Hey guys, long time CAG'er here I wanted to let you know about a competition we're throwing over atwww.2BeeGames.com
Referral link is there to track CAG signups which are automatically entered for the giveaway! It takes a minute and it's free
I've been so busy with E3 and the contest that I forgot to do something special for my fellow Cag'ers! Posted Image
There are about 100 free games to play on the site and we're looking to bring the best ones to console.

We're now in the FINAL WEEK OF VOTING and need help deciding which games to publish! Your voice counts!
Play the games and vote by clicking the "vote" button on the righthand sidebar.
You can vote only once per week so make it count!

Fill out your profile, give some feedback on games and thats it!
10 random CAG'ers can win their choice of $10 in Indie Game Credit on Steam/D2D or a copy of Raiden Fighter Aces for 360 (I'll contact you for address/game preference).
Winners will be announced first week of July after the competition ends.
Help me spread the word!

6 Games have been eliminated, only 4 Finalists are left!
The FINAL ROUND ends June 30th!

THE FINAL FOUR:

Posted Image
Auditorium. AudioVisual brilliance.

Posted Image
Heresy War: Light on the heresy, heavy on the war (in space, no less).

Posted Image
Save the Planet: All the pretty colors!

Posted Image
Storm: Simple and great, rain or shine.


Eliminated Games - These are the other finalists that were knocked out in the first 3 Rounds
Posted Image
Bumps: The polish and presentation in Bumps is flawless. The gameplay and catchy music kept us playing for hours on end.

Posted Image
Xtreme Buccaneer Broadside Battle on the High Seas 2008 is obviously here because the title is so full of win. The art style is awesome and its loaded with humor. Map the keys to a controller and it plays so much better.

Posted Image
Aces Wild is a sweet 2D sidescrolling beat 'em up. It's still very early in the development process, but we loved its potential and we really want to see where it can go. It plays really well on a gamepad.
Posted Image
The other 2Bee was ranting about how The Pretender Part One was an otherworldy Victorian elemental puzzle platforming romp. The other judges just backed away and let him be...
Posted Image
(Don't) Save the Princess! had us laughing the whole time as we sent the hero to his doom. An innovative little puzzler. Seeing the bones and blood victory screen never seems to get old.
Posted Image
Seeing those Totems fall and crack is hilarious and strangely addicting. The physics in this game are top notch as you try to land those totems safely.


So check out the awesome games and if you sign up through the special link here for CAG'ers, you have a chance to win some games and possibly a DSi as well!

Good thing I saw this, it reminded me to get a vote in for this. A teammate of mine in my game design class my final quarter made one of these, so my vote was a bit biased. And yes, this is where I boast that I totally know the creator of one of the games.

Awesome layout, also I liked the content. It's good to see sites promoting these games as often they are overlooked.

I've also voted, I have a feeling that Save The Planet will win :)

Thanks for the feedback guys!

Trying to retool and add more community features after the first contest is done.
Better profiles, better tools for developers etc.

Any suggestions or requests? :]

I'm curious; if you're publishing these to Indie Games on XBL, why not push all of them? Isn't Microsoft making it fairly easy/economical to do this, at least for the Indie Games channel? Or are you thinking that most will eventually be published, just not all at once?

Thanks for the support guys!

_heretic_, the games are all very different at the moment.
Some are flash, some are small demos really early in production, and some are huge downloads.
Almost all will have to be re-coded for XBL and we simply can't do that at the moment.

this site is pretty sweet for independent developers, so congrats on a nice and simple layout

oh and my vote is for Auditorium, if that was on XBL or PSN, i'd buy it for $5, its pretty addicting and has nice music...the others were a bit too much like Flash games i've played on various websites...Storm was a good idea though

Wow, I knew indie games are coming along but damn, way ahead of my expectations.

Voted for Auditorium. I wanted to vote for Heresy War due to my incline for space battle games. But when I saw my GF just totally having fun playing Auditorium, I knew that was a winner for all casual gamers as for I try to reel her into gaming more often. Gameplay is simple but quite addicting and the music soundtrack is great, its the type of music you can blast and not have your neighbor complain about it. ^_^

For me it was a decision between these 2 also, but I Voted for Heresy war ... which also has some nice music btw.

The scope is quite ambitious, and its got a real nice look and feel.

The final day of voting is today!

Unfortunately I don't see the other 3 finalists as commercial titles... As freeware they're awesome though.

I voted for Heresy War.

Awesome initiative. I've heard of similar projects before but they weren't as big as this and lacked quality.

Sorry to hear about not enough CAGs signing up :(

BTW .. on your forum, I made the suggestion of having forum signature banners and / or avatars, any news on that front? .. would like to help spread the word on your site and the awesome game developers who may need the help to get their games out.
