BlitzCoder Indie Game Competition 2022 ⚡
The BlitzCoder Indie Game Competition 2022 is now open, cue dramatic music! What no music, alright never mind...
If you are an independent game developer with a game just finished this year or are still working on one then you are welcome to join BlitzCoder.org and submit your entry before 31 October 2022. Prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place will be awarded $125 each. Winners will also receive a license for Unwrap3D Pro (1st and 2nd) and Unwrap3D SE for 3rd, as well as a license for TimelineFX. Many thanks to the sponsors.
Voting will take place from November 1 and last for 2 weeks. Voters can vote for their 3 favorite entries but participants can't vote for themselves, obviously. Votes should be ordered 1st, 2nd, 3rd and if you like you can also rate them as listed in the competition rules.
There is no restriction on what development tool you are using and it doesn't matter if it is 2D or 3D. It can just be a demo or the full game, free or commercial but it should be playable on a desktop OS. Entries should be posted in this topic before November with your game title, download link and optional screenshot. If you have any questions just ask but questions about the rules should be posted in the competition rules.
So start your engines! Or something...
If you would like to vote you will need to be a known Blitzcoder member, if you use another development forum you will need to introduce yourself so we know a little about you and the best place to do that is in this topic. Participants don't have to do this.
Well, it can be a game made with a GUI instead of a graphics window, but it must be a game. I've added a definition of game to the rules.
Game will mean a computer game in 2D, 3D or even GUI that is controlled by a user input device for the sake of fun.
that's good to know, will you be working on the same game as in "The six sides of Qube" compo? Or should I not ask?
Nope, it's just a general game competition with no real rules, it's really just to bring together whatever is being made this year.
Just to clear things up as this matter will surely be brought up later on.
A few questions...
Can it be a commercial game?
Does it have to be finished this year?
Does it have to have been started this year?
Yes, browser games would be classed as desktop, but I'm not so sure about including Android games as I've not run an Android emulator before.
Yes, it can be a commercial game, no you can just release a demo, no it doesn't have to be started this year, just released in this year.
Also, it can be released last year as long as it was in the last quarter, or 3 months.
When participants have a finished release they just post it in this topic with title, screenshot and link. There are no finished entries yet. There will be a separate topic for voting in November.
We would like to formally add our support to the Indie Game Competition. We will be giving away licenses for Unwrap3D Pro for 1st & 2nd prizes and Unwrap3D SE for 3rd prize.
Well in that case my Demo for Paws for Adventure was released a couple of weeks ago and fits the bill.
Its had a few bug fixes since release and I may make a couple of small fixes but I think its pretty much as good as its going to get and the full game wont be released until late next year
hmm, well if this is open to any game released this year then...
Here's my entry:
let me know if you need steam codes to play it for voting purposes.
