Looks like they are getting in just before the Steam sale. :)
What are you thinking about picking up?
It's a fun shooter reminiscent of asteroids with powerups and multiple enemy types.
So... Go... Play... now... :)
and yes there are a bunch of other entries to the contest off this page http://js13kgames.com/entries
I've always wanted to pick up and play the King's Bounty games, and now it's at a can't beat price. Here's the review I read years ago prompting me to keep this on my radar. In his words "It’s also gloriously ridiculous and constantly inventive." I mean you battle with your belt to upgrade it... http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2008/10/02/kings-bounty-my-zombie-wife-the-belt-odoom/

It's entirely HTML5, so plays right in your browser.

After over 19 years of disseminating the best strategies around the art, science and business of video games, our hearts are heavy to announce that, as of July 2013, Game Developer magazine will stop printing its print and digital editions, and transition to become a section on
Gamasutra.com. (We plan to gradually reprint many of the best magazine articles there, and hope to continue posting new columns from some of our regular writers.)
The final issue sent to print/digital subscribers will be the June/July 2013 issue. We plan to close the digital editions of the magazine shortly after that. But for those who enjoy reading the magazine in a digital format, previous issues of Game Developer will also be posted as .PDFs in a special section on GDC Vault, to open this summer.
