Treasure Hunt 2009 Winners 2009-11-25 11:27:59 Reply

This week's featured game is Level Up! It was developed by titch007uk using the flixel framework.

I've put together a flixel games page to showcase the power of the flixel and encourage more people to try it.

I promised we would wrap up the Treasure Hunt results before Thanksgiving, so here are your winners!

BEST GAME

The winning game is Aura Braver, a shooter that will surprise you with it rule-bending aura field system.

Aura Braver was suggested by Rhete amongst thousands of suggestions this year, so he wins the $200!

ODQ gets an honorable mention for the "A-HA!" moment when you figure out what you're doing.

There's a special place in my heart for a lot of the games featured in the experimental / retro post.

BEST SERIES

The best undiscovered Series is GNU. At the end of the day, we can see Gnu's face amongst the ranks of other iconic characters around here, so he's a legend in the making.

Gnu's author, golfinho, came up repeatedly throughout the Treasure Hunt, making him a gem in his own right!

Gnu was suggested by peixeaquatico, another gem of a user, friend of golfinho and winner of $200 for making the suggestion.

I've also decided to silence all complaints by awarding cash to the CREATORS of the winning submissions as well, so Tugoro, Kinsman and golfinho are each getting $200.

This is why NG is the best place on earth AMIRIGHT?

For anyone who missed it, the winning movie was Criminal!

Congrats to the winners!!

Aura braver's awesome but.. didn't it only get one vote? (Maybe I'm blind and/or crazy or maybe winners weren't based solely on votes).

Anyways, great stuff everyone, that was 14 days of awesome!

As soon as someone suggested Aura Braver I said it would win. It's amazing. I was a bit disappointed that the series I suggested didn't make it onto the display page, but everything else was fun. (I didn't really expect to win, but it was a good series and deserved notice.)

Thanks for the treasure hunt!

:<>!! So... I.. DO WIN $200 AFTER ALL? Wow... WOW!! I actually thought I was going to win the $200 when Criminal was first awarded, but nope that was TURDO. That kinda made me sad. But now, I get $200 along with everyone else! What a nice surprise to wake up to.

This is why NG is the best place on earth AMIRIGHT?

Surely the best place in the Universe. Thanks Tom!
