-- contest poster by KniteBlargh
Game Jolt's fifth contest is now up and running! Don't forget to check the rules and details below, and give it all you've got!
The contest will run for one week starting July 1, 2010 and finishing at midnight on July 8, 2010 Eastern US Time. (view the end time in your timezone)
For anybody confused, those are the midnights between 30th June / 1st July, and between 7th July / 8th July.
The theme is Indie Game Demake!
Definition: An already released indie game (of your choice) that, instead of being remade and improved, is demade and simplified so as to seem like the version that would have been released at some point in time before the original game.
To help better explain this theme, you may find it useful to check out TIGSource's Bootleg Demake compo that they ran a while ago. Although they allowed demakes of commercial games like the Mario series, which we're not doing here, it should help to give you all an idea of what you can do with a demake, and that it really doesn't limit your creativity, or the originality of your resulting game.
Three winners will be picked. All three will be featured on the front page of the site. The first place winner will win a free single game of their choosing from Steam (no packs), and also choose from one of KniteBlargh's Game Jolt T-shirt designs (see here)! All contestants will also receive a "Generally Good Time" -- courtesy of Game Jolt.
- Your entry must not be a demake of one of your own games, but a demake of an indie game made by someone else.
- Your entry must be an original game created just for this contest.
- Your entry must relate to the chosen theme. It must be a demake of an actual, real indie game.
- Collaborations are fine. Go for it with someone else! We like team work!
- Multiple games can be submitted. (You can not place more than once, though. If you get first place with one game, you won't get second or third with another)
- There are no restrictions on creation tools, libraries, file sizes or anything like that. We like diversity. Make it in Flash, make it in Construct, code it up from scratch yourself, we don't care.
- Pre-existing game engines are acceptable.
- You're encouraged to place the contest poster in your game, although it's definitely not a requirement.
For those of you that are in the achievements closed beta, please feel free to add trophies to your contest entries, but be aware that doing so will not affect the judging process, because not everyone is able to enjoy acquiring trophies at this time.
How to Enter:
To enter your game into the contest, you must upload the game to the main site. After doing that, reply to this forum post with the URL to your game and a URL to the game that you demade.
These are the people that will be judging the contest. Feel free to bribe them.
We'd love some help in spreading the news. If you frequent any forums, or know of/own any blogs, it'd be great if you posted news about the contest. This site will only get bigger with support from YOU. If you've posted it in your blog or in a forum, or know of any site that has, you may post the URL to the site in this thread: http://gamejolt.com/community/forums/topics/spread-the-word-game-jolt-contest-5/568/
