    [PIMP] Game Development Contest - £2k prize

    Hi all

    It's already been mentioned on Jayisgames and FreeGamesNews.com as well as by Squize on the Stimunation blog, but... I thought I'd give the Mousebreaker game development contest some bigging up here on FK too.

    We're offering three cash prizes of £2000, £1000 and £500 - (click here to see that in $) - to the winning entries.

    All entries should be received by the end of November (which gives you around 7 weeks) and the entries will be judged by the Mousebreaker team. The 3 winners will be announced on Mousebreaker.com one week later on 7th December 2006, and winners will also be informed by email, natch.

    Full contest details are here - please read them. Any questions feel free to contact us via competition[at]mousebreaker.co.uk, or just PM me here.

    Hope some of you will manage to find the time to enter!

    Cheers
    Rich

    Marmotte - it would be great if you could find the time to enter!

    X-Tender - Showing parts of the game, or a WIP on somewhere like Flashkit certainly wouldn't disqualify an entry. We're just trying to avoid people submitting games that have already been licensed or sponsored elsewhere. We'd like all the games submitted to be new and original, that's the idea!

    Cheers

    Level based... That means an rpg is ok? fast loading... on what connection I see there is a file size stipulation too... That prolly puts me out as everyone on flashkit know I love to work in full screen productions.

    Man I got a great RPG I'm working on too, it's in my sig, called lost if you want to check it out, when it's done it's gonna be the bomb, maybie I can scale down the first level for this contest, but if the game has to be completely finished by the deadline, not just one level, there's no way, it would be way to big, and I plan to have this game last as long as zelda.

    Sounds interesting though... but I'd have to get out of full screen production =(

    Xareox - we can provide the highscore assets to paste into your game (just a simple call to a PHP script) so don't worry about that.

    nGFX - Heh, hope you can find the time to enter. Remember, sleep is for the weak.

    Sure, you can submit more than one entry if that's what you mean.

    I'd really love to give this a crack, but the only things I've got to hand are a reskin and a 90% done simple viral.

    Bugger.

    Anyway I thought I'd give this thread a bump, at present XareoX is looking to enter 20 games, and scheletro is mad keen for it.
    But what about everyone else ? C'mon guys read the conditions. You're not signing the game over for ever, it's just going to sit on mousebreaker ( Which isn't a bad site for any game to sit on ) for a while before you can pimp it back around again. You're not selling it or any of the other crap which normally goes with a comp., it's a genuie comp as they should be.

    Think how much you'd get for getting a game sponsored, here you're looking at around $3700 ( http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=200...utf-8&oe=utf-8 I love google ) plus it's not exclusive to them ( Well, only for a month or two. If $3700 isn't worth letting a site host your game for a while then what is ? ).

    K, rant over. Open Flash, code a beautiful game, laugh all the way to the bank.

    Squize.

    If I wasn't in the middle of preparing for a big wedding, I'd give it some serious thought.

    Under 600kb though, that's harsh.

    I'm going to.

    Seeing as it's no real secret, as I posted this image (with a now resolved problem) the other day, this is a screen shot from the basic engine.

    Sounds like a great comp - those kinda prizes should turn out a whole new batch of quality flash games. Hope I can come up with something original and fun by the deadline!

    Btw charlie, aren't those graphics ( the tree and ground ) ripped from the BBC B game, Exile?
