8WeekGame – Competition 2 – Details

I havent talked about this for a while. The first competition was a roaring success in terms of what was achieved – ie 3 Games made in 8 weeks. Shawson did a blinder in Javascript using some of the new HTML5 Canvas elements, and ManicSpaceman won the competition, which was well deserved.

Now the 2nd competition will begin on 04/10/10, but this time the brief is simply:

  • 2D side scroll
  • 1 playable level
  • Cannot use pre-made libraries (Apart from standard ones line XNA)

Shawson has decided this time to use C# XNA due to winning a competition, where he won a MSDN Ultimate subscription worth £13,000! Well done Shaw!

I have already thought about the type of game i want to do, which will be a space side scroll, with space ships, aliens etc. This time round i will design the game properly before coding so that i know what im doing before the competition starts. The rules state we cannot begin coding the game until 04/10, but we can design!

Martin has decided to do a Double Dragon clone, and Shawson is toying with Cannon Fodder, so a diverse selection!
Anyway i will blog more info when i have it.
