This weeks entrants - Pined Pine Mania, Ninja Assault, and Boulderdodge 2.

Well, I'm back. From a wonderful, peaceful, relaxed holiday, to be welcomed back by absolutely nobody, and then continuing the rather depressing chore of running GOTW. Again. Lazy, smelly admins.

I recall being banned from doing the GOTW, but doing it anyway cause no one else would/did. I can't deny the smelly part though...I've been riding my bike all week in some fairly high temperatures. Anyway, welcome back Circ.

Was there ever any chance of this NOT winning the GOTW?

Scurvy Sanchez SE for GOTW! XD

aww, no locked 2 in gotw?;)
Posted by The Chris Street 16th July, 2005

Absolutely not. The reason being that its an upgrade. I was severely flamed for adding Titan Omega twice to GOTW when Jay improved it, and as a general rule we don't allow upgrades to take part in GOTW.

Please excuse the behaviour of my groupies.

It's disappointing to see Hedge isn't in GOTW. It's a pretty neat game.

Add the evil dead return. And no, it's not a fangame
Posted by The Chris Street 17th July, 2005

Evil Dead Returns: No, because the description is rubbish. Locked 2: Very very old! Hedge: Only 1 level.

So old games can't have a go at the gotw? :(

hey, is it your or Rikus's site? XD

Hey, don't blame us for being smelly. It's not my fault that there's no water in the pipes here even though it rains every day. Just because a game doesn't have a good description doesn't mean it's a good game. But then again, the GOTW does belong to TDC, and it makes a nice example of "respect our rules or miss out on winning the glamourous GOTW award".

Well I always thought that to get onto the GOTW the game should meet the following criteria, according to past discussions with admins: 1. No demos or abandonware! 2. Decent descriptions! 3. Screenshots! 4. New games! I'm sure that I could resubmit the Zone Runner Compilation I made in the hope that it'll win GOTW - it didn't last time, and its not that old. If people think like that, we'll see a load of rehashed old games submitted to TDC in the hope they'll get a second chance at winning GOTW. Thats my opinion anyway, but it is technically your site Rikus and I dont want you to think I'm trying to usurp you or undermine you, because I'm not. All I'm doing is standing up for what I believe in.
