    I did not receive anything , so I guess am out . I got 1350 downloads without marketing and was hoping to get a license

    I would add the fax as the second best joke behind the porting manual. ;)

    Just thought I'd mention that even if you didn't win one of the prizes or honorable mentions, most of us who entered also got a free Microsoft Developer account out of it. So it's not a total loss.

    And that's not to mention the knowledge/experience gained in publishing to the Windows Store. :)

    Scanned docs is acceptable.

    Yep, i can confirm that. Sent two mails to them, and they both said it was acceptable.

    I'll second that. The experience of publishing UWP apps for the Windows 10 ecosystem is priceless.
    I submitted two apps to the competition, and I had a rough time testing in the emulator. What I would really appreciate is if MS would consider handing out low end windows 10 test devices to the participants of this competition because testing on a physical device is the only way one can be sure there are no real bugs in your app, and the UX is working as designed.

    Just a thought.

    Me neither,looks like some great android/os ports won! Standalone builds were probably never considered. Learned a few things along the way,so not a complete waste of time

    What do you mean by standalone? The games should work for both PC and mobile

    I'm pretty sure WildLogicGames meant games that weren't originally Android/iOS ports. For example, ports of "Standalone" (desktop/laptop PC) games, or games made specifically for the Windows Store.

    Sure, just wanted to make sure. Well it's always about the amount of work that each has put in their games. So ports would have more time to be worked on. Our game was pretty early in development so we decided to focus on Windows Store from the get go.

    Yes what Deozaan said. I never ported the game to work on a Windows/Android/OS phone. It's intended for PC and console platform. I thought the competition was for any platform specific game, as long as it worked on the Windows store as the end result. All i'm saying is, it seems like the competition was more aimed at the mobile market, windows phone games and that the ones that have won look great.

    Congrats to the winners! But also, good job to all other participants! I'd say, participating is in itself a win and a step in the right direction, so don't let not-winning affect your morale negatively. We'll do better next time! :)

    (First post, wohoo! Wait, can I mention my entry in my first post in the forums or would that look uncool? Ah, I hope you wouldn't think badly of me. :))

    My entry is a 2d space flight game: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/store/games/doomflight/9nblggh5p79b

    Hey all, just curious -- who won this contest in 2016? Couldn't find the results posted online anywhere.

    Ye that sounds like a scam :/ If I ever get calls where they want me to tell them personal info like that I always tell them I will call them back directly myself and go through it with them. I also check numbers on here https://scam-numbers.co.uk to see if anyone else has had the same thing. Even if it is a legit number it could be spoofed, had that with my internet provider before :/

    Locking as this thread is ancient and no legit posts make sense here.
