Exciting day for Israel based Mo’minis: the company has launched its new website offering an DYI mobile game studio and announcing GameCast #1 – a rapid mobile games creation contest. The company partnered with Sun Microsystems and Orange Israel in an effort to encourage the creation of original mobile java games.
Apart from cash prizes of $1000-$2000, GameCast #1winners will receive significant publicity and distribution of their games through Orange’s WAP Portal in Israel.
According to the press release forwarded to me, the Mo’minis Studio is designed mainly for games and flash developers but creators with no programming knowledge can also give it a shot (you might want to use the video tutorials to get up to speed).
You can download the platform here. Below are a few screen shots of Mo’Minis Studio:
