New Construct 2 Competition!!!

  • mrsponkie - what you are saying would make sense for a, let's say, end of the year "Best of Construct 2 2011" sort of thing. But if it's a compo with a set time limit then a preset theme works out a lot better by making the entries mostly equal (apart from someone just appropriating whatever they had going to a theme).

  • better being judged on a specific theme to follow (who-will-do-it-better will give more excitement to competition)

  • I am pro theme =)

  • Still about 5ish hours away from the official rules posting. However here is a little information until then.

    The theme of the competition is "Reclamation" (as in to reclaim something). This is a pretty broad topic, for example this includes, but is not limited to: something lost or stolen... an object, memories, or person.

    Visual style and location is up to the developers.

    This will be a 6 week competition with a deadline of December 23rd 8pm Atlantic Standard Time.

    There will be also be secondary, Fre-for-all, competition. At the moment this competition will have no prizes except the prestige of winning. Only one entry per person.

    This will be a 3 week competition with a deadline of: December 2nd , 8pm Atlantic Standard Time

    Note: Games completed before November 11th, 2011 are not eligible.

    Ideas/thoughts/feelings so far?

  • Being British I have no idea what 'Atlantic Standard Time' is. What is it in GMT?

    GMT -4 hours

    For example: 4pm GMT would be noon AST

  • Ah! Nice to know. Cheers :)

    Sorry, this include a reclamation of, for example, a mood? a reclamation of the freedom, the equality, the love, could be possible to fix with your competition theme?

    All those examples could fit within the theme of reclamation.

    edit:

    Using freedom for example: If a person was once free, then imprisoned, he could relaim his freedom by escaping.

    However, if a person was, for instance, born into slavery they could "win" their freedom, but they could not "reclaim" it as it is something they never had before.

    edit:

    It also doesn't have to be personal reclamation, you could be reclaiming something for someone else. e.g. A village has an artifact stolen and you retrieve/reclaim it for them.
