Julie Shin Choi, who manages the Game On 2010 competition for Mozilla Labs, announced that a grand total of 160 games have been submitted to Mozilla by eager developers who wanted to take part in the Game On 2010 competition. Out of all these games only 124 were selected and showcased on the Game On Gallery. And out of those 124, only 35 were selected by the jury to be Game On Finalists.

Out of the 35 games only 1 will receive the Community Choice Award. The award will be handed out to the game that racks up the highest number of votes. And so we get to the friendly reminder bit I mentioned in the title – today, the 1st of February, is the last day you can vote for your favorite game.

“Today is the last day to VOTE for the Game On Community Choice Award. Take a few minutes to rate the sheer awesomeness of these games. We will be announcing the winner of the Community Choice award on Thursday, February 3, along with all the other prize winners. We will also be randomly selecting three lucky voters and send you a special-edition Mozilla Labs Game On swag pack!” announced Julie Choi.

The winners of the Game On 2010 competition were supposed to be announced yesterday, the 31st of January. Julie Choi said that “due to the awesome response from our wider community, we have extended the voting period for the Community Choice award until February 1.” Since the voting period was extended, the date when Mozilla would announce the winner of the Game On competition had to be pushed to the 3rd of February.

The Game On 2010 competition was launched as a means to kick off the Mozilla Labs Gaming Initiative. It is an international competition open to developers from all over the world who want to create complex and not so complex games with Open Web technologies and thus have a chance at winning one of the great prizes Mozilla will give out. For the developers who submitted their games to the Game On 2010 competition, the exciting bit is getting their games out there and potentially winning some cool prizes.

And speaking of prizes, here is what Mozilla will award the best overall game:
The aforementioned community choice winner, and the best technology, best web-iness, best aesthetics, most original, best polish, and most fun games will win the following prizes:
