The team mantra is "help make game developers sucessful when they target Intel platforms" - I love working with both the big guys, like what we've done with Codemasters on GRID 2, but I also really enjoy working with indie game developers who have a great idea or concept and will stop at nothing to see it realized. One of my favorite things all year is the Intel® Level Up Game Demo Contest.
I posted to the contest forum an announcement of the winners. I'm very excited that almost all of them will be able to join us to show of their demos at PAX Prime this weekend in Seattle. All of the winning game demos will be availabe for free download on Steam shortly. More information about all the winning demos, including screen shots and trailers can be found in the Hall of Glory.
Download and play the demos (and buy some that are already for sale!): http://store.steampowered.com/sale/levelup
All hail the victors! :)
