Too bad I didn’t call the winners, because the 4 who won were the 4 games I thought would win. I was very happy to hear that my favorite puzzle game won the Grand Prize! Congratulations to the winners:
“Along with the cash, winning contestants have the chance to secure Xbox LIVE publishing contracts. Plus, winning games will be featured on Xbox LIVE Marketplace, where millions of gamers will have the chance to play them.”
Grand Prize ($40,000 )
Get ready to use your brain in this incredible platforming / puzzle-solving mashup! You play Tetrobot, a tiny driller robot that travels underground and drills blocks of matter to try to save your kidnapped creators.
First Prize ($20,000)
Enter a universe where you must prove yourself to a god-like figure by growing a solar system. In this open-world, sandbox game, you can nurture your planets, fight in huge space battles, steal planets, crash into objects and cause chaos.
Second Prize ($10,000)
Become the multi-functional robot Tic in this artful action-adventure game. Hover into the cosmos, evade ground minions, and drill to the world’s core to uncover the mysteries of the acorns, the molepeople, and the precious oil glade.
Third Prize ($5,000)
This fast-paced RPG/rhythm-game mashup features a voice-acted story, hand-drawn backgrounds, custom music, deep crafting and synthesis systems, and support for Xbox 360 controllers, dance pads and guitar controllers.
Congrats to all the winners! I have and love both Blocks that Matter and Sequence, and will put up reviews once I am all the way finished with them. I hope that all 4 developers can get an XBLA game out there!
