Dream.Build.Play finalists to be announced August 18, winners to be unveiled at PAX

win 40,000!

The top 20 entries of 2011′s Dream.Build.Play competition will be announced on an episode of Major Nelson’s Minute, which premieres on August 18 on the Xbox Live Dashboard. Just a week later, during this year’s PAX Prime, (August 26 through August 28) Microsoft will be announcing the 5 prize winners, who will be sharing the $75,000 bounty and a chance at an XBLA publishing deal.

While only 5 games get to take home the winnings, all 20 games will be playable on the show floor of PAX, with several of the developers in attendance. As any XNA developer can attest, having a game playable at a show that attracts tens of thousands of attendees isn’t such a bad prize either.
