re PyTom>> Well, I hope you can think of something before then. =) Btw, any chance of a workable ALICE before March? (So I know to step up artwork production before focusing on my NaNoRenO/IntRenAiMo game.)

re bookie>> Yay! :does dance: I'll have everyone's names up at the site today. 8)

It may mean some reviews for this years NaNoRenO games though... ^^ If you'd rather not have the possibility of your game being reviewed, just tell me and I'll make sure not to mention it. =)
Interesting... a press release...
*imagines eclipse at press conference, with microphones* :P

Anyway I'm in with the reviews, I won't have any hard feelings if someone doesn't like my games, and actually I think it'd be fun to see some serious Transfer Teacher writeoff :P :P

My sources say yes.

ALICE will not be a hard thing to program, when I'm in the appropriate mood. The problem is, traditional GUI programming is annoying (if not really all that hard), so it's just tough to get into the right mood for it.

Compare this to Ren'Py, which is mostly an enjoyable thing to modify, since much of it is in my field of expertise, and what isn't is code I mostly wrote from scratch, and hence understand fully.

So what winds up happening is that ALICE gets subsumed under Ren'Py tinkering, most of the time.

(Also, perhaps, the sample data I have to work with isn't Moe enough, so I'm not getting enough Moe-tivation. I apologize for the horrible pun.)

re mikey>> Cool! :writes mikey under approved list: I'm rather curious about the average game reviewers opinion of our games as well and NaNoRenO is a good excuse - I mean reason.

re clubanimon>> Alright. :waits: Made up your mind now? j/k

re PyTom>> If it's Moe-tivation you're looking for, I'll send some Moe along. (Hey, you started it! :P)

Mikey -> I Never said I wouldn't try yo enter.... I'm trying to organize my school, personal and free time.... once I do that I may be able to charge Iluminaire again.... It will take a while since I can't make downloads right now but I might be able to advance with the script.

I won't let this project die, I'm not the kind of guy to give up on things :D :wink:

Welcome back Otaku Dash! :D

Kicking the idea around on whether or not to join...mikey got me thinking maybe I should give it a try...Still not positive whether I'll actually do a game or not though. It would be my first foray into making a game, if I do :) When is the deadline to sign up?

Well, since the more the merrier, let's hope that I can finish with mine at the time duration.

I will sign for IntRenAiMo, please.

EDIT: Should be able to make it, if I exclude gaming hours. :P

lol So true! But considering all the pressure in March, I don't know if you'll even have time to play games. ^_^

Anyways, welcome to the event you guys! =D
I'll add you two asap.

Whoa, I don't think I said I was planning on two games. I just said that we'll have to see what happens. Though, I would really like to. I have a game in progress that... well... hasn't been making progress ^_^;;; I'm such a perfectionist, that I can't make up my mind as to the "perfect" way to advance the story. Hopefully I can overcome this, and finish this game before March 1st, and then have all of March to work on the second game. Having made the first game should make the second game easier... I hope o_O. I'd release both games near the end of March. Of course, this would be the ideal outcome. I think it's all based on how soon I finish the first game. If I can finish the first game by march 1st for IntRenAiMo, then I'll also shoot for NanoReNo- otherwise I'll just go with finishing IntRenAiMo. As I said, we'll just have to see what happens
