Nah, if I enter comps that I set and then happen to win 1st, 2nd or 3rd, then it my become a bone of contention. I'll just continue doing my own thing in the background

*whispers to Qube*

Here's what we'll do... You make the game, I'll enter it as my own, we win, we go halfs on the smackers... Everyones a winner...

*Whistles*

STICK A PONY IN MY POCKET, TAKE THE SUIT CASE FROM THE VAN, IF YOU WANT THE BEST'UNS THEN DONT ASK QUESTIONS, COS BROTHER, IM YOUR MAN

P.s. I do realise you'll be £250 down anyway, but that's just a technicality innt! :D    Lovely Jubley

Lol, great idea Dabz but we’ll have to talk about it in private or forum members may find out :P

Maybe the person who decides the theme (and owns the website) could start coding before the start of the competition?

For fairness I suggest a poll to decide the theme.  Yes I know we all had an informal discussion beforehand :)

Not that Qube's integrity is in doubt, he's always come across as a great guy, and I'm not entering this time so no sour grapes.  Good luck with your entries guys.

This is true, I could but didn’t.

Members can pick the theme for future comps. That’s grand by me. I’ll also not be submitting anything for this comp or others for fairness.

Good luck to those who do enter. We’ll also need a member to be in charge of the comps, organising, polls, winners etc. Any volunteers?




Until the next time...

Your entry looks good mate, so go for it.  You already made it clear you couldn't claim the cash, so it's all good  :D



Sometimes the written word doesn't come across as friendly as it should - sorry  :)

New on the board, I totally missed this entry.

Anyway, is it possible to just -not- provide an "exe" (*) ?

I'm coding webgl stuff (100% javascript - with my own 3D framework which is intended to be open sourced as soon as it's fully polished)
So, it would be playable in any web browser (on Mac, Linux, Windows and probably on most Android/IStuff devices)
 ... and of course, the full project would be available in zip with sources and media included

BTW, I haven't started anything yet, I'm asking first, and then I'll see if I have a bit of time to build something in a small week

(*) I don't have a windows PC anymore> ... (actually it's in a crate as I'm moving in south France on november 2nd)

If all you making a game that just works in a browser then providing a link ( or I could host it here ) is perfectly fine :)

Do we post that we are making something, or just get it in by the deadline? 

If I get done, can I post it on itch.io and put a link to it here...or where do I upload it? :)

I try to finish something - but I already try to do all these little unneeded things (small object movements to make things less static). Gameplay is not yet finished and there are a lot of assets to still get modelled/rendered out.


Hope nobody minds if I do not do a "storymode/level-map" nor "profiles" but just a casual/easy-to-get game play.

Isn't that what you do to win a competition ?

It's great to up the bar of quality.
If the compos keep going then I'd like to think eventually you'll see some incredible achievements with participants putting in more and more effort to win 8)

Big up for the compos!! \o/
 :P
