2013 UDG CHALLENGE VOTING
« on: February 25, 2013 »
UDG Challenge Voting Open!!!

This has been the first challenge that I’ve participated in for over a year.. I had a long time to think of a theme for the challenge and in hindsight I think that I picked quite a difficult one.   :o

It succeeded in putting off all but eight entrants, but the result is a very worthwhile and interesting batch of demos in a variety of styles, ranging from raymarching to 2D techniques, all have their own charms and they are all really entertaining.
  :)

I’ve certainly enjoyed watching them and appreciate the time and effort that you’ve put into them.

The thing that is really encouraging is that we had three new participants who were not put off by the tricky theme which is surely a good omen for future challenges..

I already have a few ideas for the next one, but before we do that we need to decide the winner of this one, you’ll have three votes to choose the three productions which you think should be on the podium this time so without further ado, please read the voting rules and vote for your favourites![/b]

Please pick your three favourites, please make sure you have watched them all before you vote, the entrants deserve it!

A small word about the sponsorship.  The cash prizes are made possible by the generosity of the people who donated to the treasury.  Even though it is very generous to abdicate from taking your cash prize if you win, please do take it.

To keep things fair, here are the rules for voting and votes are checked by administrators.



Voting rules:

  • Please vote for 3 entries, you MUST vote for 3, not 2 or 1.
  • If you do not vote for 3 entries your vote will be removed.
  • Please do not vote for yourself or you will be disqualified.
  • Voting is open for 6 days from now.
  • In the event of a tie break, there will be a vote-off.
  • Please view all the entries before voting.

Good luck everyone!

An abstract entry featuring Penguins, Chevrons and Basketballs.  Several patterns are shown throughout the demo and the Penguin cannot apparently ever obtain the Basketball.

Entry Name: Unusual Dither Graphics
Author : Combatking0

  Topic

Description :

A large light sourced cube, A 3D Starfield and a chunky scroller all rendered out of 16 green blocks give this one a pleasing retro look.. Sort of like something you’d see on a vintage system with a more up-to-date effect, if you watch until the end you're treated to another effect too.

Entry Name: Printblobs
Author : Nuclear

  Topic

Description :

Nuclear’s competition debut treats us to a really smoothly rendered 3D scene of metablobs using the marching cubes algorithm, the nice choice of colours and UDG blocks enhances the effect.

Entry Name: Purple fUDGe
Author : STUAA

  Topic

Description :

Another debut entry, and an excellent one too with an original piece of music, smooth sine scroller and a waving plasma-like background which looks semi-transparrent due to the clever use of transparrency in the tilesets.

Entry Name: Hammer Time 3D
Author : Padman

  Topic

Description :

Who would have thought that you could fit MC Hammer and his parachute pants into just 16 little blocks?  In his own inimitable style Padman has done just that and thrown in a few other pleasing effects for good measure.

Entry Name: Retro Rorschach
Author : Kirl

  Topic

Description :

Using a selection of random blocks which are created at start-up, you can draw your own pattern and run it through a variant of the famous life algorithm.  The results are a pleasing selection of organic patterns which look like alien creatures.

You have to take your hat off to Canopy who used this challenge to create his first ever demo, you get an intro screen containing some large text which then progresses to a Green scroller over a silver bar background.

Good luck everyone. Some really nice entries again for this compo. I couldn't come up with any interesting ideas at all and you guys seem to have really nailed lots of different themes and ideas. Great stuff!

Just got back from an evening out with the family, I had to log on and check the results though and what a buzz!!!  I am really happy to have come first this time, I didn't think I would and the same feelings are here this time that are there with every other challenge, whether I'm placed in the top 3 or not - It's a real pleasure and an honour to participate amongst you.

Congratulations to Combatking and Nuclear for 2nd and 3rd places respectively and to everyone who participated in the challenge and voting.
I'll look forward to finalising tomorrow evening (Karma, Prizes, Showcase).

See you in the next one :)

Thanks to everyone who entered - it's fun trying to guess what everyone will be writing and doing something different.

I'm honoured to have been placed so highly.

Everyone who got 3 votes shouldn't dispair - there have been times when I've had 0 votes for an entry, so if you can get 3 votes this time, you're bound to score higher next time.

Well done to everyone who entered, and those who placed in the top three. I really had trouble voting as I really wanted to vote for 4 entries! Some really nice stuff this time.
