Finnish mobile phone giant Nokia is hoping to encourage grass-roots development support for the N-Gage with the launch of Connect Coder later this month, a contest aimed at rewarding the best game concepts and demos.

The contest, which opens for submissions on September 21st, challenges developers to submit game designs and demos for the N-Gage platform, presumably created using the freely available Nokia Series 60 development kit.

Going under the rather lengthy moniker of "Nokia N-Gage Mobile Game Deck Game Battle", the contest will feature a prize pot of â'¬30k, split into prizes for â'¬15k, â'¬10k and â'¬5k. Each winning entry will also win a trip to GDC in San Jose, and a chance to meet with the N-Gage publishing team and pitch the idea to Nokia officially.

Full information on the contest will be made available on the Forum Nokia site at www.forum.nokia.com/games.
