THE FEATURED GAME THREAD

So.... are we just not doing a Featured Game this month?

...Yeah ♥. 2022 was kind of crazy last year around this time and we missed featured game, 2023 is looking to be the same.
I'm okay with passing on featured game if it's half way through the month in January.
At this point, It won't be fair to the one who does get featured - Please understand guys, this year was kind of crazy.

Sometimes we just gotta slowdown a bit and recuperate.

I'll concede that this wouldn't be the first time the featured game hasn't been updated. However, I'd rather avoid that situation, if possible.

As for what's happening now, we shouldn't be in a position to not feature a game. If nothing else, there's a running list of games to feature here in the case nothing else notable comes forward. There's also three users (maybe four if anky can do it) who have the access to set what the featured game is.

*Edit: I also have to wonder if stuff like not updating the featured game (or simply not having one), is going to affect the Misaos. The current vote-count is 457 as of this writing, and the season is half over. The season with the least votes on record was 2009 (I'm not counting last year, because I know that was done off-site), at 737 votes.

I dunno. I suppose those numbers will speak for themselves, when the time comes.
I decided to let this month rest and highlight instead the Misao voting on the front page. I'd rather not push people towards any of the current nominees and give them a boost that way.

We could do an older game but sometimes it's good to have a rest. Next month will be whoever won goty (if they haven't already - if they have been, then one of the other winners), so that's already sorted.

One of these days Vindication will be in a state where it's worthy of being a featured game. One of these days...

(spoiler: RMN will be gone and I will be dead before it gets to that point)

I say we throw up this suggestion from 2011, just to spite LockeZ

Haha, do it! Feature it for the next 10+ days! He'll be whatever the opposite of vindicated is!

YES!!! XDXD
The first featured game of 2023 has now been vindicated ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

I'd really like to get rid of LockeZ. His play style is way too unpredictable. He's always like this too. If he ran a country, he'd just kill and imprison people at random until crime stopped.

How did my game get featured without Liberty mentioning it to me during the six hours we spent on voice chat on Monday playing tabletop games...

At one point I was going to make a sequel called Vindication 2: Complacency...

Well, thanks! It's weird - when I first made the game I was very proud of it, and then as I got better at making games I started to feel like it kind of sucked and I didn't want people to think of it as the kind of game I made. And now my thoughts have come full circle, and I think it's a very solid retro game of a type that will probably appeal to a lot of people, even though it's not what at all like I would make today.
