Next game competition

Was just thinking that the next game competition could be something like one of these make a game which can only be played with one button.

Good idea. There are many possibilities...

I like that idea too. Not sure if others will though as any type of restrictions seem to incur a mass debate :))

So... Anyone who's interested in entering the next game comp, what do you think about this idea?

Mac mini (2020 ), M1 SoC, 8 GB LPDDR4, 512GB NVMe 
Commodore VIC-20, 1.1Mhz MOS 6502 CPU, 5KB RAM, VIC ( 6560 ) GPU

Until the next time.

Up for that. Maybe also a vector based graphics restriction  to reduce asset creation time?

Yup, vector could be good. My artwork is obviously considerably improved when it's only line drawing I need to do.

In a nutshell the general consensus for the basics is :

1.. Vector art only
2.. Game can only use one key ( no mouse for gameplay )

Thinking further on this, maybe have an exception for a normal games operation outside of game-play. What I mean by that is you can have your menu to toggle options like music/sound, have a pause and quit game key, but the gameplay itself can only be played via the one button. Perhaps also allow the player to choose what button they want to use, just in case not all of us are space bar warriors?

When we say vector art are we just talking about graphics themselves all being done with line commands and funky maths or just basically graphics that aren't filled in, and we can still do stuff like have an animated sprite simulating how it would look in animation? I'm shite at the kind of maths which does the kind of graphics like the original Elite, for example.

Outside of game play it would be best to allow anything as title screen and menu options need not suffer the nightmare of single key navigation.

Vector art wise I was thinking graphics that are either hand drawn lines, line commands or whizzy math based stuff. No filled polygons or textures. Lines can be any colour and also may have a glow effect.

I would draw a few graphics to show what would be allowed and what wouldn’t when posting the comp. it would allow for creative freedom, faster asset output and more of a level play field in the graphics area.
