Developers: Enable gamepad-support for your BlackBerry 10 game to receive a free Gamepad package
on 26 Sep 2013 09:13 pm EDT
As we learned during BlackBerry Jam Asia, gaming on BlackBerry 10 is huge and it's only going to get bigger as the number of available titles grows. As most folks already know from our hands-on at GDC 2013 and Dev Blog coverage, gamepad support for BlackBerry 10 is available and developers are encouraged to implement it whenever it fits. To help spread adoption of gamepad support, BlackBerry has teamed up with Moga and is offering the following promotion for developers.
All you need to do is enable gamepad-support for your game. Simply submit your gamepad-enabled game in draft mode to BlackBerry World and you will qualify to receive a free Gamepad Package, consisting of a MOGA Pro controller and a SteelSeries controller. As a bonus, when you complete your game and it’s approved, we will add it to our gamepad-enabled feature in BlackBerry World, making it easier to discover your app.
That's a pretty stellar offer, especially if you were already working on adding gamepad support. Additionally, if you're needing more details on how to get gamepad support working, the BlackBerry Dev Blog has highlighted some of the basic steps needed on their promotion announcement post. You can head on over there for the full details and learn more about the requirements for receiving your rewards package.
