It seems to be working fine for me, Pep.

Wow, what a challenge. I immediately thought of that beautiful new Amanita game for the BBC. That may be a bit young, but maybe something along those lines, with their sad and beautiful interface.

I'm also being denied.

I'm in the UK, could that be something to do with it?

Yep, getting the Forbidden error too. I think LazyPint is right, the website is probably set up to only accept views from a certain country, probably only Americans can see it.

I'm glad to see that they extended the deadline another month.

I've designed something for this, producing it with a few others. The key is, there are other kinds of violence than physical violence. Once you realize that, there's a pretty ripe design space to play in.

without using any violence

Darn. That pretty much rules out my new game, Teen Dating Machine Gun Massacre.
