Roll up! Roll up!
I've been looking forward to a new competition for a while, but there doesn't appear to be anything in the works just yet, so I figured I'd do one of my own!
Make a working single player Pong game AS FAST AS YOU CAN!!!
- Game must have a score
- Game must be single player by mouse or keyboard
- Must be produced using ONLY Construct 2 (No Photoshop, etc)
- No 3rd party behaviours or plugins
- Must be recorded showing the working process
- Must provide CAPX of finished version
Who can enter?
Anyone! Pong is simple enough to be able to be made using the free version of Construct 2. I did it in 7 events.
ONLY 1 ENTRY PER PERSON!!! Make sure your time is the fastest, before you enter for a chance to win!
Sounds great! How do I enter?
Now this may be a bit of a stumbling block for some. You need to record the whole of your time creating the game in one sitting from start to finish, post it to somewhere like YouTube and post the link on here.
You can use fraps, snagit, camtasia, etc...
Feel free to speed up the video, as I'd rather not sit and watch 20 minutes straight. Also, post your time and a capx of your finished game for others to see.
It doesn't have to be an awe-inspiring piece, but it must work in some way, shape or form.
Remember, do it in one sitting, and record the whole thing. If you speed it up, it might be a good idea to show a clock or a timer.
Sounds great! How do I win?
Simple! Just make a game as quickly as you can. At the end, I'll rate your game out of 10, and subtract 1 minute for each level of rating you get.
For example, if you take 20 minutes making your game, and you make the best Pong game ever, getting a perfect 10/10, I'll take 10 minutes off of your time, giving you a total of 10 minutes!
Do I win a prize?
Now this is the disappointing bit :( I'd love to offer a C2 standard or business license, but I don't have the funds to just pay out.
I do, however, have a stupidly large Steam list, with a number of duplicate games in my gift list, so I'll let the winner pick from the below selection:
- Half Life 2
- Half Life 2: Episode 1
- Dungeon Defenders
- Dead Space Pack
- Cthulhu Saves the World
- Breath of Death VII
- Left 4 Dead 2
- Trine 2: Complete Story
Sorry about the lack of AAA titles, or new games, but it's better than nothing. Also, for fun, I'll give out a mobile key to my game Internal Invasion to the winner and one lucky runner up... when I finally get to export it...
You lucky people you!!!
When is the deadline?
Let's pick a random date... how about the 24th of December. I'll see if I can give someone a nice Xmas present!!!
So, on your marks, set... GO!!!
