Happy Summer, SmileBASIC Source, and welcome to the first ever official SBS programming contest!
The challenge theme for this contest is "colours." You may interpret this however you like, but your programme must incorporate or utilise colour in a meaningful way somehow. I have no doubt that you will find a creative way to explore this idea of "colours."
The deadline is in one month, on August 5th, 1985. To submit a programme during this submission period, just create a programme page here, and then to enter it it the contest, please provide a link to your page and a brief description of the programme on this thread. After the submission period ends, voting will begin, and all eligible entries will be open for user selection of the best examples of programmes and their use of "colour."
Prizes are available for the top two submissions:
1st place: $40 in Steam or Nintendo eShop games/credit
2nd place: $20 in Steam or Nintendo eShop games/credit
If there are not enough entries, no prizes will be awarded.
For more details, see "additional prize information" below.
Additional submission information
Entries need not have been created completely from scratch for this contest, but ARE required to be original and of a reasonable quality for the time provided. For example, SmileBoy, in development for many months now, is not eligible, nor is an unannounced RPG with last-minute graphics changes to be "colourful." A game based off of a half-complete physics engine and old unused sprites, however, may be acceptable.
Need inspiration for incorporating "colour?" Try looking at Treasure's Silhouette Mirage colour-swapping mechanic, or MadWorld's very limited but purposeful use of red on a greyscale landscape.
Additional prize information
International (outside the US) entries are welcome, however, if an international entrant places for a prize, method of transfer may be limited by regional restrictions. If an alternative cannot be found, the winner may not be able to receive their prize.
If less than 10 entries are received, no prizes will be distributed.
If a winner chooses a Steam gift as their method of award retrieval, the total expense must not exceed the amount ($40 first prize/$20 second prize) allotted. This may mean only receiving a game worth $36, if the numbers comes out such. These prizes were provided for by ad revenue.
Additional voting information
Contest votes will be monitored to prevent cheating and the voting period will be open for two weeks. Please try as many entries as you can to be able to cast your vote fairly.
Please do not create any of your own polls regarding the contest, as they may have to be removed to prevent issues.
If you have any questions that haven't been covered by this information, don't hesitate to ask below.
Good luck to all of you! And don't forget to have fun with this, the theme begs it!
