Who's planning to enter the competition?

Post by dankna » Wed May 04, 2011 9:38 pm

... or is it just me, haha? :)

Would love to chat a little about what people's plans are. I'm thinking single-stage sidescroller for mine, but I've been distracted with other tasks and not able to make a start on it yet.

I started on something for it half a year ago, but there's no way I'm going to finish it in time, given how sporadically I've been working on it.

Though, I wonder if a "preview" demo is allowed. :P

I wish I had known about the competition a little earlier. My current project would not be suitable, nor will it be anywhere close to complete by June 1 :D

If there is one next year I will certainly enter.

Sorry but I'm not.
I haven't done anything last year, and may/june is typically my very busy period of the year.

I was wanting badly to come up with something, but tennis and school swamped me. I just don't have that much time to code and concentrate. :/ :(

Seems this thread turned to 'who's not planning to enter the competition'.

What a complete and utter shock, right? :P Like I said, if I finish my game to the point where I have a working preview build in time, then I'd like to submit that. As it stands right now, I'm not too far off from one.

I'm a cut scene engine, attract mode, and three pieces of music away from having an entry done.

I am quite a bit away, but I still think I will have something to submit.
I have no doubt I won't win, but thats not really my motivation anyways.

So, what YOU plan to submit for competition?
As for me, I'll try and make Dizzy like game.
I was always thinking about it.I have map already drawn, all puzzles and items decided.
Game is going to have "minimalistic" grafic\music style.
Game is going to be titled "Dizzy:Melanchony of existance"
I think that's all what's worth mentioning.

Isn't it a bit late to start coding/drawing/composing? =)

It's not too late if one supposes that competitions like this will be annual, and not if one already has a tech demo into which to drop characters and maps.
