The chance to have your game featured in the Firefox Marketplace
The opportunity to show your game to the awesome folks at Chillingo for potential publishing on their network
One year membership to top industry associations IGDA and UKIE
Promotion of your game in the Game On Gallery and across Mozilla networks
Plus special edition Mozilla swag
“What if we looked at games as open, creative systems that, like the Web itself, are hackable by design?” says Mozilla’s Chloe Varelidi. “Games are traditionally at the forefront of tech, continually pushing the envelope of what’s possible,” she says. “Mozilla is inviting you to re-imagine the Web as the console, and use the power of the browser to revolutionize the way we make and play games.”
