Well isn't this bittersweet... I have tickets to the Spurs game tomorrow but that means I can't play all the great games until Wednesday! Ugh I can't wait!

I can only imagine the amazing ideas that'll come from "upgrade" considering the incredible ones from the last competition!

This site is a breeding ground for new and innovative games.
A site that interacts with the developers and doesn't just host what ever game they can find is not only good for the site, high traffic, but also us gamers who are demanding more from our casual games than a match four or lame platformers.
Great work.
Let's have at those games!

Jay, I have two questions:

1. Will the games be displayed in the similar 'gameboy' format?

2. What is the theme of this competition? I somehow missed it.

Thanks a ton!

I am GIDDY! I can't wait to see what has been entered. Someday when I have time, I am going to learn how to create games, so that all these ideas richocheting around in my head can come to life. Until then, I live vicariously through the games here at my home away from home.

Upgrade? So, will it be a DS-themed layout instead? :P
Only teasing.

Not that this game design competition will be bad, but I think it'd be better to leave a little more room between competitions in the future. (IIRC, CGDC5 was announced mere weeks after CGDC4 ended.)

I'd rather have these game design competitions be the exception rather than the norm, not only because the quality of the games will suffer if competitions are held too often, but I as a "casual gamer" will become more frequently "gamed out". I already experienced this to an extent during CGDC4; there were so many games coming one right after another that I just gave up and really didn't give many of the entries a chance. Perhaps this time give us two days or so to experience each game? I know it'll drag the competition out for a long time, but I think it would ultimately benefit the games themselves since it'll give everyone a chance to experience each one.

I dunno, my thoughts are kind of rambling at this point, but I just wanted to vent a little frustration over the competitions.

Perhaps Jay needs an "Upgrade"... (that was terrible)

Midnight!!!
I am twitching with anticipation for this!
Seriously thanks for getting the CGDC rolling, this is a great concept and works out well for Casual gamers, Work is going to be sweeter when this is finally released.

Any chances of a sneaky peak of what the interface is going be like this time? there always creative.

I disagree with Simone Manganelli, I would love a competition every month. I certainly understand that that would task Jay and the judges too much, and it's not realistic right now.

But as a designer and a player, I think it's not unreasonable to have competitions often, and everyone benefits. If a particular theme doesn't grab your fancy, you can hold out for the next one. Also, people's schedules change all the time, and they may not be able to participate in a current competition, but would like to in the future (my present case).

Keep up the great work, Jay. These competitions foster great creativity and feedback, and everyone gets a chance to play a bunch of awesome games!
