Construct It, is a large collaboration being organized by @InvaderX @PixelPalette @DravenX and @EncryptedCow.
The purpose is to have a fun development experience, where we as the community share and play our creative ideas in a retro mini game mash up. It's strictly volunteer work, in which the final game will be provided for free on the Scirra arcade.

The requirements are:

- The minigame must use a window size of 640x480.
- It must use only 1 layout and event sheet.
- Minigames should be endless-score based games.
- These plugins cannot be used: facebook, kongregate, windows 8, cocoonjs, appmobi, browser, ajax, user media, xml, touch, or any third party plugins.
- Minigames must be rated G - PG13. this means no vulgar language and minimal amounts of blood.

You can email your minigames to encryptedcow@gmail.com and we will present them for a vote, to pick which ones will make it into first
game compilation.

All entries must be turned in by January 31st 2013 and no later.

Please format the subject as such:

Well I think you need to leave a little more information than what you have started with.
Such as it is to be a community game, for no profit, and where it is to be displayed.

I should also add that these minigames are prototypes to be polished later for a final project. So do not worry about how it looks! Just the basic idea and our helpers will turn it into a polish, cohesive experience for the user.

Ok, thanks, but "all developers will be giving up their minigames for use in this collaberation" is a bit off don't you think?
That sounds like they will be giving up any rights to the games, when all they are really doing is giving you permission to publish the games.

Anyway, good luck.
