I have to say, this is just really meaningful. I wanted to see what we could do with the scene, as I love it and have for a long time. So I kicked together some cash and an idea and a cast of characters to Judge (Davee, Hellcat, Lampworker and Wololo) and everyone pitched in and we got past the splash screen understanding eventually and people got what a compo is about: scene together-ness. We will always run these homebrew programs with that splash screen and remember spring-summer (well here in North america that's what season it is) but well all around the world remember what we were up to at that time... and it's so awesome.
This competition really pleased me, there is plenty of life left in this scene. The psp is a perfect candidate to become a successful POST COMMERCIAL platform. Hitch up your boots folks, because I feel a crazy cool scene coming on. And yeah I'll buy a PS Vita the moment I can, but, I'll always love my psps. Yes I really do have that many, Tipi wasn't lying. ;p
Thanks to ALL OF YOU for all of the nice things you said! And for all the scene togetherness, on so many sites.... this is just rad!
/me hears whispers of people wanting a 2nd annual... could it be? hehe if it did happen I learned a lot this year. : ) <-- don't say I said that, I won't be quoted on it.
Btw, I find it a decent time to announce a site that isn't ready yet but is coming (when I find someone to make a decent page for me, so I can edit html for simple text etc but I code I don't do graphics or GOOD html design haha) that is basically just my psp/ps2/ps3/vita/ps4/ps suite/psx etc related page that will have my random ponderings and probably i'll mirror the compo rar, and whatever. I needed a nice short easy to remember domain so yeah, visit me when I am up : ) [The site is NOT up yet. ] It is a sweet domain name for me I think; the whole pseudo-pun and all. So, announced here though not yet up is my personal page http://www.psnpt.com
: ) It might have something interesting on it sometime. And if there were a second competition... IF... it'd be announced at the same time on http://www.wololo.net/talk
and my site at the same as Wololo is the best. Though I bet he might not want the stress haha and I don't know if his wife would dig a 2nd competition.
