*TL;DR: Tonight was record setting, people won stuff (if you won stuff
please read), all of the submissions were awesome and we'll see you all on

Woah. Thanks to everyone to coming out to our record-setting Game Jam IX
closing ceremony! (I know it was long -- thanks to everyone who stayed
until the end)

*Records broken:*

   - Most submissions to an SGDC Game Jam: 13 submissions
   - Largest team to enter a Jam (12 people credited on itch.io)
   - Freshmen sweeping the category prizes!
   - Most prizes given out (3 placement, 3 category, 3 raffle)
   - *Longest *closing ceremony (3.5 hours). Whew.

There may be more. Who knows. Anyway: congratulations to everyone who
participated in the Jam! All of the entries were high quality -- we're
really glad to see everyone's enthusiasm and talent. Even if you didn't
place well this jam, you did a great job and we're thrilled to see so many
people competing.

Now, our winners:

*If you won a prize*, I recommend you check out http://sgdc.ml/#catalog
where we have prize suggestions for various prize levels. I'll be sending
you all a separate email later on.

Also congrats to our raffle winners: Sen and Katie, who won SGDC shirts,
and to Bruno, who won a GameMaker: Studio license!

Thank you all so much for the work you put into your awesome submissions.
You've now seen firsthand the kinds of things that can go well, and can go
not-so-well during a packed 48 hour game jam. I hope to see you all at
Tuesday's meeting where we're gonna talk about how it all went and relax a
bit as a club.

See you all soon, and get some rest!
Adam Gincel
SGDC President

PS: I have attached the full results of the vote. Categories were decided
by a simple vote count. The placements were calculated using something
called 1/(n+1) voting, where a vote for 1st was worth 1/2 points, a vote
for 2nd worth 1/3, etc. I've attached the final tally, and the actual
votes.csv file if anyone is curious.
