If you haven't been keeping up with our 5th Casual Gameplay Design Competition, you should know that most of the games have gone through several updates based on feedback received since we rolled them out last week. So, you really owe it to yourself to check out the latest upgraded versions.
And now we invite everyone to take part by voting for your favorite(s). Each finalist is represented by its icon along with a "vote" button next to it. The vote button will take you to a PayPal donation form where you may donate $1 (USD) or more to the respective game. (You do not need a PayPal account to vote, PayPal accepts credit cards as well.)
We are limiting voting to only those who donate as it discourages ballot stuffing. And besides, it's only a dollar, so please show some support for all the effort these talented designers put forth for you to enjoy. No one is obligated to vote, and all we are asking for is a single dollar from each of you.
At the end of the competition (April 7th), all of the votes will be tallied and the game that receives the most community votes will be awarded the Audience Prize of $500!
All proceeds* from the vote donations will go directly to each respective game designer(s). Of course you may donate more than a dollar when you vote, though your vote will still count as just one vote. (*Your donation less any fees PayPal deducts prior to our receiving it. For reference: PayPal takes $0.33 from a one-dollar donation, but only $0.45 from a five-dollar donation.)
The deadline to vote is Sunday, April 6, 2008 at 11:59 PM (GMT-4:00).
To cast your vote, simply use the PayPal ("Vote") link next to the game icon you wish to vote for, and then enter your donation amount in the PayPal form. "Vote for this game" links have also been added to the competition page for each entry. Thank you kindly for your anticipated contributions of support!
Total from voting... $437.34!
Not quite the level of support we've seen in previous competitions. Our sincerest thanks to everyone who voted and for your kind support of these competitions!
