Woot, so many games to try out! :-)
Hopefully I'll participate with Ancient Beast next edition.
im thinking about voting for both sintel and super blender galaxy, and that one of them will win.
May the best win!(obviously ;) )
edit isnt working so second post!!
Super Blender Galaxy smells like cease & desist letter from Nintendo... a MAJOR breach of copyright if you ask me. And that folks, would be really bad publicity for Blender.
The author is obviously talented and I see no problem with little private mario clones in general as copying existing material is one form of learning but taking part in a competition and possibly winning it due to 8 year old wiitards voting for it. Shouldn't the award be handed for the Mr. Miyamoto or am I missing something?
@Sega does what Nintendon't
Yep, I agree a 100%
& @Mr Blender
Yep, the edit-function isn't working ;)
@Sega does what Nintendon't 1, I love your username and 2, I heartily agree - having said that the gameplay and camera are flawless. Still stuck on those boxes on the second level though.
Sega does what Nintendon't: Don't worry, the author is changing the characters to his own to avoid the copyright issues.
I would disagree that it would be bad publicity - one guy remakes a game, using blender, that took ages for Nintendo to make in the first place.
Super Blender Galaxy is one of the best entries out there in my opinion. I don't really care about copyright in this case because it was originally an educational project of Carlos.
I hope he wins.
Generous competitors, please, add videos and more screenshots. Unfortunatelly not everybody have enough time to check every game (now here is a lot of games).
@Core43 - screenshots link is broken.
BTW - I can't get Super Blender Galaxy's idea... Why not to create own characters? Own mood and design.
Asteracers is the nice looking game but controls aren't comfortable and preferably to have more views (from nose, cabin, tail) because it's default view is really bad for playing. Also it may have some more physics thus 1500MPH speed can't be really able to turn a racer on 180 degrees that fast. It must be a very big radius.
I liked The Chronicles of a Ghost Driver - the idea is really cool and video is very promising. I'll play with this game later.
Sorry that I didn't wrote anything about other games. Some of them I decided to play later and some of them I didn't liked just seeing screenshots. So better to add links on videos.
Luckily Nintendo is very lax about fan projects based on their games. Just look at Mario Crossover. While it would have been nice to see an original concept, it is still a very impressive display of the BGE.
I get the message below on every link except the game "Overkill"

I'm getting the same as Lynchy's post above.
looks like some promising games, and once it's up again I'll be sure to check them all out and vote.
Everybody seems to have reached their bandwidth cap !
No way anybody else could even try to really vote fairly for any of these games !
I can't vote if I can't see them, damn bandwidth, get some blogspot or something please!
Sadly Traevaine Entertainment has been disqualified :( :(
The servers are down :(
Search through the topics of the games on blenderartists then :)
Dang i should have downloaded more last night ARGH i feel like an idiot
lol they got blendernationed
shouldn´t it be 2011???
Hmm, seems like many teams neither have released linux versions nor the game-blendfile to make the games run on every platform :(
Sorry guys, the website bandwidth is down. I'm not sure how to fix it. I'll see about uploading the files somewhere else.
We need a mirror! lol
Go to the VOTING thread and visit PAGE 3, on the top of it you will find a conclusion of the entrants and their entrys in LINK format, leading to their personal blenderartists threads and/or downloads :)
YEAH thanks bart
now downlaod more games before it dies out again!! ;)
@Bart thanks a ton for updating those! :)
Thanks for the links!
But as Scott has pointed out, some games are Windoze-only - only exe, no blend file, no other platform...
That's sad, Blender itself being open and cross-platform...
Of all the games that I could start on Linux, Accelerated Delivery is definitely my favourite. A fun and very playable little game. with a unique concept and nice music. It will be very enjoyable once I can continue the game at the level I last finished at (now it's a blend file, so I have to start at the beginning each time I run the file). Also, it would be nice to be able to move the camera up and down, now it's just left-right.
Bravo, congratulations everyone.
Super Blender Galaxy looks amazing and it looks like the camera and gameplay is implemented really well.
