Honorable Mentions

After two weeks, 139 teams and 70 games,[3] the finalists were:[4]

The Black Death

  • Developed by Charming Dudes
  • Members: Richard Matey, Brenton Sewell, Dan Williams, Nicklaus West, Ben Braman
  • Texas, USA
  • Genre: 3D First Person Action

Black Death looked absolutely stunning, in the same vain as a polished, months in development, major studio game.

Unfortunately, its ambition meant it ran too slow on our machines to be enjoyably playable for any extended period of time, and despite the production ambition and polish present in the video, we regretfully had to chop it from the finalists bracket.

Laser Kittens

  • Developed by Humeware
  • Member: Keith Bradner
  • Texas, USA
  • Genre: Kitten-based Tower Defense

It had cats in an all out war against mice. It had comedic voice acting and impressive presentation for such a short turn around. Even moreso, its few levels were pretty well-tuned. Well done Keith!

The Bickering

  • Developed by The Grateful Zed :
  • Member: Scott Washington
  • California, USA
  • Genre: Survival-based resource management game

Targeting the personal difficulties between people during survival during an all out war as a core mechanic was a brave idea to pursue through its assumed complication. The game was quite difficult to understand and play for us to truly appreciate it beyond the concept, but we felt it worthy of inclusion here. We hope the team takes the idea further!

War Of The Words

  • Developed by Hephaestus Studios
  • Members: Wyatt Beavers, Jared Gaertner, Evan Pollino, Jason Yeates
  • Texas, USA
  • Genre: Rock Paper Scissors First Person Shooter

War of the Words is a first person shooter based on the concept of a verbal debate re-imagined as actual warfare. The player chooses one of the three classic modes of persuasion, and uses it in an attempt to ‘persuade’ enemies to their way of thinking. Each mode of persuasion is weak to one mode, strong against one mode, and ties with itself, forming an amusing paper-scissors-rock triangle. Press your advantage against enemies who are easily influenced by your arguments while strategically outmaneuvering those who would out-debate you.
