Yes here are the final scores for the 2nd PGD Challenge Competition: The Journey. Sorry for the extremely long delay in getting these scores put together. We'll be making sure that we avoid these sorts of delays in the future.
Other than that the competition was another great success as we not only had more people try their hand at making a game in about a month's time-frame, but also we were able to introduce new tools and platforms to making games with Pascal-based languages.
Special thanks to Jim McKeeth for not only being a judge this time around, but also for helping us talk to the CEO (Marc Hoffman) of RemObjects Software. A very big thanks to Marc for the offering up of the participation prizes for those that used Oxygene to make their games. Both Peter (pstudio) and Paul (Nicholls) took them up on this added challenge and will be getting themselves a fully licensed copy of Oxygene for Java each. Maybe they'll use this to create a game for the new OUYA (Android-based) gaming console?! Exciting!
I also want to thank Smart Mobile Studio creator Jon Lennart for his hurried beta release of Smart Mobile Studio to be ready for the start of the PGD Challenge.
And lastly, but not least-ly thanks again to Johannes Stein aka Stoney who has been a judge for the second time in a row for the PGD Challenge.
So without further a due here are the results...
Unfortunately one of the entries did not run for either of the judges. The Pros and Cons comments will become available from the judges soon.
Congratulations to to all those that won the top 3 spots:
1st Place: Paul Nicholls
2nd Place: Eric Grange
3rd Place: Jimmy Valavanis
And great job to everyone that completed their entries. I hope you enjoyed the challenge theme!
