ECTS: PomPom Wins "Edge Award" for Space Tripper
9:54 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

We'd like to offer our congratulations to PomPom, the UK developer of the OpenGL-based, arcade-inspired scrolling shooter Space Tripper. The shareware title was awarded the Edge Award for Excellence at the ECTS awards ceremony, just before the show's close earlier today.


We'd like to tell you more about the award and how they were selected, but the ECTS web site (which has been soundly lambasted by fellow members of the press) has almost no information. The voting seems to have been conducted by Edge Magazine staff members, as far as we can tell.


In any case, if you haven't checked out Space Tripper yet, and you have a Mac with OpenGL-ready 3D hardware (ideally an ATI or NVIDIA card with 16 MB of VRAM) then make sure you grab the demo and take it for a whirl -- you just might find yourself looking for the quarter slot and scanning the high scores to see if anyone has bested your last effort.
