Do regrets of neglected projects still haunt the you to core of your very soul? Does your workbench wail in vain for all eternity waiting for a new project? Search the depths of your Toolbox to gather Something of the Thread, Something of the Head, Something of the Body, and Something of the Dead to craft a Soldering Iron voodoo doll and participate in the Second Annual Ghosts of Portables Past Event! From October 1-31, you can participate in Reincarnation Black Magic by starting back up and continuing an old project to bring it “back from the dead” in the time of year that is most festive.
If you would like to participate in the Ghosts of Portables Past Event, you can do so by adhering to the following:
- The Project you wish to continue must be at least a year old from it’s original worklog creation date, with at least four months elapsed from the last update.
- A existing Worklog of the original project showing the creation date and continuing updates should be available, posted at any site. If your worklog was posted on the defunct Bacman forum, we have full backups to confirm the original project details. You need not to worry about dead pictures, this is just a qualifier for the project dates.
- The new worklog must of course be posted here at Bitfix Forums in the Works in Progress section, and all new updates must include a note (exactly as it was done in the gameboy contest) stating your username, the Ghost of Portables Past Event, and have the Secret Code Word of WITCHES GET STITCHES in all picture updates.
- For the first post in your project thread, the project's name, old worklog link, starting date, and last update should be listed. A brief overall summary of the project so far (to the best of your ability if old pictures are lost) of where you left off and why you stopped should be in the first post, with the continuation of the project starting on post 2. If you have an existing thread here at Bitfix, just continue on from the last post.
Project completion date to be between October 1st thru October 31st 2015 11:59 Central Time to qualify.
Because of the time frame here (not much, only a month) this is more of an Event than a full Competition like the Gameboy Contest. But since these are existing projects hopefully we can get a few finished, which is really what this all about. If you do indeed finish your project, I will send you a game for the project that you made. I'm not sure what I have in my trade box, but I will do my best to make sure it doesn't suck or that you don't already have it. If you live internationally (Netherlands, etc. Canada should be fine), I may need help covering shipping costs. You'll also get a special Ghosts of Portables Past Bitfix achievement badge for your trouble (pending admins).
(I might/probably/eventually even do a special Ghosts of Portables Past Featured Article on your project on my website, but that's not Bitfix centric so y'know)Hopefully if we have enough completed projects, we can do a vote to see who is the Ultimate Spook de Jour (with another pending badge), but we'll see.
Hopefully everything makes sense, let me know if you have any questions. Finish off that worklog but it finishes off you!
