Maybe we could have a make-a-game challenge but with particular restraints ? I'm thinking about a DBF competition which was "2 buttons" : a mini game should be coded but the only controls were 2 buttons.

So with this kind of idea erm...


well I don't know :p but maybe can it throw some ideas ?

How about monochrome game, in a specific resolution, but the entire gfx needs to be consisted of 6*6 sized blocks or something, forcing the illusion of low res?

I like the idea of a small maximum executable size e.g. best 10k game.

Maybe a combination of the ideas?

A 2 button lo-res monochrome 5k game that results in KristopherWindsor getting pizza? Smiley

I really don't like code size limits. Jesus, let's make a game design compo, not a programming one.

eat your right hand and keep the other one for tomorrow.

More seriously, 1 (yeah, 1!) button / low-res comp sounds fun Smiley

COMPETITION ANNOUNCEMENT:

Write an exciting 1-button game that is so fun I can't stop playing it for at least 3 weeks.  It must be in low res (no greater than 320x240) monochrome, only use 1 button (including any menus you might have - bonus points if there are menu), be very exciting, and have some sound effects and music.  Size requirement:  no more than 3k uncompressed, including sound, music, graphics, and the executable itself.  Just to make things difficult, all graphics should have their width and height doubled and you must implement an image resizer in your code to make the graphics the right size.  This game should be so awesome that girls will want to have sex with you immediately when they find out you wrote it (you lose points if you try to tell me that girls don't have sex because of games).

Competition starts:  NOW.
Competition ends:  In half an hour.

Good luck, and may the best programmer win!

Honestly, I would sacrifice some of my free time to start, organize and manage a compo. I kinda have a game design blockage. But I would just feel stupid offering for a prize nothing but a tap in the back. Maybe CIW ruined it for us.

Why not some kind of graphic signature for the winners ? (Yeah like on DBF forums) I like the idea : nothing more than an ego boosting stuff ("make it grow in 10 days !!")

I thought about holding a contest to promote my DBOS library...like making a game using it. But all I can offer is cool points, which is worth um...probably nothing coming from me. Tongue

DaBooda out...
