Thanks to everyone who entered our latest Casual Gameplay Design Competition, our 9th to date. Each competition we have hosted here at Jay is Games has blessed us with an array of unique, original games to play, rate and discuss. This time we asked browser game developers to design a game around the theme of "FRIENDS", which resulted in 15 very creative entries from all over the world.
Today marks the end of the competition, and our kind and sincere thanks go out to each and every one of the participants, the judges for helping to score the entries, and to the players for enjoying the competition entries and for leaving constructive criticism and praise in the comments.
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 co-sponsor: EA2D for their support (Thanks, Elliot and Ethan!). It is due to the efforts of these people that we have the following prizes to award, so please show them your kind support as well.
The judging for our competitions is carried out by the JIG community at large, and all the games were scored based on theme, appeal & fun, innovation, composition, and technical merit. We appreciate the effort everyone put into judging the entries fairly and objectively. The results of your efforts are presented below.
And now, to the game designers who have made this, our 9th, competition a success. We appreciate and applaud your efforts and your dedication to the art of game design and to the creation of casual gameplay.
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 to have been able to hold so many competitions and share your works with the world at large.
