With 77 points, Nerlaska's impressive RPG Monster Hunter has won the first prize, closely followed by Karoshi's platform game Malaika - Prehistoric quest and a shared third place between Imanok's Traffic Jam and Daniel Vik and Vincent van Dam's puzzler Sudoku. The MSXdev jury consisted out of three members:

Their hard task was to divide a maximum of 99 points to each game. For the complete results - including motivation of the jury - you can head over to the MSXdev'06 status page.

hurray for boobies! And for the expected winner of this year. Monster Hunter just steels the show.
(just like UU and TheCure last year!)

There were many pt3 songs this year, along with a lot of ripped gfx and sfx (hey, yer talking to the sfx meister here, all your sfx are belong to us). 19 entries, and 19 totally different ones. Really good dev this year.

IMHO results were quite fair. A impressive compo. Most games are very well done. I wonder if we'll still see the other games that were not ready in time...

...and I also wonder what this year's compo will show. Wink

Another successful edition of the MSXdev contest! Smile

I read that Nerlaska plans to release a revised version of Monster Hunter in Shockware. I will buy it.

Good judging report. Some surprising results. Mainly because originality seems to have affected the result quite a bit here and there. But the top games were very well deserved. I was quite surprised to see rnff so far up there though. Especially with the level 12 bug in there. We will have that fixed. We won't be adding any features though, since it was never meant to be an extensive and polished game.
