Session 9 Announcement

You know you want to...

Session 9 will start this coming Monday.  Owen Butler, last session's top vote getter has provided a very interesting theme.  Should mix things up a bit.

Start Date : February 2nd, 2009
End Date : February 16th, 2009

Theme : Friendly Units.  The game's playing field must contain friendly elements that you must not shoot or you must protect.

I think this theme promises some interesting games.  The classic example that comes to mind is Defender, or Puppygames' Alien Flux (no longer available I think), an arena shooter take on the protection theme.  Even the recent Gravitron 2 has fuel depots that are destructible.

I'm sure others can help with more (and better) examples, my brain seems to have turned off Smiley  Thanks to Owen Butler for the theme, which I have paraphrased a bit.

Have a nice trip, though Smiley

Tricky theme! It'll be a nice chance to build on what I did for Session 08 at any rate.

Re: Session 9 Announcement

We just had an entry today. And I -want- to enter, but won't actually announce anything until I am sure.

If you can finish your entry I'd say you still can.
