We are extremely pleased to announce the winner of the Winter World of the Season competition! As ever, there was a high standard of entries, but the judges were united on our winner. It is…[/color]


We’ve only got one winner this time, but the judges commended two runners-up in particular:[/color]

  • [color=#0099ff]The Annwn Simulation 1985 by b_a_start, a sprawling, fascinating mash-up of retro technology and the occult. [/color][/li][li][color=#0099ff]Locked Code by Alexis Seta, a very entertaining tale of archaeological adventures.[/color]

[color=#0099ff]All three games will be appearing on our front page very soon.

Congratulations to our winner, and heartfelt thanks to all our entrants, who have built some wonderful worlds to explore. Many thanks also to our tireless judges: Dan Franklin, Jon Ingold, Caitlin Burns, Gordon Levine, Caitlin Lill and Meg Jayanth.[/color]


Congratulations to everyone who entered! It was a pleasure to spend time with your games. :)

Thanks so much! I’m glad people have enjoyed it.

Very much enjoying the Thirst Frontier. Like the cumulative effect, and the way the qualities are obscured.

Thanks heaps to everyone who has spent time playing the Thirst Frontier and providing feedback. It kept me going.

Thanks, also, to Richard (of Fetch the Engines) who helped convince me to enter it at the last minute.

I haven’t tried Locked Code yet, but I thought Anwnn Simulation was amazing.

(And thanks for use of the SN tools. I really enjoyed making Thirst Frontier.)
