Win Cash Prizes in the Pixel Game Maker MV Development Challenge

Beginner game-development tool Pixel Game Maker MV is holding an exciting competition – build a game using their software and maybe win a cash prize!

The Pixel Game Maker MV Development Challenge encourages all of the amateur game designers out there to get creative with this powerful software.

Pixel Game Maker MV is a development tool aimed at complete beginners to game design, allowing you to build 2D action games using a simple visual programming language. It is a sister software to RPG Maker, which has been a popular program for creating turn-based JRPG-style games for many years.


Playism and Kadokawa Corporation are now on the lookout for talented creators, to build their vision using the Pixel Game Maker MV software, for the chance to win a cash prize and have your game available to buy on the Nintendo Switch eShop.

The winner of the grand prize will receive 1,000,000 JPY (the equivalent of over £7,500 GBP and over $9,000 USD), with smaller cash prizes for Side View, Top View and Multiplayer categories, as well as a Pixel Game Maker Select Award which is based on user votes.

Pixel Game Maker MV is available on PC via Steam. For more information on the Development Challenge or to apply, follow this link. You can also get more details about the software on the official website.
