YoYo and community involvement. No, you aren‘t dreaming.

YoYoGames have announced that they are going to hold their first Game Maker competition. Not to be outdone by the gamemakerrace competition YoYo have announced that there will be $1,750 in cash prizes on offer, and have given programmers a month and a half to get their games done.
