Testing. Testing. One, two, three. Ok, this thing is on, so pay attention!

The Squiddies are upon us, and it is time to get your submissions in. The due date is March 15, 2019 so get them in. And if you’re unsure if you should submit your game, community, or an outstanding person? Do it! There are a lot of great people and games out there, and we want to hear about them.
