This appears to be one of the weaker competitions, inadvertedly annoucing a hiatus from my side, which happened for other reasons. Nevertheless, it's sad we couldn't go out with a bang. Still, it could be to the somewhat uninspired competition theme that year. Nevertheless, the competition again featured another excellent entry by Landeel (third victory in a row), albeit not inspired as his earlier one, a gameplay-mechanics marvel Dominionoes, and an unfinished superb looking platformer Nomera. All in all, stuff worth being checked out.
