Xona Games Won $100K

Amidst so much complaining from me about this town, one can’t even get shipping boxes without having to scream at someone   – I’m proud to let you know that we have some decent and smart people here in our town.  Jason and Matthew Doucette are customers of our store and I’m so happy that they won an award package of $100K in a Microsoft’s 2009 Dream Build Play competition.  These guys worked very hard and we are really proud of them.  Congrats again guys!

Xona Games is an independent game development studio targeting Xbox 360 and PC gaming platforms. The company concentrates on intensifying retro-style games and has already gained international recognition, placing 7th in the world and 2nd in Canada in Microsoft’s 2009 Dream Build Play competition. Xona’s game Decimation X is the number one rated Xbox LIVE Indie Game in Japan


Yarmouth brothers Matthew and Jason Doucette and Xona Games won first place – which comes with an award package worth $100,000 – in Zone 2 of the competition, which took in Yarmouth, Shelburne, Queens and Lunenburg counties. They are also now one of five start-up businesses in the running for the overall provincial award in the competition.икони
