Hi y'all,

My name is Tom, and I'm helping to get out the word about Doritos' Unlock Xbox 2009. Basically, Doritos is looking for game concepts - you submit a short video pitching your idea for a game, and they pick ten quarter-finalists, then ultimately two designs (one more than the last Unlock Xbox) to develop into XBLA titles set for release next fall. If yours is picked, you help oversee the project, sit in on pitch meetings, meet with designers like Kudo Tsunoda, all sorts of fun stuff like that. Also they're going to let web voters pick one designer to win a consultant position w/ Doritos' game design team for a year and $50,000. Here's the contest site:

http://www.unlockxbox.com

If anyone has any questions about the promotion, I'd be happy to answer. Thanks!

Hi Tom! Welcome to the DC! I've been tossing around a few concepts but there's really no point since I'm about 6 months under the age requirement! Sounds like loads of fun!

By the way, you should stick around for a while, even after the contest is over. ;D We'd love to have ya!

Sounds cool, though i tend to use any half-decent ideas myself! Still, i could use the money!!

This resulted in the shameful Doritos: Dash Of Destruction, which is total pap. Still want to enter?

I'd certainly enter this, but the timing is all wrong.. don't want to be leading any design team, not when I've got a bigger plan in mind. Lol, Circy, I think the point is to get a better game than that.

Hey, for a shot at fifty grand I'd be throwing out every idea I ever had; sadly I'm barely creative enough to make a LBP level just to get the trophy

Also thanks for all the warm welcomes - I'd be happy to stick around!
