[prMac.com] Brooklyn, NY - Software developers are typically known for making something beautiful out of math and variables. Antair Games and 148Apps challenged developers to move out of their comfort zone, and into the world of sugar and flour. We invite you to see the results, and judge their successes and failures yourself.
The Great Indie Bake Off is a cooking challenge that was put out to the titans of the independent iPhone App scene, to make the best cake they could based on their products. Developers from around the world responded to the call, took off their XXXXL t-shirts, and put on their somehow even larger aprons. Fire alarms were set off, calories were gained, and only the moistest survived to show up in the competition. The voting for the contest is being hosted by popular iPhone App review site 148apps.com, and we're inviting everyone to help us choose the best cake.
Best of all, one lucky voter will be randomly selected to receive a package of great prizes, including free copies of many of the apps involved, iTunes gift cards, and iPhone accessories.
Featuring the surprisingly good cakes of developers from around the world, the Great Indie Bake Off is a refreshing reminder that developers are people too, with a sweet tooth, and that many have no idea how to apply frosting. With entries from popular chart topping games like Flick Bowling, Up There, and Chopper alongside underground sleeper hits like BurnBall, Sneezies, and ScribBall, there's something here for everyone.
Check it out now and see your favorite iPhone apps in sugar form! Voting closes 25th January 2009.
