Yes, this phrase will be an easter egg.

I don't want to tell you what phrases we considered BEFORE coming with the contest idea because I don't want to set a precedent. We are basically looking for something that when you read it, it makes you laugh. It can be sarcastic as hell, it can be something about us partying in hawaii after releasing the game, whatever your mind creates. I've seen some really good phrases, and I'm glad because of that, we didn't set a phrase as example, because we may end up using something really different to what we first had in mind.

A think that there should be a humourous phrase in their like: "We have been in 9 games so far and the Final Fantasy series is still beating us!"

Damn now i cant use that for a phrase ;)

Can members of the KQ9 team submit phrases?  Cause I just submitted 2 (I can tell you now, though, they won't be used - and NO, they aren't offensive - well, perhaps to Cesar - JK!  There's no reference to Cesar at all in them).

On the phrase contest team members can participate... If you want you can participate, its a matter of creativity anyhow.

Asked and answered!  ;-D

Gosh, I haven't submitted anything yet!!  :o

Not that I have anything to submit...  :-\
I leave this contest to those better familiar with the English language than I, as I leave the other contest to those better familiar with games that require coordination 8)

But I'm still waiting for a contest I could actually win to come around... how about "who can sleep the longest?"  ;P

i dont know what else to do for a phrase :-\

Oh a good idea just popped into my mind ;D, seeing i had a major Glitch in my MoE game i might revolve it around paying out MoE ;D

Just an idea though ;B

Gee, thanks ;P
My English isn't terribly bad (at least, not in comparison to that of most people I know, present company excluded) but I still think native speakers have the adventage there  :-\
Then again, it could be my excuse for not being able to come up with anything creative enough  :P
