So TIGS has had some really sweet compo's over the years, and a lot of us never got to partake in them for a variety of reasons (a lot of us just weren't here; I actually found this site because of the VGNG compo).  I remember awhile when talking about new compos some TIGers even wanted to have, say, B-Games 2 just so that they could try that cool compo idea.

So I figure why not just make games for the compos we wished we'd been able to enter?  There's nothing stopping us, and I think it would be good fun (as we're making games on a topic we want to make games on).

My current game would have fit nicely in the Procedural Generation Compo, so I guess it'll be my late entry to that.

HOLY SHIT GUYS LETS ALL GO MAKE B-GAMES!!!  :D :D :D

Interesting idea. The thing about compos though is the fact that everybody is doing things on the same theme, there's more cotivation because everybody's into it and checking out stuff. It's another atmosphere you don't usually get just from working on something by yourself.

That's why most people ask to repeat the best compos, because they'd get that kind of atmosphere again around here.

Wasn't it decided that the B-Games compo was going to be annual?

Huh, really?  I guess I haven't been in the "recommend compos" thread for awhile, so I guess I missed that.

I agree about the atmosphere; ahh well...

I have in the past thought about making a VGNG game a month or something, or a new b-game. This is a cool idea IMO.

I was ponderng doing a game for each compo I couldn't enter (meaning, each one of them). So if a bunch of people decide to do the same, it'd be awesome.

Yeah, I'd be up for doing a few. Probably not all of them though, but whichever ones catch my fancy

Just make the next one follow all the rules of past compos, and there you go.  I don't think any rules contradict each other.

The demakes compo is such a good idea that it should probably be repeated every year. So long as companies keep making games, we will have source material.

A compo where the goal is to make a game that fits into at least two of the categories of previous TIGS compos?

I keep trying to promote this. Idea gels very well with me.

WAIT: Oops, not really. I was thinking more of a "cover version" compo, where you'd take someone else's old entry and re-do it in another style. But a compo-mix compo would also be kinda cool.

Reading the word compo so many times gets me excited. When will the next one (of any flavor) start?

I want in.

Great idea YMM! (and Gainsworthy!)

And since when did this topic become active again; I'd already hit the point of feeling stupid for creating it and letting the idea fall by the wayside.  :D

Hey, I liked the original idea!  I still have a bunch of games for old compos bouncing around.  Actually, A Tale of Two Santas was going to be my Text the Halls Entry ... although it might be a bit hard to see how it relates to IF now ...

Sounds neat!  Glad to hear you liked the idea, too.

...sorry   Panda

What for?

I discovered the site through the VGNG compo abour 3 days before it was due to finish and never got to write "Virtua Walrus".  I did find the time to do a Bootleg Demake entry but never found the inspiration in the Commonplace Book theme (gz to all the guys who did though).  I think the the fulfilling 2 previous criteria would be cool (however tenuously you justify it).  I reckon there must be quite a few people who, several months on, have daydreamed what their entry to one of the previous compos would have been.

The late entry idea is so cool.  It's the best idea since sliced bread apart from individually packaged, ready buttered, slices of bread.

It would great to have a spot on TIGSource for people to post their late entries.
