Favourite Features Competition Results

by Tom | 22nd, July 2012

Just over a month ago we launched our favourite features competition where you had to make YouTube videos showing off your favourite Construct 2 features!

We received over 30 entries which is an amazing result! It was a pleasure to watch such a wide range and variety of videos expressed in so many different ways and we truly recognised the effort so many of you have put into your entries.

Everyone who entered now has a coveted contender badge which comes with 50 rep bonus and a huge pat on the back for a job well done!

Without further ado, the results!

First Place

Rilem with his fantastic video showing off his favourite feature, layers!

Second Place

Jogosgratispro with this well produced and highly engaging video on physics in Construct 2!

Third Place

Velojet created a very informative video on his favourite feature, the Javascript SDK and how to extend Construct 2's capabilities!

And part two...

Honorable Mention

Thijsku wins an honourable mention with his video, we loved the way in which his favourite feature was presented as a story! Very well done, unfortunately you just missed out on the top 3 by just a squeak! You did however managed to win a recorder for your efforts!

Everyone else

We loved all the entries and it's unfortunate we can't give everyone prizes and the recognition they deserve for their hard work! These were difficult decisions to make, but there can only be 3 winners. We hope you're not too disappointed and we hopefully look forward to seeing more awesome videos from all of you in the near future!

Ok, ok, enough already! Who won the flying monkey?

The flying monkey was to be awarded to the entry with "the video with the best title". There were some great titles, and we decided that Apocalageddon: or "kill that damn horde" was the winner!. Congratulations Lyorae, a flying monkey is on it's way!

A big thank you

Again, a huge thank you to everyone that entered, we hope you enjoyed making your videos as much as we enjoyed watching them all!

All winners will be notified by PM shortly on how to claim their prizes. Click here to view all the entries.

Congrats to all the winners !

It was a really nice competition that provided a nice flux of videos and creativity out of our community.

Another competition possible could be for artists, making assets (music/audio/sprites) and the winners could have their creations sold in the shop.

Another "tutorial video competition" could be organized as quite a large number of entries provided such content.

A new "game making" competition could be organised as Scirra's last official competition of that scope was around February.

Throwing ideas :D

Thanks a bunch for my third placing! I'm delighted to have been beaten out of the top two by a couple of fantastic entries - I particularly enjoyed Jogosgratispro's imaginative demo.

And thanks, folks of Scirra, for a really stimulating challenge! Construct 2 is just such a fabulous development environment that it's a real pleasure to have the chance to boost its exposure.

I'd like a big thanks to Scirra for throwing the contest. It caused a large influx of video tutorials for Construct 2, which the Internet sorely needed. My google alerts has never been so active.
