LOVEFEST III: REVENGE OF THE FEST (THEME: CHANCE)

Post by Stelpa » Tue Oct 23, 2012 2:45 am

NOTE: THE FEST HAS STARTED. TO SEE HOW LONG UNTIL THE ENTRY DEADLINE, CHECK HERE: http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=no ... A15+am+utc

Intro

About 2 years ago, a user named Beatthelastboss created an unofficial love-prototyping competition. That user disappeared after only the second contest, and was never heard from again... UNTIL NOW. I was he, and he is she, and she is me, so it is time to begin Lovefest once again: for real this time!

Rules and Details

Lovefest exists to give people who are "stuck" a friendly, competitive, and fun way to get to work and let creativity flow. Entrants (singular users or groups) will have 2 weeks to create and submit their works based on a vague basic theme decided by yours truly (message me theme suggestions if you are interested). After these 2 weeks, there will be a 1 week voting period (using the forum's poll feature), during which anyone can vote (please do not cheat!). Any Love versions/libraries/extensions can be used, as long as they can run on other people's computers without much hassle.

Submission Template

Please use the following template when submitting your entry:

Title: _________________
Description: ____________________
Username(s): ____________________
Love Version, Technical Notes, Controls and Help, Miscellaneous Notes: ________________________

Theme

CHANCE is the theme for Lövefest III! Good luck!

We shall have a Q&A period before the theme will be announced and the fest will begin, during which time the contest will hopefully draw enough participants to make things interesting. So let me know if you have any questions or concerns! Enjoy!

Neat idea! But, I'd rather you PM me your suggestions, so others are surprised (and don't have a chance to cheat and work before the competition is started!)

Come on! If anyone thinks they might have questions or concerns, now is the time! To address some questions I came up with myself, though:

You submit your completed entries here in this thread, using the template provided. Timezone is UTC to prevent confusion, that being what the forum uses. Entrants may vote if they'd like. The prize is satisfaction of a job well done, a possible budding prototype project to work from, bragging rights, and a hug from yours truly :ultrahappy:

Let me know what you think, too! I want to have an idea of how many people are interested :)

Interested.
I'm just waiting for a theme.
EDIT: Oh, and can I still participate if I'm the only lover in the group?

Suggestions for rules :

No canvases allowed

No Pixeleffects (unless they are optional) allowed

And btw, shouldn't a selected group of people vote? You know, first, user's votes, then the voting team will vote. I prefer the Team who helped make love possible. :3

P.S. : This computer has no graphics card so yeah.

Firstly, I am not sure about those two requirements, I would like to keep the rules rather loose to encourage creativity within limitations. If either of those things will be a big problem, I'll add them to the list of rules :)

Also, wow, having the love dev team be a panel of judges would be brilliant! I would like to keep the voting process simple and quick, so multiple phases wouldn't work, but if any of the love devs would be willing to take a bit to try each entry and cast their vote, that'd be incredibly neat! :D

Dunno if it's possible, but very good suggestion :ultrahappy:

P.S. : The lack of graphics card *might* be an issue later down the line >.>

I like the idea!

How 'bout you edit your first post to have a poll so we can vote on the theme. (Unless you just get to decide the theme...)

Also, when does it start? I'll only be able to participate if it's on a weekend :( .
OBEY!!!
