 Original post by ApochPiQIs there any penalty for using something like ASCII-mode graphics (think Nethack, Kroz) rather than "art?" i.e. if the gameplay is good, are the shineys absolutely necessary for good judging?

if you meet that minimum requirement that the graphics not be completely offensive to the sensebilities and the gameplay is good, you should do well. A nethack game would be awesome. I've considered making a top down shooter in ASCII mode before.

Sorry if I missed it, but I've never actually been in a GDNet competition before, and haven't experienced this one before (as far as I can remember). How long do we have to work?

Edit: found it. Never mind!

As much as I would like to, the date means I won't be available to judge.

However, since its Christmas, I'll offer as a prize a $75 gift voucher for either NewEgg or Amazon (or equivilant accoring to XE), depending on the winners preference. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites Extrarius 1412 aidan_walsh: You should specify what you mean. I'm guessing you mean USD$75?

Personally, I think the idea sounds like a fun challenge, but I'm too much of a perfectionist to submit the kind of games that resulted from the last 3 hour competition (no offense to the creators, I understand how short 3 hours is) and I'm not familiar with any frameworks so simple anyways.

I just recently started working on what would have been an OWOB entry had I had the time during the actual competition, and it's taken me several weeks already (I don't focus so well).

 Original post by kSquaredI'll offer a box of 36 assorted Cheryl & Co. Cookies, aka "the best damn cookies on the planet" (retail value: $76.22, not including shipping) to any winner in the United States or Canada. Those outside the US or Canada can have an Amazon gift certificate of equal value. (If you're inside the US/Canada, you can have the gift certificate if you'd rather not have the cookies. But I think you'd be making a mistake not going with the cookies.) !!!!!!!!!! I'm in. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites Trapper Zoid 1370 According to my magic world clock, for me your contest runs at Sunday 2 a.m. to 5 a.m., so I don't think I'll participate this time [smile]. However I'd be happy to volunteer to judge (as long as the downloads aren't too massive). edit:contest; not contents! Whoops!

I try to hold them on alternating 12 hour schedules, so hopefully the next one will fit your schedule better. we don't need anymore prizes, I don't think. 3 is enough. Thanks guys. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites d000hg 1199 Quote:  Original post by u235I'll volunteer as a judge. Due to my work schedule I won't be able to participate, but I'll be able to do some judging. Um, if you don't have 3 hours then you don't have time to properly judge IMO, unless only a few entries take place. Can't decide whether to try entering. I'm so used to setting up a decent framework that after 3 hours I'd probably have just got ready to start! Maybe I'll do a practice run on one of the last two themes and see how it goes. #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites Endurion 5407 Dang, 10am your time equals 4am to 7am in my time. I doubt i'll get that done. Arrrrrrrr. No cookies for me :) #### Share this post ##### Link to post ##### Share on other sites aidan_walsh 739 Quote:  Original post by Extrariusaidan_walsh: You should specify what you mean.

You mean \$ isn't universally recognised as USD? [wink]

I kid, yes I should have specified. Of course should someone outside the US win, the voucher will be of the same value, and they can choose an Amazon local closest to them if they wish.

unless the changed the timezone, 10am in the US (east coast) is about 3pm in Austria, unless someone has moved Austria on me without telling.

*shame*

Yep, subtracted instead of added the difference. There ought to be a link to a online world time calculator that shows a time in the users timezone.

But still no can do. This day i've got an appointment. The only one this month. Grnargh.
