If this is not enough to catch you attention, the guys at Pixelogic have donated a license of ZBrush ($600+) as one of the prizes for the events. We have had other great sponsors, like COIL([url="http://coil.fiu.edu/"]http://coil.fiu.edu/[/url]) , Walmart, The Lab Miami([url="http://thelabrats.tumblr.com/"]http://thelabrats.tumblr.com/[/url]), come together to help make this event happen.
On another news, the Game Developers Guild has launched a campaign on Kickstarter to get some funding for GameLoop. GameLoop will be the first FREE educational magazine released by the guild and each season will take the reader from setting up the tools all the way to the completion of a game all one step at a time.
If you don't know what Kickstarter is, to put it simply. It is a site where the community gets to help the creation of projects by backing them. You pledge a small amount and in return you get some rewards. One good thing is that, if the project doesn't reach the funds by the specified date you get all your money back.
So, check it out at: ([url="http://kck.st/LnCTsX"]http://kck.st/LnCTsX[/url]) . If you really like the idea and what to see it turn into reality, pledge some money. If you cant, you cant support us by spreading the word through Facebook or Twitter.
Also, don't forget to subscribe for this FREE magazine at: (goo.gl/VxKHn). This way, you can grab a hold of the first issue when it comes out.
