Flare3D mini Challenge – Meet the winners

Friday, July 18th, 2014

The contest reached the end and we can say that it was a great experience for us and we’ll certainly repeat it in the future!
Although the contest’s goal seemed easy to achieve, the reality was different. Only three participants were able to finish their BREAKOUT’s versions. It just wasn’t right to choose two winners among three participants. Thus… we decided (only this time) to declare the three finalists as winners!

Now it’s time to meet the winners:

Tim Budds

Tim did a great Job! Basically he takes the example and turns it into a full grown game!

Respecting the traditional gameplay, his “Breakout 3D” includes 8 levels, power-ups (some of them really funny), support for keyboard and mouse and a mobile version for Android!

Gabriel Walter

Gabriel presents “Wonder Runner 3D” and we are still trying to figure out  what kind of game is it! 100% surreal, in the game you are a man running across an oneiric world searching for a golden ball… Yes, it’s a crazy idea but  has potential!

Wandah W.

Our dear Wandah is the usual suspect into the Flare3D’s world 😉 with a past proved experience using Flare3D. Wandah spent 10 hours converting our breakout example into a mix between a football game and a tower defense! The game recreates the final match of the latest World Cup game between Argentina and Germany, includes cute graphics, soccer’s sounds, splash screens, menus and runs perfectly!

It is now time to think about the future! Keep in touch, we are cooking something special for the next mini Challenge! :-)
