I just got my prize today (Nov 16th)! So, if anyone still hasn't gotten it, there is still hope.

Has any of the other 97 Semi-Finalists received there Prize yet?
EdArtGaming's avatar
hmm... how long ago did you get it? I haven't got anything and I sent back the info that they wanted.

Mmm, around the 25th. It was very quick, considering most prizes I've ever won take at least a month or more to show up. They have 100 people to send stuff to, so I'd wait a little longer before contacting $Moonbeam13.

Yup, I agree just look at the color, dreary, doesn't make sense. Tough critic, not easily amused. I wanted blood
Well, congrats to the winners anyway.

Better luck next time, back to drawing board for the rest of us.

Ah, that ol' cliche. Because no one is allowed to have any fun or any entertainment so long as there are BAD THINGS in the world. LOL.

Also, the game is about humans fighting monsters. Where that correlates to your "story" I have no idea.
