Not a bad idea... The missed deadline competition... First prize will be a one hour extension to any time limited competition being held within the next year... :P

One thing I leaned is that my mac runs VirtualBox and Windows XP really well! And Adrift 5 runs damn smoothly on it.

Bored on Hallowe'en? For shame!

We have at least 8 entries. If there is sufficient demand, I'll offer an extension so people can still submit.

I am fine playing and extending. Maybe rather than humble bundle people would like a pre-order of Trine 2? It is a Steam game though...

Bored on Halloween is easy. All the good stuff was probably Saturday.

Eight entries is great, that's a better turnout than I was expecting. :D I don't think an extension is necessary, we've got plenty for a good comp, and speaking for myself, the game I'm most interested in finishing right now is well over the 3 hour mark and ineligible anyway.

Besides, starting tomorrow it officially becomes the Christmas season for most stores in my area, I really won't be in the Halloween mood then. :roll:

Okay, so I'm trying to upload the Ectocomp .zip file and I keep getting this message that says, "You may only edit your own adventures!" What's up?

Also, since we did get at least one person (@intfiction.org) who is in favour of the extension, what I plan to do is release the games in a bundle now (or whenever I can, ASAP) and just edit them with an announcement about the later entry when I get it. Anyone else who wants to take advantage of the extension is welcome.
