Luxtoberfest 2005 Charges to an End
7:50 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | 2 comments

Luxtoberfest 2005, SillySoft Games' yearly Lux competition, is hosting its final matches and awards ceremony this weekend.

The month-long event pits the highest-ranking Lux players against each other in a variety of internet matches. Tournament games take place every Saturday and Sunday at 8 PM GMT in the month of October, and by the end of the month, players with the best rankings are declared the contest winners. Awards are also given out for best user-created map, best AI, and a number of other titles.

Of the hundreds of players involved, over sixty players from all over the world have ranked in this year's competition. This year's prizes include a collection Mac and PC software donated to the event, including shareware utilities Audio Hijack, BBEdit, and Chronic Logic's award-wining platformer Gish.

Lux is a Risk-inspired strategy and domination game. Players move their armies across vast landscapes in an attempt to conquer and hold strategic countries around the map. The game is won when all the countries on the map are conquered by a single player. Lux features over a hundred different maps, a superior computer AI, network play, and an internet player ranking board. Registration for the shareware title, available for the Mac, PC, and Linux platforms, is $24.95 USD.

To learn more about the competition, or to try out a free demo of the game, head on over to Sillysoft's official Lux website:
