This contest will introduce the new Overwolf Media API. This API will include features you can use to create custom video apps. You can capture video, cut and edit it, and much more. You can also use Nvidia's GPU encoder for powerful and smooth video capture (works on GTX 650 cards and above). Asking yourself what this API can do? Look no further than Replay HUD.
The development and submission phase of the competition starts on Aug 6th and Ends on Dec 14th 23:59 PST. Winners will be announced on Jan 4th.
Pretty much anything you can think of. Try asking around on the game specific forums, or try your gamer friends - what would they like to see? You can also use our app suggestion page.
