Wow, as promised we (Izard and I) went to Evoke 2 days ago, and as also promised we made an entry for the 64k competition. And we actually won that competition :) Woei! We didn't quite expect that, since we had to do quite some work (and haxxoring) at the partyplace. The submission deadline for our compo was at 19:00, and we arrived around 12:00. But we delivered our final compo entry at around 21:30, a bit too late, but just in time for the start of the competition which started at 22:00.
Anyway, it was our first visit to an international party. And it was quite fun. Lots of people and lots of competitions. Here are some screenies from our entry, called "Antiphore":
Anyway, we did learn something this time I believe. Style is quite important ;) We focused more on style than on technology this time. And apparently that paid off. So that's something we're going to take to our next production.

There are only 2 days left before Evoke starts (it actually already starts friday, but we're going there on saturday) and we still have lots of stuff to do. The past week I did some work on some new stuff/tech we needed for our 64k, things like animated cables, unlit geometry and overlay support, but for now everything is done (well, ehm "good enough" is a better description) on the tech side. Izard is almost finished with the soundtrack, and he's already working on a (huge) scene. And since the tech stuff is kind of finished enough, I think I'm going to help out with some texture work and overlays. And possibly some scenes too.
Anyway, 1 week for a complete demo is a bit short :) But we're definitely releasing something at Evoke, no matter how unfinished and crappy it will be :-)
PS. I transitioned to using Trac for my issue management. I was using Mantis before, but Trac just feels a lot better and is more complete (with an integrated wiki and source browser).
