HBGames Holiday Contest 2010

Week 4: Game Making



Image

Main contest thread is here.


The foundation of the site. Making a decent, original concept is something that is very hard to day. Laying out all of the brickwork and ideas into a cohesive plot is difficult.




What are the challenges this week?
Participate in challenges pertaining to making games which coincide with one of the three themes!

I can't do the above?
There are other ways to gain points like participation points (critiquing others' work). But give it your best anyway-- you can't improve unless you try, and some points are better than none!








Image

This week's challenges are:


  • Assemble a topic suitable for Completed Games based on a fictional game you will pretend you've created. Must adhere to Completed Games forum rules. Cannot make thread on an actual game or any real concept or in-progress project. "Screenshots" must be original, but you can use whatever software you like to compile them, and un-original content for them Score based on impressiveness, quality of thread design, adherence to theme, thread content, originality of "game".
    Possible 15pts, plus possible 5 bonus points for each fictional, original "screenshot" (up to +25 bonus pts).
  • Assemble a topic suitable for Concept Development based on a game you will pretend you're creating. Must adhere to Concept Development forum rules. Cannot make thread on an actual game/concept that already exists. No images. Score based on readability of thread, adherence to theme, thread content, concept content. Possible 15pts.
Again, every submission must relate to at least one of the three themes.

You are expected to submit quality work. We may or may not accept submissions depending on what you turn in. Forum rules apply to contest. Best submission of this week earns 10 bonus points. Second place earns 5. Remember to critique.




What are bonus points?
Bonus points are points awarded for certain accomplishments. These include: best submission of the week (staff pick), and best submission overall.

What are participation points?
Participation points are an alternative solution to the participating in the contest. Instead of having a contest board with all the submissions posted together, you instead post in the corresponding board: art goes in art board, music goes in music board, etc. When posted, members are allowed to critique your work which allows them to earn participation points if their critique is well thought out.

What defines a good critique?
A good critique is a critique that is around a few good sentences that not only go in depth in explaining what, but also bring up new, solid points as well. This includes leetspeak and spelling. Make sure to sound educated when giving a critique.

Can I submit as many submissions as I want?
Yes. And you may also submit for the same challenge as well.








Image

Please submit works in the corresponding boards: art with visual art board, pixel art in pixel art board, etc. Make sure to post links of the submissions here in this thread. Use Sub topic icon when submitting. Failure to abide may result in submission being void. Once submitted you may not change the submission. Do not make separate threads for WIPS and submissions.












Image

My question was not answered what do I do?
Post in this thread and ask.


Are there any other alternatives?
You can PM bacon and we will answer it as soon as possible.

When does it end?
Saturday, February 5th. Sorry for the delays and stuff. x:
