Do we want to enter another contest? It'll last another 60 days (December 30), so there's no need to worry about overworking ourselves as long as we budget our time.

The theme this time is just "Sci-fi"...which gives us quite a bit of wiggle room, and will also let us make that exploration game that psy wants.
-Nackster wants something original out of this
-No Star Wars games

The prizes this time are 100, 50, and 25 dollars...which means that even if we get first place, we'll still be working under minimum wage.

The sign up sheet is currently:
-QT

If you want to join, post on this topic, and I'll edit the list.
If no-one wants to join, I might start programming on my own...but for the sake of little children everywhere, I hope that doesn't have to happen.

I was just about to post about this as well. Beat me to it.

I'm willing to give this a shot but there's no way I can give such a big time commitment this time. I'll have a research project to be programming as well. A few more recruits and I'll make the usergroup.

Score 2 for QT!!!

Anyways, I don't think that you'll need to spend quite as much time as you did on NotHD. We have twice as much time, and this isn't going to be a tactical game.

Awwhhh.... cause a tactical space game would be awesome! Unless, by star wars, he meant space... that would totally suck.

Anyways, I'd love to work on Sci-Fi project. I was just thinking about it the other day. Sign me up!

I'll set up two more usergroups... I'll be spearheading the eventual block project as well.

Sorry about the weird timing. I should have made Block a while ago. Right now, I'd like to focus on SciFi and then see where Block goes as far as members go. It may be worth just waiting for now and see what we can brainstorm and assemble for materials. The contest has a time limit and must be acted upon.

Aulos, we can make a tactical space game if we want...but keep in mind that we (and by "we," I mean "psy") don't want to. It takes way too much time and consumes too much personal health.

If you can think of a simple version that won't take forever to program, by all means, suggest it.

That's alright, we understand! However, I'm putting my own projects on hold. Not that I was making much progress on them. Once we finalize ideas for project sci-fi , I'll do some sketches for that. Block game I already have an idea in mind for some monsters and the apprentice. I put them down quickly during latin.

Good luck! Seems like everyone's busy, huh?

Well I hope that this game won't be put off and we end up rushing despite the extra time.
