Liberated Pixel Cup Code Winners Announced 25

After a laborious judging process, the Liberated Pixel Cup has finally announced the winners of the code contest. Out of the 48 entries, Lurking Patrol Comrades (now Source of Tales), a "MMORPG with a vast world, plenty of characters to speak to, both a melee and a magic based battle system, and a polished user interface," won the grand prize. The best HTML5 game was Big Island, written in Dart and playable directly from Github. The art prizes were given last August in case you missed it. Congratulations to everyone who participated!

    Oh? How? The Big Island page has a non-clickable link (!) to the repository page, which you then have to scroll down to the bottom of . There, there are three options, and I presume the "Easy way" is meant to be the directly playable one, since there's nothing else to download according to the instructions. Click on it, however, and all I get is a black page. Does it require Chrome?

  • In the intro, there are NPCs wandering. At one point the into flew over a bridge. NPCs on the ground were blocked by the water. Two NPC's on the bridge walked right off and walked on the water.
    It may not be a bug though. The game may have two Jesuses!

      You can't write a sentence without a mistake. Now translate that to a game.

    • Don't be silly. That was obviously Jesus and Peter. Had you continued to watch, a storm would have blown in, and then one would start swimming.

    I downloaded the dependencies and compiled it.
    I registered an account and created a character.
    Comes the time to play it says "No gameservers are available.".

  • I am disappointed my project didn't win...

    ...but then again there was no prize for technological superiority.
