Retro Remakes – Category 2 winner is…

Well here it is – the 2nd of SIX category winners.
And this result – will be very different to every other result this year…


(Keep reading… you’ll see…)

Category 2 is “Games that weren’t”.

Entrants were challenged to write a game that was promised, or hinted at in the 80’s, but never came about. Maybe it was mentioned in a magazine, but never released?

There was an amazing number of entries to this category.
I was quite amazed, when I heard there was… one.

And therefore… the winner is…

Sigue Sigue Sputnik - Lobo

Sigue Sigue Sputnik - Lobo

Thoughts from the judges?

  • Ian said “The game plays like a bastardised Game & Watch crossed with Top Of The Pops on a bad LSD trip.
  • Geekay said “That shit drummer Phil Collins never saw it coming – he’ll not be donning a monkey suit and craving bars of chocolate anymore!
  • Kudos added “Kudos for originality, but a bit too obscure for my liking.
  • But Spray noted “I doubt Lobo gives a flying monkey what I thought about it – it’s still the category winner!

Lobo wins a big swag of goodies, including an XGS Micro Edition,
and a tonne of fantastic gamemaking software.
