Judging by the other entries so far it seems I'm out of my league! Oh well. Just going to plug away at it anyway.
it's cool once my download gets accepted it will encourage you to continue on the basis that you can't get more halfassed than this.

this is a subtle reminder for someone to accept the download! i'm a dyin i'm a dyin *chokes, slides slowly under waves*

I'm done playing catmitts's entry. I wonder when we'll see gamepages for projects other than kentona's and calunio's entries.

I really need to get working on my entry. Granted, it's such a small-scale project that it should easily make it out by the 16th, but still.

It's a bit late to start, but I'm going to try. I'm not certain if I'll have the game done in time, but if not I'll drop out.
Gonna be tough, especially with no rips or soundtrack downloads allowed, but I think I cna find some "Free use" items.
Darn i forgot bout it mostly cus ive been trying to submit my demo for a game but it hasnt seem to have been worthuenoughy in description and map so ya...

Thanks for the tip, kentona. I guess if people don't post it here, mention Game Gale in their game description or gamepage, the only way for me to guess a game is related to this competition is by seeing the name(s) of the developer(s) or a blurb vaguely related to escaping.

This event has roughly a billion participants but I've only heard about actual work on this from about a half dozen teams.

How is everybody doing?
I've got the planning and some rough maps done, but nothing pretty and no game title yet to make a page with. Hoping to finish the majority of production this weekend so next week can be polish and testing.
