I know how difficult is to choose only one game in each category, all the games are really GREAT, any game could be the winner and it would be a magnificent winner.

Because that, i can only recommend to play and enjoy them during the next days, before of making your vote (although you can change your vote in any moment before the voting deadline). And VERY IMPORTANT don't forget to give your feedback in the official thread, because the authors will love to read your opinions about them.

Oh, yes, thank's for pointing that out. Constructive critics is always welcome  :)
And it's good advice to play the game more than only a couple of times before voting  :)
Maybe a numbering 1-4 would be of interrest too, but I dunno if this feasibel at all.
 
Good luck all!

Unfortunately multiple votes with points is not feasible; we discussed that, and this is the best we could come up with. Perhaps next year we'll be better prepared! :)

Well, after the results we will open a thread to discuss how to improve the competition and make more attractive for the next year. For example, there was 20 projects registered and from those, only Cyber Hunh and Relentless have converted in real entries, lucky us we received two amazing surprises entries Overkoban and Subtera Puzlo... but we will discuss this in two weeks :)

Would it be possible to have a "mention sp├ęciale du jury" in the voting ?
"NOP" is the perfect program : short , fast and (known) bug free

Are individual team members all allowed to vote for their creation?, if so, this gives larger teams an advantage over the lone programmer.

Well, I *hope* that the participating developers are NOT voting at all; I think it's obvious how this would be wrong. :P


But even if they did, if we asume that Tom&Jerry would vote for his game and not the other games he participated in as musician, then the teams are pretty much equal in members. ;D

Wow Relentless looks and plays great for 16k ! Only had a quick blast , all are good little games . Relentless has great scrolling and sprite movement . And The graphics have a different feel/Style to anything I have seen on the Amstrad!

@syx I think the one thing that stood out as a lesson is that time was short... don't know about much else though.

@fano: you think there's meaning in that, with so few entries? What title would you give it?

As for participants voting, I think our little scene is cool enough to not go for self-voting. I wouldn't worry about it, but if you guys want, I can dig into the db and find out who gave what votes...

I must admit i've been happy to see Redbox/Egotrip entry, it is a nice surprise and the game is good.I think this entry desserves encouragements for the whole effort given in this projet, so i'd like to give it the honorific title "mention sp├ęciale du jury" (i am not able to translate this correctly , sorry)

Maybe for the next competition, you should include a "Most original ideas" category.

Well, no room for such a thing here :D Sure, I love all four (CH is running right now next to me), but none would win any accolades for originality... Well, here's hoping :)

Ok, added the extra option, let's see if it makes any sense :)

With so many categories, it is starting to look like it is run by Socialists who feel competition is bad and that everyone should win something just for taking part. :laugh:

 Excellent mix of games.
 Gotta love them chooks.Impressive amount of stuff on screen at once. Well done.
 I really liked subtera Puzlo. Just had to keep going back for another crack. Nice game mechanics.
 overkoban argh!!. Flashback to playing this frustrating game somewhere else. A pity the musics not playing during the game it would ease the mind crushing...so soothing.
 Relentless WOW !!!  :o
 Is that fifty frames a second. that blew me away so fast I didn't think it was possible. Well conceived and crafted game engine. Programming ... LEGEND ...
 And a big Thankyou to SyX for bringing this all about. ;D
 I'm sure there are others who gave it a crack and learned a lot .I know I did. Hopefully there will be another Comp.  8)

Maybe start the contest a bit earlier, with the same end date, that way there is more time and hopefully more people will complete their entries. Maybe having it run over winter when people are indoors more is a good idea.

6 months for "only" 16K ... Not, one year.
If you give more, you don't get more. Just peoples thought they can wait before starting.
(except if they do other things, but in this case, they can participle to the next contest)

But there is no way to guarantee that a person or team does not work on a project for only 6 months or less, if you allow them to enter the following year then they have 18 months to work on it whereas others will have only the prescribed "6 months or less".
