RPGDX is currently discussing the possibility of holding a new RPG contest, something they haven’t done in well over a year. You can find the details in this thread. If you’re not already a member of RPGDX, I encourage you to join in. It’s quite a neat little community. If you can’t program, you might find a programmer looking to take on a writer.
I’ve been doing phenomenal work on my RPG engine this week. In fact, this year I’ve gotten more done on the engine than I did in all of last year. It’s amazing. I wanted to make a big post this weekend talking about it, but I’m not ready just yet. Watch this space, though.
