So the contest has ended! And I was one of the judges

The theme "Tell a story" was interpreted differently from entry to entry. I'd like to share the results and thoughts about the contest

The first place goes to The long way home (CG sky). The game is made almost professionally: everything is completed, the game is in a harmony with itself - sounds, animations, visual parts and story telling - it is a pleasure to play it. I can add that by looking at it, the graphic style reminds me of Firewatch and Minecraft

I'd LOVE to see something like that made with Blend4Web. Seriously, it's so cool!

The second place goes to an entry with, IMO, the best storyline - City of Time (Nicholas_A). Under the raging sun we (hiding in shadow and eating.. cactuses) are exploring the ruins and artefacts of a lost city which once was a heaven. And with every artefact we are learning the city's ancient language. I won't spoil it more, just want to say that it is a really fresh idea which is done really well and has a very convincing ending. Plus - very, very good sound acting

The cons. Graphics. Physics is a bit laggy. Mechanics with eating cactuses, as I think, doesn't fit very much, it'd be more understandably to try find water instead.

Overall it was really good and interesting experience. Second place deserved!

The third place goes to The Hole (Smoking_mirror)

Let's remember Silent Hill! Seriously, this game gives me strong SH vibes! Very nice atmosphere which is complemented by very cleverly picked pixelization. Third place well deserved!

Here's an Official contest ending topic.. Feel free to check videos, read judge's comments and see actual scores, etc.!

Hope to see you in next BGMC Contests!
