starting this weekend.

“What if we looked at games as open, creative systems that, like the Web itself, are hackable by design?” says Mozilla’s Chloe Varelidi. “Games are traditionally at the forefront of tech, continually pushing the envelope of what’s possible,” she says. “Mozilla is inviting you to re-imagine the Web as the console, and use the power of the browser to revolutionize the way we make and play games.”
