As we shared last week, Unigine Corp launched a Linux game development competition where any independent game teams/studios could submit a written proposal to them for a new Linux game and then later this month they will pick one submission and grant them a free license of their expensive, very advanced, multi-platform engine. There's still another week left to this competition, but we have learned some details from Unigine Corp about the submissions thus far.

Denis Shergin, the CEO of Unigine Corp, has shared with Phoronix that to date there have been ten Linux game proposals submitted since this competition began last Thursday. Of the ten proposals, one of them would become a new MMORPG (Massively Multi-player Online Role Playing Game), another is a puzzle/platform-type game for Unigine, there's yet another first person shooter, and then the rest have no defined genre as part of their submission.

When we learn more details, we will pass them along. Any game development team, large or small, can find information on how to submit their proposal to win a free Unigine Engine license in their Linux competition press release.
