I deleted some games--setting the record straight

Hello (no, I'm not making games again, sorry) Recently I was looking back at some of my old games and I decided to remove several of them from the game list. (OHR House, Thanksgiving Quest, and others) Somebody reached out to me and asked me why I had done this and so I'm here to set the record stra...

In response to giant deleted post: I'm not here to dash anyone's dreams or whatever. As they say, advice is free, and that's all I offered. But as the guy who made OHR House (16 years ago even), I believe even if there's some perceived value to it or it inspired you somehow, I suggest doing your own...

Don't make a new OHR House. Make something you will respect yourself for making in 15 years. That's my advice.

There's no need to be sorry; it's nothing outside of my control. I'm simply not going to have time for it, and I didn't even work on it when I had time for it. Making games isn't as fun or interesting for me as it used to be.

Please don't put Motrya in this if you're doing it. Thanks. I really don't want to disappoint more people, as I'm unlikely to work on it again for several years, if ever.

In the past (before this contest and to some extent Hamsterspeak) tons of games would just be uploaded and ignored on the various OHR sites. I think the contest serves a somewhat valuable purpose. Even if the feedback isn't necessarily what the author wants to read, at least they are getting somethi...

Sorry about the confusion. This was all well over a year ago, so I got some streams crossed. There was a separate thread for discussing Motrya here: http://www.slimesalad.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5971 The reviews in the contest thread were just links to the posts in that thread for the most part, i...

Well, if the contest is meant for new content to be reviewed, then how come nobody defended Motrya when every review sans Giz's in last year's contest had nothing to do with the new content? In fact, Pepsi, you yourself made a point to speak only of the Chapter 1 content. (Don't misunderstand my int...

Going to have to agree with Spoonweaver. Charbile's original review of the Batman game is entirely valid, especially if he had never played it before now. Why should the onus be on the reviewer to even keep track of what content is new anyway? Maybe it mattered for the Heart contest, but certainly n...

Closing Thoughts I wasn't impressed with the crop of games this year. I don't have much else to say, but as a guy who had basically ignored these forums for 8 months or so, I came back finding little of value. Props to the authors for continuing to put out games, and I hope you guys learned things ...

Winged Realm I've been waiting this entire contest to play a game I might actually be excited for, and it actually happened here. Winged Realm is a great NES-style RPG just waiting to happen, and aside from a few minor hiccups, it's off to a great start. It's important for a game going 8-bit to hav...

Troll Over Troll Over is mostly an acceptable little RPG. You play as a troll who finds a naked human sitting around and adopts him as a pet, then walk around beating up animals. I didn't finish the game, but I probably played it most of the way, and it's what I'd call passable, but not particularl...

Spy Game While Spy Game was obviously made for some contest, it has a really strong idea that makes for a fun 30 minutes and probably could have been more. You're playing as an undercover agent with the ability to disguise herself as other people on sight, investigating the disappearance of some ch...
