PostPosted: Fri Jan 30, 2009 4:32 pm    Post subject: A 2009 February 48hr contest? [quote]

I'm sure people have noticed: it's been *very* quiet around here recently. There are posts on the first page of this very forum from 2007.

The thing I always loved about this place was the 48hr contests. How about we have one? To liven things up a bit?

I would suggest, as a theme, a technical limitation. A low resolution or 16 colour palette or something else suitably lofi!

DISCUSS!

I'm interested, but only if this doesn't turn into another month-long contest. I'm busy with a big project (expected release date: July 2010), and I can't afford to take much more than two days off for another project.

OMG! I have been wanting to hear that there would be another competition here :D
I'm so in.

I'm up for a very low-res (under 320x200) contest!

How about a 200x150 res game scaled up to 800x600 for rendering or something?

..when would this be taking place? All my Sundays are taken; but any other pair of days will work for me.

Cool! So that's three definites and two maybes, right?

Purely for selfish reasons I'm going to suggest any time after the 16th (deadlines :( ) and not the weekend of the 24th (KOTM!)! But there's no reason why it has to be a weekend! I'll start a poll to vote on a preferred date.

Also, I totally agree with Rainer: NO EXTENSIONS! At all. (I think if you're expecting an extension you subconsciously plan out a game that'll take longer than 48hrs to make; that certainly seems to have been the case for previous contests.)

For theme: I like low-rez/lo-fi as a general theme, but let's leave it up to people to interpret exactly what that means for them :)

Necromancing! Maybe you missed that the thread is from 2009? Anyhow, a new contest would be fun, this place always lives up a bit more when there is one ongoing.

I figured it was a bot, but there's no link anywhere.

Yeah, it probably was but I got tricked by the nonexistant link.
