Got my copy yesterday and am thoroughly enjoying it. Only made it through the first two puzzles. This game is harder than it looks!

Okay, it is proven: The French mail still hates us Germans.^^

Now the game has made it to the US while I am still waiting. XD

I wait since 10 day a parcel from Germany. I think that there is really a big problem between the German and French post offices.

In any case it is funny to see the games arriving one after the other.

Distributions of the games make it as it:
USA 7 games
France 6 games (2 for people who helped me to make the game and of course my game the number 01/20 ;))
Germany 4 games (2 for people who helped me to make the game)
United Kingdom 2 games
Sweden 1 game

I have a feeling that the French post office treat mail like wine. When you store it in a cellar for a year or two it becomes much better.

Fortunately that it is the game which I sent and not one kilo of "foie gras" or a dozen snails :roll:

I can't imagine how that would smell!
Actually... when I was a lot younger and didn't know better... I went fishing one last time before it got too cold in Alaska. I used to use baby shrimp as bait (see where this is leading).
My wife and I caught plenty of fish and then put our tackle boxes in the basement for winter storage.
The next spring, we go down stairs to grab our stuff so we can go fishing again. My wife had left her baby shrimp in the tackle box. It 'liquified' into something very very foul. Nearly one of the worst things I've ever smelled. We tossed out the tackle box and bought everything new. It was disgusting!

there's my gross and disgusting story for the day. lol

I figure this is a longshot, but I thought I'd ask anyway. If by any chance one of the winners wants to sell theirs please let me know.

YAY! I got mine today as well! Mine is Number 9.

Even though we live in the same state, it took two extra days for mine to arrive.

But I got it! :lust: #15. I can't believe you were 6 better than me, however. :P

My box got a bit wrinkled in the post, but it's all good!

Thanks again, JP, for doing us Lynx fans such a wonderful thing! You, sir, are a class act!

Cheers,
Smeg

(Say, any chance I could get you to PM me the template for the #15 box, so I can reprint one?)

I thought I was the first one that finished and turned in my results. So I was thinking I was getting a higher number. LOL But it doesn't matter really. it is one of one 20 carts that were released! And, I actually did something to win it... so that means a lot to me (I never win anything!)

I think that numbers 1 to 5 were reserved as said Rygar (#1 to him, 2 to 5 to people who helped him).
So being #9, you are the fourth to answer ;)

Fadest... you are correct. I forgot about that part.
Like I mentioned though, just having one (I could care less of the number) is what is important to me! I like the little boards on the cart that tell you your individual numbers! Pretty darn cool!

So... what's next? We have the Zaku release this Sat. After that... I think we are going to run a bit dry for a while.
:(

I've been so tuned into pinball lately, that I'm thinkking it would be awesome to have another pinball game for the Lynx.
Could you imagine a Gorgar remake on the Lynx? Or a Black Knight remake?

Pretty cool.

I think the lynx dont get dry the next yeasrs :)

I plan to do one release per year

"Space Ark" is my next title, but to small for an own release - i do it on a cartridge with an other one. Iam in the last steps of the Alpha-phase.
if you look in the in development thread you find other projects i work on.
This year i released my hello world "Lynxopoly". I think next year its really sure that i finish the next game.

And I am glad to be a part of that. :)
Eric, believe me, matashen is quite ambitous, you better believe that you will be seeing at least one Lynx-game per year from him. And other homebrewers are not lazy either.

That said I am beginning to fear that my copy of Bitchy may have been lost in the mail...or that the postman (not Kevin Costner) was careless and put it in front of the door where it was stolen.

I still have not lost all hope though. :)

No, Iīm afraid not. I went to the post office and asked if there was anything for me (sometimes they forget to give you a note when you are not at home when they try to deliver), but nothing. Iīll PM you. :)
