Remember, the game doesn't necessarily need to be your ultimate brainchild or the coup de grace of all games you have ever wished to make.
We're only looking for a game -- with a beginning, middle, and end. If you can mash the buttons and make shit happen, and it sums up at the end with credits or "THE END" or something, well now that's a contest entry.
Of course, you may not WIN if you only do something really simple and small, but it's better than not entering at all!
We're a game making forum; show us your chops!!
One question: If we use engines created for Construct Classic/2 in our game that were developed before March 3rd, 2012, are we allowed to use them?
I am not sure what you mean. You have to use C2 Free edition (not Classic). And that's the engine ...
Are you talking about plugins or other resources you use to add features etc. to the game?
Yes, you are allowed to use plugins or resources or mechanics that were created before March 3rd.
use these things, but you'll earn more points by making things from scratch.
EDIT: Hey, does anyone know if I can find sprites for heroes and enemies in the resource section?
If so, I'll be heading there soon. Right now, I'm only aware that they host RPG Maker resources there.
There's all KINDS of stuff in the resources section. Years and years of stuff, if you search.
If that fails you, feel free to rip graphics too. Whatever helps you finish this badboy before the 1st.
