With increasing browser support for HTML5, and the recent news about Flash and Silverlight, it is a perfect time to encourage the development of games using Scirra's Construct 2. And of course shamelessly promote and improve the services of Fun Chowder Games. :)
The theme of the competition is "Reclamation" (as in to reclaim something). This is a pretty broad topic, for example this includes, but is not limited to: something lost or stolen... an object, memories, mojo, person, etc...
Primary Competition: Themed
Closes: December 23rd, 11:59pm GMT
Design a game in Construct 2 with the 'Reclamation' theme. All game assets (art assets, sound effects, music, etc...) must either be created by the etrant, or used with permission (e.g. Scirra Spite Packs).
Both early-adopters and free license users are welcome to enter the competition, there are however certain advantages in scope by having an early-adopters license.
Everyone can submit up to 2 entries for the themed competition. The number is limited because we want to encourage the development of polished and complete games, or at least what could pass as complete. Please do not entre demos into the competition, but feel free to post your works in progress on the forums. (perhaps start a forum thread for everyone to share their works in progress).
Secondary Competition: Free for all
Closes: December 2nd, 11:59pm GMT
Only a single entry with the same rules as above, however you are not bound by a theme. At the moment there will be no prize giveaways for this competition except for the prestige of winning.
Only two winners, one chosen by us, and the other chosen by the fans.
Note: Games completed before November 11th, 2011 are not eligible.
All entrants give the unlimted right to Fun Chowder Games Ltd. to use any and all material submitted in the Fun Chowder Game Competition: "Reclamation" for promotional purposes. All material remains the property of their respective owners.
Amazon vouchers will be emailed to their respective recipients. The voucher will be provided in your equivalent native currency. Fun Chowder Games Ltd. reserves the right to exchange prizes to other items of roughly equal value if there is difficulty in providing said prizes.
Edit: Changed deadlines to GMT
