Prizes..

Recommended Posts

Quote:
Prizes will be announced in the coming weeks and are provided by the following contest sponsors: ... # Extremely-Sharp.com Swords & Knives # GameDev.net
Just some q's regarding the prizes... What are Extremely-Sharp offering? A nice long katana so we can sepuku ourselves??! Hopefully it'll be a voucher so I can get a crossbow... (assuming I win of course ;)) Also, what are GameDev.net looking to contribute in the way of prizes? A GDnet subscription? Thanks, Ben

Either way it will be awsome. For me, its not even about the prizes as it is the competition. I loved razzing people about 4E3, especially when I figured I wasn't going to win.

True, I reckon this comp will be great. Can't wait to see all the entries..

Yeah, me too. Been chatting too much on #gamedev about design ideas, but I think there will be a lot of entries in the same genre region...

This is going to be interesting. Veeerryy interesting.

OK, i'm tired of waiting! It's Friday afternoon PST. When will prizes be announced? It's the one thing that will make or break my decision to enter.

*continues waiting anxiously*

<Kevin> we're finalizing our sponsorship deals now, so we'll announce the prizes within a week or two

Speaking of razzing people, what all have you folks done so far?

Sadly enough I think I have cracked open the compiler once since this contest was announced. Midterms aren't fun.

Hi Moe. How was that spiritual journey of yours? I have not seen you in a couple of years on these forums.

I think these prizes will be huge. But like you, it is not really about the prizes for me. I need a reason to finish a game. You know what I mean?

Got a blank window up and running. Horray.

That's more than I can show at the moment.

But then again, I'm working on some non-visual stuff right now.


A game without visual? That's really an interesting concept...

Well, I guess I am not doing too badly then. I have a blank window with a blue screen in it, so take that![grin]

I've converted my 2D sidescroller codebase into something i can use for the contest. I changed the perspective and got basic player movement done. So far, i really haven't done too much with it. It's playable already, but i certainly wouldn't call it a game. I've mostly been thinking about how i want the game to play and i think i've got a fairly good idea now. I need to do a lot of animation artwork next.

I would be more motivated if i knew what the prizes were ;-)

Uh oh, it looks like I might end up being schooled![grin] Multithreading, eh? That is something that I might have to learn sometime.

As for prizes, you might want to take a glance at this thread that I started...

Technically I have a Heightmap engine, wrappers for D3D,DSound & DShow and a basic gamestate system with loading screens etc. I'm hoping to follow the route of adding a game to my engine rather than writing an engine for a game.

Haven't done much other than spritework.

Well I've started my coding to make use of Clanlib, but I need to design how levels will work. The sound.. well I should check the resource thread for stock sounds and music. Control of characters has not been designed yet.

But more will appear later in my project thread, as a status update.

Yeah Kevin, rumors have been going around ~ trips to bermuda, new cars, dates - that kinda stuff. You better clear up these rumors.


None of those dates would happen to be with Shilbert?</obscure lounge reference>

Oh, so I'm obscure now? Is that it? How am I obscure, like Milli Vanilli? What's so obscure about me? What the heck is so obscure about me? Tell me. Tell me what's obscure.
