XNA Dream-Build-Play Finalists Announced
Posted by XanTium | August 4 00:33 EST | News Category: Xbox360
From blogs.msdn.com (FYI: MS owned blog):

On behalf of everyone here in the XNA organization at Microsoft, I'm pleased to announce that the top 20 finalists in the Dream-Build-Play competition have been announced on our main contest website. Back in March we challenged the world to dream big and to go for it as you build it into reality. Not only did our community rise to the challenge but the quantity and quality of entries blew the judges away. Simply put - you all have proven without a doubt that a tremendous amount of talent and creativity lies within hobbyists, students and indie game developers. Soon, one talented team will win the grand prize opportunity to sign a publishing contract and millions will have an opportunity to play the first community created game on Xbox 360!

Special thanks go out to everyone who worked on a game - whether successfully able to complete and submit it or not. It is through your efforts and creativity that we will all experience new game creations today within the XNA Creators Club and ultimately beyond.

Looks like they made some pretty cool games from looking at the screenshots. Too bad a few aren't exactly "original"

"Blazing Birds" looks like Slime Soccer with a little piz-azz, "Little Gamers" looks like Madness Interactive on meph, and "Gravitron Ultra" is just Asteroids cel shaded.

The funniest thing I saw was that the Grand Prize Winner receives an Alienware computer, a bunch of other stuff, and a signed Xbox 360 Premium. They could have at least dropped a few more bones and bought them an Elite laugh.gif

That Blazing Angels had some nice character models. Curious how the rest of the game looks.

I agree...looking amazing. If that one doesn't win then something is up.
