Well, another WAYWO has been and gone, and because I volunteered I get to make the new starter thread. I thought I'd do a news report style round up instead of the usual default images.
It's been a thread with its ups and downs, like all of them. The main flamewar was "I'm making an Engine" "Make a game you cunt" "Fuck you", with some threat of the "Git vs Svn" looming in the East. Thankfully the latter failed to materialise, dealt with maturity and box ratings by the surprisingly grown up members of the forum!
The thread was characterised in the later stages by something of a lack of the normally ubiquitous null, who finished work on his grapher to go and create a monstrosity of a website. Unfortunately for all of us who desperately wanted something he wasn't good at, it's quite good now.
The most popular project was minecraft clones, although there have been a fair few geometry wars inspired shooters in the later stages.
The Man of the Thread award (I'm making the OP, I'm giving the award) goes to Xerios3 for his seriously impressive 3D RTS. I think we all look forward to seeing it develop: it would be good to start to see a few more units :D. An honourable mention must of course go to null with his grapher, but Addendum Beta Subsection 3.2 states that the "Man of the Thread" award can't go to null. Sorry! r4nk has also posted a wide range of pretty damn cool projects, and his sense of humour has also contributed to the thread! I've also enjoyed seeing Parakons groovy little RPG grow: it's certainly flowered throughout this thread.
Well done to everyone who made it to the highlights, which is most people who made a picture! It's been great seeing what the community has acheived, and I hope you all keep it up. To a content filled, hate free thread! Cheers!
And now for the highlights:
OH SHIT THIS WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE PAGE KING SORRY GUYS I'VE LET YOU ALL DOWN HOW CAN YOU EVER FORGIVE (sorry for nicking the joke, r4nk: it was too good an opportunity to miss!)
