I plan on participating, but I really can't start until march, so it's great that the deadline is so far in advance.

I plan to participate as well, but I am very busy trying not to fail school at the moment... and I also don't like killing things so I need to work out a good and friendly concept to apply to it first haha. Maybe I can do it in my spring break in three weeks.

I'm checking in on this Challenge.  Anyone partaking?  If only one person makes the skin by the end of this month, they get the 100 dollars by default. ;)  I've more than half-done making an actuallly playable platformer that can be skinned but I might not find the energy and time to finish it if no ones interrested in participating. :(

Awesome news.  Thanks Atnas.  It promises to be a nice looking skin judging by your website.  Can't wait to see.

I'd love to have go at this, but i can't run .exe files (due to being on a mac), so i would have no way of looking at them in game.

If you could post a load  of screenshots that would be handy so i can see where everything goes..

Or any chance of a mac port?

Hi Feron,

Here's a video recording in a couple of formats.  I hope this will be enough.

Cheching back in.  Reminding people the proposed deadline is tomorrow.  Will anyone be finished by then or do we have to postpone the deadline a bit?  I'l check back tomorrow.

Wouldn't mind another week, but that might be a bit selfish because I was ill and family was visiting. I guess if you get no entries you should postpone it, but people who finish things on time should be rewarded.

If no one else submits a finished work, then I guess the only sensable thing is to either agree on a later deadline, or simple give the first one who submits the prize, which in a bad online community would produce many "asweome scribble game skins"!  ;)  I'll check back in tomorrow and see if anyone else submits or agrees to an extension.  Anyone else working on something for this?
