Treasure Hunt 2010 Winners Dec. 6th, 2010 @ 03:06 PM Reply

The Treasure Hunt round-up has resulted in two weeks of massive posts, so this final announcement may be anti-climactic in comparison... Sorry.

Best Undiscovered Movie

Discovered by: TomaO2

Best Undiscovered Game

Discovered by: Elfman-Rox

I want to note that user feedback did play a large part in these choices, and the testimony by Zombie-Pimp alone almost escalated A paedophile story to the top movie position, but not quite. If you agree with him YOU HAD YOUR CHANCE!

Each winning submission will receive $200 and an additional $200 will go to the person who discovered it, or to their charity of choice, as TomaO2 has chosen to donate his winnings.

If you missed the previous Treasure Hunt posts, here they are, one last time:

1. Platformers and Run 'n Guns
2. Skill Games, Shooters and Assorted Wackiness
3. Puzzle, Fighting, Strategy, Sim and Adventure Games
4. Comedy - Parody
5. Comedy - Original
6. Naughty and Weird
7. Music Videos
8. Action and Series
9. Other Movies

The Treasure Hunt round-up was based on a quattuordecillion suggestions in this thread.

If you got the animation chops, RicePirate is organizing another 24HRC! The last two were awesome:

Time is running out to vote for the Best of November! Check your account page to see if you're on the voting panel. Winners will be announced later this week!

Paging Doctor Seuss wasn't that good, the voice acting really annoyed me.

I agree, and I thought I remembered seeing it on the front page a couple months back.

Tom I went to vote a few days ago and discovered this.

What is the meaning of this?

Congratulations, winners, though.
Also TomaO2 is a good guy, I'm happy about what he decided to do with the money.

In before Luis

I wrote the script for Paging Dr. Seuss, and I just wanted to say thank you!!! We're really proud of how everything turned out, and extremely grateful for all the attention it's gotten as a result of this treasure hunt! Yes, it was frontpaged, but only after the treasure hunt was underway. The amount of views and reviews skyrocketed, and I feel a good deal more confident in my writing ability. Thanks so much, everyone!

Hurray, I finally won!

Sadly, no money for me because I am donating to a good cause as soon as I confirm the link I want it sent to. :(

Ah well, maybe next year. ;)

Pedophile's Story... I remember when I first watched that one. I disliked it, actually. I'm glad it didn't win but I will admit that it was memorable.

Also, the winning flash was NOT frontpaged months ago. Don't even try and pretend otherwise.

It had only 8000ish views before Tom posted it on the Front Page as a result of this contest. Normally, it was made too soon to be on my list, every other flash on that list was over a year old, but I could tell that this needed to be mentioned because dispite only 8000 views it had OVER*80* reviews. That is a stunning ratio of 100 to 1, almost unheard of, especially for a flash with so few views. I KNEW that I had to add it to my list. Even I couldn't have anticipated the results though.

This flash has, quite simply, benifited the most out of ANY flash ever to become a finalist in the Hidden Gem contest. No one has come close to gaining 100k views from the exposer this contest has provided. Not only did it get a hundred thousand but it even got up to the top ten in best rated flashes of all time, it's fallen since then but the achievement is notable.

I think that the people spoke strongly that this flash was a true gem. Don't go all sour grapes because the one you liked most didn't make it.

Besides, like Tom said, you had your chance to talk up the flashes you liked more :P


Collecting NG's undiscovered gems has been a hobby of mine since 2005. I am curently posting them on my blog.

Feel free to check them out and tell me what you think.

Hurray, I finally won!

Sadly, I'm keeping all the money for myself and am putting it toward buying a new computer :(

Ah well, maybe I'll support a good charity next year. ;)

Pedophile's Story... I never watched it.

Also, the winning flash was NOT frontpaged months ago. Don't even try and pretend otherwise.

It had only 4000ish views before Tom said, 'Elfman, you're so awesome, you win best place'.

This flash has, quite simply, benifited okay out of ANY flash ever to become a finalist in the Hidden Gem contest.

I think that the people spoke strongly that this flash was a true gem. Don't go all rotten bananas because the one you liked most didn't make it.

Besides, like Tom said, you had your chance to talk up the flashes you liked more :P

Thanks to TomaO2 for giving me a nice little format to use there

Goddamn, I'm not angry that the Dr. Suess flash won something, I just remembered watching it a long time ago and figured it was on the front page because I usually stick to watching front page movies.

It felt odd, not participating in this shindig this year.
Better start saving the good ones up for next year, I guess.

Best Undiscovered Game

: Discovered by: Elfman-Rox

Wow - really cool game! I just finished it, and it definitely needs a few medals to call some attention to it.

Definitely deserving of the Treasure Hunt award.

There is some sort of story behind that but I forget what it is. I think it's related to updates to the icon system.
