    Some of you may have already seen and played in our shiny new Arcade.

    Guess what? We're making it even more awesome! That's right!

    Introducing: The Arcade Challenge

    The idea is that each week will have a different arcade game "featured" as the challenge of the week. Your goal is to have the highest score at the end of the week. (Only scores that are submitted DURING that week count for the challenge... this is to give others a chance against those that may have lucked out with their score).

    The game of the week, leaderboard, and last week's winner may be found by clicking the 'Arcade Challenge' tab above the shoutbox, OR at the top of the arcade page.

    Development Fast Track Alert!
    Just to make sure things are behaving properly, the "week" has been shortened to "a day" while we work out any kinks in the system... so for now, you're lucky enough to have a DAILY arcade challenge. Get your trigger finger warmed up!

    Prizes?!?
    You read right... we are thinking _very_ hard about giving away prizes to the challenge winner each week. No, you won't get $50 steam games or anything, but who knows... keep your ears tuned, I'll post more info once I'm happy with how the challenge setup is running.

    Enjoy!

    Lol. Used to be good at the win3.1 version... the flash one not so much. Screw up once and it's all downhill from there :D

    I'm hard pressed to find someone that can beat my tetris scores on any system :p

    OK folks, I'm pleased to report that after watching things and fixing a few bugs, I think we're ready to make this "real"!

    What that means is it will now be a weekly thing, and each week's winner will get a prize, just as soon as I finish coding in that little bit of stuff ;)

    The winner will receive 1 month of free supporter perks - in game and in-forum. We may mix things up and also give out a steam game once in a while as well.

    I'll post back here again once the prize system is in place, should be soon. If you don't want to check back in this thread, watch the "arcade challenge" panel, it will also have a note when this is the case.

    Update: Perks prizes are NOW ACTIVE! The winner of this week's challenge onward will receive a free month of perks! (provided my code works as intended :D)
