MaxisCimino wrote: After reading the storyboards it became clear to me that the player had created a rather interesting fable-like story that had very distinct characters with clear motivations. I had a lot of fun working with those characters and designing the environments to match their individual personalities. I especially enjoyed creating the temple for the Guru of Wealth …which, of course, had to be made of solid, sparkling gold.

MaxisIan wrote: The storytelling style kind of reminded me of an old myth or fable, complete with gurus and the meaning of life! It parallels something you might see in the stereotypical interpretation of eastern philosophies, where the hero travels great distances to find a wise man sitting under the tree of knowledge/power/something else symbolic.

2nd place: KrakenMK for “Evynwire Scroll Quest”

Thanks to everyone who submitted, it was a tough choice!
