Contest Results [DM03]
While creator participation in this contest was not as big as DM01 and DM02, the competition was fierce. In fact, this one may go down as the closest contest in the history of the world. OK, maybe not the world, but you get my point. As always, thanks to Phil for allowing us to continue to extend your fantastic game, the creators for some delightful ARCHITECTURE, and all the players for your plays and votes. Here’s a peek at DM03 by the numbers:
- 5 creators!
- 6 maps!
- 278 votes!
- 441 plays!
On average, each map was played nearly 75 times, by 55 unique individuals, and received 45 ratings. While the number of entries decreased, each map received more plays and votes, on average, than ever before. Thanks to all who participated!
So with that out of the way, it’s time for the big award announcements!
The winner of the highly coveted People’s Choice Award for DM03 is…
Congratulations to geraldnola for “Psycodelic Dreamscape”! In addition to a Dynamite Jack t-shirt from Phil, we here at Dynamite Maps are happy to award you your choice of either the Frozenbyte Collection (Shadowgrounds, Shadowgrounds Survivor, Trine, Trine 2, Trine 2: Goblin Menace) or the Best of British Indie Bundle (DEFCON, Eufloria, Frozen Synapse, Gratuitous Space Battles, Revenge of the Titans, Time Gentlemen, Please! and Ben There, Dan That! Special Edition Double Pack)!
Additional Award Winners
We decided to give out two additional awards this time due to the fact that the Top 3 maps in DM03 all had adjusted rankings within five-hundreths (0.05) of each other. While both won points for style in interpreting the ARCHITECTURE theme, they did it quite differently.
While not all maps can win a prize, we really enjoyed all the maps. “The Castle” explored how to pull off a fun puzzle in a tight spaces, while daRt’s entry was a more typical layout, but still challenging. Finally, for those who were able to finish “Palace of Dawn”, they all seemed to enjoy it, but we were stuck (along with many others I assume) in “Where do I begin?” land. (We’d love to see a YouTube video of that one.)
