If you’ve got a bit of time this weekend and want to do some quick Director coding there is a challenge that is right up your alley.
The 48-Hour Game Programming Competition is a “mostly from scratch”, timed, solo coding challenge where all willing game developers spend their allowed time making the best game they can under a common theme.
The whole point of competing in the LD48 competition is to challenge yourself to write a game, from scratch, by yourself, in 48 hours. That’s what we old-timers call the “spirit” of the competition.
If you’ve got a question regarding any of these rules – see whether thinking about the above statement will answer the question for you.
Starting: April 28 2006 8:00 PM US Pacific (April 29 2006 3:00 AM UTC)
Ending: April 30 2006 8:00 PM US Pacific (May 1 2006 3:00 AM UTC)
You will have to submit your source code, but for a quick game it could be fun. If the theme is physics I have a feeling I’ll come up with something 🙂
