    Hey LD.

    You’re awesome.

    I was going to post the usual frustrated-about-voting-results post. But I let it sit there for a while and realized it was useless. I just wanted to say thanks for the great LD as usual, and thanks to everyone who commented on my game! And a really big thanks for those of you who gave me a rating for community even though the game didn’t even work for you. The comments are always my favorite part of post-compo fun and I’m thankful for those that I got.

    I tried to put all the over-thinking of it and strategics away this round; I Named the game what I wanted to, not something that would show up on top just for the sake of it showing up on top. I didn’t like the theme; I threw it in the gutter and made a game I actually enjoyed. Hell, I wasted an hour making “box art”. I just had fun and I hope y’all did too. I’ll see you at the Mini-LD!

      Good thinking. I think. :)

    2. This is the true meaning of Ludum Dare. Votes don’t matter. This is not a popularity contest, it is a catalyst to help you develop a game quickly. I’m totally with you on this one. =)

        Couldn’t agree with you more!

        I mainly enter LD for the community, but it’s always good stimulation for making new games.

        That’s why I enter the jam: Less pressure and the extra time that some ideas may need.
