iDevGames has announced the winners of the uDevGames 2008 Contest. uDevGames is a Mac game development contest that requires teams to create a Mac game in just three months. Laserface Jones vs Doomsday Odious by Justin Ficarrotta was announced as the winner of Best Overall Game. Laserface also took the top spot in the categories of Gameplay, Graphics, Audio, and Presentation.

“I’m completely psyched. The last three months have been a rollercoaster, but uDevGames 2008 has been a really amazing experience. There’s something about the pressure of the deadline and tangling with scores of other talented developers that gets the brain juice flowing, and motivates me to create things that may otherwise have never existed. My career kicked off from uDevGames 2004, so it was a pleasure to be able to come back and compete again. Big thanks go out to Ben, Dan, Bruce and Steve who all provided awesome content for the game, Carlos and the uDevGames volunteers, fellow developers for making me sweat for it, and to all the friends, family and Mac gamers who played and voted for Laserface Jones, and spread the word!” said Justin Ficarrotta, winner of Best Overall Game of uDevGames

“With the success of the Apple iPhone and iTouch, there’s never been a better time to be a game developer for Apple’s platforms. This new found interest in gaming for Apple’s devices and computers, means that uDevGames is positioned to play a vital role in spotlighting tomorrow’s top game developers, as well as motivating our developer community to reach new heights in their programming and marketing skills. This year’s Best Overall Game, ‘Laserface Jones vs Doomsday Odious’ by Justin Ficarrotta, highlights the increadible talent that is within our community. Justin’s entry, along with past winners Turtle Turmoil, Kiki the Nanobot, Argonant 2149, and ShineBug, reinforces the mission of the uDevGames Contest — encourage the development of original Mac games while educating programmers on the pressures of the game publishing industry”, said Carlos Camacho, Editor-in-Chief, iDevGames.
