uDevGame was established by iDevGames with three underlying objectives in
mind: create, educate, and succeed. The goal is to motivate developers to
create original games for the Macintosh platform, and then to release the
source code back to the Macintosh programming community. In this way, the
participants of uDevGame actively help to educate developers (and aspiring
developers) in technologies such as OpenGL and Cocoa. In addition, the
contest helps to draw attention to those that develop unique and exciting
games for the Macintosh, as well as help introduce the best and brightest
Macintosh game development talent to development houses and publishers
