One Buck Challenge - June

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Fri May 13, 2011 6:21 pm

For those who almost drown in their own creativity, for my first OBC, you're challenged to make a short game based on the "No man's land" theme. Any genre allowed. Construct Classic only for now.

[u:2vmw5hfo]Needed files[/u:2vmw5hfo]: Provide a working .exe only. No source required.

[u:2vmw5hfo]Theme[/u:2vmw5hfo]: "No man's land" refers to a place, zone or area where you shouldn't be. Usually, those places are somewhat unhealthy.. So the theme is not "A dangerous area" but your own interpretation of No man's land.

[u:2vmw5hfo]End[/u:2vmw5hfo]: You have until June 19th 23:59 to submit. Vote will run until June 24th 23:59. (GMT)
After upload, make sure the download link works.

[u:2vmw5hfo]Rule[/u:2vmw5hfo]: Made in a single layout.

[u:2vmw5hfo]Prizes[/u:2vmw5hfo]:
-One Buck! (via PayPal)
-A brand new forum avatar courtesy of [u:2vmw5hfo]procrastinator[/u:2vmw5hfo]
[code:2vmw5hfo]If Ashley.Accept(Procrastinator.Bribe(2)) == False Then
Procrastinator.NewAvatar(EntryRank[2])
Else
Procrastinator.NewAvatar(self)
Procrastinator.Money += 1[/code:2vmw5hfo]

[u:2vmw5hfo]Post[/u:2vmw5hfo]: Please post a single post per entry (multiple entries allowed) Just edit your post to update game status. Games will be judged with latest version available in your post.

To make sure I won't forget any entry, add the tag [u:2vmw5hfo]OBC ENTRY - YourGameTitle[/u:2vmw5hfo] at the top of your entry post.

For clarification, could you describe the theme a bit more? I'm being a bit slow today.

[quote="Wikipedia":x1r6nre3]It is most commonly associated with the First World War to describe the area of land between two enemy trenches[/quote:x1r6nre3]
See here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/No_man's_land - usually it refers to the land in the middle of a battle, which neither side has conquered yet, so it doesn't belong to anyone (no man).

And maybe because "no man" would be foolish enough to set foot out there between the trenches? :P

Yeah that's what I meant by "where you shouldn't be" and "somewhat unhealthy". :lol:

When it comes to urban area, it can be qualified as a sniper playground like in Enemy At The Gates.

I'll add an additional "prize" (if you want to call it that).. I'll draw you your own personal avatar for these forums up to a size of 100x100 (not animated - see after closing bracket why) to get over my procrastinating. If I enter and *win (ahem) then woohoo I can draw myself a new avetahr! Nah I'll draw the runner up's of course....

*Obviously I will win 'cause I'll just pay Djordhan $2 to let me win!! Oh wait it's based on votes? $2 coming your way Ashley!

I'll quote from the OP "your own interpretation of No man's land." Could be Limbo :) Could be Another World. Could be Vagnok, the place where even demons have nightmares. Just think of somewhere you'd rather not be I guess ;)
