..:: RELEASE SOMETHING! DAY III ::..
..:: The Demo Day Edition ::..
..:: June 20th, 2008 ::..


Release Something! Day is back with a twist! The concept is still simple: we encourage everyone to release a demo on the 20th of June (even if it is a half-finished or semi-broken demo project) and then everyone plays everyone else's stuff and comments on it! (please!)

We will have three threads:
1. One for signing up and advertising Release Day! intentions (this thread)
2. One for posting your release (no comments in this one)
3. And one for posting your thoughts and reviews of the released content

Of course, it is still Release Something...BUT if you release a demo, I GUARANTEE that one of the Admin, Staff and/or Contributors will write a review of it (this is in writing so it must be true).


We are also fishing for ideas to encourage participation! And not just for releases (which was pretty good last time) but for reviews and feedback. What kinds of things would you suggest to encourage more written feedback? A contest of some sort perhaps? Show us your creativity, RMN!

Sign me up! I'll most likely have a full game out as I'm working on a small project at the moment. But call it Old Man right now. :)

This made my day, I love these things.
Sign me. ^.^ I have a couple of old projects floating around and by then I may have enough of 'Realms Shattered' to release (no promises as yet.)

Ideas - perhaps something that can go in sigs to advertise the event on other forums? And maybe choose a prize or something for the best review at the end - say something custom of the winners choice that can be used in their current project?

Hmm yeah may as well sign me up for Whatever. I never knew it was release ANYTHING I always thought you had to release something substantial like a small demo shit like that. ;D
I'm almost afraid to sign up because I've backed out of the last two, but sure.
I anticipated my release in June anyhow, so!
I'll most likely have another Philadelphia release.
Oh, come on, the 20th? I'm hoping to get my demo done in a week or two :(

RS! Day is (roughly) quarterly.
This would be good motivation to work on SOMETHING, so I am going to sign up say that peopel can expect something from me. I have been toying with a bunch of different things for the last year, so this is a good chance to make them into something.

Well, there's a way around that. I'm having a Release event myself on the 24th of this month at IGP. Future events will be halfway between RSes, though.

This should be good to keep the economy game making community rolling.

I should get back to visiting IGP on a regular basis.

I started Hellion for a contest there, and I was happy how that turned out (I won the contest by default - the only other entry was by AznChipmunk and he doesn't count ;) )
Craze

Karsuman/Craze will release the first two chapters of ARIA.
Deadlines motivate me moar! This time I will release a demo, if I don't, just fricken ban me or something.
I thought IGP was pretty much dead, but I seem to have been mistaken.
IGP will return. I am not dead and neither is my mutated online baby.

On June 20th I may release something, be it methane or actually something playable.
Assuming Beta can finish by then, I'll have the next chapter (3rd one) of Second Reality: Reflections ready to go.

I'm bringing this world back for you and for me.

Whoa. June 20th? That is the day before my birthday. What a nice present you are all giving me. ;D
Yeah, put me down on the list Kentona. I will release something but not entirely sure what. It may be the full version of Demon Destiny if i have enough time.
Hmm... I'll flirt with that release date. Hopefully my brother and I can finish the last 50% of the first chapter in a month and a half. I also hope the game has a title by then.
