Another competition - yay!
Right now, I'm completely failing to think of an interesting "action adventure" game concept, but if I do come up with something in the next week or two, I'll probably have a go at entering
Hoping to pull something together for this...It's been a while since I've finished something, and I have a number of half-finished projects that could fall into this category. Hoping to find an artist.
Well thanks, Rikus! I've had a blast planning everything and seeing it all come together.
Wanted to note that the forum is now up and running over at the site, if anyone wants to try to buddy up or post about their projects. I also encourage discussion and project pages here at TDC, if it strikes anyone's fancy to do so.

How about this: If you use pre-made code, it must be made available to others from the start. I can provide hosting in such cases.
Feedback on this policy is welcomed.
Since you asked, I think it seems unenforceable. For example, I could write a new platform engine totally from scratch, but chances are, it would end up virtually identical to previous engines anyway, just because that's the only/best way I know how. At the same time, you don't want people submitting games that they've already been working on for months, so it's difficult...
Anyhow, I'm still trying to think of a game idea, and still failing (plus I just got another job, so I might be too busy).
