Literary Contest - Is it still going?

G'day.
I had a quick Q. Is the contest still alive and kicking? Because I noticed that it stated on the website that By April 30, we shall sum up the votes and announce the winners. Because they haven't announced anything yet, has the deadline been extended, or are GSC still accepting applicants.

Thanks!

Therefore, we extend the voting and the contest until April 26

So I take it the voting lasts until May 26? Hmm... I think I'll have to sit this one out. I'll still try to write a story for everyone to (hopefully) enjoy.

Thanks Chode.

That's as close as my estimates make it. And I doubt they'll extend it any more this time, at least not unless they delay the game.

My logic is if the game is intended to ship at the end of September, then it's likely they'll have to give it to THQ/Russobit to mass produce at least a month before this (end of August, around my Birthday). That means that at the end of this month, they will have 3 months left of development. If they need to integrate the contents of the winning stories in the game, it will take more than a month of work, possibly only two.

Ok, looking at that, I think it's possible for the contest to be extended one more month.... anymore than that and we know the game will be delayed.

well, I think you might still have a chance, but they are not taking in any stories anymore as far as I know

P.S- bloody hell, Chode, you're a resident! Didn't take long for you to post 150 posts, eh?

Oh well. I am working on my own piece of literary work now for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R. community as of now. However, it is non-fiction.
I'm hoping to release it later today.
