Dobbs Challenge: The Final Hours...

June 12, 2008

Friday the 13th is famously unlucky for some, but make sure it's not unlucky for you by submitting your entry for the Dobbs Challenge by the end of today, to ensure you've got your chance at the remaining $9,000 in prizes we have to offer!

If you've been keeping up with this blog you might think that we've been banging on about the deadline a bit, but we just don't anyone to miss out at the chance of getting their game looked at by our judges. So lets state it once again, as clearly as possible -- you have to submit your game to us by 11:59 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (check the world clock if you're not sure what time that is for you).

If you have any problems submitting your game, please let us know as soon as possible, so that we can make sure your game is judged. We haven't had any problems yet recieving your games (though a few of you have recieved unusual error messages) so please let us know if that happens. We'll begin to announce winners as soon as next week, so time is of the essence! (We'll also be putting up all of the entrants for people to see, too!)

And there's no better time than now to get involved in the Dobbs Challenge forums! There are many new posters announcing their entries, so why not head along and announce yours? Discuss tips and tricks you learned across the contest -- after all, it's too late for anyone to "steal" your ideas!

 Once again, we wish all of our entrants the best of luck in the competition -- particularly those of you who are still scrabbling to get finished!
