Competitions are a beautiful thing. And because I noticed a lack of those precious challenges around here, I thought I might just as well start my own to spice things up a little.
You might have guessed: it's about decay. Take it literally, make it about rotten and decomposing things or interpret it differently, dealing with the topic on a more artistic level. Let your imagination run wild.
- Your entry must relate to the chosen theme.
- Your entry must be an original game created for this compo.
- You may only submit one game.
- You can work as a team. However, prizes will only be awarded to one single person.
- Since this is a Construct challenge, you'll have to use Construct to create your entry.
In order to join, you need to make a new thread in the Your Creations forum, marking it as entry for this competition in the subject with the following tag: 
After you did so please reply here with the direct link to your game's thread.
Entrants will be accepted until the first day of December.
I thought about it briefly and because I'm not able to pay you 1000 bucks or award you something amazing, some Steam indie games will have to do.
1st place: Machinarium OR Aquaria OR Trine
2nd place: Zeno Clash OR AAAAAA...! A Reckless Disregard For Gravity
(provided by Sagal, so clap your hands for him!)
3rd place: Hammerfight OR Foreign Legion: Buckets of Blood
So winners will be choosers. The reason is simply because some people might already have certain games. And be aware that you will need a steam account in order to receive a prize!
The following community members will be judging the entries:
Judges will be given two votes, which they will give to their favorite entries. You can't give both votes to the same entry. To be frank I grant myself a little extra here, since I will be having one additional vote (so three overall) and if there's some kind of draw, I'll decide who comes out on top.
If you want to apply as a judge please do so by writing me an email or a PM. There's just one restriction: Judges must have at least 100 posts on the forums here. This is just to ensure they are experienced Construct users to a certain extent and somewhat active in the community.
The competition will officially start on the 1st of December. After that date, no more entrants will be accepted. You may already start with your game of course when you read this, but be aware that the whole thing might be blown off if it doesn't spark enough interest.
The deadline is Sunday 10th January 2010. So the competition runs a little longer than a month, considering the holidays I'm sure people will appreciate some extra time.
