Ticalc POTY 2014 now underway :D
« on: December 09, 2014, 01:49:22 pm »
Ok so if you haven't checked ticalc.org yet, the 2014 Program of the Year award has begun! Obviously, the first poll is for the TI-83+/84+ category, and assuming POTY works the same way as previous years, the survey will probably run for 1 week. Then the TI-84+CSE category will follow, then the TI-Nspire.

Anyway, here are the TI-83+/84+ programs participating this year:

Axio Man! http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148705.html
Flappy Bird http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148558.html
Flappy Bird Sideways http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148558.html
JezzBall v1.0 http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148548.html
Legends http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148713.html
Pokemon Battle Factory http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148669.html
Pong Ultimate Multiplayer http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148712.html
Reuben Quest: Ev Awakening http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148613.html
Reuben Quest: The Lost Mirror http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148695.html
VVVVVV http://www.ticalc.org/archives/news/articles/14/148/148561.html

You need a ticalc.org account to vote and you don't have much time to do so, so make sure to vote for your favorite program ASAP! :)

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Vote for this one. It's the best. (My opinion is unbiased, of course :P)

Personally I voted Reuben Quest The Lost Mirror. I might be biased, though, because I made the original, but it's one of, if not the first TI-83+ compatible ASM RPG to come out in finished state in a decade. I had an hard time choosing between it and Pokémon Factory, though, plus the other entries are really great.

I must agree, I would have voted for this one if I didn't have an entry. I think in the end it will come down to this one, Pokemon Battle Factory, and the Flappy Birds just because they use the words "pokemon" and "flappy bird". :P

Although Flappy Bird kinda died down in the last few months. Does anyone know if it's still very popular elsewhere? That said, what I liked about the calc clones is that they are good. Even the latest hybrid BASIC one isn't bad.

Wait what? O.O

Isn't it copyrighted, or did it enter public domain as a result of the author removing it from the appstore?

You can probably guess how we ended up adding a sentence to POTY news articles saying where the polls are. :P

Aren't people still asking anyway, though? I swear someone did a few years ago, but I don't know exactly when and perhaps the person did it jokingly.

I don't remember anyone asking yet after we added that note to the news articles, but we started doing that a few years ago, also.

Of course, if someone happens to ask how to vote on the voting results page itself, I may have to give up then. :D
