At long last, we are proud to announce the results of Cemetech Contest #8, centering around the theme of Arcade games. Unfortunately, the judges' schedules prevented the results from being released until now, although hopefully the authors and other Cemetechians alike will appreciate the care put into grading. For the first time, a Cemetech contest included three categories: TI-8X games, Casio Prizm games, and Computer games. There were about sixteen to eighteen prospective entries, of which thirteen entries were submitted for grading.
Congratulations are well-deserved by every competitor. The set of programs entered for Cemetech Contest 8 may well have been the most diverse and impressive set of programs entered in a Cemetech programming contest to date, and it saddens myself and my fellow judge, Rivereye, that we couldn't give everyone awards. At this point, I strongly encourage all the authors to upload their entries to the Cemetech archives so that I may update this article with download links.
Be sure to look for the next Cemetech contest somewhere around the summer months, which we hope to have some more substantial prizes beyond the invaluable respect of your peers!
Read onwards for the list of competitors and the winners and runners-up in each category!
