ComeToPlay's non-contest Flash Game Contest
I don't shill for everyone that writes in asking up to promote their product, contest, game, or site. I usually sift through the requests and add the best ones to a Mash-up. Come2play emailed us yesterday about a pretty cool contest (really a revenue opportunity) that you guys might be interested in participating in. Come2play has a multiplayer API that you can use in your games for free and to promote it, they have created a pretty generous non contest - contest. They also have distribution across 300 partner sites (including iGoogle, Facebook, Net-Games, etc).
Here are the basics in their words:
On the API
"Come2Play's open source API allows developers to create multiplayer games without having to worry about servers, hosting, ranking, chat, game lobbies, leaderboards, tokens and virtual rewards, all of which are built into the Come2Play network."
On The Contest
"To promote the capabilities of their multiplayer API, Come2Play is announcing their Non-Contest, Contest for game developers. The non-contest is simply a bonus payment based on the number of game matches recorded in a three month period after the developer's game has been launched. Come2Play will pay developers $5,000 for the first 2 million matches played in the first three months. Bonuses increase by 5 thousand dollars for every 2 million matches. So, 4 million matches = $10,000 prize, 6 million matches = $15,000 prize and so forth."
You are also able to sell sponsorships and keep all in-game ad revenue from games entered into the "non-contest". If you are interested, check out the developer section of their site.
