Let’s take it from the top!!! You can never stop dedicated people from taking on further challenges! After being edged out last week by only 2 votes, Jessica Dencio SFX has put pushed down on the pedal and shown there is plenty of gas left in the tank closing the gap to only 1 vote. If they keep up the fast pace in the last 3 days, both these fine contenders are likely to beat the 250 vote record set last year by Teachpad.

Speaking of impressive numbers there is quite the story to tell after Foxes: The Musical by Ribix broke into the hen house and got a lot of projects that may have thought they were safe scampering for more votes!

First it was w a c o m 4 s t o r i e s continuing their boost they started last week! This put the spotlight on Pseudo Luxury to make its move. And with a tremendous 50+ votes, they did make, shaking up Trib. Projects Gallery Refurb from slumber as well. The domino effect continued to Strait-Laced media itself making a boost from 11th all the way up to 6th place!!

Last week we predicted dramatic changes and a hot, hot battle, and that is what we got! And it’s far from over. Apart from the 11 teams that have hit centuries and are not ready to give up, 12th to 15th is filled with indie game projects who also want to hit the mark. CanDev like a mother duck has shown that it’s possible to contend for a grant spot, and the four of these gaming projects have taken note!

We must leave you today with these exciting developments, and as we are sure to see some more over the next couple days, I will join you as the final countdown continues!! As the finish line is in sight, don’t forget to join us at Stir XP and book a Free ticket on Eventbrite for the workshops and celebrations of awards night. See you very soon Stir Fans. This is Awais signing off, wishing you good luck and happy hustling.
