Elliott - I have some question. I am sorry, I am new at this.
1) Is this a competition?
2) Do we need to provide our own game assets(graphics, sounds and etc.)?
3) By you mean overly-graphic content, do you mean to avoid making big games and only to create simple but creative game?
2) You can use whatever assets you want, either made by yourself or pre-made, as long as the game itself is yours.
3) Overly graphic refers to violence - action is fine, but we'd appreciate it if it was more Tekken and less Mortal Kombat!
