FDG Entertainment's "Beyond Ynth HD" Takes Top Prize

MHL, LLC, the entity responsible for administering the MHL Consortium and the adoption, licensing and promotion of the MHL™ (Mobile High-Definition Link) specification, has announced the winners of the 2012 "Go Big or Go Home!" Game Developers Contest. On March 8, the top 10 submissions were demonstrated in front of a live judging panel at the Game Developers Conference® (GDC) in San Francisco, with "Beyond Ynth HD" taking first place.

Leveraging MHL technology -- an HD audio and video wired connectivity standard that enables a mobile device to deliver 1080p uncompressed video with up to eight channels of digital audio with zero latency -- mobile game developers can create exciting games that can be enjoyed not only on smartphones and tablets, but also the big screen. MHL-enabled DTVs and displays also provide power back to the mobile device when connected, so gamers can play their favorite apps on a DTV without draining their mobile device battery.

About the Winner

Winning the grand prize, the "2013 GDC Experience," Beyond Ynth HD is described as being an Android game full of smooth, high-resolution graphics and addictive, physics-based puzzle play. Gamers help Kribl, a bug on a big journey to bring light back to the Kingdom of Kriblonia, navigate uncharted territories to find the light-giving 'Dazzly Diamonds' that were stolen by the Four Dark Spiders of the Apocalypse. "Babel Rising 3D," by Advanced Mobile Applications was named runner-up with "Fieldrunners HD" by Subatomic Studios taking third place.


Nominated companies were judged and reviewed on the following criteria:

  • Graphics: How well the graphics could scale from the small screen to the big screen.
  • Sound: How immersive the sound was and the quality of soundtracks.
  • Innovation: How creative and innovative the game was in highlighting and utilizing MHL technology.
  • Differentiation: How the game highlighted MHL technology compared to other games in the Android marketplace.
  • Fun: How well users could play the game while looking at the big screen high-definition DTV. Did they need to watch the phone?

Judging Panel

Games were reviewed by a seasoned panel of judges, including:

  • Bruce Jones, developer evangelist, HTCdev
  • Chris Tanquary, product manager, gaming and music, Samsung Telecommunications America
  • Dave Okamoto, senior marketing manager, AT&T Developer Program
  • Judy Chen, senior director of marketing and business development, MHL Consortium
