All Quiet on the Western Front

Despite the vague reference to the novel of the same name, the title is also a reference to the state of the current Game Chef competition.

Game Chef 2009 started in last September, and it had four deadlines: 7 days, 14 days, 30 days and one year. The three first deadlines have passed long ago and everyone seems to have forgotten the whole competition already. Which is a shame, because the Game Chef website doesn’t even list the games finished for the 30 days deadline.

My Game Chef entry, The Knights of the Lily, has not had any progress after it’s beta version either. I haven’t actually even thought about it in a past few months, but that might prove to be actually a good thing. When I get back to writing, I might have some new ideas and a better vision on what I want the game to accomplish.

Like many of my fellow ‘Chefs, I’ve decided that I’ll continue blogging despite the hiatus on the Game Chef competition.  I think I’ll mostly ramble about game design but maybe also about something completely different.
