April’s Fool Contest

This Contest Is No Joke!

Ah yes, April. The month containing the one day of the year when you cannot believe anything you see or read on the internet. Together with Engine Publishing, we’d like to take this month and put some good spin on it by coming up with a contest for fools. Literally. We’d like you to create a fool for folks to use in their games.
