Drum Roll . . . AirConsole Winners are in, Including First Place Winner of $10,000 USD
If you don’t know what AirConsole is, it is a platform that turns your TV into your gaming console, and your phone into the controller. The specs required are extremely low, and there is a huge variety of games. The games range from action/adventure, to trivia games, including Cards Against Humanity. You can easily get a group of friends playing and have hours of fun. Best of all, it is 100% free! You can pay to be a Hero, which has its own benefits, but that is a discussion for another time.
So what is this contest about? AirConsole announced last year a huge contest with the top prize being $10,000 USD and anyone could join. Developers from all over got together to take advantage of this amazing opportunity and jointly created a total of 62 submissions. In the end, there could only be one winner!
8Bit Fiesta took home first place. A game designed for 2-4 players with a retro look and feel. This was actually released on Steam last year, and ported to AirConsole.
Tied Together took home second place (and $2,500). This game I am a fan of. It just looks and feels great. You need to play as a team to win, your fates are literally tied together.
Press To Play took home third and $1,000. This is a collection of several games and is said to be a polished experience. I have not tried it myself as it is not available in the store yet, but I cannot wait to try all these new games.
At the end of the contest, there were 47 total games (see them here: https://www.airconsole.com/play). This is a successful contest, there were more submissions than actual games on the market!
