The Public Vote Winner

The public favorite vote initially intended to be a social campaign! We launched a public Twitter vote for the prize of 50,000 SAND to be distributed to the top winner.. and well it didn’t go the way we expected.

Very quickly we realized Twitter was not the best route to take for a voting contest of this sorts… and it quickly turned unfair for all game jam participants. We fully understand the situation at hand and will be taking appropriate measures for future game jams to ensure this does not happen again. We aim to keep these contests fair and an equal opportunity for all creators involved. This was a learning lesson for our team and we will continue to improve this process everywhere that we possibly can!

With that being said.. we decided to allocate even more $SAND to all 11 participants in the public favorite vote. Prizing breaking down as follows:

The Two Most Liked on Twitter
