I don't know how duplicating it all for HamsterSpeak would work. A lot of the games I've reviewed have already had really good write-ups, and I don't want to be retreading an entire year's worth of games and taking up space/attention that could going to guys who're making games and want feedback in 2012. At any rate, I'm glad you're enjoying it.Pepsi Ranger wrote:I really like Giz's series. The 48 Hour review might just be one of the best I've ever read (well, I can't call it a review as much as a walk through history, but it's still one of the best accounts of the OHR's past to come around in a long time). This entire series needs to be duplicated for Hamsterspeak, especially the 48 Hour history lesson. Excellent job, Giz.
I feel bad about that review. It's always better to have released something than to have released nothing and I really hope you don't doubt yourself in the future because of anything I wrote. I kind of wobbled off into jokeyness at the end of my review, but I meant it when I said it was a good game for 24 hours.Master K wrote:Yeah, I did make Labyrinth in half the time I had. I was going to be doing a lot of travelling in the next few days, some of which clashed with the contest. However, I had an idea and determination, so I said "Might as well try." and The Labyrinth came into existence after starting in the morning, working past midnight, and then polishing it up the next morning and eagerly launching it.
Ah well. It's another game on my list.
That's really a bad part of this contest. It's inspired a lot of reviews which is great, but then 4 people review a game out of nowhere and it's like the whole world is dogpiling on it. There's nothing worse than getting lectured a million times about something, and I wonder what future review contests could do to try and minimalize this.
I've been tempted to quit writing these reviews and make a game. It really seems easier at this point, but I think doing reviews and thinking critically about so many different games is going to make me a better game maker in the long run. Too bad your name isn't on my list, I bet you would've given me plenty of good stuff to think about.Charbile wrote:Master K and Giz are the best. I'd love to see more games by you two. I like reading what Giz has to say, don't get me wrong, but I'd much rather see him in action if you know what I mean~
What the heck's up with that, anyway? I thought I was the one who was semi-retired. Get back to work, you bum!
I didn't vote for the 48 Hour contest because outside of James' game, I didn't have much nice to say. Something just rubbed me the wrong way about all of them, even my own. I'm going to be just as hard on "Virtual School 2" and if you think I'm not or you think I'm being unfair, I'm willing to hear you out on it. Sorry in advance.Gizmog is going to write/ wrote:*mean stuff about the rest of the 48 Hour games*
