What was more of an experiment to see what some developers might pull off with the new Beta release turned out to be just what our community wanted right now. We’re quickly approaching a total of 20 entries since first announcing the official jMonkeyEngine 3 Beta Contest. The deadline is December 31st, 2011, so there's still plenty of time to get involved.

Prizes include a free copy of the upcoming "jMonkeyEngine 3 Beginner's Guide" and a free theme from the WooThemes shop. Additional prizes might be added.

If you want to get caught up you should read the following articles:

Even if you've never used jMonkeyEngine before, 1 and 1/2 month could be enough time to put a game together if you have some experience in Java programming and game development already. We highly encourage developers to download the jMonkeyEngine 3 SDK as the recommended route to a quick start. From there the wiki and community forum are mere clicks away.

We hope this contest will bring some new blood into our lively community, and we trust you'll find it worth your while.
