Windows Game Development Contest <- Is that an official event or should I be suspicious about it?

    Question

  •      Hi Everybody!!!

         Someone posted a link in a forum about a contest, similar to the DreamBuildPlay event that used to happen every year around these days. The name of the event is the "Windows Game Developer Contest". It's about porting an existing App from other platform to the Windows Store. The thing is that I have not been able to find if this is a real thing or just a hoax. I thought about asking, just in case - one can never be too careful with the Internet.

         Thanks!!!

  • It helps if you post the link you want to ask about, but searching on "Windows Game Developer Contest" brings up the official sites:

  •      Hi Rob!!!

         Thanks!!! I thought about pasting the link, but, if the link is a hoax as I suspected, I'd be liable for damages to those who followed it - I rather be too careful when it comes to the Internet.

         Thanks for your feedback!!! Your link "blogs.windows.com" is the only official URL that I've found!!! I'll proceed to join now! 

         Thanks again!!

         Tarh Ik.
