Dad 'n Me 2005-07-28 04:53:57
Talk about a nightmare; after not having the pleasure of submitting a new game to the Portal in such a long time, I had to miss the opportunity due to a POWER OUTAGE.
My power went out around 7pm and just now came back around 4:30am. It was agonizing, not to mention one of the hottest days of the year and we couldn't run the A/C.
I had to make the decision to either postpone the midnight launch of Dad 'n Me or give Dan the greenlight to submit without me, so I decided to disappoint myself rather than everyone else. One of my favorite moments in life is the initial response to a new submission - seeing the first reviews pour in and the first votes get tallied. The feeling is often more exciting than the first time I saw Alien Hominid on a store shelf and I think most Flash authors would agree it feels great when you first submit something new. It's a bummer I missed it, but now I get to catch up in the middle of the night!
Thanks so far for all the positive feedback, as well as the criticisms. The game was meant to be more for stress relief but we decided to add some challenges along the way, so I'll admit it may have turned out a bit imbalanced. I just hope everyone has fun knocking stuff around and creating chaos, which was the main goal of the game! Almost 12,000 views and a score of 4.65 after five hours on-line! Woohoo!
