And the winner is...Arcane's Tower Defense (for Windows Phone 7)
Word on Twitter is that the winner of the French Microsoft Windows Phone 7 application contest is a nifty game called Arcane's Tower Defense by GraphicStream, which admittedly has some pretty 'wow' graphics going for it.
The contest was announced back in July and was held this morning (U.S. time) with Steve Ballmer present and serving as a juror.
Congratulations to the team!

Jesus that game seems really large. I love tower games so I guess I'll be buying this one then :D
Probably go broke with all the amazing WP7 applications I will buy :)
Very cool, cant wait to get the final version
They really need to be sure that the controls are taking advantage of the on oboard motion sensors. I can see having to use fingers on the screen all the time for this game getting old pretty quickly. Especially where time sensitive manuevers may come into play.
