Aptos, CA, December 17th, 2008 Software developer eSim Games, LLC and the official fan site of its premier product, Steelbeasts.com, are awarding several prizes for the sceanrio submissions for the second scenario design contest which ended on September 21st. "Once again it has been a magnificent experience for which I'd like to thank all contestants, and the jury for their hard work", said eSim Games' president, Al Delaney. "Like so often before, the Steel Beasts community has proven to be a pool of resourceful and ambitious individuals whose interests and talents go beyond the desire for mere entertainment, but to express themselves in a creative way." "I am happy to see the success of our previous contest continued," said eSim Games Marketing Director, Nils Hinrichsen. "These scenarios are a welcome addition to our coming upgrade 2.4 which will be released in the coming first quarter 2009. And we will continue to hold two scenario design contests every year to inspire the community with themed tasks. With version 2.4 we will see a number of new features. I'm confident that the scenario designers will adopt these new elements with the same spirit of creativity that they expressed in the previous contests." Unfortunately one contestant had to be disqualified for not meeting a submission requirement, observing the time limit of 45 minutes. Still, eSim Games will reward his efforts - as well as of all those who did not win any of the prizes - with a copy of the world's best mousepad. A mousepad and a diecast model of a British WWI "Mk.V" tank model will be awarded to Ulrich "Silberwiese" Goldacker for winning the Steel Beasts Prize for "Best Scoring Formula" and "Most Entertaining Scenario" with his submission "Schneller Gorilla". Ulrich also tied with both 1st and 2nd winner of the main prize in the category "Fun Factor". The 3rd place in the main category "Best Scenario" was awarded to Thomas "Feldpost" Kretschmer with "Quick Reaction Force". Thomas chose the Unimax "Force of Valor" 1:32 scale Bradley IFV. The 2nd place in the main category "Best Scenario" was awarded to Kevin "ChanceBS" LaChance with "White Pawn Takes Dark Knight". Watch out, Batman! Kevin opted for a Dragon diecast model of the 1945 Panther G in 1:35 scale. And the winner of the Grand Prize is John "Gary Owen" Houston with "NAI Cointoss". Per his request, John Will receive a German edition of Guderian's memoirs, a lifetime Steel Beasts Upgrade Plan, an original black beret of the German Panzertruppe, and of course a Steel Beasts mousepad. The team of SteelBeasts.com and eSim Games congratulate all the winners!
