Fun Chowder Game Competition: Reclamation

  • Fun Chowder Game Competition: Reclamation

    http://funchowder.com/

    With increasing browser support for HTML5, and the recent news about Flash and Silverlight, it is a perfect time to encourage the development of games using Scirra's Construct 2. And of course shamelessly promote and improve the services of Fun Chowder Games. :)

    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, mojo, person, etc...

    Primary Competition: Themed

    Closes: December 23rd, 11:59pm GMT

    Design a game in Construct 2 with the 'Reclamation' theme. All game assets (art assets, sound effects, music, etc...) must either be created by the etrant, or used with permission (e.g. Scirra Spite Packs).

    Both early-adopters and free license users are welcome to enter the competition, there are however certain advantages in scope by having an early-adopters license.

    Everyone can submit up to 2 entries for the themed competition. The number is limited because we want to encourage the development of polished and complete games, or at least what could pass as complete. Please do not entre demos into the competition, but feel free to post your works in progress on the forums. (perhaps start a forum thread for everyone to share their works in progress).

    Secondary Competition: Free for all

    Closes: December 2nd, 11:59pm GMT

    Only a single entry with the same rules as above, however you are not bound by a theme. At the moment there will be no prize giveaways for this competition except for the prestige of winning.

    Only two winners, one chosen by us, and the other chosen by the fans.

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

    Small Print:

    All entrants give the unlimted right to Fun Chowder Games Ltd. to use any and all material submitted in the Fun Chowder Game Competition: "Reclamation" for promotional purposes. All material remains the property of their respective owners.

    Amazon vouchers will be emailed to their respective recipients. The voucher will be provided in your equivalent native currency. Fun Chowder Games Ltd. reserves the right to exchange prizes to other items of roughly equal value if there is difficulty in providing said prizes.

    Edit: Changed deadlines to GMT

  • How To Enter

    Primary and Secondary Competitions

    To submit a game, simply reply to this post with:

    a) The name of the game

    b) The competition it is entering (Primary or Secondary)

    c) A URL to play the game (read how to upload your game to dropbox for free!)

    d) Your country of residence

    Everyone is allowed to enter the competitions. Do not post any links on this thread to works in progress! Only completed entries should be posted. There is a seperate thread for works in progress. Please post all works in progress here: Reclamation WIP

    Note: Categories will be finalized at a later date, just say what category you feel your game belongs to. If the category you picked doesn't quite match up with the final list we ask you which category you would like your game to be moved to.

    Note: There are no category prizes, but there will be a vote for "best of" in each category. For example: Best puzzle game

    Judging

    All entries will be judged by Fun Chowder Games

    There will also be public voting for fan favorites

    The criteria for judging may change slightly, but in general we are looking for how games feel overall. Examples include, but are not limited to:

    Playability: Does the game control well, are there glitches that hinder play, that sort of thing.

    Game Mechanics: Are they well implemented? Unique? Help drive a story?, this is a broad category.

    Effective use of theme: For primary competition

    Artsyle: More important then sheer graphical fidelity is the aesthetic: http://penny-arcade.com/patv/episode/graphics-vs.-aesthetics

    Music/Sound: Are they used appropriately and effectively, does the sound and music enhance the experience?

    Engaging: Sort of an x-factor. The game just draws you in and you want to keep playing, based more on the fact that it is fun and appropriately challenging.

    Completeness: Does it feel like a complete game, or more like a tech demo?

  • Current Prizes: Total prizes valued at over $800!!!, and more could be coming!

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

    P.S. With lack of interest, mini-competitions have been removed to focus on primary and secondary competitions.

  • Quite impressive, actually. Time to do some designing.

    Edit: Reading on, the logo and avatar bits do seem to steer into the evil swamps of crowdsourcing, but then, perhaps, a good chance for some young designers to get some practice.

    Yeah, those bits can always be dropped if there is no interest, just figured there may be some bored artists or something on the forums :P

  • I wish we had competitions like this for CC..C2 is so hard to work with right now. Anyway, I might join..got some ideas brewing already :)

    Part of the reason for the competition is to help encourage and familiarize developers with construct 2, and help give them insentive to stick with it while it continues development.

    And for all those creative people who cannot code/script, this is really their best option for making HTML5 games. Which by the looks is the next big thing in gaming <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle">

    Another great game making tool still in development is Spriter, by the folks over at BrashMonkey. If you plan on doing a lot of 2d animation in games, its definately worth a look.

  • BTW Here's a link to some game art resources http://opengameart.org/

  • Sweet! Hope i can done my project on time :P

  • Wow, just wow. Can't wait to see the entries.

  • Braxmule is there a minimal amount of entries rule?

  • Wink Given the popularity of the last competition on the forums, we decided it was safe not putting a minimum. However, if it adds pressure to create, we can certainly add one <img src="smileys/smiley2.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

  • Also, if there are any moderators on that would like to re-sticky this thread, to make it easier to find during the course of the competition, that would be fantastic! <img src="smileys/smiley4.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    edit: Thanks for the sticky! <img src="smileys/smiley1.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
