So I doubt my entry will be done in time. My apartment was broken into and a bunch of computer things, including my drawing tablet, were stolen.

Oh man!  I am sorry to hear that.  Hope you had backups of your files...  I need to be more diligent about that myself.  [cross fingers]Renter's insurance?[/cross fingers]

Oddly enough, my actual computer was not stolen, just my tablet (which, unfortunately, I sort of need for art stuff and may not be able to replace for a while), my laptop charger, my iPod and a bag of clothes (I had just been on vacation, but why anyone would steal a bag of clothes is beyond me).

Unfortunately, they got my roommate's laptop, his DJ headphones, a bag of 50 records and his bike.

Motherless goats!   Angry

Still, count your blessings that your computer did not get yanked.  Probably too heavy to transport easily and PC's are cheap these days.  A good WACOM on the other hand is not so easy to come by...

Hmm.

Does free-form mean any language?

All I know is Java, but this sounds cool.

No; free form means that you can do any style of game (I think).  There are no constraints on what language you can use, so long as the game will run on a windows pc.

The bloody-minded me wonders whether "it runs on a VMWare virtual machine running on a windows PC" is enough... ;-)

It probably doesn't matter - not supporting windows will make it harder for most people to play your game, so I guess it just comes down to whether or not that's important to you.

I'm in! Will post a thread for my project shortly. But first....

I have a question. Can i use art and|or music ripped from other projects or sources on internet? Or i should find an artist to participate in this compo?

I have a similar question. I'm primarily a programmer too - How much is it permissable or indeed expected to take bits and pieces of code (and maybe a few sprites) from some of my other (unfinished) projects?

I've never entered one of these compos before so don't really know what the unwritten rules are. And if there are written rules that apply, I'd very much appreciate someone posted a link and optionally calling me an idiot.

Thanks!

I think the general idea is not to be a dick about it. So, you know, if you have to grab some code or sprites from something else, it's no big deal. Even if you have a fully developed engine-type-thing you usually use, that isn't a big deal. The point is to be inspired to make something awesome for the competition. So as long as that is what you are doing, using a bit of previous material here or there should be fine.


In other news, the bloody eyepatch on right eye attests to further delays in my entry, but at least it's totally metal.
