There’s a Big Fish on Mount Rainier

If it weren’t overcast today, you might have seen a Big Fish on top of Mount Rainier.

That would be Alexey Tugaenko, a developer of games for Seattle’s Big Fish Games.

Tugaenko won a contest that Big Fish held for the best third-party game released on the site between July 2009 and March 2010. His Top Evidence Studios in Kiev, Ukraine, won for producing the hit “Haunted Manor: Lord of Mirrors.”

The prize was a climb to the top of Rainier with famed climber Ed Viesturs, a Bainbridge Island resident who is also the keynote speaker at next week’s Casual Connect game conference in Seattle.

They reached the summit this morning at 7 a.m., after starting out on their climb Thursday morning.

Here are Viesturs, Tugaenko and RMI guide Mike Uchal in a photo courtesy of Viesturs:
