I think I'll create a new signature just because. I've been making the graphics for my game ahead of time so I won't be screwed for time at the last second. Then I can focus more on game play when the time comes, less on graphics. I have a general idea of what I want to make this jam, but I'm not precisely sure. we shall see :D

I feel I should warn that the handicap this time around is "interesting" in the most expansive meaning of the word and that all blame should go straight to TehPilot and Newkill. ;)

Of the 36,686 words possible, I think we can all agree that it's aardvarks.

Actually Dark, this dooooooes look far more probable than a Halloween theme... I mean really, it isnt like its almost Halloween or anything....

Fixed that for you.
So you're telling me that my plan to base my game around the handicap is completely warranted and I'm fully justified? Hoora, I'm so shooting for Best Use of Handicap this Jam.
Anybody wanna compete with me?

I really think you guys should leave guessing alone, cause eventually, you'll guess it, and then the whole Jam will be ruined, or they'll have to change the theme. So stick to the rules!

People guess every time, but usually people don't get it right until there's not enough time to have a real advantage. It's just for fun.

OK this is completely wrong every step of the way.
I really think you guys should leave guessing alone Why? cause eventually, you'll guess it No, the odds of that are quite low at this point in time. Do you really think that someone will conclusively prove that they've guessed the theme correctly with absolutely no hint-letters? And even if they did guess it, what's the problem? What about that made you say that they should leave guessing alone? the whole Jam will be ruined Because of what? Because they guessed it? How would that ruin anything? or they'll have to change the theme Why would they have to do that? It's not like one or two people knowing the theme other than the one or two people who already know the theme (Nocturne + Winners) will actually change anything. Sure, if they guess the theme they could start their game early, which would be cheating....However, people can already cheat if they want to. Most people here are in a good enough spirit not to cheat the Jam. stick to the rules! ..What..? Where exactly is there a rule that says that nobody shall guess the Jam's theme? In a previous Jam, a couple people did correctly guess the theme, and they were PM'd by..either Nocturne or the theme picker I forget which, telling them that they guessed correctly! If there was a rule against this, you'd think they'd enforce it? Not to mention the fact that they put all the hint spaces (those _ _ _ _ _ _ _ things) to encourage guessing. Sheesh.

TL;DR: There's nothing wrong with guessing the theme or handicap.

In a chance of at least 216 letter combinations, our chances of guessing the right word are low. However because of context, we have several clues.
