Well, I kinda lost track of dates and deadlines, and a couple of days ago I checked the contest details and, to my horror, I found I was a day away from the submission deadline rather than having several weeks as I thought. I don't know why I got mixed up about this, but I clearly fell foul of the cardinal sin of not putting important dates and deadlines into my calendar.
|The end state of a recent playtest where the defenders got a far-too-comfortable victory.|
I decided to make a few corrections to the rulebook that I had discovered recently, and then go for it. This being effectively an incomplete game, I am pretty much throwing away any realistic chance of winning in any of the contest categories, unless it turns out that I am the only entry in one of them! I am OK with this though. As with the regular 24 hour contests, I'm taking the main benefit as being an incentive to make something that I probably wouldn't have done otherwise, and learn something from the process.
If you fancy checking out the entries for the contest (and maybe voting when the voting page comes up in November), here's the contest thread.
