    I want to hear someone sing, "I've got a Golden Ticket!" ;)

    Maybe they're still sleeping. They had a looong night with 0.8 :-)

    Even though I didn't have enough time to finish my app (only started on it about 8 days or so before the deadline), they sent me an e-mail saying they know I should have won and are sending out a complementary iPad. Nice guys/gals!!

    I assume it would include a confidentiality clause seeing as how they arent announcing until monday

    what are you getting at Tiny?


    Hypothetically speaking...

    Do you have some "friend" that got an email...
  • BeyondtheTechBeyondtheTech Member Posts: 809
    I got an email. In order for me to get the Macworld Platinum Pass, I have to go to a Western Union to wire money to someone in Nigeria?!

    @BTT - Funny I got the same one! It must be legit if we both got it, right?? I think he said the account number was... (lists off own acct number)

    Yea that was it....

    Most of us are about the same age, have a simliar wise-cracking sense of humor, and dreams of making it big making games. Makes you wonder if we are easily profilable!

    @JG and BT-Hey I got that too!! And I didn't even enter?
  • MarkOnTheIronMarkOnTheIron Member Posts: 1,447
    @ TinyMonster: it's more an undisclosure agreement like the ones that bind apple employees.
    And if you tell something you ends like McGraw that announced the iPad on tv and got erased from the editorial brands showed by Steve Jobs.
    Well they're more strict than Apple since no rumors announce imminent updates :-)

    @maralfer: I noticed McGraw-Hill, despite probably being larger then all that were, was not on that slide either! Tee hee!

    It would be nice if someone from GS posted something to let people know when emails have been sent. But they like to keep us guessing so I guess if nothing comes then I'll know.
  • BeyondtheTechBeyondtheTech Member Posts: 809
    As the hours go into the night, I'm starting to lose hope that some of us got picked. Time to go back to the drawing board...

    Has anyone heard anything yet? I haven't...

    haven't heard anything either!

    i haven't heard anything

    give them some time, I'm sure they've been swamped trying to get that 0.8.1 patch out the door
  • scitunesscitunes Member, Sous Chef Posts: 4,047
    yeah, they must be kicking themselves for releasing 0.8.0 the same day as the Mac World results release. Wonder how much sleep they'll get tonight!
  • micahmicah Member Posts: 85
    Either that or they emailed all the finalists telling them not to mention that they won until Monday... I haven't seen firemaplegames in this thread yet. :)
  • scitunesscitunes Member, Sous Chef Posts: 4,047
    good point...

    Let's hear your attempt at trying to convince us did NOT get an email yet, Joe!
  • butterbeanbutterbean Member, PRO Posts: 4,315
    I know... I'm ruling out who's not in this thread, and guessing who got the email :))
  • firemaplegamesfiremaplegames Member Posts: 3,206
    ha! No, not me either! Although my mom and grandmother have been asking all day!
  • eliehangeliehang Member, PRO Posts: 105
    I wonder if it has to do with the bugs.
  • micahmicah Member Posts: 85
    Maybe they gave permission to the finalists to lie to everyone about getting the email. (shifts eyes) Then it could be any of us.

    And on that note, the reason GS is so cool is because the devs brains were taken over by aliens.

    I was hoping for an email when I got back from the movies but nope. So... Firemaple, since you're sure to be in the finals, how about you just drop a code like, say, "The Duck Flies at Midnight" when the time comes.
  • ORBZORBZ Member Posts: 1,303
    i'm guessing they are holding off on the announcements until the 0.8.x bugs are worked out. Think about how much it would suck if you were one of the finalists and your game was announced as a winner and everyone went to play it and it didn't work!
  • scitunesscitunes Member, Sous Chef Posts: 4,047
    So, joe at firemaplegames, has the "squirrel landed"?
