My review is Saira, a game so obscure even I don't know it exists.

It's in the que right now, but I have to run out for a bit and may not get back in time to actually link it before midnight. BUT I announced it, so that counts, right? Right!?

Just waiting for my entry to queue through.

Ah, here it is. Flotilla.

How long do we have to get our judgements to you EmP? I didn't find any clear date (or I missed it).

Question for the other judges: what kind of scale are you using? I know we're out of 100, but what score would you equate to, say, an A effort? What about an F effort? Are we talking 10 points for an F or a more "university" 50 points scale?

Just for clarification: apparently you're all giving the review a different obscurity score. This obscurity score is a separate calculation separate from the standard review score and should be added at the end once you have given a proper score.

1 to 100
50% for readability
25% for clarity of game mechanics/thought
15% for proper grammar
10% for feelings evoked by the writing i.e., did the writer get the emotion of the game into the review.

Mine's a secret. It's so secretive I don't even know how it works. Basically I throw a bunch of percentages at the review, and whatever sticks is the score it gets.

The Obscurity Modifier works like this, however.

If I've heard of your game, -5. If I haven't, +5. Then the other 5 points are basically how much information I can find with a quick google search. Having no wikipedia page will probably give a +5, having a stub wiki page will be a +3 for example. But other factors will come in. But I'm a mainstream sort of gamer, so I doubt I've heard of any of these games.

I'll use this spot to report my judging progress.

7/13

I'm having a lot of fun reading these. I don't think there's been so many consistently good reviews in a tournament in a long time. It helps that I'm not writing in this one.

Honestly, though, I think the writers here have all matured, myself included, and this is a really good sign of that.

There some really good reviews.

I've only got five left. I don't know if I can promise tomorrow, as we're shooting all weekend.

But Monday for sure.

NOTE: I'll still aim for Friday.
