Just as impressive as the games in my last post, here are the ten finalists headed to Sydney to compete for the Game Design Phone category of Imagine Cup. You’ll see a great variety of countries, game concepts and pretty much everything else, and all of this on the Windows Phone.

I want to reiterate my last blog’s comments – if you have built your game for Imagine Cup, whether you made it to Sydney or not, PLEASE consider publishing to the marketplace so that others can see how truly great you are.
