Playing on the plane

Gamers will rejoice at this news: Virgin America Seeks Game Developers. Virgin America, which is part of Virgin Airways, is looking to distinguish itself not just by letting you watch TV or listen to an MP3:

    In preparation for Virgin America’s launch, they’ve now announced a contest for Linux game developers to create game content for their new in-flight entertainment system. The contest hasn’t kicked off yet, but according to this page, you can sign up to be notified when it does. This could be a big break for any independent or beginner developers out there who want to be seen. Check out the contest page for more detailed information.

I don't know if there are any game developers reading this, but knowing how computer games suck me in, I'm looking forward to wasting some air time in checking out what they come up with. (Thanks to David Gammel of High Context Consulting for the pointer!)
