This is something I'm pretty excited about. The xna3way gang is proud to announce: 

The Community Games (using XNA Game Studio)  DVD Project!

This project is a showcase of work being done by people in the XNA community. It doesn't matter if you are a professional developer, hobbyist or student. As long as your game is complete and playable, and you don't mind sharing the source code then there's room for you on the disk(s).

This is a living project, so there aren't any hard deadlines. Once enough projects are submitted to fill the first DVD, an image will be made and then work will begin on the second disk, etc... The disks will be available for download as images and will also be distributed on physical media (details pending.)

The great thing about this project is that there is no cost to be included. The only requirements are as follows:
  1. The game must be complete: playable and winnable. We aren't looking for toolkits or libraries.
  2. All source code must be included.
  3. No stolen resources (this includes art, music, fonts, etc.) If you didn't make it, you need permission to distribute it.
  4. No offensive, obscene or pornographic content. Keep it clean. No drugs, racism or sex.
A lot of people will see these games. If you're looking for a good way to get your game in the hands of a lot of people, for free, don't miss this opportunity.

Stay tuned for more information!

For now, if you have questions about this project, contact me via this blog. I'll post a URL soon with more info and a mechanism for submitting your games.
