I signed up for National Game Development Month. Here is my page: http://nagademo.com/registry/151

Anyone else doing this or want to give it a try? Just two days left before it starts.  :O

This sounds like a great idea, and distraction!
I'm in a slump with my maze game, getting to the finishing stages is so boring!

Here's my entry:
http://nagademo.com/registry/177

AH! How do you edit your entry!  Ha, skipped the word 'awhile' after 'in my head for'!  Now I look stupid!
Now I'll probably loose . . . wait, everybody wins?!  (who finishes their game that is!)
A really long Ludemdare contest, great idea!

We should get GLBasic added to their '2D (and/or 3D) Game Engine' section on their resources page:

Cool! :good: So glad you're in. I'll follow your progress feed if its feed-able. If not I'll just click the link.

Wish I could edit my entry too. I think this is the first year this has been done, which might explain why the website feels so alpha.  ;/

BTW I think its 'a while' rather than 'awhile' after 'in my head for'. Awhile is an adverb.

I did set up a Twitter account, and I may use that too.
I have never sent a tweet yet, so this will be a good time to start!

I'm too lazy to learn a proper web site editor, or to figure out a new blogging template thingy.
So, I'll just be using straight HTML via a text editor for my blogging, nothing fancy.


A day before the 'contest' starts, and I was entry 177, so it doesn't sound that popular.
To me it's a great opportunity to start something new, and kick start my juices again.

Ha, I wrote 'a while' first, then removed the space, and it was a valid word too.
I hate the English language!  Usually I'm good at picking the correct word, but once in a while (or awhile? ha) I get it wrong.  What's worse: skipping a word, or writing the wrong word? ha

Looking forward to see what you come up with.  (Oops, ended that sentence with a preposition)

177 doesn't sound like a lot and I do kind of wish there was a more competitive aspect to this. Oh well. Apparently Ludum Dare was going for eight years before they got their first compo with over 200 entrants.

BTW its grammatically correct to can end a sentence with a preposition in some instances. Your last paragraph would be a good example. *troll smiley*

Very cool. Maybe by this time next year I will be up to joining, myself.  :D
