MacSurvivor Castillo - Immunity
is a world leader in Universal Serial Bus and IEEE-1394/FireWire solutions for the
high-caliber games for the Macintosh, and with its team of industry veterans, and
its partnerships with leading content providers, assures a steady stream of critically
acclaimed game titles.
The final four to be broken into two teams to challenge each other in a "Banner
Year" web site for the Cybernauts tribe. The winning team will go head-to-head
in a second challenge to determine who walks away with immunity.
The winner of the Elite Minds challenge was John, so he got to choose his teammate.
He selected Diane.
The teams are John and Diane versus Jim and Mark. Each team will design a Cybernauts
web site that focuses on reflecting over the contest. The only requirements are:
1. Must carry the Cybernauts banner.
2. Must demonstrate a reflective tone over the trials and tribulations on Castillo
3. Must be completed by 1/12/05, midnight Pacific time.
The web sites are to be judged based upon visual appeal, navigation, content, and
overall effect of portraying a retrospective feeling on the game. The judges will
be made up of the host, one ex-maclion, one ex-iofthetiger, and two non-affiliated
Both web site submissions fulfilled the requirements of the challenge.
- John/Diane submitted http://excaliburworld.com/cybernauts1/.
- Judges Comments: Well laid
out web site, easy navigation, excellent graphics and music to strike the mood of
Castillo Island. Nice special effects on viewing fallen castaways. The content was
excellent. Wonderful retrospect. On many pages, paragraphs should have been separated
by a blank line, and headings should have stood out (make them bold and/or larger
font). While the music added a lot, some judges were concerned with not having control
over the music, and one with a slower connection experienced lag in load time.
- Jim/Mark submitted http://excaliburworld.com/cybernauts2/.
- Judges Comments: The web site
had very good content, a nice walk down the hallway of fallen castaways. It was simple
with fast loading, but did not have a lot of style, nor did it contain a lot of mood
All 5 judges chose the web site
submitted by the team of Diane and John as their favorite in all categories, a unanimous
vote. Kudos to both teams for good reflective content.
The team of Diane and John won immunity, but only one of them could walk away wearing
the necklace. The Donald flew in, and there was a private board room meeting with
Diane, John and the Jury. The Donald put an offer on the table. If Diane and John
were to agree on who gets the necklace, the other person would receive a prize, and
there would be no further competition in this challenge.
The deal was made. John and Diane agreed to give John the immunity necklace. Diane
received MacSoft Age of Mythology, an Apple mouse pad and Apple pad of paper.
John wins immunity!
