The Rock Out contest is officially over, and I know many of you are stoked: no more half-assed attempts at recreating games that are already classics (DDR and Guitar hero, mostly).
Personally, I'm sad. The last day of the contest saw dozens of submissions, most of which were incomplete games, and nearly every last day submission was voted down to nothing (either by contestants who were already in the game, or people who were just that sick of seeing the same theme over and over and over again.)
There was one game, however, that might have slipped through the cracks a little too soon. Reviews are all really great, but it's long gone from the front page, and you'll probably never even see it.
So this is my eulogy (and shameful plug) for We Are Legend: a game that took 180 hours to develop and died before it even saw the light of day.
Anyone else feel like their quality game got burned by bad timing and unbalanced voting?
(And if you voted 0 on it after you read this post, and I know some of you did, you should be ashamed of yourselves. I'd love to make more games, but I'm not into playing politics. If you're gonna shit on this game without even looking at it or giving me any feedback as to why you didn't like it, you're really just making sure that I won't submit games to NG anymore.)
HAHA! The game's doing great now. Looks like bitching about things on your profile can actually make a difference. Thanks to everyone who played the game!
