The way things are progressing with D-Day, you might get disqualified for failing to finish it within a century of first announcing it. There were adults who were newborn babes when this game was announced. Mars had life. Michael Jackson was black.

:)

Just sayin'.

Hmmm Maybe reviving the (in)famous slapping thread wouldn't be such a bad idea at this point... :?

A bit of "sad" news but a glimpse of hope :|
I will not be able to finish JaF in time to enter the If Comp this year. There's simply too much work to do and on top of that there's the beta testing afterwards.
The good news is that I plan on entering both JaF AND (hold on to your hats :wink: ) D-DAY next year.

Ok, I'm back in the saddle again.
After having beta tested Denk's game for the Annual IF Comp I am continuing the work on JaFT.
As you all probably know it's not easy to go back to a wip after having been away for a while. First you have to get back "in the game" then you try to incorporate all the great ideas for puzzles and locations you have thought of while being away and then you can continue.
Well, part one had been accomplished. I'm "back in the game" and now I'm playing through it trying to fit in all the ideas I've had while I was away.
So far the stats are:

Is that edit time correct? 82 hours for a 57kb game seems a lot.

I rest my case 8)
I have no idea how the developer is measuring the time. Is it from when you open the game in the developer til you close it, or what?
But this is what I got when I checked property.
