HBGames.org's BUILD & WIN Construct 2 Contest

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Wed Mar 07, 2012 8:48 pm

Hello there, Scirra Forum!

I'm Venetia, an administrator at HBGames.org. We're a site that's all about indie game development. For nearly a decade (under RMXP.NET and RMXP.ORG in the past), we focused mainly on the RPG Maker series of engines.

Recently, our staff have fallen in love with Construct 2, and to kick off a format shift, we're holding a pretty big "BUILD & WIN" contest.

(We made sure to run it by Tom & Ashley first!)



Click here for the topic!


On behalf of HBGames.org, I'd like to invite all the members of the Scirra.com forum to participate in the contest.

Twelve copies of C2's Standard License will be given out to the top games for free!

In addition, 1st prize will win $300, 2nd wins $150, and 3rd wins $75!


There are no stipulations really on what KIND of game to make -- just make it with the Free edition of C2, and don't submit anything whose production was started before March 3rd, 2012. You also have to join to win (because you'll need to advertise your game to draw attention to it and to post it for judge review in the Construct 2 board).

We're hopefully going to be turning a newcomer or two (or, many) onto the engine you all already know so well! Expect some of our members to be showing up here, and please don't be shy about introducing yourself there.


Thanks hugely for your time, and let me know if you have any questions! I can answer them either on this topic, or at the topic on HBGames (but please check out the full HBG contest topic first--it has WAY more information!).

One more time, the link is: http://www.hbgames.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=293&t=76238


Good luck, and thanks again! We hope this will be the beginning to a beautiful friendship ~ !Venetia2012-03-07 20:52:09

AWESOME! We'll probably have many competitors, as i've already noticed many "i'm in" at HBGames's forum ;D

AND YEAH, COUNT ME IN.

@Venetia
We use Dropbox for sandboxing, etc.
No need for uploading that way.

@newt:
That was mentioned in the forum topic ... But some of our members were iffy, so I offered to host games on my own site in addition, to quell any fears or worries about hosting issues :).

@Cassiano & Sagal:
Looking forward to seeing your entries!!

I already have a standard license, but it's nice to read that there will be even greater. Hell, we must support those who will participate in the contest. And we will do it.
