Rise From The Ashes

Haha, I died again!

You thought it was dead, never to be seen again...but now it has returned! And it's ready for revenge! Yes, competition 33, Floating Island, is back from the grave, bringing with it a wave of zombified minions. Due to a series of unfortunate timing and communications mishaps, the judging process of the competition...well, it never happened. Once we got to grips with the fact that it wasn't going to happen, we realised that many of the entries that were uploaded to temporary hosting websites were no longer available.

Instead of chasing people up to get the entries re-uploaded, we're opening the compo up again so people can get their entries in. Because of the rather long time it took us to do this, we're giving everyone a month to polish and upload their entries - and yes, you can enter now even if you didn't before! We've swapped out the judging team, and I can assure you that none of them plan on getting 100-hour-per-week jobs any time soon, so judging will actually happen this time!

Some quick notes:
* If you already entered the competition the first time, we will judge your entry if it is still downloadable. If you used a temporary host or are unsure, please resubmit your entry.
* A number of people submitted late entries to Grim via private message, we do not have access to these entries. Please resubmit them!
* If you need a place to upload files, please contact me and I will organise a more permanent place for your entry to be uploaded.
* No extensions this time! If you miss the 1 month entry window, too bad! We plan to judge the entries immediately after the competition ends.

The treatment of this competition so far has just not been fair to you guys, and for that I want to apologise. As a small way to make it up to everyone, I've also decided to add some prizes in the form of Steam games (or from any digital service that supports Paypal payments) for the three place winners (prize values to be decided).

You can submit your entry to the competition by clicking here.

Was looking forward to playing the entries, guess I'll have to wait a bit longer. I might try to enter this now, got a few ideas.

Prize Suggestion: maybe offer new Operation Bravo passes to a few runner's up, as honourable mention placements ;)

I was intending to actually enter a competition for once, but then this last week was the busiest week I've had in years. Somehow I don't think I'm going to get my entry done in the next two hours and fifteen minutes.

There's always the next one.
