“Project Anarchy was created to eliminate the barrier of entry for developers to make quality mobile games easily and affordably, and the Development Challenge is one more step towards inspiring the community to develop creative new titles using this powerful tool-set,” said Ross O’Dwyer, Head of Developer Relations at Havok. “It’s exciting to see teams take to these tools, and build mobile games with the scope and ambition usually seen on consoles and PCs. Best of luck to all of the developers entering the competition. We look forward to seeing some more great titles made with Project Anarchy.”

Ten finalists will be announced on June 16, 2014, with the final winners being announced on June 24, 2014. Prizes will be awarded by a judging panel made up of industry veterans representing a variety of disciplines from art and design to programming and business.
