Microsoft has a Dream.Build.Play challenge that is open to all African game developers. The challenge seeks to maximize their creativity and create experiences that engage gamers from across the world. It’s divided into 4 categories —you have the cloud-powered game category which has the highest prize money ($100,000). In this category, the developers must build a creative game that uses Azure Cloud Services on the back-end.
The second is the PC game category ($50,000), and it involves building a Windows 10 game.
Finally, you have the mixed reality game category — creating a mixed reality game experience that lets players interact with 3D volumetric content in a virtual space —and Console game category — building a UWP game for the Xbox One console family. They both have a prize money of $50,000 and $25,000 respectively.
The competition is open to all creators, working solo or in teams of up to seven.
