Any format goes! But the game must at least
run on Win32 platforms. Sorry.
TIGSource competitions are short competitions based around a particular theme. The emphasis is on collaboration, sharing, and, most of all, the completion
of projects. In other words, it's an exercise in making small, tight, enjoyable/interesting games that can be played from beginning to end. There are no prizes involved - the game itself is the prize!
What is the theme of this competition?The theme of this competition is SPORTS.
Oh, sports video games! Whether it's the NFL or the Mutant League, Tony Hawk or Mike Tyson, Track & Field or QWOP... sometimes there's nothing better than enjoying your favorite athletic activity from the comfort of your couch. And with so many sports out there, from the mainstream to the imaginary, I can't think of a better theme for this long-due TIGSource Competition!

Collaborations are allowed and, in fact, are welcomed. You may submit more than one game (up to a maximum of three).
It's perfectly okay to reuse old code and pre-built engines and/or frameworks. It's only the game itself that needs to be done in the compo's timeframe.Ownership:
