My latest vid game just won 10,500 bucks in a statewide competition. 500 for popular vote, 10k for best completed game (even though we're still developing for other platforms, seeing as XNA has been permakilled and the x360 is ollld).

:

I had guys from Disney, EA, Smartbomb (local to utah), and Chair (also local) vote and review the game. Most flattering thing was the guy who founded Chair (they made Infinity Blade), and his kids hung around our booth and went crazy over it. They gave us their cards!

Wigz is happy. Even though her name isn't wigz anymore strictly speaking.

Yeah, our site is down because we're switching services. Here's a video of current gameplay. Things are changing, particularly with making the levels more interesting with environment assets and animations...but well whatever. This won us the stuffs.

That's fantastic Wigz-who-is-not-wigz. I know it's always a good feeling to have things like that come into fruition, and actually have some big names give their info. Not to mention the video in that link looks pretty cool as well.

Thanks guys!

I'm art lead, so I've coordinated asset creation; I've done tech art and environments (with the help of one other enviro artist) and UI. Also storyboarding (i do the roughs/blocking in, someone else does the finished story slides). Also coded the website, but it be borked!

We're doubling the length currently and adding new art/mechanics and porting into Unity so it'll be at least a couple months. Now that we've won this, I think we're giong to shoot for some of our stretch goals like releasing the level editor.
