Summer Game Tournament

Summer is here, and you know what that means! Yes, it is time for another LEGENDARY game tournament. This year the theme is "Retro Gaming". Create a modern take on an arcade game hearkening back to the days of NES, Neo Geo, Sega, or just make anything you want. Either way, you get this totally radical poster as a prize!

How does it work?  For one month, the Leadwerks community builds small playable games.  Some people work alone and some team up with others.  At the end of the month we release our projects to the public and play each other's games.  The point is to release something short and sweet with a constrained timeline, which has resulted in many odd and wonderful mini games for the community to play.

WHEN: The tournament begins Thursday, June 21, and ends on July 31st at the stroke of midnight.

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: Publish your retro-or-other-themed game to the Games Showcase before the deadline. You can work as a team or individually. Use blogs to share your work and get feedback as you build your game.

Games must have a preview image, title, and contain some minimal amount of gameplay (there has to be some way to win the game) to be considered entries. It is expected that most entries will be simple, given the time constraints.

This is the perfect time to try making a VR game or finish that idea you've been waiting to make!

PRIZES: All participants will receive a limited-edition 11x17" poster commemorating the event. To receive your prize you need to fill in your name, mailing address, and phone number (for customs) in your account info.

At the end of the tournament we will post a roundup blog featuring your entries. Let's go!

I have a new shipping and printing method now, so the posters will get sent out a lot faster this time.

And here is the F-Zero soundtrack if you want some inspiration. :D

I just love this idea of giving posters to people who make a game for these. Please keep that going as I'd love to have an office full of these things hung up on my wall!

I have an better and cheaper method of printing and shipping the posters now so this is a lot easier for me now.

Ha, fair enough.  I guess I can pretend to be patient for 4 more days.  ;)

If I had a VR headset, I'd be tempted to make a Duck Hunt VR clone.
