I don't like the idea of revisiting old compo themes. It's just not the way TIGers do things. Tiger

oh man, this is exciting. I would like to do another tig comp, it has been a while since I did one.

Operator comp:


Someone describes a game, then the next person make it from that description. Then someone writes a description of the game that was made, and the next person in line makes a game based on that description. Rinse repeat. This would need to be done in serial, but there is no reason that a few parallel versions of the comp couldn't be going on at once.

Title screens, credits, options screens are not part of the limitation.

Why not?
Sorry for not answering sooner.

Well, when I say single screen is that the gameplay is in one screen only, but you can create another screen for the mentioned parts, because it would help to separate the components.

But I was expecting someone to be creative and stick a full blown game in a single screen, options and stuff.

Also, I'm glad people thought it was interesting. I'll do my  best to participate.

Single screen sounds great would like to try and participate in the next comp, not sure my skills are up there yet but would be a good test to see how far I've come.

TIGS FORUM APPROPRIATION COMP
One idea I had was that people would have to make games using only assets from the tigs forums. Would be interesting to see what people's work is used and what people are able to come up with.

STORY COMP
Another idea I had was that an in depth story would be voted upon. Not sure where we'd get it from, whether made up from the creative writing section or just choose a book or movie (e.g Romeo and Juliet, To Kill A Mockingbird) and then people would have to create their game using any game genre and any approach to tell the story voted upon. Could be fun to see how people interpret the same story completely different.

Just some ideas I had...

The Officially Licensed TIGSourceTM Game
We try our hand at making a licensed game. The license of course would be TIGSource itself. The game should feature the TIGs joystick as the main character , lots of monocled gentlemen Gentleman, plenty of TIGer sauce Tiger, and of course a giant naked man. The winning game goes down in history as the official game of TIGSource and the TIGForums.

Let me talk to Derek about it!

Any idea how long till the next compo?  Weeks/Months?  Keen to do another  Grin

I would like to start one at the beginning of April.

Kickass timing, I'm in for sure if the theme is good.

+1 for this.

How about games based on Aesop's Fables? There's plenty of fables I've never heard of..

Quote
The Ass and the Grasshopper An Ass having heard some Grasshoppers chirping, was highly enchanted; and, desiring to possess the same charms of melody, demanded what sort of food they lived on to give them such beautiful voices. They replied, "The dew." The Ass resolved that he would live only upon dew, and in a short time died of hunger.

Quote
The Boy Hunting Locusts A boy was hunting for locusts. He had caught a goodly number, when he saw a Scorpion, and mistaking him for a locust, reached out his hand to take him. The Scorpion, showing his sting, said: If you had but touched me, my friend, you would have lost me, and all your locusts too!"

How about MMO competition? With HeroEngine it could actually be doable.

Also +1 for the story compo

So, after talking to Derek:

Official compos will probably make a return after he's done with Spelunky HD, hopefully on a more regular schedule. Any compo I run will be strictly unofficial. That being said, they can be a sort of... official unofficial compo. Hah.

So our choices are:

1.) I start one of the suggested themes as a compo for April. It runs for the duration of April, voting for the Duration of May, and we have 1-2 months of cool-off/polish time until the next compo.
2.) We wait until we get admin support for subforums and frontpage

I'll leave the decision up to you guys.

Unofficial kinda... didn't work before. I was the sole victor, eheh. Unless there was a good way to make an announcement and drum up publicity, I'd say to wait.

My idea...

Timeline Compo Each game must take place over an extremely large period of in-game time, either in segments or continuously.

I think a competition would at very least need its own dedicated sub-forum, along with a few news posts at key points.  Those without haven't done well.

I'm guessing that only Derek can add such a sub-forum, but I'd assume that anyone dedicated enough could manage the compo at that point?

I'd rather wait for an official comp too. We've had 3 or 4 unofficial ones that weren't very big.

Biggest respect to Derek for all his work with this site and community, but it's a huge fail that he's a necessary component of an official TIG comp. I get that he's an official, but why aren't there more officials whom are active?

I'll throw another idea in here ...

BoardGame-Like

Look through the classification of board games here: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/581158/an-alternative-classification-of-board-games-long and choose a few of the mechanisms and genres from the  bullet points (or at random), e.g.,

Discard Pool: Turns involve discarding a card, and refilling your hand with a random card or a card from a common discard pool, not necessarily in that order. + Pathfinding: Manipulate pieces into alignments that help you move multiple times at once.

and then build a game with those features..

Sounds awesome! I think it would really force people to make some small and interesting MMOs.

That also sounds very fun. I've had a few ideas for that kind of game. I think computers can add a lot to Board Games.
