Got this from the RPG Maker news letter a couple of hours ago:
 

"As for the big 2014 Indie Game Maker Contest, we know you're all eager to find out the results! Judging all the entries we received has taken longer than we thought, but we hope to have winners announced in the next two weeks!"

It seems the pessimists (or realists?) will emerge victorious from this one.  :popcorn:

So then if it's not until the 3rd of September (most late guess) We can go for round two. I like this thread! :p

Makes waiting more fun.

Do you think we should reset the bets at a certain point? It kinda takes away the point & fun of the thread if clearly everyone will lose except one bet far away. But dunno. Up to you guys. :)

I was wondering IF things will stay idle until 3rd of September (this is the most late guess I think),

All of our guesses will be invalid right?

So we should start again by doing a second round. ;)

Why not just shuffle all bets forward by two weeks?

I know that I do have a horse in this race, but wouldn't allowing a bet reset completely eliminate the point of ever placing an outlier bet far into the future?

Maybe have a "second chance" round of betting with a different prize or something?

Yes, that's a good idea! In a while we can hold a second round for a smaller prize. Maybe everyone has to review that winner's game for why they SHOULDN'T have won the Grand Prize. (jk jk)

But seriously though, I like your idea. :)

Suffling everything forward by two weeks might work, considering that's been their only announcement of a timeframe xD

Except those who made a correct bet (2 weeks from now) would get screwed over. :p

But it wouldn't be exactly fair if someone who bet on this weekend to win instead of someone who correctly bet that it would still take 2 weeks for the results. ^_^;

Any way you slice it, we have another two weeks to wait, which means we all lose! XD

Give people the choice to shift their bet two weeks if they want to. I think that can work?

Oops, I didn't see anyone had guessed that far ahead. So yeah, scratch my suggestion, it wouldn't be fair.

I decided to rework my main character's portrait and logo at the same time....


Honestly I was going to use a lot more yellow in the game along with red and white to represent characters.... But yellow really is just like.... the ugliest color in the color pie. So er... I'm going to use blues/purples in place of it. :LZSwink:
XwwX OMG! Only 4 more weeks till I can leave my crappy job and never ever go back! I am SO freaking excited!!!
Sometimes, it's so hard to resist
"this boss is too easy, what if I add more gimmicks". Then I remember most of my players might be already dying fighting the boss.
You certainly should show love and recognition to teammates who have achieved great success! Congrats Eli!
Just 2 Days of no Internet and I made more Progress in my Game than last 2 Weeks combined. Now I know, Internet makes me a Lazy person.. :D
