You say! BTW, does an answer to a PM with multiple recepients go BACK to all recepients, too? I think I'm screwing up here.

You think that's embarrassing? Try hitting the "enter" key instead of the "shift" key while trying to put that capital T in "Tier" and the next thing you know, you've sent a PM to only half the people you meant to and now you have to wait an entire hour to send it to the rest!

I can never show my face in public again!  :-[

Oh noes! Now everyone can see that the bake sale isn't a flawless, inspiring, awesome organization! We're going to lose our cachet of cool. People will no longer look up to us as the titans of fashion and industry that we ought to be.  ;)

What? Hey! I'm trick or treating, baby! Why limit it to just one night when you can go beg for candy (and not have to comb your hair) for the entire month of October? I'm a visionary!

Ponch, using PMs for this with a 6 per hour limit was a bad idea :p

Truly. There has to be an easier way to do this than that. Do you have a better suggestion?

I wonder if Tzachs could set up a small, private forum for the baker's dozen over at Parking Goat where we can hash this sort of stuff out more efficiently? He's one of the bakers and he has his own forums. That might be the solution to our problem.

Hey everyone!  I've recently offered to help out with the promotion and distribution of this bake sale, and I was officially accepted by the gang I thought I'd pop in to say hi.  I'm quite excited about this whole thing.

And Ponch - I've already set up some forum space, if you'd like to use it.  Check your PMs.

Dave: I read your offer and just PM'd the bakers dozen about your suggestion. I have to run a few errands now but I'll be back this evening.  :)

Woah, woah, woah, thanks, everyone! I'm really happy and glad that you liked my idea and that you want it in the bake sale! However, this raises the following problem: this will definitely not be a PG-13 game, especially because of... well... you know, violence and satanism and all that good stuff that made '90s shooters so fun to play!

If this isn't a problem, then it seems...

Hell is coming to the bake sale!

Shotgun, check. Zombies, check. Pixel blood, check... INSTANT CLASSIC!

I wouldn't mind the non-PG, by the way. I worried a lot about that too. Seems the forums are mature in that respect, and you have to be a certain age to use PayPal anyway. Chances are good that most buyers have seen worse than a dismembered "Z" (even a capital one).

[edit]
Say, where do you get those sound effects?

Hey, thanks, Ghost! I guess you're right, maybe I'm worrying too much.

The sound effects I made using a chiptune VST called "magical8bitplug" in Fruity Loops - really simple to use and sounds great. For the zombie growl, I just put in a phaser over one of those chiptune synths. The sound effects seem to be gathering quite a following, glad you like 'em ;D

It's like sitting in front of a 086 machine again! Now if someone comes up with a true text game, we have almost any odd genres covered. Er, not really, but you know what I mean. Diversity and such. And shotguns, naturally.

Any chance for a rocket launcher?

Quick! Someone needs to come up with an old school pen and paper (and dice) game for the bake sale. We're going super old school this time!  :D

So, is it still possible for people to climb on board with this? I'm sure I've got all kinds of ideas just leaking out of various orifices.
