If you’re a Unity developer, we’ve got great news. Unity and Microsoft announced a new collaboration at last month’s Build Conference, and to celebrate we’re sponsoring a game-building contest with big cash and prizes for the winners.

Submit your most impressive, awe-inspiring, addictive or just plain fun game — something you’ve just developed, or a game you’ve already put out there – and you could walk away with a pretty sweet reward. More than $100,000 in prizes will be awarded overall.

The new collaboration was highlighted today with the release of Unity 4.2. This includes a Windows Store add-in that brings the Windows Store and Windows Phone 8 platforms to all Unity developers. The add-in is available in the free version of Unity, or as a free add-in for the Pro version – making it easier for all Unity developers to bring 2D and 3D content to Windows games.

So don’t waste a moment to get going on your entry. The Unity beta program started a few months ago, giving early adopters a head start – more than 50 titles have already been published for Windows Phone.  Check them out here.

For contest details, terms and conditions, and signup info, visit http://unity3d.com/contest/windows.

Show us your stuff. Get creating, start building or porting your game, then enter it here. We’re rooting for you – because some very talented, very lucky developers are going to be showered in more than $100,000 in prizes very soon!
