It's been a while since our last blog post. With the summer nearly upon us, we thought we'd best get our act together and start posting some content! We should have a steady stream of content coming your way from now until Convention Weekend in September.
In today's post, we want to congratulate all of our Canadian designers who submitted 29 designs for the 2012 CGDA competition. We know we might sound like a broken record on with respect to the quality of submissions improving with every passing year, but once again this statement rang true. We had several publishable games that were submitted this year. These include all those who made the semi-finals cut, as well as several others who didn't make the Top 8 cut. Canada truly had some game design talent and I'm confident that we'll see that talent being recognized more and more over the next few years.
Without any more ado, here are the 8 semi-finalists who will be providing prototypes for playtesting. Congrats and best of luck in the next round!
