On Xmas day I started a Book contest where you could win 5 copies of the print version of my Cocos2D book. Now here are the winners!

Three Winners for outstanding contributions

These are the winners that I picked because of what they said in their comments respectively other contributions they made:

Marcotronic for his stunning adaptation of the Beatles’ song “Let it be”. He wrote new lyrics, then re-recorded the song with his own voice. It made me laugh and gave me goosebumps at the same time. I promote this to be the official Learn Cocos2D book hymn! 😀

Let it be: Learn Cocos2D

Dad of Geek And Dad for his heartwarming story about his neighbor being laid off. Things like that shouldn’t happen so undeservedly and I hope his neighbor finds renewed spirit when he receives the book as a gift.

The G man for being so passionate about Cocos2D besides his situation. He only has a dialup connection and the country he lives in doesn’t even allow him to register a domain or join the iOS Development program. I just hope there aren’t any import regulations for programming books.
G also posted this funny reimagination of the Cocos2D logo:

Those are the outstanding commentors that I simply could not resist gifting a book to because of their comments. Congratulations!

Three Lottery Winners

I still had two more winners to pick but couldn’t decide, so I chose to do a lottery to give everyone else a fair chance. I also decided I can spare one additional copy, so there are now 3 lottery winners chosen randomly from the remaining 22 unique commentors with the help of Excel’s RANDBETWEEN() function.

Without further ado, the three lottery winners are:


Congratulations to all winners! I will contact you by email shortly.

I also wish everyone a Happy New Year 2011! May your code compile and your games sell.
