The winner of this vote will have no influence over our decision. The vote will run for around 72 hours (3 days). The order of the vote choices will be the order the games are submitted in.Tom2011-10-21 22:15:41
A couple questions: Will the official decision be announced before, after, or at the same time as the users choice badge? What type of games do you and Ashley like? Are there any criteria besides "I like it", such as technical expertise, asset quality, control behavior, etc? Will you comment each entry?
User choice badge vote will run whilst we are making our decision. Winners chosen by me and Ash will probably be announced a day before.
We like all types of games :) It's just a competition for fun, so we will be picking on the ones we find most fun.
We probably wont be commenting on each entry I am afraid. We WILL be playing every game, we guarantee that! And we will play it enough to get a good feel for it of course. There will be plenty of opportunity for community feedback, but it would take too long for us to review each one.
@MastaZavr I was just thinking the same thing about your game.
@Kyatric Thank you very much that means a lot. It was a lot of work. I almost didn't enter because I felt a little intimidated by all the great games already entered. But like Tom said it's just a competition for fun, and there's nothing like a little friendly competition to make you try harder.
For me, the best thing about this competition is having a deadline.. I swear, I've been creating games since I was 15 with Klik 'n Play, Multimedia Fusion, etc, and this is the first time I've actually finished a game (the frequent crashes of both said programs didn't help much).
And you always get to learn so much new stuff, too..
