For some reason I haven't been in the mood to make any official comment on the whole Slamdance fiasco... I think I've just been too busy and worn out lately to get too wrapped up in it and I'm tired of eDrama.
I was disappointed in Slamdance for pulling Super Columbine - it's an amazing game and deserved to be there. At the same time, I sympathized with Slamdance because I deal with so much shit here on Newgrounds (although we've lost endless sponsors and have never pulled a submission due to complaints from advertisers, so in reality, I shouldn't sympathize too much).
Anyway, while I disapproved of their decision, I still wanted to support their effort to have an independent games festival. In the end, though, I feel not much effort was made to do damage control on the situation. The whole event is marred in controversy and most of the other developers won't be there, so it seemed time to withdraw, rather than spend six days celebrity-spotting.
