Hey! They're early. Oh well, I've now flipped the switch on our story:
Congrats everyone! And all entrants should remember that you beat Jon in the contest at the very minimum.

Huge congrats to all of you! (Najdorf, why didn't you win it all? Bad Najdorf! )
Jokes aside, I'm thrilled to see that so many of the entries were really, really good. We've all come a long way in the last few years and with this trajectoryâ€¦ wow.

Congratulations to the winners, commiserations to Najdorf -- I thought you deserved to be in the top 3.

No big deal, I'm just sad I can't brag it with my friends
I totally agree on the winner, I'm happy for the Escort Wings guys, the game has an amazing potential, and with some tweaks (like changing the ship you control at every mission, more inertia, a neat story (in which maybe you play differernt parts, like say starcraft))it will become a best-selling shareware (or retail) much more than N-Ball could have been. Great job guys!

>Congrats to all of the entrants, it was a fun contest this year
Thanks everyone for a nice contest, VERY nice games, and for less stress! OMG was a pure pleasure, and it was gratifying to receive comments like...
"This contest pushed me to 'finish' my first game!"
"Thanks to this contest, I've improved as a developer."
With luck, Kevin (MT) will build us a nice new uDevGames website to handle much of the hard work that goes into managing that contest so we can have a nice return of uDG. Of course once the dust settles from this contest, I'll need to set out a new challenge to keep you away from the real life and the opposite sex.
I hope the winners, as well as the non-winners, continue to perfect their game creation craft and do their best in making our platform & community one to envy!

Oh, just noticed that. GREAT news indeed to be on Gamasutra. Teaming up with Freeverse got us covered no doubt.
Great trophy as well (kudos to Ian)
