The winners of the Swedish Game Awards 2008 have been announced this week. One of the four winners was the NetBeans-built Swarm, a racing mobile game where you navigate a swarm of pixels through a maze.
Participants could compete in the categories Game of the Year, Best Innovation, and Best Execution, which were awarded to Windows and Xbox games.
In cooperation with Sun Microsystems, the Swedish Game Awards 2008 have run an extra category, called Mobile Games With NetBeans IDE 6 & Java ME. Swarm, the winner in this category, was awarded 10,000 SEK.
