Rootrivia Winners. You a winner Haha, you a winner haha.

Well the dust is settled and time for that moment all of you have been waiting for. But I wanted to say this contest was great. Alot of people came in and gave it their all, and some not so much. It was great to read some of your answers. I will tell you right now “Mark Wahlberg and the Funky Bunch” is not the lead composer for Project Pheonix. It was a great turn out and great challenge.

This contest was the tip of the iceberg and for the future we will be getting bigger and better games and prizes.So stay tuned on that front.

Congratulations to the winners Miro, Rudi and Ben for coming out on top in the challenge out of so many contestants. Also I want to thank everyone else who still came out to try and win some free games. Even Pedro Mateus from Linux GameCast Weekly came out to do some trivia. Which I will add you can catch the Live Show every Saturday @ 6pm PDT / 9pm EDT.So check them out every saturday, I even try and come out as I am a huge fan of the show. Also on that note about my questions about Linux Gamecast Weekly. Thanks to Pedro for letting me know that my question about Venns Mic was wrong, I meant to say “Brand Name” for the name of his microphone.But a good 80% of you still got it right regardless of my mess up on the question. But I digress, I said before we are going to do more challenges and they will vary from trivia to in game challenges. See you in the next RootChallenge, Game on my friends.

    What were the correct answers of the questions? Could someone make a post of that. I would very much like to see if I answered them correctly.

    I think the game Cwang hates was some different – he mentioned it once before somewhere (can’t find it right now again :/ )

    Thanks for the prizes, I am still waiting for a linux release for Nuclear Dawn, since steam states it is for windows only..
