That wasn't until shortly after Nocturne's discussion about the originally intended theme.
Bahaha you blasted two games that actually used the correct theme.
When voting did you not keep in mind that the objective of the competition was to use the word "LIVE" as in live event....
And not live as in living... lol
You seem to have been misinformed, because it was clearly stated several times that the theme was open to interpretation. Meaning, you could use any definition of the word that you liked.
So I believe your mistaken considering Nocturne had pointed out earlier that the intended theme had nothing to do with living or life.
The theme was not originally intended to be open to interpretation, just that so many people thought it was, so it had to be allowed. :/
If I understand correctly, Nocturne allowed the interpretation of the theme as "life" because it's just the noun form of "live."
It was most definitely supposed to be open to interpretation, as all the previous jams have been.
Although I do agree with you that I'm a bit disappointed with the games that have been "my character lives so it follows the theme" because that's like every game in existence.
Regardless, in the end it's the voters' decision on how strictly to follow the theme, so it's not like anyone's right or wrong here.
