The Liberated Pixel Cup needs you! 
Bjorn - 14-04-2012 01:53
Last week saw the announcement of the Liberated Pixel Cup. Many of you will be familiar with, which now together with the FSF and CC is organizing a two-phase competition in June and July. First there will be one month for pixel artists to create some awesome graphics, and then there will be one month for games to be made with it. Well, I know this community loves competitions, so don't miss out on this one!

Also note that they are paying some commission for the artists helping to set up the style guidelines and plan to have some prize money. Do chip in if you can!

Sonic Style Tile Map Collision Article 
Jinroh - 11-03-2010 03:58
Has been added to the Programming Articles section, here. It's a simple and easy to read article but assumes you already know how to make a simple tile based engine. The code is in C with GDI but should be easily portable.

Happy coding! ^_^

New Online RPG Aims to Highlight Individual Differences 
tcaudilllg - 13-03-2009 10:46
The Socionics RPG is looking for PHP coders for engine redesign. The aim of the redesign will be to add elements of the socionics theory of individual differences to an AD&D-based engine. The ultimate aim is to create sixteen completely distinct gameplay styles which reflect the challenges real people face in coping with the world around them.
