Second SCI Game Contest!
« on: February 03, 2007, 05:59:51 PM »
Alright! Welcome to round Two of the SCI Game Contest!

The Game:
- In "Groundhog's Day" style you are trapped replaying the same day over and over.

The Rules:- 1 room (min and max) - other rooms can be used for intro and ending (but ONE live-action game room).

- As many Characters as you like (minimum 1, "the ego")

- The room must reset itself at regular intervals (this can be time specific or activated). When the room resets, something can be different.

Ending time is one month from today: MARCH 3rd

Any questions? just ask?

Man Doan, that's a tough one. I have an idea, but I'm struggling with the plot and look. We'll see if I can pull something together for this one, I'm not sure yet if I can  :-\

I do have a clarification though, when you say one playable room, what constitutes a room. one background and/or one script? And can it be supplemented midplay with non-playable cutscenes.

Sorry if it's tough...it was tough for me to think up something! I would say you can go crazy on the cut scenes if you want to.

The angle I took with my game has made it pretty dark. Not dark like in a good way either. I'm not sure if I can get it done that it would even be amusing to play.  :-\

So how are the games going?

There is still plenty of time if you haven't gotten anything worked on yet.

Cloudee1, there is no rule that the game cannot be dark...one of my favorite games is dark (Silent Hill 2) - The fun-aspect of dark games is altogether different than what we are used to from SCI games, but hey, a different fun is still fun.

I've officially scrapped the first game I was doing for this competition. Remember I said it was dark, not in a good way. Besides that I kind of worked myself into a corner with the story line and refused to find my way back out of it.

Never fear though, I have started another game for this competition. I wasn't sure if I was going to have time, but I'm going to try and make time. Realisticaly I have already finished more of the second game than I did for the first, and I need a lot less, so progress is good  ;)  I wish I would have decided this two weeks ago though.

Aquarius

Scripting: 99.2% complete
Sprites: 98.9% complete
Backgrounds: 75% complete
Music: .02%

Shouldn't have any trouble finishing up what has to be finished up. The majority of my .8% left to script involves adding the music play to the rooms init, and I've got two cels left to draw.   ;D

Alright, check the games page. You should find a new game there to download.  ;)

I definately couldn't think outside the box much this month, nothing to impressive as far as the competition theme, I bent the rules a little bit in that it's technically not the same day, but every day is the same day when you're a goldfish. And the room doesn't technically reset, but all of the variables that recognise what day it is do so...

Anyway, it's done, it's available. Aquarius: An Aquatic Experience.

Three days isn't too shabby really. I've had goldfish survive less, so you are at least doing better than they did.  :P

It's been a loooong time since I have seen day 5.
