I am going to have to give this thought.
I'll have to take a two-week pause with the rest of my life.
I'd sign up, but there's no button or anything to do so, was it intended there be one?

Well, if you find it too restrictive for your game that you're making, you can always just not participate in the event and then submit the game to RMN anyway.
Anaryu is signing up. I have no hope of winning.

I have a long history of coming second in everything so this would suit me fine. =P
>.> <.<

I think I'll give this a shot...I have to get my hand in game-making at some point, rather than game-playing...
I might give this a shot as well. With something else to do, It'll make it easier on me to take a break from making tons of faces for my tons of characters.
