Mommy's Best Games, one of four winners of last year's Dream Build Play, has mentioned Duality ZF as one of two solid contenders against its own Grapple Buggy, the game they are entering in this year's Dream Build Play competition. They are hoping to repeat last year's success; Mommy's Best Games placed third in Dream Build Play 2008 with Weapon of Choice, a Contra-style shoot'em up game previously mentioned on our site, earning $10,000 USD. The other solid contender mentioned was Elysian Tail: Dust, by Dean Dodrill. Not bad considering he is an (amazing) artist who has been on 20 year break from coding.
Please check out videos of all three games:
