    I was considering entering Adlib. What was the process like? Any advice you would give? Have you entered before?

    Good luck!

    I'm not entering this year (no new game ) but I did enter the 2008 comp. My advice is: go for it! If you can make it to GDC in the event that you're a finalist, it's an opportunity that's not to be turned down.

    Of course, getting into the finals is by no means guaranteed, but you have to be in it to win it.

    I think that Mystic Mine is innovative and fun enough to get to the finals there.

    Good luck Koen!

    Good luck dewitters and cliffski!

    We're definitely entering IGF Mobile with RocketFuse, but the project we started for IGF China still isn't close-to-nearly-halfway-done as the regular IGF deadline closes in. I don't think we'll be making an appearance this year. =)

    My girls are getting a little long in the tooth, but after upgrading the art significantly, I figured I'd try one more time. (third attempt) At least last year, sales of the game from being listed as an entrant just paid for the fee!

    I entered Lylian in last week. Far from complete, but will be interesting to see how buried it gets among the other 300+ entries.

    Remind me next time to start my game title with the letter A

    Default I've entered

    I got my game Threads of Reality in.

    This is my first time submitting to IGF. I'm super nervous.

    @Cliffski -- I've been following your blog for a few months, it's been really great to kind follow someone else working independently towards IGF... albeit a little intimidating. GSB looks really neat.

    Now... I am pooped. Good luck everyone!
