Kerwhoozawooten? I've been too busy this summer to even start work on a contest game! I guess it's never too late to start, as I'll be heading up to my cottage on tuesday to finish painting. :)

I probably could whip up a online mini adventure, though I tend to flip rapidly from one project to another, and I want to focus all attention on LostWinds.

Also, we should have a contest for all game makers. Well, sense this is the Game Maker's Garage, and this is a game making contest. It would be kind of fun to have people stretch their minds' to different possibilities and learn a new language. It would probably help people advance and get useful knowledge that will help them in the future.

Mine's done except for a few music tracks. I can't wait to have another decent game on the Roguesoft website. I'm slowly weeding out the older/smaller/crappy ones, hehe...

This is exactly what happened last time. Loads of people said they'd make a game for the contest, but hardly anyone actually did. :-/ What's up guys?

I'll probably release a full beta of mine a few days before the submission-end date. I'm just making a few last minute changes.

I guess when it comes to games, I'm totally unmotivated. But engines on the other hand...   ...yeah, I never get unmotivated when I can make some cool engine never before made that lots of people will use and modify. (Ex: MMO engine, Space ship maker, drawing program with mirroring and other cool features, v6 converted to Sc, gravity app for Sc)

Same, but I can't make any engines in flash because someone has already made them all.

How about a 2nd person style game. I don't think anyone has ever made a game where you see what going on through the eyes of the enemy.
I must be dreaming (wake up me wake up) How could this have happened. Tireas' cry when he found his computer fallen over in his chair with it's screen shattered.

As of today, I've only received 2 entries:
  • Eqwanox's SC Invaders
  • Gnome Again's Gnome Defender

So at the moment, you two are guaranteed a prize.  :D
