What's this contest about?

Armed with little to no game development experience, the Brothers Campbell are attempting to make video games for a living.

The challenge is to see who can make the most successful video game on a budget of $25,000 and in one year’s time. The duel begins on April 7th, 2014 and we'll be documenting the journey.
