why settle for beating cactus and rohrer when you can beat miyamoto and romero?
I dunno, I would prefer to be in the same league as cactus rather than Romero.
Also, I don't think he will get the main prize because winning is not a function of game's popularity. Games are judged by humans who take stuff like who needs money more into account. Don't deny the guy his right to participate in a cool event.
This is stupid. Why Notch? Because he was open about how much he has made? I'm guessing many of the more successful indies entering their games are pretty well off and don't need money that much. If we're to judge the game by needs of their developers, I think americans shouldn't be allowed to enter, because $20k doesn't mean that much to them while for me here in Poland it's equal to 2 years salary.
I love how you guys say what Notch should
do in this and other threads. He should
promote indie other games, he should
link to this community, he should
use the money he has for the good of indie games, blah blah.
You behave like he owes a great deal to you and this community, like it wasn't his own hard work that made him successful. No guys. He can do whatever he wants and he owes you fuck all. If he decides to spend his money on building a giant golden penis to remind him of how awesome he is, it's his right to do so.
