8:07 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story
Puppy Games, creators of shareware games like Titan Attacks and Tribal Trouble, have announced they are hosting a Java-based game contest open to all programmers. The contest hopes to promote Java development and gaming on Windows, Linux, and Macintosh platforms. This year's theme is "subterranean" and submissions are due on April 30, 2006 with a cash prize of $100 for the winning entry.
Here are some of the contest's rules and requirements:
There are no restrictions at all on file size, library use, language, etc. Use the tool that works best for you!Please follow the link below to learn more about this contest.
The theme for the game submission is digging, tunnels, earth, channels, dirt.
Scoring is based in equal weights on graphics, sound, polish, fun and is multiplied by the number of judging machines the game successfully runs on and then further multiplied by your theme ranking which is how well you adhered to the theme (and thatíll prevent you from just slapping a title on a game you already had like ďDiggerĒ and winning on graphics and sound you developed over a four year period )
Scoring in each category is simply by rank against all the other games.
First prize is a paltry $100 PayPalled to you. So enter for the glory and donít waste too much time on it eh?
Donít use any material you do not have the right to redistribute, or you will be disqualified, if we find out (Remember, there are more points available for polish, fun, and theme than graphics and sound so donít waste too much time on graphics and sound!)
Ladies and gentlemen, start your engines!
