Thought some of the people on this board would like to join in on the new TIGSource competition:
Basically, you choose any fake box art from anywhere such as: Famicase 2008Famicase 2009Famicase 2010http://fx.worth1000.com/contests/11213/beta-busts-5http://mightygodking.com/index.php/2008/04/21/fun-from-yesterday/?
or anywhere else, and create a game inspired by that case art. The famicase stuff is especially cool with lots of inspiration to be had.
I definitely think AGS folk could make a bit of a showing in the competition. Back Door Man, I believe, tied for second (?) in the last TIGS compo, so maybe somebody can have similar luck. Regardless, it's a good excuse to just hunker down and finish something!
The competition runs through July 31! All information here
. A ton of people have started posting about their entries here
I've started my own small hour-a-day project for the game to blow off a little pent up creative steam. Thread is here
. Hope to see some AGSers join in! Show off our beloved engine a bit!
Also, you could totally wait to start until the OROW and do a game for both compos at once!
