Well done to all the teams involved. Special congrats to Rule of Thumb!

Just a thought… long hours seems to almost be encouraged by the competition. Surely we shouldn’t be teaching hopeful developers that working massive amounts of overtime is industry standard – even if it is for certain companies. If it could be imposed, a 40 hour week should be set as the maximum. It should be about who can make the best game within normal limits, not who can stay on the computer for the longest. Then again, just look at who sponsors the competition…

I haven’t been involved with the competition, so perhaps someone experienced with it could comment.
