So how many people have finished so far then?
I have submitted my entry...

It has never really been tested, so I'm sure there will be all sorts of crazy bugs, grammar errors and mapping faux pas's. I hope I have included all the files needed to play it.
Sorry for my game mess up! I'm fixing it right now!
Still awake at 5am but my game is finished! I can't believe it.

Just need to add credits and submit it which I will do tomorrow.
Sleep now.
I just had to do a fix because the game started at the end and now it starts where it's supposed to. I'm actually kind of pissed that no one tried to even contact me about it. :(
So how many people have finished so far then?
I count 14 so far. Soo many games. Also we've got just under 14* more hours, I wonder how many we will end up with.

*EE made a countdown timer that I had been using and it was wrong! *shakes fist*
Also we've got just under 22 more hours

Wouldn't UTC be just 14 more hours or so?

Additionally, I've submitted a page for mine, but I'm putting the finishing touches on mine, so I don't have a download quite yet. Really cutting it close. :x
I'm happy that if game pages haven't been accepted that you can post a download link here in this thread.
I'm post because I want to see how much time it is.
why would i heal when i could equip a morningstar
You the practice of self-promotion
So I guess there's 11 hours left ...
I'm just relieved I finished it early. I remember in the Lite Cookoff I rushed it to no ends.
Finished my game and submitted it.
Now all I have to do is deal with the depression and feeling of emptiness that comes from losing something that kept your mind busy 24/7 for the last month.
why would i heal when i could equip a morningstar

huff huff huff

only... a few more levels......... to goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

(why did i decide to make a game, even a silly comedy game, in three days this is almost as bad as trying to finish chaos and i's project in three days)

edit: sayin' up front that this has far less aimless wandering than Wine & Roses because that game took me two fucking weeks to map why did i do that
