Few days back we wrote about Liberated pixel cup, a game development competition by Creative Commons, OpenGameArt and the Free Software Foundation.
Now, Mozilla has also joined the project as a sponsor. Mozilla is coming in with a lot of contributions to Liberated Pixel Cup, including a large financial contribution, expressed interest in providing assistance to the development portion (particularly in HTML5 games), and several other areas.
Mozilla will also be using their Toronto and London offices for Liberated Pixel Cup events. A new HTML5 specific category to the code side of the contest will be added and Mozilla will also provide guidance to HTML5 coders.
With Mozilla's backing, LPC has reached its initial goal and now they are only $1k away from their target. So donate if you can.
All the games and art assets will be made available freely under open source licenses once the competition is over.
