Monkey Archive Forums/Monkey Discussion/LD27 Deals... free publicity for Monkey maybe?

I'm not sure how much publicity this would actually get, but it may make more people aware that Monkey's on the radar to have it covered on LD with some sort of promotion perhaps! The Construct2 guys appeared to have done that, and even though it's a modest discount, it's free publicity, and a few more sales to boot.

Ludum dare reaches *tons* of people. And since Monkey has free HTML5, people could try it straight away!

What about giving all developers who use the monkey demo for LD a free copy afterwards?

It can just be positive.
In the 'worst case' we have a few new monkey developers on board which will probably write some modules, improving the overall monkey ecosystem.
Maybe they will tell there friends about monkey which then will buy it.

Not doing anything has no benefit.

A novel idea might be for mark to give every member of the site 1 free key to give to a team member or friend, the community would swell pretty fast as a result I think.

possibly a free key that needs to be used within a week and then remove the offer, this year's xmass gift to us :) just a thought.
