The competition will now end on the 30th of April.
Sorry, I stated I would send an entry and I had theorically plenty of time for my project, but real life interfered the (very) hard way. When I finally decided a game to remix RetroMadrid focused all my attention for two weeks even though this year I was only assisting as a mere visitor. Right after that there were two consecutives deaths in the family in less than a week, both long awaited after long exhausting terminal phases, but no less devastating anyway. When It was all over, there was the affair with a rather obscure bug in the AMOS compiler wich prevented the compiled version of my christmas non-entry game to work on 68000 based Amigas. Thanks to the help of the people at the AMOS Factory a workaround was found (now you can find version 1.00 at its page). When I took a breath, deadline was just a few days ahead.

Now thanks to this extension my project still goes on and an extra month will be more than enough (I hope!!! ^_^'). By the way, It's going to be yet another text adventure (it's just my favourite genre!), so sorry for those of you who donĀ“t like that kind of games, I really hope there will be more entries closer to your tastes!

I received some nice feedback from my last christmas adventure in the form of several bug reports (which were much appreciated!) but all of them came from non native english speakers. I would just like to know how terribly wrong my english actually sounds to all of you so I can have a glimpse of how much effort I should invest in a proper proofreading this time. I'm thinking of fooling the corporate english teacher at my job into making a proofreading of my adv as an exercise for his class, so I could simultaneously have some fun with my fellows at job, proofread the thing, and make some proselitism of retrogaming, text-adventuring, and the Amiga itself all at the same time . But first of all I need some honest opinions about how badly it was done from anyone who played it (native english speakers preferably), I mean just bad? horribly bad? unacceptably bad? you know...
