Hello, I have been looking around these parts of the forums to see about entering a contest. I saw the 4E4 contest, and I was wondering if you wantedto have a vote on what the next contest should be? Or just what do you have in mind?

How about an indirect control ai contest. All entries have to have the player modify ai parameters rather than directly control the player.

How about a text-only contest? You can write whatever kind of game you want, but it HAS to be in text mode.


I second this one, if only because I'd love to see more roguelikes come out of GDNet, eheh.

That sounds a little like the 'GD Arena' contest we tried out (informally) a while back. Contestants submitted DLLs containing AI code to power robots; the host program called into the DLL with information about the state of the world, and the DLL controlled what the robot did. AIs were then pitted against each other in a battle arena.

how about a beauty contest?

How about a microgaming contest? You know, cell phones, pda, etc. Limit its ram/processor usage, etc.
