Christmas Compo Closure!
News posted 18th December, 2002 by The Chris Street  
Well, you have a very short amount of time to submit your creations to the competition. It closes today at 11.59pm GMT (or for Australia, its Thursday 10.59AM - time zones, etc)

Please, please, please, for the love of God, make sure your submissions actually work. Make sure the download link actually links to the internet URL, and not to D:// like someone did!

Anyhow, this is the closing paragraph, we're expecting a sudden deluge of entries, so don't disappoint us XD

Damn it. I'll never have my game finished in time :|. Oh well, another unstarted game thrown into my "abandoned" folder. Procrastination is bad....

Patrick: Get a server like Geocities or Tripod. Then upload your game onto the server. The server should tell ya what you need to do. Of course, games hosted on Tripod won't be eligible to enter the contest...

Hmmm... I uploaded the game as 4 zipped files with a total of approx. 998 kb., because netfirms wouldn't allow files greater then 256 kb. to be downloaded.... Really hope that's allowed for taking part of the contest...8)

i have a question... are we allowed to put out our christmas games now? or must all games be cept secret until 24th? im leaving for holiday at 23th... 2 weeks.. i would realy like to have some of the new christmas games with me on laptop..

No, you cant put up your Xmas games now, they'll be revealed hopefully on 24th December Sorry to those who didn't make the deadline, I had a DC mail from someone asking if I could get someone to submit their game after the deadline cos he didn't get to upload it in time. Nioreh: your dload was fine D. Ferdinandz: your game probably wasnt accepted as you submitted more than one file and the rules state one file per person Steve: sadly, you didnt make it in time either Everyone has had plenty of opportunity and time to upload their games. In the forums Neo volenteered to host any submitted games ages ago. In the end, it wasn't technically a short competition, you had over a month to plan and execute a game. But anyway, we had 12 elegible entries, and the admins are playing them and scrutinizing them this very moment
