    Yes I'm wondering that too, I keep checking twitter and the web page and no sign of a result so far ;-)

    It did get posted on Twitter about 18 hours ago (According to Twitter). A winner is Neodrop for this tweet. Can't say why a Unity rep didn't mention it here (or if they plan to do so in the future).

    Yep. I know about it only from my friends ;)
    And, if this is a right place, can I ask : what I have won? I own Unity PRO 2+ years. May be I can ask about Android PRO ? (It will help me to test my VIZIO on this platform. Especially if I will have appropriate device (like Nexus One from preorder, if some still available) :rolleyes: ).

    Congratulations on your win. One thing though, if you already own Unity Pro it's kind of not very fair to enter this competition. Not to say your project isn't awesome and deserving, but I think the spirit of the competition is for people who don't have/can't afford Unity Pro to have an opportunity to win it.

    Yes. Each good idea should be supported but :
    I do not see a difference between Unity PRO Unity Android PRO
    Just the same price, just the same name, just the same judges.
    If you think other, let me know.
    And why I can't win it? :confused:
    Believe to me, I am completely not rich (at least yet). ;)

    Any word on the second set of results? And what happens when people start posting tweets after the previous deadline but before the new results, do they get included in the 2nd results or carry over to the next one?

    I would assume that one tweet rolls to all dates unless you win. Kind of grey on that area.

    I imagined that since there are 4 separate result dates, there are 4 separate competitions and you have to post afresh within the dates in order to qualify for that period?

    I haven't seen any official rules on that and no official announcement on what qualifies per week, does one tweet do it or does multiple tweets do it or what? Very gray..

    So when you watch the #unity3d tag, does your own message not show up?
    How long does it take?

    I don't think you can be sure they saw it, there's no way to tell.

    Anyways just wanted to shout out congrats to all the winners so far and those to come :)

    Got my entry out a while ago, too. I think Unity Pro will forever be a wet dream of mine but it can't hurt to try your luck, can it?

    Couldn't fit it all into one tweet, but I needed to make sure you noticed this. It's important to me that you see this: http://www.twitlonger.com/show/7spdf7

    Hope you like my entry :)

    And it is very legit.

    When you press the tweet button on the 2011 page on unity.com, does it automatically add the unity3d# tag?

    thanks!

    Every time I have pushed it it has added #Unity3D and a bit of other text.

    Congrats to thedaemonofid!
    If you are here: I hope your project will turn out as you hope it to be and that it won't be a mere clone of "Dead Space" :)

    Seems like a lot of gray area for a contest.

    i didn't. Gave up after week 2 because I knew I would stand no chance.

    ok, only 3 days late but who cares? -
    In 2011 I will... continue to develop my game Timensions, and try to get it to as high a quality as possible. #unity3d http://t.co/t9fxI

    This is "thedaemonofid" thedaemon for short. Thanks alot for the congrats. Yes my game has nothing to do with space monsters. It's more about the loneliness of space travel and how the mind breaks down. I'll be posting here with updates when I get them. I wasn't expecting to win really, so I was working on other projects. Now that I've won, I'm back to this game idea.

    Seems they really like to thrill us with the delay of the announcement of the last winner.

    Nice to hear back from you thedaemon. That's a interesting subject to pursue, I'm definitely interested to see more.
