1.. State the best three games in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place ( see vote example below ).

3.. Voting must only be via PM ( see above ).
4.. You can not vote for your own game.
5.. Members with less than 10 posts can not vote unless they themselves have submitted a game for the comp.

Just a thought, and probably a bit late, but are you going to put up a post here to say who has already voted like last time? Seem to remember we were concerned last time about the lack of votes from people and could maybe use a reminder? Might encourage a few late-comers to have a look as well.

Did I win?...Oh yes, RemiD said I should write a simple game first.  I did that some time ago before I jumped on the merry-go-round of arseholes that abandoned their languages and disappeared.  I'd upload it but I think there's a Mb limit on uploads to a thread.

Anyway, good luck to all the entries, you did SyntaxBomb proud.   :D

np I understand, the comps are over a short period of time, so unless you have a set of game routines to call on in a language you're fluent in then you're really up against it.  You won't have time to invent the wheel and also get the vehicle moving lol.   :))

But you got a project completed, even if you thought you could have added extra polish...Perhaps another award Qube could add to a profile - "Competitor" lol.

( i am not the bad guy, i am the guy who pushes you a little so you become better ;) (and i count on you to remind me that when i fuck around and find excuses, ok ? ( that i sometimes do ( that's a lot of parenthesis ( i hope that i have not forgot to close any set (of parenthesises ( ;D ) ) ) ) ) ) )     


( also i know that i use an old deprecated language / graphicsengine, but hey i have still some great fun making 2d/3d stuff with it  8) )


good luck to all participants! and congrats to those who have finished a good enough game...


the previous sentence just gave me an idea for a next competition :
why not organize a competition, where the participants must choose one of the game submited in one of the last comp, by another participant, and make their own modified version of it ?

well to be honest, i have made a lot of procedures / systems / templates / prototypes over the years, but only finished 2 games (with simple gameplay and low details graphics), (for 2 competitions lol )


so hey, i am part of the not finishing not releasing group. :-[

I suggested a sequel to a game that someone else had written previously, when people were suggesting ideas for a previous competition, but it didn't really get much excitement.
