I reckon it's ok if you're the main character, especially if you don't feel comfortable making a game about somebody else.

I couldn't tell you if mixing characters is ok. It depends on what you do, I suppose. If you made something like AGS-Man - a single character with recognisable features of various members of the community, that could turn out as an excellent entry.

Instead, if you mix a couple of members nobody knows much about, then your character will be hardly recognisable, and thus you wouldn't be playing by the rules.

It's up to you. In the end, votes will decide.

--> GAMES IN BY THE FINAL DEADLINE OF 25TH JULY
When I was a little kid we had a sand box. It was a quicksand box. I was an only child... eventually.

I think I might join this one. I always wanted to make a game starring me. Although it would be short and take place in my own house.

It will have realistic photo's as graphics. Sort of how toonstruck was, just more so.

heres a few shots from my MAGS game, based on Trapezoid's kittie cam thread, your quest is to save 3 kittens which have escaped, and don't really want to go back to mummy puss!

as you can see the scaling wants some work, and to get rid of the white halo i seem to get cursed with every time! amazingly i've done the script side with the help of a few members, thanks ;D

my first game with sound, featuring "love cats" from "the cure" (who the feck are they?!, i can hear the young uns say,lol) plus sound effects from kittens to chainsaws  :-\, also creditz, and a intro, the main character is from eric's tutorial , with trap's av. image, if  i have time i'll expand on that as well

its probably going to be a bit easy to do, but what the hell. i like it, i'll do some final tweaking and it'll be on display for all to see early next week ;D

whens the dead line? 25th?

Paranoia

edit: ffs Paranoia, learn to scroll! yes the dead line is the 25TH lol DOH!

EVERY TIME I LEARN SOMETHING NEW IT PUSHES SOME  OLD STUFF OUT OF MY BRAIN!

With a game called Pussie Hunt, you can be sure that m0ds will play it, although by your description, I'm sure he will be sorely dissapointed.

Well, "...make your choice right here" stands for to make your choice right here :)

Vel and Paranoia presented the download links to their games only in the Completed Game Announcements Forum. Perhaps this might have caused some confusion..? So for further competitions please keep in mind to also post entries to the current MAGS thread. Thanks.

Accidental clicks on the admin log don't matter - as long as they are accidental. ;)

As Magintz is having fun at Mittens at the moment it is on me now to say "voting is over" :)

For a long time in the beginning there was an almost equal number of votes for both entries - a change of the leading game with every new voice. But one finally made it to be a clear winner in the end and so here we go:

The winner of the MAGS competition July 2003 is
Spoiler: ShowHide
RECESS by Velislav Ivanov. Congratulations. Vel, please check your private messages.
