If and only if the winners are based on submission score. Going by the last Game Jam, I'd say any of the games have a good chance of winning. Personally, I'd pick a game like:
Over Glaiel's just because it fit the given theme perfectly, and the concept is fairly interesting (has a lot of room for further development and tweaking).
Sure, Glaiel's game was very well made, polished and fun, but it felt like the theme was built around the game to me. And, even though very well made, it's a vertical shooter with a formation mechanic that honestly didn't do much and felt gimmicky. Instead, I think it would have been better to have a not-so-polished game built around the formation mechanic.
My two cents.
