May 14 to July 12, 2013

Yes, this is the opportunity you have been waiting for, the ability to create a game with the world famous cartoon engineer, Dilbert.

Built with Corona SDK

You will get a chance to build a mobile game, featuring Dilbert, using Corona Labs’ Corona SDK.

The Dilbert comic strip is known for its humor around the vices, follies and day-to-day shortcomings of the white-collar office working environment we can all relate to. Now you can take this world famous character, create a cross-platform game with Corona SDK and submit it to Corona Labs to see if you win a chance to demonstrate your game (via videoconferencing) to Scott Adams. Yup, that Scott Adams, the creator of Dilbert.

And who knows what might happen next?

Our judging panel of Corona Labs experts will be looking at innovation, enthusiasm and overall quality of the submitted game.

Good luck!
