tired and exhilarated  
so as some of you know i just spent a loooong weekend (actually week) which culminated in last night being a exhilarating race against time. Besides the various other projects and contract/work I have about a month (technically a month and a half or so) me and my good buddy DrMikey (the guy I teamed up with to make the flash game entry we won last year) realized that Google was doing the Android Developer Contest this year. So even though we were about a month and a half behind everyone who has going to be submitting to the contest (it was announced end of May and we didnt hear about it till mid July) we decided to to submit a game. So last night was down to the wire for me as I rushed to complete the game as much as I could. What came out is somewhat satisfactory... I originally wanted to add another dimension to the product (a social aspect) which I ended up not being to put in. But that aside, it came out well. A kind of a cross between a virtual pet game, a augmented reality virtual scavenging game, and puzzle game it is somewhat akin to the the flash game DrM and I did last year (with a story and everything). So anyways the sumbission site closed at 3am EST last night and i submitted it at 2am. :) the last day hours has felt like that zone that every Hollywood Hacker movie attempts to show when the hacker kid is intently hacking away. *grins*

so anyways, its done. For those who have Android phones, onc ethe ADC2 client scoring app is available, the game is called FaerieStone. Take a look.

oh, and yes, I will be releasing a FaerieStone 2 which will have the social aspect in it (goddamnit *grins*) but thats not for a little bit...

Yay! I'm so happy that you were able to finish and submit! My fingers are crossed for you and I will say a few prayers to the all-holy Coop napkin. :)
