The holiday hangout will go online tomorrow! If there's anything in the regular subforums that you're going to want to access over the holidays, copy it now while it's still accessible.
Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Wario Ware Wi-Scores Competition with Prizes - Important Update!
Wario Ware! I love it. You love it. At least I hope you love it or this will be a fairly short lived project.
The perfect distillation of the minigame formula, reduced to absurdist levels into twitch microgames, rewarding quick reflexes and memory with tasty, tasty high scores. However, beating your own high scores gets old after a while and you want real competition. Flesh and blood. Someone you can mock or envy without giving yourself some kind of split personality disorder.
As such I would hopefully like to instigate a regular high score contest and get some good old fashioned competition going. A simple enough concept. One of the many, many scoring opportunities in the games will be picked and you have two weeks to get the highest score you can manage and hope that you're the very best, like no one ever was. Historical high scores are no use here, we're after what you can achieve within the allotted two week time period. Pictures for the bestest scores would be good but we're a generally principled bunch and I'm happy that we can operate effectively on the honour system.
I'm so keen to make this a success that, for the first round at least, I am offering to provide (and ship internationally if required) an actual physical prize. I warn you though, I play a mean WarioWare and don't intend on having my score beaten if I can avoid it!
The prize on offer, as long as I get five entrants other than myself, is one of the cute l'il Link figures pictured below:
So who's in? In order to gauge the best game to pick for the opening round, your interest post needs to include the following survey of games you own or have access to:
