Henry Hoffman & Andre DaSilva members of Team Krunch Bunch from Newport, have won the ‘Ooh Shiny Shiny’ Special Prize for dazzling the judges at Microsoft’s X48 Game Camp, with their game Giant Ego.
Giant Ego is a game for mobile devices, where you play as a personification of the human ego, with faceless peers rushing into view to either insult or compliment you. The compliments and insults fly on to screen from the sides, ensuring a hectic rush to keep your ego balanced as you try to progress by negotiating the ever changing environment.
