The Uzebox community is officially launching its first game coding contest! We aim to stir interest in peoples to realize games and ideas sleeping idle in a corner of their brain! The contest will offer prizes and eternal gratification by having their names all over the place on the Uzebox site. Here's the details:

RULES
  • The contest will launch February 1st 2013 and close June 1st 2013 at midnight GMT-5.
  • Participant *must* register to participate.
  • The registration date limit is April 1st. To register, send the administrator a personal message on the forums with a rough idea of the game you are planning to present (if possible). It will remain secret but if someone had registered the same idea before you will be advised.
  • Participants will be listed at the end of this post
  • More than 1 entry can be submitted per participant but only one can win a prize
  • You can share the progress of your game at any time during the compo as long as you registered it
  • Existing WIP games never completed can enter the contest...perfect occasion to finish em up ;)
  • More than one person can work on an entry but only one prize will be attributed to the entry
  • Source code will need to be submitted along the binary and we must be able to compile it
  • Projects must be made to run on the hardware and emulator. An exception to not support the emulator is if your game uses the SD card interface to load content.
  • Projects must be games or other useful and interactive programs (like Uzeamp, a tracker, etc). No demos will be accepted (demos in the traditional sense, i.e: Second Reality by Future Crew).
  • Projects must not be a simple update of an existing Uzebox game.
  • Projects must be at most 61440 bytes long to be compatible with the Gameloader.
  • Any video mode can be used
  • Any kernel version can be used
  • Custom kernels and video mode can be developed and used as long as it runs correctly on the real hardware and the emulator.
  • Jury will be made of a panel select by Uze
  • Rules may be subject to change
  • If money prizes are given, they will be payed out exclusively via Paypal.
  • Judging will be made by summing the rating from 1(lowest) to 10(highest) several criterions:
    • Game Play: How the game plays and reacts, AI level, game dynamics, etc
    • Originality: Bonus point for an original game concept (i.e. not a port of an existing game)
    • Graphics: Quality and richness of the in game graphics
    • Sound & music: Quality and quantity of sound effects and in-game music. Bonus points for original effects and music.
    • Completeness: Bonus point for things like many game levels, main menu, high score panel, attract mode, etc.
    • Technical prowess: custom video modes, complex effects, etc will be awarded bonus points
  • Prizes will be allocated as following (first proposal, to discuss). Note that the prizes may be subject to change for the better if we find sponsors.
    • 1st: A E/Uzebox ultra deluxe kit: Kit(PCB+all parts)+2 controllers+AVRISP MKII programmer+SD CARD preloaded+power supply+all cables + 200$ + a 7" TV monitor sponsored by Adafruit.com.
    • 2nd: A E/Uzebox standard kit + 100$
    • 3rd: A E/Uzebox base kit + 50$
    • 4,5,6th places: 1 Uzebox t-shirt


Obviously in 4 a months timeframe we are not expecting miracles, so the goal is to make simpler games that can still be fun -- and have fun coding it too! Simpler games are less complex and have more chance to be completed.

Hope you join massively...good luck! :mrgreen:
