DR0ID of GD posted a new diary entry: Pyweek 31 - postmorten on the speech to text experience.

The result was expected, but still frustrating

We expected to have some DNW due to our dependencies. We never had that many dependencies in a pyweek before. Our
experience told us, this will be trouble. And yes, it was trouble apparently. The strange thing is, that we didn't
hear about it. No one except two persons asked for help.

Thanks so much to everyone for rating and playing our game! Thanks to the highscore server that tizilogic developed, we were able to see the highscore list update over the course of the judging period as people started playing it, which was quite fun to see.

We are extremely sorry that we couldn't add more upgrades, moves and information. We had...

Tee of Halt! posted a new diary entry: Halt!: Postmortem.

Thanks to everyone who played my game! I appreciate all your comments.

PyTM30 of The War on Drugs posted a new diary entry: I didn't come last!.

The point is that you can't search everyone but you have to click multiple times to complete a search at which point they are either let go or sent to jail. At the end you're presented with some stats about how you did. I guess making a game that isn't...

pushfoo of Cat Burglar posted a new diary entry: Post-mortem: How We Shipped After Everything Went Wrong.

tl;drWhat went wrong?

  1. Our last-choice theme was chosen
  2. We ran into underlying issues with the framework
  3. My teammate had to drop from the competition after the second day
How did I address it?

  1. Drastically reducing scope
  2. Repurposing what we had already built to fit a different and much simpler gameplay loop
  3. Reduce the story to fit new...
