Finally, the results are up:

I never was able to actually play the games other than to take screenshots, so (un)fortunately there are no profound write-ups.

Yay Leverton!

I was genuinely worried about you. I hope everything's ok.

Time to check out the results! 8-)

Just earlier today, I was worried he was dead in some Tijuana flophouse, felled by hookers and blow, so I googled him, and he'd made some commits on github the previous day. There really is no privacy anymore. /s

“Throughout history, poverty is the normal condition of man. Advances which permit this norm to be exceeded — here and there, now and then — are the work of an extremely small minority, frequently despised, often condemned, and almost always opposed by all right-thinking people. Whenever this tiny minority is kept from creating, or (as sometimes happens) is driven out of a society, the people then slip back into abject poverty. This is known as "bad luck.”

So, that's what you've been doing, eh Arthur?

I was hitting the bottle. :-/

Thanks for the work Matt. I Hope everything is fine.

With no succes, I tried in 2005, 2009, 2014.
I finished and submitted a working entry only this year.
So, well, even if I'm happy with that, I hope I'll be better next time.

I wish the same for you all too !

Playing the entries was also a cool part of the contest :-D

I've been speedhacking and tins-is-not-speedhacking since 2001 - first time I got top marks.

That's even more surprising considering I was the competition organiser half the time :)

Congratulations to all who tried, submitted and especially to those who won. Great year! I'm super excited to place in the "Best Idea" category after experimenting with A5 on a Mac environment for the first time! I need to work on my execution skills. 8-)

For pure randomness, here's a viewable folder I opened up in drive to track time and take scratch notes. Enjoy!

Wish I had been able to play more of the entries. Shiznit just didn't work for me. :/

Couldn't get teacher or human cpu to compile and couldn't get chip farm to run.

teacher fails with :

error: expected identifier or '(' before 'char'
     LandFont * small;

on line 23 of game.h :

    LandFont * small;

Woohoo, congratulations to all involved. I enjoyed all of the entries, even the incomplete ones.

One thing I mentioned on the IRC, is that if people want more of these competitions (and to avoid infringing on our dear leader's busy schedule) we could always have an Allegro 'team' for LudumDare. LudumDare provides the most of the boring bits including blogs etc, and we'd just treat it as another SpeedHack, perhaps replacing one of the SpeedHack rules with the pathetic excuse LudumDare calls a 'theme' and restricting ourselves to use Allegro.

I won't be participating this weekend for sure, but if anybody wants to do it next time (or just do it without me) I'd be interested in trying it.

Maybe we could use a set of (curated) rules from the spinner.

If there is interest I could host another TINS later in the year. The website is having problems though, I'd have to fix that one of these days.

I hope we do more! I couldn't participate in this one, I was out driving across the states for work.

Does LudumDare allow teams? We could just all enter as a big team and do a Monday project entry :)

That'd actually be pretty neat! I've never collaborated with any of you before. That might be really fun to coordinate all of us all over the world on a game.

It would be fun to do a group project even if it wasn't part of a competition.

We could implement same rule system speedhack has but we wouldn't be competing against each other and make it longer like over a week or up to three weeks.

That way we actually get a finished game in a short time and it doesn't get in a abandoned unfinished state (it would be done even if it isn't done 8-)).

So that's how it's done!
