Chronotron was nominated for a Best of Casual Gameplay 2008 award in the category of Browser-based Puzzle game! You can vote once a day, if you like.

I'm working very hide behind the scenes to bring you something awesome. Winning this award would certainly make that something awesome more likely to happen. *wink*.

Chronotron nominated for Best Puzzle Game!

X-Play interviewed all of the PAX 10. Here's their Chronotron interview!

I have no idea why I look so unenthusiastic! Pointing a camera at me makes my face do weird things, I guess.

PAX was incredibly awesome. We gave out over 1800 Chronotron stickers, and had people playing the game just about the whole time.

I was surprised to have a Flash game taken so seriously, but actually a lot of the other developers are using it to protype games, or are interested in using it professionally!

Jonathon Coulton and MC Frontalot both came by the Chronotron booth and they said they'd played and enjoyed the game online!

I got to meet Tom Fulp! We gave each other stickers! I also got to meet some Kongregate employees.

I had dinner with some of the other PAX 10 teams, and with some 5th Cell developers. We talked about making video games! I think I learned a lot!

Microsoft gave each PAX 10 team an XBox 360 Elite! Now I can spend all my money on XBLA content! Alien Hominid and Castle Crashers FTW!

Chronotron is a PAX 10 Winner!

SEATTLE - July 9, 2008 - After sifting through over 80 submissions from a wealth of genres and gameplay hybrids from 'exploratory puzzle' to tactical to rhythm/action, The PAX 10 panel of industry experts selected the ten best submissions in terms of gameplay and "fun factor" for inclusion in The PAX 10. Penny Arcade was pleased to announce today The PAX 10 winners to be displayed at the upcoming Penny Arcade Expo (PAX) at the Washington State Trade and Convention Center in Seattle Aug. 29-31, 2008.

Announced earlier this year in cooperation with the DigiPen Institute of Technology, The PAX 10 is a games showcase open to independent developers worldwide. The winners will be shown in the PAX Exhibit Hall alongside over 70 other exhibitors - including top publishers like Activision, EA and Ubisoft - allowing those publishers, attendees and media to view their home-grown potential. Attendees will have the opportunity to vote on the exhibited games, honoring one of The PAX 10 with the "Audience Choice Award," to be announced on following this year's expo.

"The variety and caliber of the titles blew us away," says Robert Khoo of Penny Arcade. "Narrowing down the group was a challenging process for the judges, but we're incredibly proud to have these ten games as our kickoff showcase and can't wait to see them on the show floor."
