  1. Another venue that might be good timing: http://www.indiecity.com is just about to launch and getting your (PC/MAC) game in early will definitely earn you some sales. They hope to become the indie version of steam.

    Canadian students can also take advantage of the Great Canadian Appathon: 48hr game jam, Sept. 30th, $50,000 in prizes: http://greatcanadianappathon.com/

    Finally, I have a top secret CHARITY GAME JAM project that is under construction… more info on that soon…

  2. Web (Flash & Unity) – http://www.kongregate.com – Weekly and monthly prizes
    Web (Flash) – http://www.flashgamelicense.com – Flash games marketplace

    Then there are all the various app stores:
    Unity Asset Store: http://unity3d.com/unity/editor/asset-store.html

    In our Halloween game competition, you can win >$30
    That would suffice as a backup plan!

    /shameless plugging

  6. Killswitch says:

    Wait, I have to submit my game both in a Market Place and to this Website? 😀

    • PoV says:

      Technically you don’t have to submit here, but I can’t imagine a reason you wouldn’t want to be on our list. If you participated in the challenge, it’s basically a record of that.
