Here at HBGames, we've been looking for a new game making program to promote for a while. We tried, with Game Maker, but people weren't too interested, albeit we didn't do a very good job at promoting it! Well now a new engine has come along, and we thought we'd give it a try.

MoMinis (the Mo short for Mobile) is a suite for developing games for Android, and other platforms, of mobile phone.

They're running a contest - called Gamecast.

"The objective is simple: Build your mobile game using the MoMinis Studio and you can win the grand prize and a distribution deal! Creating games in the MoMinis Studio, an easy to learn game engine, results in games that are wholly cross-platform and ready to play on multiple platforms across Android, Blackberry, Symbian and J2ME devices."

The prize? A share of $15,000 split into three prizes, $10k, $3k and $2k respectively; and distribution deals with GetJar and SlideMe.

In order to promote this new engine, we are encouraging users to take part in this contest. We the staff will have a go too - and we've set up this forum for discussion and support for MoMinis. Feel free to share your works, write tutorials, ask for support, or just chat.

The deadline is July 10th for a rough draft, August 25th for the main deadline.

Oh, and to be nice, if nobody from HBGames ends up winning the contest then we will throw our own little prizes into the mix for the top games from this forum as voted by our members.

Note: this is a learning experience for all of us so we're all on an equal footing here. Good luck!

Interesting! Though it's sad to see that the engine is Windows only. And I don't see a Window7 version in there :(

The Vista version works on Win7 for me (although I think it switches to Basic over Aero, unless that was another program I had open at the same time).

Badly written rules are bad. Very, very bad. Notice that this topic was made 4 days ago and no one single word of explaination from MoMinis crew...

I will agree it is odd, but I have found they don't really reply to anything outside of getting started, advanced users or technical support quickly. I would probably contact support@mominis.com I have always gotten a reply within 24 hours from that email address
