Independent Mac shareware publisher Freeverse Software dominated the 2004 Apple Design Awards, snagging three awards to take home, including the prize of "Best Mac OS X Product" for their innovative title Big Bang Chess.
The freeware chess game, which integrates with a number of Apple technologies such as iChat, Mail, iTunes, Address Book, and Rendezvous, also managed to take an award for "Best Mac OS X Technology Adoption."
Another Freeverse product from earlier in the year, ToySight, took the prize for "Most Innovative Mac OS X Product" for its integration with Apple's iSight web camera. ToySight was originally developed by Strange Flavour.
MacSoft's shooter Unreal Tournament 2004 got the nod for "Best Mac OS X Entertainment Product," rounding out the winning games on the list. Runner up in the category was Warcraft III: The Frozen Throne, the 3D real-time strategy expansion from Blizzard.
