3rd RetroKomp GameDev Compo announcement

Hi! I'm pleased to announce, that for the third time the RetroKomp Gamedev Competition will be held, during RetroKomp 2016 event.

The competition was a great success in 2013 and 2015. Last year we had 14 entries for 7 different hardware platforms, with 2nd place taken by an Amiga game - Tanks Furry, which was later released commercially.

The final deadline for submitting entries is set to 10th September 2016 at 23:59 hours. We accept remote entries.

The rules are available here :http://retrokomp.org/?page_id=1582&lang=en_US .

Last year's compo can be seen here: [ Show youtube player ].

Further announcements, regarding prizes will be made shortly.

Yep, of course we're interested, but : DamienD has exceeded their stored private messages quota and cannot accept further messages until they clear some space.

Thanks for the acknowledgment meckert but you don't really need to use my real name; my EAB username is sufficient

...I'd hate to start receiving spam from people due to this. Please amend ASAP

I hope to see at least one Amiga game in the compo this year. Guess there aren't a list of the entries so far?

All cool my friend

...as mentioned in our previous conversations, I always benefit from your highly organised competitions. It means I (and others) benefit in new game for our beloved Amiga

I can't tribute technically, as much as I wish I could, so the only option for me is to provide an incentive via money

Reviewing the RKLE video of last year made me think of Crazy Priest; the programmer is having some bad time in real life and am sorry about that Hope everything will get better
