iDevGames's editor Carlos Camacho made a news update to their site about a problem affecting many entries in their uDevGame Mac game programming contest. For a while their servers were overloaded with requests to download the 24 games -- so overloaded that many who hoped to download these games got nothing but an error. Now Camacho notes the servers are up and running, ready for you to resume downloading the game and begin voting for the one you like best. Here's his update:

uDevGame 2001 has attracted the attention from game players and developers from around the world. I estimate that over 30,000 downloads of the games have taken place. (That is a conservative estimate.) Due to the high traffic, our server was unable to keep up and many of you experienced Server Errors. We have now added additional download mirrors for each game entry. I recommend you visit the Current entries page and find the download link that works best for your location. Once you have finished playing the games, please visit the link below to vote for your four favorite games. Thank you for making uDevGame 2001 : The Macintosh Game Programming Contest such a huge success!
So be sure to do your part and get out the vote for your favorite among the many excellent contest entries.
