Back in Time…

Like last year, we've decided to run a series of thematically linked updates again. Numerous options and variants have been proposed and discussed, but the poll about what our visitors would prefer to be covered remained unconclusive. The general rough preference seemed to be in the direction of doing an age-based theme (like last year) again. Between the choice of going back 15 years, 20 years, 25 years or 30 years, things remained fairly open, though.

So we're going for all of them! Well, at least in theory. As a baseline, we have made detailed plans to add one game from 1983, 1988 and 1998 each month. What about 1993? It's part of this theme in principle, but due to capacity problems, we don't want to promise anything we cannot fulfil. Since we already looked at 1992 in great detail through most of last year, 1993 seemed to be the obvious lowest priority as it would have been very similar.

So three updates per month – that still leaves plenty of room for all of you to join in and share your own favourites! As a small incentive, all game or review submissions fitting the theme (i.e. belonging to a game released in either 1983, 1988, 1993 or 1998) will be awarded a 50% bonus on the regular amount of contribution points (any other contents not in the theme scope are still welcome through the regular channels as well, of course).

Curious at what's to come? Then stay tuned to see what our hamster wheel will spit out next!
