How long is that up in the store? I tried to republish my Neon Command game again after sevetal years. I was not allowed as i left the term Missile Command in the description. So there is some kind of IP checking going on.

Instead of a certain type of game or style make the next comp about a certain game language.
Pick a free one anyone can use and do what ever you want. New Amos language comes to mind.

Brilliant idea. I vote for COBOL  :P

Or maybe a shoot-em-up programmed only in MIDI and playable on etch-a-sketch!

A "choosen language competition" might put off some people - some might know the language alreas - some computers might not be able to run the compiler (mac, linux ...) and would have to boot up another OS just for compo development ... nah

Best is ...to stay with the "random theme" output by that little script - maybe we could/should add some new keywords. If people want this then Qube could post the current keyword list.

I'll not have the time to enter, but here's an idea...

Whoever enters, each person gets one specific item/object they have to create a game around, each item/object is picked by random and assigned to an entrant by Qube, maybe using something like:-

That'll be interesting!

EDIT: I've just hit a run of 10 presses on the generator and got Soy Sauce Packet, lol! :D

God no. Unless we had a choice in languages, maybe. I'm not putting bloody Unity on my old Mac again. Took me ages to get anything done when i last used that and I didn't enjoy the experience.

Not sure i'd really want to learn something new and get a game out there within a tight deadline, however. People use the tools they use for a reason. Although I'd be tempted to stump up for the new AGK (i probably should have done while it was still half price) if I was, ahem, forced to, so I could enter :-)

GREAT IDEA! I'll start work on mine now.

Erm, anyone got a real etch-a-sketch they could lend me?

There's something delightfully sadistic about this idea. Bet I'd end up with a flippin' OXO cube or something.
