And we have a winner

I’m happy to announce the close of the first Digital Man competition. We went from 62 nominees to just over 20 finalists, and with the closing of the polls last week we have narrowed those 20 down to just 1.

Alien Arena has won the competition. Congratulations to the developers of Aliena Arena and its gaming community for their continued support. Their community mobilized an impressive voter-turn out that rivaled that of the 2008 election.

There are other games populating the finalist list which we believe have shown their strength in the open source gaming world, and we may contact them alongside Alien Arena to discuss possible porting. All those games which were nominated should be proud of their development teams and their communities.

The turnout was great, the competition intense, and the results clear; Alien Arena has conquered the Digital Man.
