Really excited to get into the games in this comp. Just downloaded 'em. I see that Perspectives has the most unique dispersal of its comp numbers, so my initial bias tells me I want to play it first, but I imagine I'll certainly have reviews ready for both of them by the 30th.

Here's to all involved. Break a leg.

So, is everyone waiting till after the voting to post comments on the games, or is it just that no one has actually played them? :crys:

Also, why is it that you only notice glaring flaws in your own game after you release it?

Expect reviews from me, uh, within the week! I wanted to wait 'til I had time to properly review them instead of just throwing something together. So, I was thinking Monday, but ended up only getting halfway through them on Tuesday after work. So looks more like Wednesday.

I hate that! Aah! Er... maybe we should be less good at procrastinating. 'Cause for the ones I've entered, I bet if I'd let my games sit for a week and then come back to them, I'd have been able to see the problems and fix 'em.

Edit: time.

Heh... I tried playing Meat Monsters the other night and noticed that the intro and winning images don't seem to show up. Unless I opened the wrong version of the file?

Well, that can be fixed in a second release.

Mine would be pretty easy to fix too, I just somehow completely failed to consider the fact that someone might start towards the mountains without snooping around the village and picking up a certain item first.

It's not gamebreaking or anything, it just a couple of descriptions that make me look really dumb. :(

Six votes so far. It seems likely we'll get to January 10th before we get 10 votes.
I'll see if I can play the games & vote, but it won't happen right away - Uni starts Monday.
Game in the works - Project Clocks - on hold for a bit.
Game finished - I am the Law for the OddComp. Looking forward to finishing Clocks so I can show what I can really do!
Current focus - Some microIF. Short experiments to test ideas and actually release something!

Hey Abbi, I don't know if you used my review submittals to calculate my vote or not, but you probably should since I wasn't able to vote in this poll. I clicked on the results button just to see what they were before I had even played the games, so it gave me a null vote. I haven't officially voted in this poll.
The mind boggles...

Ah, good point. I'll keep that in mind for the final results.

So that means we only need one more vote, but more than that are welcome too! :)

There were a couple other reviews written. Have those people also voted already? Are we still waiting for one more vote to close this thing?

Well, theoretically we're waiting for one... And depending on who that person decided to vote for, we could have a tie... But if the entrants prefer, we could close this now, seeing as it's been about a month past when it was supposed to close.
