This is disappointing. I was looking forward to this event. Any chance another might step up and save it? Or are we declaring it dead?

I am planning a new competition, It will come soon.

No real point to that, since we couldn't even get 3 people into this one. :(

One of the problems might be that the target audience for this - people with an interest in ADRIFT who haven't got the full version - is pretty small. I'd guess the majority of people interested in writing a game with ADRIFT have bought the full version by the stage they come to of finishing a game with it. And with a new version looming (well, it's been looming for a long time, but anyway...) V4 is probably seen as pretty much dead in the water.

Or maybe there are simply so many competitions being run, it's hard to find time for them all.

It will be the kind of competition where registered and unregistered members are in the same line. It will come in a week.

I entered unregistered comp back in 2009 and told myself "if you don't win it, you can just buy it yourself."

I'm so excited about v5 but I can barely figure it out. I am dying for documentation!
