I'm excited! I haven't made a game in ages, I think the last one I made was for TINS back in 2012. ::)

I haven't either. The weekend looks semi-clear for me, actually, so I'm going to give it a shot. I may lose a day, depending on the weather forecast... we'll see. :o

I'm on China time, so it starts @ 8pm on Friday, and ends @ 8pm on Monday. I work Monday so I'll lose a good chunk of that day.

I'm still gonna win, though. >:(>:(>:(

Since becoming an actual contestant, my criteria for evaluating rules has changed from, "How interesting would this be?" to, "... How easy would this be to implement?"

I'm more like, "how good will it look it look if I show it to other people?"

I'm working Friday from 2pm to around 1am, and then on Saturday and Sunday from 9am until about 1am. On Monday I start at 11am.

I think I'll sit this one out.

I work on Friday, then go to someone's party after work. Then I'm gone to Bavaria all Saturday and Sunday. And then work again on Monday.

So yeah, not much chance for me either :(

Haha, like you even have to worry about that... I've seen your pixel art before. >:(

Anyone sitting this one out should rest easy, as I will pick up the slack and then some. 8-)

It's OK to try and use languages other than C and C++, right? The previous TINS saw two entries in D, and we had a (Windows) binary pack without too much trouble as far as I remember. This time, I would like to use D too, with SiegeLord's bindings - they were working for me last time I checked. And I believe SiegeLord himself may be going to use Rust since he moved on :) .

By the way, is there be a centralized place where the entries will be put after the contest, like this or that one?

Here I assume.

You can use whatever language you want, but you should realize most people will have problems getting anything other than C/C++ to work.

I'll be able to compile a binary for Windows and Linux for D (and Rust, but I'm the only one using it), so the only problem is Mac, as always.

No of course not, but it is something that makes my life seriously simpler so I don't have to spend all my time reimplementing the wheel over and over again. Lots of utility classes init routines logging input handler image and font classes gui stuff and lots more. It's totally fair game if it fits a 250KB zip file.

I thought they were only fair game if they have already been released publicly prior to the start of the compo.

Didn't expect it to start so soon! I registered, but there's like 90% chance of my not making it, since I might have to work on the weekend to chase some deadlines. :(

We'll see about it.

Looks like this is going to be a < 48 hour compo for most of us. :)

Following Edgar, here's a dump of the code in my framework that may or may not make an appearance in my entry. Consider this the first public release. :)

What if we want to use boost, box2d, OpenCV, or any other library like that? It's fair game, right?

It's a TINS thing. Anything goes for Speedhack (you have to make it clear what was pre-written, however, in the Readme).
