Design
a
CONTEST!



NOTE: VOTING ENDS DECEMBER 2ND!






WE'RE MAKING A CONTEST

And you get to vote on the theme and the prizes (which are going to be upcoming or newly released video games)!



HOW ARE WE GOING TO DO WHAT I DON'T

You had a few days to nominate what you want and how you want to get it. We're take the ones that seem like the most fun/best ones etc. and letting you vote for them.

We're going to be offering a digital download of a game (or possibly a hard-copy order, details will follow on that if need be). You guys need to pick what games you're excited about so you can get it for free.

We also want a theme for the contest so you'll be working on something the community will be hyped about. What will it be for? A game? An art contest? A music contest? You don't know! We just want a theme for a thing that you will do! Vote vote!



WHAT WERE THE RULES FOR NOMINATIONS

For GAMES:
- For NON-INDIE GAMES (e.g., games by Blizzard, Valve, Squeenix, etc.), it must be a game with a release date of November 1st, 2010 -through- January 30th, 2011.
- For INDIE GAMES (e.g., Samarost titles, Minecraft, flash games, etc.), it must be a game that costs money to download. Release date doesn't matter.

For THEMES:
- Nothing pornographic or adult-related (including obvious innuendos or curse words).
- Can be meme-related so long as it's an HBGames meme.
- Can be a person, place, thing, or concept. (e.g., Charles Barkley, Your Attic, A Plush Godzilla Toy, Friendship)
- Should be something you think people of this community would get excited about.






HOW DO I NOMINATE?

Nominating is closed! Vote vote vote!
Please make sure you vote for THREE games and ONE theme, not 4 games or 4 themes, etc.
Don't break the vote :O

Oh man, choosing between those themes was difficult. I went with nuclear winter in the end, but they all sound like a lot of fun!

i thought luchadores was a p cute theme idea.

i'm also surprised by people being so excited about fallout:nv over cataclysm.

i should have put more indie titles in there too even though they weren't nom'd. well, i might offer them anyway and pay for them myself if xmas doesn't tap me out.

i'm interested to know what indie titles (up to $15) you'd pick.

minecraft?
joe danger?
trine?
torchlight?
super meat boy?
emberwind?
machinarium?
clickr?
mon & bot?
others (specify)?

we're an indie games site that doesn't support indie games?
c'monnn

The only games I'm interested in on that list are Minecraft, Joe Danger (Played the demo, it's great!) and Machinarium, I either own or don't care about the others, lol.

You're absolutely right. We're bad people :o:

I nominate Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale

An intriguing Indie RPG now available on Steam, since HBGames loves the RPGs.

Dunno much bout indie titles, but I can tell you why so few people want WOW Cataclysm...

I don't own WOW, so an expansion pack would be p. useless to me, considering I do not own, nor have ever played the game, and I'm sure there's others out there like me.

Minecraft is pretty excellent, Machinarium is beautiful, and I've heard that Super Meat Boy is really fun.

and sorry I guess that most people here don't play WoW! if this was about a month ago I'd be all over it but honestly not nowadays.

wow: cataclysm is $30 and base-game wow is about $15 so actually if that were the grand prize and you didn't have the base game we'd probably foot the bill for the base game, too.

but if you HAVE the base game, then that saved money's an indie game you or someone else could get!

Meh I've got Cataclysm preordered anyways, going to pick it up at midnight with my mates, lol.

If I were to buy an indie game from that list, it'd be hands down Minecraft, it's got so much buzz and the free version is pretty fun, I'd love to experience the real deal lol, I'll have to buy it someday actually, hopefully before beta so I don't have to pay as much.

I'm with Plague on this one. Nuclear Winter brings up a lot of cool ideas in my mind, that I would never usually contemplate. I would love to see what people can produce with that theme.

Just as a general hint on the subject... a contest design thing is pretty good, however when I first read this, I was thinking that more than a random theme would have to be submitted... I mean, a theme is a theme, not an 'idea' really... and definately not a contest design.
Good contests consist of a task at hand, not a theme - "design a nuclear winter game" is much much different from "create a game that revolves around special system designed to help survival in nuclear winter", which could lead to something as the radiation-level-displaying Pip-Boy from Fallout 3 (taking an existant example in case the nuclear winter theme wins... don't want to spoil any contestivity). This way, there'd be an objective to reach, and results would be more interestingly compareable; and you could say "okay, a radiation display is cool for survival, but there could be something more actively helpful".

However I'm not trying to get anyone down or say the contest won't be a cool thing... just saying what I'd like to see in the next installation of this (if it turns out any successful) for feedback reasons. In that sense: Have fun!

Except with this approach, it allows people a lot more creative freedom, which is what the site is all about. Could be a game, a painting, a piece of music... anything. And we're free to convey the theme in a variety of different ways. It's more fun to work with, and a lot more enjoyable to see what everyone comes up with.

I haven't said what it's going to be yet; you are making assumptions ~

Also, like Silver said, if you make the theme/goal too narrow, it hinders creativity.

Like when you think "folklore", the interpretation can be rather loose, and you drum up all kinds of ideas. You could make a game about an ancient African tale on the Sahara. Or you could write a song about Davey Jones' Locker. Or you could make a sweet flash video about Babe the Blue Ox ... Lots of options.

If I said you have to "make an action platformer set in medieval Europe involving dragon-slaying" ... Well, that's rather limiting!
And some people aren't too interested in dragons, so we'd lose participation based on lack of enthusiasm. You can only really narrow your expectations when you have the sheer volume of participants to be picky.


The theme is more about a loose assurance that you're starting from scratch, so the playing field is more level. There will be one other stipulation I haven't mentioned yet ;o


Well anyway, I've extended the voting deadline by 1 more day.
Mostly because I've been slammed with work and have to go on a dinner cruise tonight.

So you have until sometime tonight EST to vote!

We still have a 2-way tie, people!
