Sorry for the late announce. When we (microman, appolonius, and I) came up with the contest, elysiun was out of commision. I posted at blender.org, as well as blendergames.com, but those of you who mainly only read here may have missed it.
The GOAL of the contest is to have fun, learn about the game engine, and come up with new and original ideas while under a tight time pressure.
To facilitiate the creative process, the games must all be of a certain topic. I don’t know what genre you’ll choose, but the topic is: “games with balls”. So far I’ve had GOBS of fun with my game, its coming along really nice. I hope we get a lot of submissions, and everyone will be eligible to vote.
