Stencyl Jam Winners 2012-08-10 12:51:20
Attention artists! Don't miss Comic Jam 3, the weekend of August 24th!
Clock Day is Wednesday, August 15! There is prize and preloader info on the Clock Day 2012 page.
Stencyl Jam 2012 was simply amazing, with tons of great games joining the competition. We ended up with a really solid top four and expanded the prize pool as a result. Here's the final order:
1st - $500 - A Tale of Colours
A Tale of Coloursby SavePointJohnnyExplore the land, find treasures, and discover the Gnome Legends!
An ambitious Metroidvania platformer that oozes charm and heart, with expansive levels, coin challenges and numerous upgrades. The controls can make platforming tricky and horizontal momentum sometimes causes you to overjump your goal but it's worth sticking with it and earning the double jump. From there it just gets cooler and cooler.
2nd - $400 - Reaching Finality
It's crazy how after years without many Zelda-style Flash games, we get Seedling and Reaching Finality in the same month. An epic adventure and another great showcase of what is possible with Stencyl. We were torn between which game should be 1st but A Tale of Colours managed to win by a hair.
3rd - $300 - 100% Complete
Fiendishly clever and tons of fun, 100% Complete won the audience vote and was the most popular of the Stencyl Jam entries. Once you start unraveling the secrets it's really hard to stop.
4th - $200 - Tanooky Tracks
Tanooky Tracksby BeardshakerGamesTanooky Tracks is an original point 'n click game with lots of puzzling goodness!
Some of the most beautiful art of ANY web game, with great puzzles to boot! Tanooky Tracks already existed as a game but the developers remade it with Stencyl to demonstrate the power of the platform.
Congrats to the winners and thank you everyone who participated! We'll continue to front page more of the remaining entries and are planning another Stencyl competition for the launch of Stencyl 3.0!
