Child of Eden promotion sees Mizuguchi judge music-themed entries

Ubisoft has partnered with gaming portal Kongregate to offer a $10,000 first prize for a new game development contest, to promote the release of the forthcoming Child of Eden.

Game director Tetsuya Mizuguchi will act as a judge in the Experience the Music contest, with organisers challenging entrants "to electrify the senses by creating a game that synchronises music and unique gameplay".

As the spiritual sequel to Rez, Child of Eden is the latest in a long line of Mizuguchi titles which prominently feature interactive soundtracks, including puzzle game Lumines and Space Channel 5.

The grand prize is $10,000, with second place winning $3,000 and third place $2,000. Initial entries will be voted on by the Kongregate community, with the top 25 entering a final round of judging overseen by Mizuguchi and GameSpot editor Ricardo Torres.

Entries are being accepted until June 21, with further information available at the official website.

Nice! Big Publisher like Ubisoft, EA, Activision etc. should do this even more often to support good youngsters.

I wonder if entries will be limited to US contestants since the prize is in Dollars. Any more information on this competition?

It seems to follow standard Kongregate payment (it's always dollars), meaning anyone can go for it.
