  • Anything else showing the chosen feature that's suitable for video format!

How do I record something on my computer?

If you haven't already got screen recording software, you might want to take a look at Camtasia. It's a great screen recording software that has a free 30 day trial.

What will we be judging on?

The judges (Tom and Ash) are looking for videos which are either exciting, creative or informative. (You don't have to score well in all three, just one!)


  • Videos have to be in English (unfortunately both judges are English and we couldn't fairly judge non-english entries)
  • Up to 3 entries per user
  • Closing date for entries is 18th July, 2012
  • Video must not infringe anyone's copyright
  • Video must not contain profanities or any other content not suitable for a wide audience (at judge's discretion)
  • If for various reasons prizes cannot be shipped to the winners of the competition at reasonable delivery cost (unsupported delivery destination/out of stock etc), something of similar value will be given to the winners
  • We are not responsible for any damage/injury/liability caused by any of the prizes. If you are under 18 years old, you must seek explicit permission from your parents before using any of the prizes.
  • These rules may change/have additions before the closing date
  • The judge's decision is final
Now follow us and share this

Love the freedom this new competition gives to the participants. The video twist is also great to see, this should create tons of reference material for creating games with Construct 2!

Ooh, sounds very interesting...
I've never tried making videos before, though, so I'd have to have a think about how I'd go about doing it.

Interesting! I will probably participate in this one. I'm hoping to buy a 4G iPod touch in a few months, but getting one for free would be even better. :D

Being one of the priveleged few to be in posession of a flying monkey from Scirra, I can certainy say that This competition is definitely one to go for.

Awesome idea. :D

I don't know if I can win it or not, but the real prize for would be the business edition of C2.^^
Even if we don't win anything it's going to be great promotional material. :)
