Introducing Scary4Digits 2014
Posted on August 31, 2014 at 20:41



STARTS: September 20th, 2014 -- 00:00 UTC
ENDS: November 9th, 2014 -- 23:59 UTC

Each entrant will be assigned 3 random themes.

LIST OF ASSIGNED THEMES


It is with great pleasure that I am hosting the 4th annual Scary4Digits game development competition. Since 2011, Scary4Digits has been a staple competition of the community held through the month of October; it is but once a year that the community comes together to make and play each others' games on Halloween night, and this year won't be any different.

This year's competition gives you 41 days and nights to create something spooktacular, but also brings a twist when it comes to the theme. Historically, a single theme has been given and all entrants were required to use it in their creations, but this year... this year it's different.

3 themes will be assigned to each entrant (entrant in this case being a solo developer or team of developers) at random. Entrants will be required to create a game that utilizes these themes, and all themes will be fully open to interpretation.

Teams are allowed, though teams must have a name which must be given by each participant within the team at sign-up.

Sign-up for Scary4Digits by filling out this form. All participants MUST have an account on the site and MUST fill out this form.

NOTE: All participants will receive a free trial for Unity 4 Pro for the duration of the competition.

I will use the secret powers of the Runes to assemble the best game ever to exist throughout time, the past and the future. Gods will resign, angels will cry and I will take over the universe.
Surely by now, you must feel competitively motivated and ready to bust arse.

I don't see why you shouldn't be able to as long you post it here first as an entry.

I'll enter in case circumstances and/or my lack of a mouse change(s).

Gods will resign

You can resign from godhood? That would make an excellent video game plot.

"Yeah, I got bored. It wasn't for me. Managing a whole planet full of ingrates, being forced to talk to men on mushrooms, to push down some buildings and throw a few lightning bolts around to make sure people didn't forget me.... It takes it out of you, man.
Plus, they were about to fire me."

And then they have to deal with social security.

Just a quick question, do we get our themes the 20th of September or do we get them like a day in advance so you have the time to come up with an idea?

I'll enter later when I got some things sorted out:
Is it ok if I throw in some steam games or a cash prize even though I plan to enter (possibly collaborating)

Any donations will be gladly accepted from both entrants and non-entrants.

Edit: Got side tracked with some sponsorship stuff and forgot to reply to Iasper...

Themes will likely be announced prior to the start of the competition. The length of time before the theme announcement will be determined later, but I'd like to get as many participants as possible first.

What are good steam games these days?
I'm thinking about $50 'ish + 50$ cash for 1st place

Well, Civilization: Beyond Earth comes out October 24th and is a $50 preorder if you just wanted to do one game. Not sure if you can preorder things as gifts, though.

If the Civ 5 release day version is anything to go by you might want to choose something else.
