Great Games, Great Community, Great Contest

TribalWar and GarageGames are proud to announce a contest for a brand new site dedicated to bringing developers, gamers, and publishers together with great games: To create your account and get started head over to and use the promo code TribalWarGGE.

GarageGames is going beyond development tools to try to change the industry using the entire community of indie gamers. Great games deserve to be played, regardless of budget or bureaucracy. No one company or part of the community can do it alone. Gamers, developers, and publishers must unite to bring every essential component of the indie game process together.

Contest, Categories, Prizes

Here's a link to the contest categories and prizes, which include a 4G iPod Nano and 2 free passes to the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco!

If you're reading this the contest has already started, this round ends on February 5th. GGE will be having a new contest every week leading up to a two week contest after its full release to the public on March 4th, so there will be plenty of chances to win increasingly great prizes.

Gamers Wanted

Why are we giving away so much free stuff to a limited group of people? GGE is a community site, and therefore requires active community participation to thrive. We have the content, and now we're looking to get the gamers. Without gamers -- developers would have nobody to show their stuff off to. Gamers on GGE aren't limited to playing games that have already been posted. If a game can be found, it can be posted -- there are few limits to the games that community members can add. Having a large initial user base comprised of developers and gamers will help to ensure that GGE will indeed result in a site that is dedicated to being the catalyst that drives the video game industry into the next generation of gaming.

Promote, Network, Discover, Download, Play

The goal of GGE is to be an all-in-one community for everything a lover of great games could want from a site. Promote your game; network with other developers and gamers; discover new games and old favorites; download free games and demos, or make yours available to others; play games and share your passion with an active community created for that very purpose.
