What Monica and Neil say! I have had to develop a very thick skin sometimes, even from my own review circle and gaming buddies, so one tip I can share - don't look at the number of people being vociferous, people who don't like something are always more vocal than those who do...
How often do you hear a table ask to thank the chef at a restaurant versus how often complaints get made when something isn't right. In that restaurant, all those tables that don't complain - they are satisfied customers!
So look to this thread, everyone has congratulated you, most of us envious of your success in the competition and we are just the tip of the iceberg of those who quietly and privately make their votes.
I'd also like to echo what Raven says about style - you are all distinct - this means you will all carve our your own fan base, your own chunk of games design space and so on.
View the reactions to your work not by positive or negative but by the strength of that reaction - if you stir the passions of the gaming community, then you must be doing something very right!
