OTEE has announced the winners of its
Unity Dashboard Widget Challenge. Unity is a 3D game development platform that also allows you to create Dashboard widgets for Mac OS X v10.4 “Tiger.” The contest sought to see what Unity developers could do with the software when it came to creating their own widget.
Three categories of were set up to reward the more than a dozen entries from Unity developers. The People’s Love Ballot — getting the most votes from visitors to the OTEE Web site — is Open Fire Beta 12, a Barrage-inspired game in which you lay waste to an endless array of tanks and Army jeeps as they drive by the screen, equipped with a rocket launcher and an unlimited supply of ammunition.
The runner up was Banana Warehouse, in which you maneuver a forklift around a warehouse, putting crate of bananas where they belong before the time runs out.
The Grand Prix of the Jury prize — awarded by a team of specialists from OTEE — went to OverWhelmed Arena, an isometric space shooter game in which you can pick from four spaceships, two levels of gameplay and more. The runner up was Isle of the Towerguard, inspired by a sketch that the designer thought would be cool to turn into 3D and walk around in.
The Project Files of Deep Wisdom prize went to developers who open-sourced their projects. The winner is SpaceDoc, in which you must find vessels damaged in an asteroid field and recover their passengers. OTEE said the project shows “impressive use of scripting concepts such as co-routines and some good design.” The runner up is Sol System Defender, an arcade-style shooter set in outer space. “This project contains several good ideas and has an interesting structure,” said OTEE.
