First off, thanks Gord for running it this week, was fun.
Thanks to my fellow competitors for their wonderful entries...
And thanks TheCatamites for not only your vote, but comments...you too DataFlashsabot.
That aside, a vote. I wouldn't vote for my own (for many logistical reasons)...and in my opinion, it really does come down to Sea Sorrow or Monster in the Sea (not discounting other entries...). Sea Sorrow was fantastic in so far as a minimalized aesthetic, fantastic music, etc...but while it started off strong, the pixel hunt and the somewhat rushed like ending kind of soured the rest of the experience a smidge. But only a smidge.
Monster in the Sea on the other hand has a bit of humour, a bit of gameplay, and two ways of getting an ending.
Again, don't get me wrong, A Squid With a View and Cutoff were great in and of themselves, especially for hour games.
My vote though? I'll go with Monster in the Sea. Only by a moustache hair though, since Sea Sorrow was great from an atmosphere perspective.
Oh, small plug...I'll upload a 'deluxe edition' of The Creature From Beneath The Sea tomorrow...some minor revisions and tweaks I didn't have time in the hour to do...nothing revolutionary...things like a title screen, ending(s) screens...more 'options'/interactivity that matters...etc.
