Unsigned Games (Indie) Runner Up - X-Fire (Uni. of Ballarat)
Unsigned Games (Indie) Winner - Frost (AIE)

Also, well done to all those guys who developed games individually for the unsigned games indie (i.e. knockoff, and the guy who gave us the free monitor!) I think they deserve a mention too, shows a great deal of self discipline and determination. Also well done to those guys who developed games outside their uni/college courses.

Enjoyed chatting to most of the guys around the unsigned games comp, and also the Australian Idol stlyeee Pitchin' Indies, just where was Dicko?

cheers

Matt

Halfbrick did "Fuzz and Rocket", and oldschool platformer which looked and played damn well and old-school...

wanted to say that the guys at White noise have the coolest dev toys! I want to use that level editor damn it! [:D]

Yeah, I didn't have that great a look at their stuff, although it seemed really cool...

I wish them luck tho, and it would be cool if they came onto sumea every now and again.

Glad to hear it was liked, that was the first time Malus and myself worked on sprites.
