Not sure how many folks around here dabble in FreeBasic for game development. I'm sure it's a minority. : )
In case you don't frequent the community forums, there's a FBGD competition going on from now until January 17th with a $200 1st prize and $100 2nd prize (mostly to encourage those of us on the sidelines to dust off our keyboards and get back to coding).
Lachie does these competitions every now and then to boost the FB game development scene, with the competitions producing some very enjoyable games in the past. For more information, follow the thread in the FBGD forums:http://games.freebasic.net/forum/index.php?topic=458.0
The gist of the competition is to combine two styles of gameplay into a single game, much like what Tile Massacre SHMUP did for last year's Assemblee: Part 2 competition. If we get even one game of that quality in the mix, I'd consider it a success. :D
