This is a TIGSource TIGER Assault Free Form Competition.

What is TIGSource?  You're sitting in it.

What is TIGER Assault?  TIGER Assaults are short competitions based around a particular theme.  The emphasis is on collaboration, sharing, and, most of all, the completion of projects.  I.e., it's an exercise in making small, tight, enjoyable/interesting games that can be played from beginning to end.  There are no prizes involved.

What is Free Form?  Any format goes!  But the game should at least run on Win32 platforms.



The theme of the game is H.P. Lovecraft's Commonplace Book.  This was a notebook in which Lovecraft jotted down his various ideas, many of them disjointed and cryptic; most of these musings never became real stories.

You goal is to create a game based on one of these ideas.  You can find them here.

Start Date: Friday, October 17th

End Date: Friday, November 28th (Around Midnight)

Rules:

- Entries should be started and ended within the time frame of the competition to be considered for judging (but it's OKAY if you start thinking/prototyping a bit earlier).

- Using pre-existing game engines is OKAY.

- Entries must be made for the competition only (but you can do whatever you wish with them once they're finished).

- Collaborations are allowed and, in fact, are welcomed.

- As usual, you may start a thread to track the development of your game!  Be sure to select the "Commonplace Book" message icon to accompany your post.

- You may submit more than one game.

- Submit your game by declaring "FINISHED" on your game's thread.  Include the download link to the latest version of the game somewhere where I can find it.

Let's do it! Evil

On second thought, if someone has a relatively not-huge idea I may be able to provide some graphics. I haven't got enough free time now to do a ton of pixels for a larger game though.

Damn damn damn!  I thought this was starting on the 31st.  I haven't gotten my current projects squared away.

Oh well, looks like I'm just going to drop them where they are.  Though if I can't come up with a suitable idea within the next 24 hours I probably won't even try.  Based on past compo experiences I'll need every spare moment I can get.

I'm intrigued, but unsure if I have the time or the ideas. I'll have to read through that list and see if I get inspired.

Man, I sure wish the competition didn't directly coincide with my final two weeks of university.

Well, I might throw my hat into the right for this. I really like a lot of the ideas in the Commonplace book.

Well, I hope you're happy.  Now you've got me joining the forums instead of just lurking, and planning to publically release a game for the first time in my life.

"96    Daemons, when desiring an human form for evil purposes, take to themselves the bodies of hanged men."
even Lovecraft must have got desperate at times.

anyway, it's a very short timespan in a very busy time of my life... I'll see what I can do.
