Zombies Indie House has snapped up an honourable mention award at the Tizen App Challenge for its game, 'Meanwhile, In A Parallel Universe', and a handsome $40,000 cheque to go with it.
Over $4 million in cash prizes were up for grabs in the Tizen App Challenge across nine game and non-game categories. The winners were announced at the ongoing Mobile World Congress in Spain.
The Indian indie studio was one of three honourable mentions in the 'role-playing and strategy games' category. The grand prize went to Kidalang for 'Sage Fusion 2', with 'Buns Invasion - Heroes of Epic Saga! HD' and 'Tiny Miner' winning runner-up awards.
Aside from 'Meanwhile, In A Parallel Universe', honourable mention awards also went out to 'Bug Bites & Defense' and 'RPG Symphony of the Origin'.
Meanwhile, in a Parallel Universe
'Meanwhile, In A Parallel Universe' was originally created for the YoYo Games Microsoft Win Big competition, where it won second place. The strategy game features a distinctive 2D art style and puts the player in control of a zombie horde attempting to fend off a human invasion.
The game is currently available on the Windows 8 Store, with iOS and Android releases also planned.
