Hello all!

 

I'm putting together a contest. For beginners and beginner-intermediates. And it's Pong/Table Tennis. The contest itself will start on October 1, 2013 12:00 AM PST and will end on November 1, 2013 12:00 AM PST. From September 15, 2013 to September 30, 2013, I will give the rules and criteria for the contests.

 

Any library or game-maker software is acceptable. All platforms are welcomed as long there are people who can test and review on those platforms.

 

*** Further details available in THIS TOPIC! ***

 

Edit:

 

For those of you who have never made Pong before, you have a month to brush up your skills in making that basic game.

 

For those thinking about or have already decided to participate, know that the contest will be about making a more enhanced Pong that goes beyond the normal game. I'm still working out what those enhancements will be.

I always like contests; it's looking at what everyone else produces that makes them interesting really.

 

So I'll register some early interest. Whether I can stay motivated for a month is a different question but I could certainly knock together a pong game.

 

I guess there are more deets to come, right?
