Ubisoft Blue Byte's Teut Weidemann, who has worked on free-to-play games like Settlers Online, won the second annual Evil Game Design Challenge at Casual Connect Europe this week with a light-hearted pitch for Evil Minecraft, a version of Minecraft with premium currency and permadeath.

Weidemann won by popular applause in a friendly competition against Laralyn McWilliams, studio design director of The Workshop, and DeNA's Ben Cousins. The competition was moderated by Big Head Mode's Scott Foe, and while the premise was farcical the pitches -- which were filled with tips, advice and anecdotes from casual game industry veterans -- are worth watching.

For his efforts Weidemann was awarded the Casual Games Association White Cat Award for Excellence in Game Design, presented in the form of an adorable stuffed animal.

The first Evil Game Design Challenge was reporetedly the most-watched talk from Casual Connect USA last year, and the full video of the second -- filmed at Casual Connect Europe in Amsterdam earlier this week -- is available on the CasualConnect Youtube channel alongside other talks from the conference.
