Up to 21 games what what! This jam single handedly increased the number of Arduboy games software by nearly 10%!

But some aren’t very useful :wink:

Let’s be honest, a lot of the other games weren’t very useful either. :joy:

Not-A-Game Jam ending soon!

I think having the emulator to quickly play all the games inside the browser really has made this jam a lot more fun and interactive. What do you think?

Woohoo, I’m useless! Thanks for running the contest, it was really fun, motivating and educational.

Its a badge of honour you should wear with pride!

@Prototype is both ‘useless’ and ‘useful’ which surely cancels out to be ‘use’.

@bateske when will the Galaga MicroArcades be in stock?

I added (almost) all the entries to my repo http://arduboy.ried.cl :slight_smile:

I know few are not “that great” but I think if I was a new Arduboy user, I would have a lot of fun just testing random stuff. It was actually why I made the repository.

Yo just letting everyone know I just finished up holiday shipping, I’ve got customer service to finish up through Christmas, I’ll send the prizes after the holidays. I’ll make another post when I think I’ve sent everything, but I’m sorry I can already guess I’ll miss someone so once I do that you can let me know whether you got it or not.

Thanks again everyone!

So… since I was moved to 2nd place, because:

I have 2 arcades + the extra from Starwars animation :star_struck::star_struck:

I currently have Pac-Man and the tetris microcard. I am happy with any 3 ones for my small post-Xmas prize Señor @bateske.
