Today another Casual Gameplay Design Competition comes to a close, and we are fortunate to have experienced yet another outpouring of unique and creative casual games from the flourishing indie game development community. We are grateful to those who rose to the occasion and submitted an entry before the deadline, as it isn't easy creating a good game that is fun to play within a short development period.
We are here to honor all of the games that were entered, as well as award a few prizes, too. Thanks to our kind and generous sponsors: Armor Games for making it possible to award the top 3 Flash games with a prize (Thanks Dan!); King.com for their kind support (Thanks Lars!); Serene for the wonderful logo and graphics for this competition; and to everyone at Casual Gameplay for just being awesome. It is due to the efforts of all these people that we have the following prizes to award, so please show them your kind support as well.
And now, to the people who have made this, our 6th, competition so memorable. We appreciate your efforts and your dedication to the art of game design and to the creation of casual gameplay.
For the Audience Prize, this time we used the votes and ratings directly from each of the game pages. Small Worlds received almost 22 hundred votes, ranking in at a commendable 4.8 out of 5, earning it a comfortable lead and the well-deserved prize.
Once again, congratulations to everyone who submitted an entry! Just being able to complete a game within a short development period is quite an achievement, in and of itself. Moreover, your continued participation in these competitions makes future competitions like this possible, and we can't thank you enough. We consider ourselves very fortunate, again, to have received such an excellent response to our call for entries, as the entire collection of entries are all quite deserving of our praise.
