We're going to have a week of Siminar news posts I think. I'm working very heavily on the new layout at the moment so I don't have any new EX updates to post (except enclosures, bank and dino pages are almost done! Yesssssssssss!), and I'd really like to help Siminar out!
So that contest we had earlier was for a Siminar feature, which you can see here:
Mark your calendars! Siminar is just around the corner!
Siminar is the only conference on the web dedicated to the browser-based simulation game industry. After an incredibly successful first year, we’re back for another packed weekend!
Siminar is a two-day conference where owners, programmers, artists, aspiring owners, players, and anyone else interested in sim games come together to share knowledge and talk about our industry. It is a fantastic opportunity to meet players from across different sims, speak to people who have experience in the field and get a feel for how sims are created and managed. Siminar's goal is to bring together the sim game community and better the quality of sim games as a whole by learning from and supporting each other.
We’re happy to announce our 2011 Presentations:
