FunPlus Announces IndiePlus Mobile Game Contest

FunPlus announced their very first mobile gaming competition today that will feature a $10,000 grand prize. The new competition, “IndiePlus Contest”, is one in which games are judged based on the experience of users with the games, and most of all, just how fun they are. The contest will be judged by a panel celebrity gaming judges—including such notable gaming figures as Adam “Atomic” Saltsman (Canabalt, Hundreds), Louis Castle (Dragon Strike, Boom Blox, Blade Runner), Rami Ismael (Ridiculous Fishing) and Nathan Vella (Superbrothers: Sword & Sorcery EP, Super Time Force)—will also pitch in their opinion on development facets such as design, sound, multiplayer modes, and how all of the above effect just how much the player enjoys a mobile game.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
