Binary Eval – We are offering everyone participating around the world our binary eval ( full featured binary ) for use during the event. The eval will convert into a demo version the Sunday after GDC (March 14th) so that you have time to show your goods to everyone in San Francisco. Come visit us at GDC and show us what you’ve made –we love that stuff. The binary is available now on our site so you can start practicing with our tool set.

Dinner w/ the Strategy Team – The Torque strategy team, Matt, Derek, Michael, and myself will look at all of the games at 5:00pm on Saturday. If we think your game has the most potential for fun ( hard to tell at that stage), we’ll take your team out to dinner at the casino buffet. It’s on us.

Lou Castle Presentation – We will be starting the event at 4:00pm PST at the Red Rock Casino conference center on the 5th floor. We filmed Lou last week (he will be out of town unfortunately and won’t make the event) giving a presentation on rapid prototyping. It’s a great way to start. He has a lot of experience prototyping games and the video is very, very, informative.

Engine Giveaways – We will be giving away 3 copies of full featured Torque3D (non-binary) and 7 copies of Torque3D binary. To win, e-mail us at ggjattorquepowered [dot] com right now! Licenses will be given away in order we receive the e-mails. You must participate at the Red Rock location to receive your prize. The price of Torque3D - airfare + hotel room > 0 for many of you ( sorry international folks ).

So there you have it! We can’t wait. I’ve seen a bunch of game design ideas scribbled on white boards at our office -hope they are as fun as they look.
