  • #6 ✎ 60 seggiepants Do we need a theme? I will be consistent and say we don't need prizes beyond bragging rights or a virtual participation badge either. If we want a theme it is important that someone who isn't a high end programmer can still participate. We don't really want to limit the game genre either do we? On the other hand when it is too abstract you get people not knowing what it means or what to do with it. It is a difficult thing to get just right. I guess with all of that I should really suggest a theme right? I am probably the only one pushing for no theme after all. Hmm OK, I will try
    1. Moon - The moon somehow figures into your game. You could have a text adventure with a werewolf, a racing game on the moon (1/6 earth gravity flips), a lunar game of stratego, lunar lander, a shoot em up over the moon, lunar missle command, etc.
    2. High speed - any racing game, a sonic the hedgehog work alike, high frequency stock trading simulation, geometry dash or piano tiles rip offs, or a tetris clone that ramps up speed over time.
    3. Achievement unlocked - The game should have a bunch of XBox style acheivements you get by playing. They can be dumb/lame ones. It should also have a screen showing the acheivements for bragging rights. You can bolt that on to almost any game. Just please save/load from file so the acheivents you unlock stay unlocked once unlocked.
    That being said, I always wanted to try to make an Outrun style racing game. Should I give it a try? http://codeincomplete.com/posts/javascript-racer/ I vote yes for a fall programming contest, and suggest a 2 week coding window.

  • #7 ✎ 420 MasterR3C0RD Helper Received for being very helpful around SmileBASIC Source Achievements Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website osu! Is Awesome! I love osu! Express Yourself I think more limitations can inspire more creativity. However, I think that forcing themes or categories onto your application is a bit much. I think other clever limitations, like not allowing a certain command or a program length limit, would be much more interesting. I personally think it'd be interesting to have another OSP contest but with more limitations, like "no compression of code", "don't use this command", etc Posted

    snip
    limitations can help people who can't think of ideas based on themes, because I typically find themes to be meh

Express Yourself Reading I like to read books! Hobbies Maybe just pick a word at random. "Tree" or "down" or "five" and see what that inspires people to make. I definitely need inspiration to actually make something! Posted

    Hmm...maybe a generator that takes syllables and puts them into words...? I don't think it would be hard, but it would be time consuming...

    I was thinking more like those name generator websites and stuff. Basically have a string array that stores ideas such as "aliens" and "restaurant" and use a function to randomly select an item from that array. You could even add a second array for limitations, etc.

Express Yourself Video Games I like to play video games! Hobbies you can maybe try a random number generator, generating a number randomly for a variable, then depending on the number, it would print something. but i tryed and failed, had to switch to the sprites.

    DIM THEME$[3] THEME$[0]="Text adventure" THEME$[1]="Restaurant" THEME$[2]="Aliens" DIM LIMIT$[3] LIMIT$[0]="the color blue" LIMIT$[1]="arrays" LIMIT$[2]="graphic commands" VAR R=RND(3):VAR RR=RND(3) ?"The theme is ";THEME$[R];", but you can't use ";LIMIT$[RR] Something like this could work
