It’s that time of the year guys! Nominations for the Mochis at Flash Gaming Summit. We got SO close last year and Space is Key made the final three for best action game of 2011. I can’t even say how much this would mean to me. Let’s do this for 2012 guys, we can do it!
Head over to http://www.flashgamingsummit.com/awards.html
You can vote for BOTH Space is Key 2 and Platcore – here are links to the games too:
Since Space is Key 2 also hitting iOS/Android and Blackberry this year (http://www.spaceiskey.com) we qualify for ‘Best Cross-Platform‘ and let’s hit ‘Best Action‘ the same as last year! Come on guys, I know it takes a few minutes to vote but you can do it, means so much, we can do this one! You guys rock!!!

They Took Her netted first place in the Mochimedia 60 second contest! Wahooooo!
It’s great to see how much creativity a contest can spark and I’ve got to say there were some great games in there too, so great job to everyone!
Sadly won’t be doing July (One button game – I mean, Space is Key is already born, we don’t need anymore one button games from me), but I’ll probably do August no doubt! Can’t beat a little game jam.
As for how the game is doing. The game got sponsored by Armorgames which is brilliant! And we actually launched the competition build last weekend, however the reception we got from players wasn’t too receptive. I mean, everyone hates being rushed along and it is a small game. So we took the feedback onboard (A lot of sifting through comments) and we’re going to re-release the game most likely with a different name too. A more viral build that players will be able to sit and enjoy without being rushed too much! So looking forward to that

You heard it! Space is Key hit the final 3 for best action game of 2011! Completely overwhelmed and excited describes me right now!
Space is Key is up against Burrito Bison by Juicy Beast Studio (Which by the way, I absolutely loved) and Mega Mash by Nitrome (Yet again, brilliant fun from Nitrome!). So there’s some stiff competition, and the winner definitely deserves it with some great content there!
I’d like to thank all you guys for the support of the game and nominating me too! THANKS!
One more hurdle to go, and you never know. Let’s do this!

The 2nd Games that Challenge the World Contest!
I thought I’d throw the spotlight on a competition that’s worth noting for all you out there who are interested in the multiplayer side of flash!
Come2Play and the Flash Game Developers Group are launching the 2nd Games that Challenge the World Contest for multiplayer games. Cash prizes totaling $10,000 will be awarded to contest winners! Surely that’s got your eye?
1st Place – $5,000
2nd Place – $3,000
3rd Place – $1,250
4th Place – $750
Contest Genre & Judging:
The contest genre is “Casual Games.” Games will be judged on the following criteria:
- Multiplayer playability for new and return players
- Replay ability of the game
- Design, sound and effects
- Concept and execution
Sounds good enough right? Well the deadline is February 28th, 2011 at 23:59 est so final versions of the game must be submitted by then!
Additional points to note:
- Games entered into the competition do not have to be exclusive. Pre-released games are welcomed.
- You can retrofit an old game that has already been published and released.
- If there are any issues with your games original sponsors, contact us to see if we can work something out.
That’s right, you can even submit a pre released games! That’s even more of a win-win situation. What can you possibly lose?
In a whole, if your looking at making a multiplayer game whisk one up and enter it! If you’ve already got one released, get it submitted.
