So we've had themes in the past, which I think are a great idea. Interestingly though, so far, it sounds like most people already know what they're going to be working on, regardless of what the chosen theme is.
Marcus is working on elacc.
Brett is working on something from a couple competitions ago.
Swatacular is (I'm putting words in his mouth here) probably working on Future Game.
I was seriously contemplating using it as a way to push me to get a game-from-scratch and UI tutorials added to the website, as well as get my 2nd edition completed.
We're short on time, and probably don't have a ton of time to select a theme in the normal way. Do we really need a theme?
If anybody says they'd like a theme, we'll put one together fast. Otherwise, maybe we say this is an Open Theme competition this time around?
