Many thanks for the game it was one i was looking forward to playing, Hopefully my laptop will be back from manufacturers shortly so that i can enjoy playing it. Currently I'm using my also recently fixed Aspire One netbook.

Congratulations Rustybolts, now we just got to see what Maxim Bardin of LGN chooses to do with the copy he has got. That will have to wait due to unfortunate circumstances of course.

No worries, I've already thought of a contest - but the problem is that it would be very hard to judge from my standing.

Basically as I have 2 copies I thought of making a contribution contest in which one may contribute to any FOSS gaming project either in code or art (as there will be one winner in each category).
The contesters must not be already in that project and it must be their first contribution to that project.
The problem is that I am no programmer and I have a no idea how to judge the programmers.
Also as the gaming projects will be different it will be hard to judge which person contributed more or better.

That does not sound like a bad idea Maxim, though it does sound like something which could be rather difficult to judge. Still, I like the idea of using the prize as encouragement to support the free software community. And of course before one would embark on such a venture one would have to consider the rules and precepts of the contest. For example, does it have to be a purely game project, or would contributing to such things as a programming IDE to make it more game friendly, or contributing to Mesa (now it would be intersting to see if some of those developers are reading LGN!) also count as a contribution?

Re: Rustybolts wins Amensia TDD

Purely game projects (dunno about game engines), as the other stuff is related to a lot of things (you don't see me writing about Nvidia/ATI drivers on LGN nor about the X server).

I think I'll need some "outside judges" for this contest - "someone who knows" ;) , 1 programmer who contributed to a game project and 1 artist (but then again, they might choose the contester who contribute to their project). tough choices.
