And the winners areâ€¦
June 10, 2008
There was much annoyance at the fact what defines Civilization, there was a total of 260 entries into the competition, the deadline was increased after someone at YYG thought it would be a good idea to try and move the whole website over to a new server – near the end of the contest. But it is finally over.
After so long waiting for YoYo Games to reveal the results, they are now here. Be prepared to be shocked…
3rd Place, [$250]: Tut’s Test by KCLC
A really well implemented 3D puzzle game with a lot of charm. Tut’s Test is truly testing and achieving the perfect score can become something of a compulsion. Read More
2nd Place [$500]: Caveman Craig by RhysAndrews
The finest caveman simulator we have ever played. The game combines beautiful graphics with a surprisingly challenging battle for survival. Read More
1st Place, [$1,000]: Ancient Ants Adventure by RedSystem
Another great isometric shooter from RedSystem. You are a race of (Egyptian?) ants, fighting tooth and claw for survival against a compelling range of nasties. Read More
Some games that received a mention include…
Sixty Five Million and One BC
Robbie Swifthand and the Orb of Mysteries

65 million and 1 BC was in production months before the start of Competition 2, it would’ve been unfair if it had been in the top three.
I guess so, seeing as it was started along time before even announcement of the Ancient civilizations composition. (I see your point NAL)
But, still a great game.
I congratulate the winners of the competition.
Personly, I believe from the games that I have played so far (Not all of the ones up there), that Sixty Five Million and One BC maybe should have at lest gotten a in to the top 3.
