Very cool!  It looks terrific and I really like the fact that it opens up new possibilities for exploration games. 

Ohh!  That's pretty cool!  I hope you get someone to do a flashy demo.  I'm not much of an artist myself, so...  Can't help you unfortunately.

The installer works well, all the files are installed on my computer.  But the exe won't launch the game, double clicking it crashes with the message "unexpected error. Quitting".  I haven't tried it the right-click on the gdp file, but I'm sure it won't work without SGDK1.  gdp file is not a recognized file extension on my computer.

I tried the installer but I can't get the game to play.  It keeps saying "unexpected error. Quitting".  Anybody else gets this message?  I don't have SGDK1, so I was hoping to be able to play the game without installing it. :)

Hi Chris!  It's good to hear from you.  I'm glad to see you're doing well.  Good luck with your degree. :)

I will send you a private message.

Well, I'm definitely no expert on the subject.  I think it depends who you are targeting with the book.

For someone who already played a bit with SGDK2 and wants to push to the next level or wants to implement some of the features you explain in the book, I think that 48$ is a totally acceptable price.

For complete newcomers who want to get started on SGDK2, I have the feeling 48$ is a bit much.  All the way up to 30$, I would have no problem paying that much to try something out.  Over than that, it seems to me that it may make the book a little less accessible.

Of course there is the fact that it's 260 pages with color and like I said, it's pure gold when you want to develop the features described in the book, which are common and very useful.

But, like I said, I have no idea what I talking about...  This is purely based on feeling, so I wouldn't put to much credit in that.
I'm aware that going from 48$ to 30$ is quite a price drop, it might not even be possible.

Personally, I'm also taking into account the exchange rate.  From USD to CAN, it raises the price quite a bit these times.  It used to be a 1-to-1 exchange, but since the oil price drop the CAN dropped quite a bit.  Today, the CAN stands at 1.34$ for 1 USD.  Which means I would pay 65$ for a 48$ book, which is a little painful.  But it's not a factor in the US of course...

Hum, I guess the site was down for maintenance.  I have no problem reaching it right now (8:00 PM eastern time zone).  Do you have an idea of how much the book will be sold?  I definitely want a copy. :)

Wow!  I downloaded the pdf and went through it very fast.  I think this book is an incredible tool, it would have been so useful to make Lok: Revival.  I like the fact that you give examples of very specific but common game features: it's pure gold.  Unfortunately, I don't have time to read all of it right now, so I can't provide very specific feedback.  By the way, thanks a lot for mentioning my game. :)

Hey, I tried the game again and I completed the last level (got to the "tada"), but I didn't see any level code...  Where is it supposed to appear?

Wow, this game gets hard pretty quickly.  I got to the fourth or fifth level maybe?  Where you have to dig a whole bunch of layers to get the coins.  I like it! :)  I don't know how contributions could work since I don't have much time to contribute anyway.  :(  How many levels did you make?

I'd like to try the games but I can't find any download link on the projects pages...  Am I missing something?  I'm not familiar with the windows marketplace.
