Hey there. As some of you may know, SMR and I have been working to try and get a little competition up and running. We've decided to kick things off now, and we hope you'll support us in this.

For more information on how everything is supposed to pan out check http://ebbc.dk/compo

The first phase of the compo is voting on a theme. You have a week to do this. Next weekend, I will announce which theme received the most votes and you can start coding.

I would love it if you would reply to this message and say which theme you'd most like to work with. You can choose from the folling list (1 vote each):

- Lasers
- Robots
- Grass
- Arrows
- Cooking

I'd like to see what people come up with for the grass theme. Certainly seems more unconventional and interesting than the rest to me.

Also, it's a forum for a forum website's competition! Forumception?

Seems useless, and unnecessary to me. Why can't we discuss it all here? It's not like the site is overloaded with activity or anything.

One of the reasons is that you can't upload files here and if we allow people to host files themselves we have no guarantee that files aren't tampered with after the deadline. It's also for having 1 central place for the rules and descriptions and such. Posts here would get buried with time and I don't want people to have to be investigators just to find out how to participate.

It's looking like Robots might have it - too bad I'm going to be ridiculously busy the next few days, or I'd be getting a head start on my entry already (not even sure I'll even have time at the weekend, unfortunately - really bad timing for me).

That might be a way of doing it, but it doesn't change the fact that the new downloads people will be putting up would point to their own files.

I would like to see some games where robots are not possessed by the devil, as they seem to be in most media. But yea, I'd like to see some robot games.

My vote goes for grass too by the way. I find think it would be fun to go with mainly because the entries would probably be very interesting.

It seems I made a mistake with the countdown. As of writing this there is about 31 hours left before the development phase begins. I apologize if any confusion has been caused. I have updated the countdown accordingly.

Surely that would depend on what they actually make, rather than how they vote?
Unfortunately, I think the new requirement to use a particular name (in this case "Armored Funk Daredevils") rules out most of the more interesting possibilities, and is likely to result in more generic games.
For example, you could have made something like "The Incredible Machine" or "Incredibots" where the player builds a robot from components; or something where the player programs a robot to perform certain tasks; or all kinds of interesting things - but those aren't going to fit with the stupid name, so you'll end up with just a bunch of platformers.

I don't see the point - it's not going to make the competition any more fun for entrants, and it's not going to make the submitted games any more fun for everyone else to play.
Just my opinion of course...

Looks like we can't please everyone.

In all seriousness, there's no reason we can't hold another compo with a different theme, different game title, etc. This is barely a weekend's commitment on a single game idea, for Pete's sake.

We're deliberately keeping requirements low so that anyone who wants to make a game can do it. I don't care if it's default movement engines, ClickTeam MIDI music, or whatever. It's about putting something out there that helps you build your confidence with smaller projects so you can eventually move on to make more (better) games.

If this is beyond you, then I don't know what else to say. We're just working towards building a more supportive environment, particularly for beginners (and novices like myself).

Yup a crude Real time strategy game involving robots. The CPU turret placement is horribly buggy but otherwise i think it's actually playable.
