X48 Wrap Up


It’s all over - early Saturday evening 80 exhausted students left Derby University for home after spending 36 hours producing some awesome games using XNA.

The top three prizes went to:

First Prize - Huddersfield Green's Seavolution
Second Prize - Huddersfield Orange's Involved
Third Prize - Team Newport's Bellis Perennis

and there were a bunch of other quirky prizes such as cheesiest game which went to Hull’s Evo.

To all those who took part – congratulations. Not only was I amazed by the quality of the games produced but also your unquenchable thirst for Red Bull!

For those that weren’t there you missed a treat, keep an eye on the official X48 site as all of the games will be posted there shortly.
