I'm shooting to enter the game into the 2006 Independent Games Festival ( http://www.igf.com ), the deadline for the initial round is September 6, 2005...and I guess the game needs to have completed gameplay to be considered. This means an insane amount of work for me in the next 2 months...but I'm up for it :-)
If the game gets accepted as a finalist (*crosses fingers*) I can submit another version before January 16, 2006 for the Game Developers Conference in San Jose :-) Hopefully I'll have the game completly finished by then.
I'll post updates every few days with my progress. I'm hoping to detail most of the development process in this journal.
