I'm very pissed off after reading this jojo post, before I thought he was a sore loser, now I just think he is an asshole.

Also very cheeky of him to be calling for originality when he used characters and ideas ripped off from a movie without owning a license for it!!!!

this person is really an egomaniac with little to NO talent.

Well, I was a bit salty to Jojo but there is something he's not sharing with his fans. I think his reaction comes from competitiveness. Competition is destructive in that there's a "verdict".

"There can only be 1!" *cough* - bullshit.

Votes depend on so many things. It's better to think, if you made a game that is fun to play and you had fun making it, that's what really matters. Of course you have to test and do things over, and that can be a very not fun thing...

Probably singing to the choir at this point, but I'm just saying.

Well, JoJo, I won't say much worse than I what I would say to Ron Gilbert, so here's the polite version: The bobblehead style just doesn't appeal to me, at all.
That's what I always thought when I saw JoJos games. This big head style with always the same lobotomized facial expressions looks so weird.

Congratulations to the winners of this contest.

He should answer why his graphics spammed to Commodore Amiga and Amiga Graphics on Facebook have the palette 100% finished when he starts tracing. Absolutely no artist does that.

Then he can accuse others of cheating, or not having talent.

I asked him on Facebook once, got an answer like "Never mind, it's just graphics!" and I've ignored him since. Others can give 100 likes.
Yeah, I always thought,.. look at that,.. he already have decided the palette and in those unnatural positions.

Good question.

Is anyone interested in taking the lead and organizing all this? (rules definition, deadline definition, budget/price management, registrations, etc.)

It should also be ensured that enough people want to participate to a new game development contest.

Personally, as last time, I am available as a jury's member.

I'm happy to run it but I'm not taking part.

If people are happy with this then I'll devise some rules etc for consideration.

There is this thread : EAB Game Competition - Discussion related to possible next one.
I also remember a post from mcgeezer where he was saying he was interested in handling next competition (but I don't find it back).
