I wrote about GamesJamKanobu before – it’s basically a local version of IGF, where indie games compete for attention and some are awarded with money prizes. So, winners were finally selected in three categories and here they are.
Disclaimer: I’ve voted in design document category.
Best design document: Evolution.
Evolution sounds a bit like Black & White with RPG system and a bit of Spore mixed with From Dust. Ambitious to say the least.
Best concept art: Selenium.
I worked with Mikhail Rakhmatullin for two years and he totally deserves this award.
Best playable prototype: Maze.
I still wish creators would finish 5734L3R first.
Grand Prize: Video Hero Story
For some reason I’m a playable character in this game, so I think it deserves its victory.
