So it is a game development competition, not a game design competition?

i like flash games too, but this competition isn't for me :D (i can't programming in flash and can't pixxelling very well...)

I actually like flash games. Mainly because you can play them anywhere, school, relatives house, etc...

Too bad I can't make one though. :\

well I for example like the good old C++ with Allegro, SDL or OpenGL/GLUT, never made anything in Flash/Actionscript or Javascript... (but probably learning them on a mediocre level wouldn't take too much time, I think ;)) but I don't have free time in September so I couldn't enter this compo anyway :P

sry for my english, I'm too lazy too check for mistakes ;P

PS oh, and I think I can understand Wolverine, plaing games in browsers has a bit different vibe to it. For me the annoying part is that You usually can't make them fullscreen and fully enjoy the climax (? I dunno if this is the right word :P) of the game :]

Why is the fact that it's browser-based running people off?

It's just like making any ol' Flash game and exporting. :/

Browser-based, no thanks.

ugh.. I was interested in that until it said 'browser-based'.  I don't even like playing games in a browser at all never mind wanting to make one.  Shame though cos the Explore theme is something I like.

ActionScript is the easy part. The hard part is learning how to properly bash your head into the desk as to knock yourself out immediately after dealing with it for hours.

Hm.. it's times like these that make me wish I knew how to use actionscript.
