Congratulations, well deserved! Still playing it on and off, despite its obvious flaws.

Well, it wasn't much fun ending up last with two votes even behind Alpha Channel Effects - Open Source!

Makes you wonder about some things.

But Iíll give the community benefit of doubt and say my entry isnít the currently popular genre.

Congrats, Pixelthief.

Lachie Dazdarian, your game was spectacular, you should try releasing it on another site where it might find it's real audience.

Thanks Nick. But, I'm kinda lost finding the right community to share it with.

Disappointed with the feedback (or the lack of) I got in the and forums. Don't know where else to try, and, there should be a limit. I don't want to spam the whole freaking net.

Hey how DO you submit a game to derek and company over at tigsource anyway? Or are they just noting ones they see around? I'd love to get gridquest out there
Posted by Cecilectomy 11th June, 2008

you should prolly post it on the forums under "tigdb" >> "submissions"

but i see you already found that

hope it gets front paged!!!

O yeah

Lachie, tbh, on the TIGs forums the Procedural comp has taken up most people's attention. I did download your game from there but forgot to post (but now have so check it out).

Oh, Lachie, don't take it so harshly. It's an unpopular genre, although insanely popular with the AGS community. I think a lot of people who make games like that quit the klik community to join another one.

Besides, if you look at the top 3 games, all of them were good! Better than most of last week's GOTW. And I would've even voted for Alpha Channel Effects, because it taught me something new.
