iDevGames (www.idevgames.com), in connection with Freeverse Software (www.freeverse.com), announced the winners of the OMG (Original Mac Games) Cup 2005 contest yesterday. The OMG Cup's challenge was to create fun Mac OS X games with a focus on gameplay. In a successful inaugural year, the contest drew thirty-six developers from around the globe—competing for cash prizes and games from Freeverse Software, pro-level file services from PureStatic, (www.purestatic.com) and fame. The public voting phase, which determined the six finalists of the OMG Cup 2005, concluded on December 15. Voters were asked to download (http://www.idevgames.com/contest/downloads) entries and score them between one (1) and ten (10) on the criteria of “gameplay.” Finalists are as follows: 1. Escort Wing (William Hogben, Stephen Johnson) 8.72 2. Nball (Matteo Guarnieri) 8.28 3. MacBornes (Alexandre Colucci) 8.27 4. Tracktor Beam (Will Thimbleby) 7.88 5. Pawns (Matt Diamond) 7.86 6.

If you have questions, our community is ready to help you port/develop a Mac OS X title (see http://www.idevgames.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=62). For those of you who are also gamers (aren't we all?), some of the entries in the OMG Cup are cross-platform, so be sure to check them out. Cheers, p.s. I respect all platforms, so no platform barbs. ;)
