Avenue Fighter!

Brian Kiel, Tony Shumskas, Jacob Surber, Ben Mendelsohn, John Egan, and Alex Bustin put together a highly entertaining automatic game over the weekend, and took our top prize at FlashCamp:

Avenue Fighter 2008: Battle for the White House is a political fighting game that is controlled by the current tweets (messages) appearing on Twtter.com.

Once running, the game scans Twitter for new tweets containing either McCain or Obama, and weighs the phrase as positive or negative.

The weighted phrases are then used to determine each candidate’s attacks. Every fight is different. Play it all day and root for your candidate!”

If Andrew Nguyen hadn’t won Best Video, he would have won the Helps Developers prize. Not only did he produce this app entirely on his own, over the weekend, but he answered almost every summons for engineering help from the audience. Thanks, Andrew!
