I have decided to enter 4E5 not because I think I will win but because it inspired a pretty cool idea which I think perfectly encompasses this years 4 elements. Those elements are: Emotion, Emblem, Europe, and Economy. More detail can be found here
I noticed many people are scared to share their ideas because of fear of theft. However intellectual Property (IP) is usually protected by the 'who has proof they did it first' rule, so a game dev blog that I do not have complete control over is ideal for my needs.
First, I need someplace to record my thoughts and ideas in a coherent fashion. Second, I wish to publicize my ideas in order to get criticism and feedback on my development practices, plot progression, dialog, etc., etc. Third, the ability to view the progression of my game in a neat visual format that I can laugh about years-to-come. And finally, fourth: Use this as a point of reference as proof of originality for my ideas should I ever get into a 'rights' conflict concerning code or IP.
I have already come up with my concept, title, and game play style, and will probably use this blog as a semi-design document. Many more posts to come. ^.^
