I didn't know you guys did this kind of stuff, it's an awesome surprise. Being new here, I didn't know much about the history of this place so that was interesting to read about. I also liked your suggestions for conveying darkness in horror games. I've had difficulty presenting night in sprite games.

I did have a question about completed games. Would games made as a proof of concept (say I was making my first game in html 5 or trying out a new mechanic) be considered completed games or demos? An argument can be made for either, I just didn't know the level of polish expected for finished games (polish levels were brought up in the zine).

Hmm. I think if it has a clear start and finish, and some kind of score, it will count as a complete game, but someone else will have to comment on that. I should probably remove "Fishing from Afar" as it's probably letting the side down.

Other than that I think whatever you're happy with. If you consider it finished and would be happy playing it then it probably fits in completed games.

The articles forum should be a good content source for a new ezine

Nice, short reads and a better layout than previous ezines.

Looking back at the old ezines they're all universally awful, so it's not difficult. :grin:

Very cool.
I thought the rpg maker cheat section at the end was a really cute idea.
