Nice job everyone!

That is some serious glory you've got going there JustinFic. Congratulations for totally dominating uDG. Rasp

Congrats to all. Smile


uDevGames 2008 Winners - AnotherJake - Mar 16, 2009 04:27 PM

Big congrats to everyone who entered!

I'd really like to offer a special congratulations to Hairball for getting first place in the Story category. I believe it was well-deserved, but above that, you achieved that after joining here just a little over a year ago with (as far as I can tell) only some skills with Cheetah3D (which were pretty fresh too). All the way to Unity3D and a winning entry in uDG... Wow! Grin

Justin is Champion! Congrats to all. I really enjoyed entering this contest. A big thank you to Carlos for all his hard work!

You did hold second well, though. Cool

Thanks, I'm proud of that. It was some stiff competition. I really enjoyed playing all your games, both this year and in past years.

Congratulations, everyone. :-)


uDevGames 2008 Winners - JustinFic - Mar 16, 2009 05:29 PM

Wow guys. To say I'm honored would be an understatement!

Big congrats to all-- the entries were amazing this year. A lot of full, polished, very fun games, and many from first timers. I'd like to see how many of this year's entries end up going commercial, because they totally could. Big thank-yous as well to Carlos and all the folks who volunteered for the contest. You guys all rock my world.

Congrats! Very obvious winner Rasp

Not that I have anything agin Mr Fic., or his game, but how did it end up winning third place in "Best Story"? When there isn't a story in the game.... Huh

Nothing else had a story. Rasp
I think it did have a story. Huh

Humongous thanks to everyone who voted for Manuev'It!: It did better than expected!

I'm happy to see Chasm Bowling (my favorite entry) score well.

Also, nice job Mattness for Constellation, another of my top-three favs. (but darn you for keeping me out of 2nd place in two categories ... WinkLOL )

Big thanks to Carlos for putting this whole thing together, thanks to everyone who gave feedback and thanks to my boss who, do to slow business, cut my work week by one day giving me more time to work on my entry.


uDevGames 2008 Winners - Shunter - Mar 16, 2009 05:36 PM

My bad, I appear to have an old version rofl. Ah wells, my votes didn't seem to do much anyways Rasp

And there I was contemplating on putting a story in... I guess here's a hard lesson learned. Somehow I still manager to score 4.13 in the category, though Wink


uDevGames 2008 Winners - mattness - Mar 16, 2009 05:40 PM

One game conspicuously absent from the list is Reclaimed by Andy Korth. It was an ambitious project, but I think what he accomplished was amazing.

No one has showed interest in my spare copy of Director yet, so I'd like to offer him first crack at it if he's interested. I know he said he wanted Unity in the prize discussion thread, but Director does a lot of the similar things, it might work for him.

Another game I think really deserves some credit is Stealth Man by Mark Thomson. If Andy passes and Mark is interested I'd like it to go to him.

While I can't remember what I gave LaserFace for story (Maybe in my top 5 in that catagory?) for me it was the way what little story it had was presented: The giant amoeba type thing zooming in, dwarfing the earth. And upon failure the ominous "Doomsday Odious awaits us all" message. Memorable stuff .. Smile
