Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Sep 18, 2013 8:15 pm

@tulamide I'm hosting it .. If Scirra doesn't ... There's no site, There's no name for the competition .. But i wanted to see other people's suggestions ..
If Scirra doesn't host it on their site i will host it on a free weebly domain or i will find something out ...
And i will Make badges and stuff if i can ...
It doesn't have to be official but if it was in Scirra's site it will gain more attention ...

I think the point of the themes is to keep people from posting their old stuff claiming it was created in the time frame. You'll lose participants if they think their 3 day game has to compete with 3 week games.

Well .. It's good to have themes ..
Here's the post .. I was asking you guys for few things before starting ...
Like :
Themes : Suggest yours
Other things you can choose the best thing from so in the more info part write the same things but change what you don't want like this :

Starts every : 1 week
Time allowed to make your mini-game : 2 days
Themes : Suggest yours

And that's my decision .. What's yours?

A weekly competition is going to be a pain to manage and judge, even if you make it a matter of public voting. I'd strongly suggest doing it every second week at the most.

In terms of themes, I've found the ones that work well are vague enough to be bent into shape, yet simple enough to be inspiring for many people (like "repetition", "invasion", "containers", or "town"). Either that, or implement interesting mechanical constraints (like "two buttons only" or "no solid objects") and let people decide the themes for themselves.

PS: Idea generators like Gigster are a great place to start.GeometriX2013-09-18 21:49:33

I think it would be a great idea to have mechanics as the focus. Say, try to make the best experience/levelling system or best RTS controls.

I say this because people here could really benefit from seeing how everyone goes about things. Since the competition would be for people only using C2, everyone could understand each other's work and really learn some stuff. It could also help form some standards for C2 use.

I think this way is just much better, as there are many game comps already and a few days to a week isn't enough to make a truly impressive game. But is enough to make a sleek, efficient mechanic with a basic example.

If you wanted a site, just use facebook. no need to go overboard with an entire front side.
