The results of our Cockpit Competition are in, and the decisive winner, with nearly 15% of the votes, is Justin “Crackerblocks” Smith’s Enviro-Bear 2000: Operation: Hibernation. What else can I say about this game except that it was “bear-y” well made! HAW.
Really, though, the basic concept is enough to make me bust a gut, but what I really love is the look on the bear’s face as he’s grabbing at things in his car. It’s a great use of the theme, too, since it’s very hands-on (paws-on?). Humor, style, creativity, interesting mechanics, and wildlife in motor vehicles – this one’s got it all.
Here are the top ten entries of the compo:
1. Enviro-Bear 2000 – Crackerblocks
2. Okkuplektor – 0rel
3. Star Cannon – tocky, compound, and EEsoteric
4. vectorLocust – jph wacheski
5. Cockpit Crash 1984 – David Pittman
6. Flying Dutchman – astrofra
7. Vessel-IV – muku
8. Aqua Kitty Sub-Sub – moogled
9. Landfall – toastie
10. Viewpoints – agj
To be honest, when I announced the compo I wasn’t sure whether the implied third dimension of theme was going to be a problem for people. Thankfully, I was rightly shamed by the 41 games which got submitted. This was a really fun one to watch develop!
Congratulations to Justin and all the other entrants! Many thanks to everyone who participated and/or helped out with the competition. Coming up next: the one you’ve all been waiting for…
