Space Sushi Ties for 10th

Space Sushi Ties for 10th

The voting for the TIGSource Versus Competition has officially concluded (Well, it actually concluded a week ago or so but I've been too distracted to post about it) and Space Sushi tied with X-Bones, and Tetris Fight Club for 10th place with a whopping 6 votes. There were 80-something entries for this competition, so barely scraping into the top 10 is pretty decent!

The big winner from the competition is 0Space by none other than Teknopants. I know that local multiplayer is very rare, but if you ever get the chance to go head to head with someone on the same keyboard then definitely give 0Space a whirl, and while you're at it you can also give the other 80 or so games a chance too. (If you have an entire day to kill, I guess.)

The idea of versus was a great competition theme, but it kinda falls short because not a lot of players have the opportunity to play local multiplayer on their computers. The time frame of a TIGSource competition doesn't really allow for a robust online multiplayer system for these games, so I feel like not a lot of people really got a chance to play the games this time. Also each voter only had 3 votes for 80 entries, so there wasn't a good distribution of ranks among the results (A majority of the games tied for 58th place with 0 votes.) It's definitely a lot of fun to make a 2 player game, but the severe audience reduction is definitely noticeable, so whenever I make Space Sushi Deluxe, I'll be sure to include a single player campaign. ;D
