JayLilo plushieIt's not often we get to post something on February 29th, so I'd like to take this opportunity to update you on a few things that have been happening around here.

First of all, Congratulations to Skarlath(!) for winning the adorable Lilo plushie from The Asylum! Skarlath's name was drawn at random this afternoon here at JIG headquarters, and we'll be sending out little Lilo just as soon as we get a shipping address confirmation (an email has been sent, so check your inbox Skarlath!).

Be sure to keep checking the site, as we'll be giving away another Asylum plushie again soon!

Next, you might have noticed a recent change made to the Recommended icon palette in the left sidebar. We recently added a new palette, Top Rated, made possible by the ratings widget that we also introduced recently. Please note these details:

  • Simply click on the name, Top Rated or Recommended, to switch between the two palettes.
  • Each time you click on the Recommended link to view a random selection of recommended games the list will refresh quickly and automatically without a page reload.
  • Each time you click on Top Rated or Recommended, your selection will be stored in a cookie so that your preference will be displayed each time you visit.

And finally, there are just 4 days left before Casual Gameplay Design Competition #5!!! Get your games finished up and sent in before the deadline of March 16, 2008, at 11:59PM (GMT-5:00) See the CGDC5 announcement page for all the details.

They're based in Rochester, NY, right?

At least they used to be, Allegra. But I wouldn't know if they have moved since then.

But thank you for saying that. That allowed me to go back and look at very early posts from 4 years ago. It's funny but I never knew that this was more of a personal blog back then.

Congrats Skarlath!

I hope these get done more often (if it can be afforded), this is pretty spiffy. :D

Throughout the world? I don't know why but I always figured most of the reviewers and you knew each other personally, or at the very least all lived in USA. Quite interesting.
