The promotion, which will award $65,000 in prizes, will test game developers’ creativity by allowing them the opportunity to design and develop unique games themed around the "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" animated series, which is based on the classic superhero created by DC Comics.
Game developers are asked to submit their "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" game design ideas, mockups and game portfolios to Warner Bros. Animation and Mochi Media for evaluation by experts from the two companies, as well as DC Comics. The deadline for submissions is March 27, 2009. Ten finalists will be selected and given two months to develop the Flash game ideas they submitted, with the finished games to be showcased on KidsWB.com in June. All 10 finalists will win a prize with the following distribution pool:
One $9,000 first prize, plus a contract for a second game worth $15,000
Four $5,000 "Choice Winner" prizes
Five $4,000 prizes
"The characters and story associated with ’Batman: The Brave and the Bold’ will spark a tremendous amount of creativity within our development community," said Justin Wong, Vice President of Business Development at Mochi Media. "It’s exciting to see Warner Bros. Animation tapping into the creativity and talent of the Flash game community to bring an original interpretation to a well-known brand."
