-=[Competition now open for entries!!!!]=-

Feel free to enter using the rules outlined below:

1. Single hardware category. Submission should mention target hardware (OCS 1Mb,AGA,Anything) and judges may take into consideration appropriate use of resources when scoring.

2. Games must be a substantially new work for the competition. Significant reused game elements (eg graphics, audio) are permitted and should be declared such that the judges can identify the original work done for the competition.

3. Judgement will be made on the publicly available submission (That is, what the judges play is the same as what anyone else following the competition can play).

4. The competition will last 6 months from the official start date, and final submissions must be made by 23:59 UTC on the last day.

5. Team entries are permitted, with team size being declared. A single contact point should be provided.

Additional information:
The competition makes no claim to ownership, licencing or distribution rights, which belong to their respective owners. Submitting an entry to the competition expressly grants the competition organisers the right to distribute the entry for purposes of the competition only.

Judging criteria will be on "best game". Judges may consider the amount of reused material and technical proficiency.

Submissions must be in the form of a disk image (or images) playable on both emulated and real hardware, according to the stated target hardware configuration. Instructions, etc, to be provided as necessary, as determined by the submitter. An archive in a standard format (eg lha) suitable for harddisk installation is also acceptable.

Prizes will be distributed thus:
1st place = 55%
2nd place = 30%
3rd place = 15%
Shatterhand will get things going officially kick things off when he has the time in September.

But as rule 2 states, the game doesn't have to be written entirely in the 6 months from the official start date, so as I have said before do crack on chaps and chapeses.

Please not, there will be two threads, one "Entry: your game" for you to post all your updates in in a relatively clean manner, these posts will then be copied to a "Discussion" thread where others are will be able to ask you questions, provide moral support or advice.

If you have a question please do not hesitate to ask.

We will help where we can, but as this is Shatterhands idea, it's only right for him to decide ultimately.

I'm sure any EAB members know about this by now, and probably people on other Amiga forums as well...

Also, Neil kindly publicised this on Indie Retro News a few days back

I will now adjust my posts to show:

Start: 1st of September 2018
Finish: 28th of February 2019 at 11:59pm UTC
