Last Wednesday (11/29), Boyd and I had the privilege of representing the XNA Game Studio Express team at the Digital Entertainment Media and Marketing Excellence (DEMMX) awards. XNA Game Studio Express was nominated in two categories:
Game Innovation of the Year
ESPN Integration in NBA LIVE 07 (Electronic Arts)Microsoft XNA Game Studio Express (Microsoft Corporation)Zuma (PopCap Games, Inc.)
Best of Show: Innovator of the YearBob Dylan (XM Satellite Radio)In Game Ads (Real Networks)Microsoft XNA Game Studio Express (Microsoft Corporation)
We won in both our categories and we now have two shiny trophies to show for it (although no one on the team ever thought that we would be in a competition, competing with Bob Dylan!).
We are putting the finishing touches on XNA Game Studio Express and you should have it in your hands soon!
PS It looks like we have also been nominated in the GameDeveloper Front Line awards in the programming category. Wish us luck!
Kudos guys! I'm looking forward to more great stuff in XNA/GSE.
Please keep on working on XNA as you have done until now, it is VERY important for the small indie teams!
these are only the first two of a glorious series of important awards! :)
awsome guys xna looks like a hit
