One question, when you say the game must be 2D, does this mean that simply the game has to be 2D, or is it mandatory that every aspect of it is 2D like a logo or something?

Good question. Let me think about that a little. But for sure the game itself has to be 2D.

I'm in! I love computer table tennis games. So it would be nice opportunity to create my own one.

Is this restricted to games create using code only or can we use tools such as Construct2 or GameMaker or the like?

Please see addendum above.

 

@spirwell - Only the game itself has to be 2D. Menus, logos can be 3D or 2.5D.

How about adding WindowsPhone to the list of allowed platforms?

I have one (dev unlocked) and would be available as judge.

Sure, I'll allow Windows Phone 7 or 8. But the person/team should probably have a Silverlight or WPF or XNA or Win8 app as well just in case.

Oh, I'm assuming it's okay to use 3d models,etc. (For shadows, aesthetics, etc.) providing you're only moving on 2 axes?

It can be a 3D engine as long as the game is strictly in the 2D view.

Any sort of prize being considered for this? (other than the experience I mentioned above, lol)

So the rules for table and net are excluded (because of the 2d movement?) 

 

 

Basically, we're making a personalized version of the most highly recommended "first game" a beginning developer should make, Pong.

 

So no, table and net are NOT necessary.

Alright, all the rules are in place!

 

Start designing, strategizing, getting your teams together, searching for resources, etc.
