Ooooh, just saw this today and realised I haven't made any games in a super long time!

Just planning on making a basic platformer for the competition! Should be fun!

@ OMC: It's okay (my personal feelings of Son Son being neglected once again set aside... ) You're busy with The Buswick and an action-packed summer anyhow, so I completely understand. Maybe I can take your MFA and make something that's less than completely horrible as a tribute.

@ Introversity: Glad to hear you want to jump in on this! There's a month left, and that's plenty of time. Think we'll see some of your game inspired by Feral Chronicles? The animal characters and platforming seem to fit right in to that idea of yours. In any case, I'm happy to hear we have another participant.

@ Everyone: Yes, that's right...One month left! Depending on your schedule (and your level of personal discipline), a lot can be done in that time. No matter what your level of skills, take a shot at a gift certificate prize, eh? Everyone will receive constructive reviews of their efforts, as long as you submit an entry.

And about The Buswick: it runs through the month of August, and promises to be super cool! OMC will be hosting it again this year. I'm sure he'll be posting more info about it as the time draws near...Stay tuned!

I still dream about finishing the Feral Chronicles! It'll happen one day, I am certain of it!

In the meantime, progress has been made on the Leo of the Zodiac game, and this time I'm making it in Flash and not in Multimedia Fusion which has been a learning experience for me!

Image

I've got Movement, Screen changing, 1 backdrop, 2 Enemies so far (tried looking to the zodiac for inspiration for enemies, but three of them are Ram, Goat and Bull which are all pretty similar), a bouncy jump pad, a save point and deadly water (it's full of deadly fish maybe?). Still need to work in some dialogue with other friendly lions, and a couple of other features to keep it interesting. Decided not to add in an attack, for some reason a pacifist lion strikes my fancy. I also have no idea how to make a Save Game that'll stick around after you close and reopen the game since it's in Flash, but I'm sure there's a tutorial out there somewhere that can help!

And then I need to actually make the art for levels (as much as I love giant black blocks, this isn't Knytt Underground), more backdrops, some trees and scenery, and maybe some semblance of a storyline!

I haven't been this excited about making a game in ages!

Just over three weeks to go, folks! I have five participants on the roster:
One Man Army Games
LordHannu
lembi2001
AndyUK
Introversity


There are three prizes, and five competitors...Is anyone else going to give this a shot? Your chances of taking the top prize are still pretty good. And there's no shame in a game project being done in a couple weeks, eh?

Just post your intent in this thread, and then once your game is done post a download link in this thread.

Best of success to all the competitors!!!

So, I started trying to make a game on a whim, but then realized I was biting off more than I could chew, given the time left.

I got about as far as making some tidy little zodiac symbols, but now I've got no real use for them.

If anyone wants to use them (as uselessly late into development as this is), please feel free.

I'm really hoping for another entry soon. I'd hate to feel like I didn't deserve a prize haha.

There's still a bit of time for everyone to finish up!

So sorry

completely forgot about this. Going on holiday at the end of the week and I've been busy sorting things out. If the existing entrants are ok with it I can submit my entry tomorrow evening at the latest. I understand if not and good luck with the competition.

I vote that it's okay. The more content the better, says I.

LordHannu and OMAG, if you folks have any objections please let me hear them (either here or in private message). Otherwise, lembi2001 is in if the entry can be submitted within 24 hours.

Couldn't find a place to host it, hopefully FastSWF will let you guys play it for a while!

Hope you enjoy it!

Remember to click on the game before you press backspace!

Edit: Uh, did I submit it in time? I thought the cutoff wasn't for another nine hours?

@Introversity: Eh, you made it in time, no problem.

At this rate, we'll have four submissions by the end of the day today. Sounds legit to me.
