Do I have to release my code?
[/quote]

Still mildly curious about this.[/quote]

We never had that requirement in past challenges.

Do you put any sort of restriction on content/platform/etc?
[/quote]

I think that mostly depends on the judges' testing environments, but the more people can play it the better of course. You can check the previous contests following the links in the original post to get an idea of what kind of games were submitted in the past.

What Wan said [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img]

Releasing the code isn't a requirement. There are not platform requirements either, but as Wan said the more judges that can play your game the better!

Original post updated with more contestants and the contests days/times. Edited by zer0wolf

If anyone has any cool prizes they'd be willing to offer up to pitch in that'd be mighty awesome :)

Also note that we'll want as many contestants as we can and more judges!

what about adding a poll to the thread for other people to choose which one they thought is the best ?

I could add a poll, but I'd prefer if more people just plain sign up to be judges :P

I'll be flying out tomorrow morning for a 5 day vacation in Vegas, so I'll only be checking into this thread sporadically during that time. I hope to see more volunteers for contestants, judges, and prizes :)

Ready.

irreversible, your name itself would almost make a good theme. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/tongue.png[/img]

Ready, though my social/work life is not.

Some things must be sacrificed for the greater good of this competition, though.

[edit]

I dunno if you can gift GDNet+ subscriptions, but I'd be willing to gift a 1 month GDNet+ subscription as a prize (or a contribution of $5 to a longer subscription). Edited by Cornstalks

Timezone failure for me to. Another 34 minutes to go. [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/sleep.png[/img]
To bed with me, I'll duel you all in the morning.

[b][Edit:][/b] Okay, I lied, 10 minutes to go, then I'll head to be once I find out the theme. Anyone else waiting impatiently, [url="http://chrishecker.com/The_Depth_Jam"]here's something to read[/url] while you wait. Edited by Servant of the Lord

But what timezone? I live east to Greenwich mean time, someone is living 14 hours more east than me?[img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/blink.png[/img]
I mean, didn't it suppose to start on 26th?


EDIT: Aaaaaoooh Me cans read

[size=2]EDIT 2: I have no idea if my math is right, starting time will be 8 am local time here, so I thought if it supposed to be starting on 26th of May, then the timezone of the contest (where it starts at 00:00 local time) must be 16 hours ahead of Greenwich mean time. 14? dunno[img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/wacko.png[/img] anyhoo, such timezone doesn't exist, so thought I must have been slipped into a parallel universe and was in panic. Then I bravely read the first post and realised it supposed to start on 25th.[/size]
[size=2]Is it possible that I'm a graphomaniac?[/size]

Anyway, I'm in. Edited by szecs

Gah, sorry guys! Got tied up with really, really late release at work. Theme has been announced and the contest is underway! It is announced an hour late so I'll extend the contest an extra hour.

Contest prizes are still being fleshed out a bit [img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/smile.png[/img] Edited by zer0wolf

[s]Nope, it was updated.[/s] (Ninja-d)

Question, is the theme "Kraken", or is the poem the theme? Edited by Servant of the Lord

Hot dang! I might have to get in on this! I won't be able to do any coding on Sunday, but I can certainly do something Friday night and Saturday.

Anchors away me-hearties!

Can I still join? I'd love to give that a try.
If my calculations are correct I still have time until monday 8 am central european summer time?

Edit: What happens If I miss the deadline? I hope my reputation doesn't get slashed...[img]http://public.gamedev.net//public/style_emoticons/default/wink.png[/img] Edited by Madhed
