Nice. Very nice.

We all expect to hear news from Frederick really soon!

At least, we were told we'd receive the news in Feb.

I wonder if - if het gets the contract - he will be having a budget worthy of making the game.

And if he will keep twinsens gameplay based on the original, perhaps enhanced, but similair.

Well it has been a while since I had mail contact with him (don't have his current e-mail actually). Would be nice to have a talk. Are you talking about the messageboard on the website, where the week is hosted? (haven't seen a thread there about it on the forum).

Suppose I would win, would someone really ship a copy or LBA1/LBA2 all the way to Israel?

By the way, what's with the score in the LBA2 review?
In the story section you just told the story but you gave it just an 80.
And in the gameplay section you pretty much say "It's just like LBA1 + strafing", but the score is lower than the score you gave in the LBA1 review?
Is that the problem? That it's the same?

That's a pretty bad review, mate. Did the guys at the Adventure-Eu check it before publishing??

I'm not saying it's bad because I disagree on what scores you gave to LBA2.

I say it's awful, because you gave scores without even justifying them!

You summarized the plot and the gameplay without giving any opinions.

Is that the format for every Adventure-Eu review? Because if it is, it sucks, I can tell you right now.

Nope, it's there.

A great way to end the LBA week.

I expect that we shall receive more good news on LBA3 in the near future.
