Make Something Unreal Winner Announced
Some time ago, we featured the Make Something Unreal Competition and showed off some of the projects that got into the final round. Well, the whole shebang is over and the winner has been announced by the five judges, NVIDIA's Phil Wright, UKIE CEO Jo Twist, T3 man Matt Hill, the Wellcome Trust's Iain Dodgeon and Epic's European territory manager Mike Gamble.
Having grabbed first place with their futuristic ballsport Epigenisis, Dead Shark Triplepunch get the grand prize of a commercial license to use both the Unreal Engine 3 and Unreal Engine 4. Epic's European Territory Manager described the game as a 'potential e-sports' and looking at the game, you can see where he is coming from.
In second place, Polymorph, a game of floating islands with various natives species that are of interest due to some sort of genetic twist – I don't get it either - by Kairos Games, brings the silver medallist the possibility to use the Unreal Engine 3 in their future projects.
Third place goes to Beings from Team Summit. A game to spend your free-time with in a chilled out manner, Beings challenges the player to modify his animal creations to beat the levels.
On a slightly unhappy but nonetheless respectable fourth place comes Statics Games Mendel's Farm in which the player attempts to save a bankrupt farm by breeding and growing new livestock.
We at Pixel Judge would like to congratulate all four teams and wish them the best of luck for the future. Don't waste that license!
