I’ll release more info as I get it together and organize it better as it comes together, but here’s what we’ve got so far.
The event will begin Friday March 10th and run through Friday March 17th. Every participant is allowed to select their own start date and time as long as it falls within the event schedule.
Participants will have 96 hours to produce a fully complete game, including sound effects, visuals and programming.
Pre existing assets tools and libraries are allowed to be used, as long as they are publicly available.
Each participant will be given their own set of 3 guidelines, which will include a theme and a setting. For example: “tanks” and “underwater”. Interpretation of the 3 guidelines is up to the participant, but they are required to justify and define their use of each.
Scoring will be done for the following categories:
Ease of Use - can the game be picked up and played with no guidance, if not is the guidance intuitive and does it do a good job of teaching the player
Gameplay - is the game smooth and does it feel good? Did the participant take care to create a polished game?
Fun - Is the game enjoyable? Does it leave the player wanting to play again?
Sound - does the game have sound effects? If so are they uniform and do they make sense for where they’re used?
Music - does the game have music? If so, does it sound good and make sense for it’s use?
Visuals - does the pixel art reflect the games theme? Does it’s use make sense? If visual effects are present, do they fit their intended use?
Judges will consist of members of the byond community, as well as a few people from outside of our community, including an indie game streamer and my sound and music team from Hazordhu.
The prize pool so far includes $100 USD and a BYOND membership.
If you’d like to participate, donate to the prize pool, or judge, throw your hat in here or feel free to shoot me a DM.
This event is being put on by moi. It is not endorsed by BYOND
