Krampushack 2019?

Isn't it about time for another game competition for the allegro community? Who's up for it? There is still a few weeks to plan it properly.

Krampushack is a very open, free-style, secret-santa type competition. Use of allegro is not compulsory, and the game doesn't have to be written from scratch.

I propose to have rules similar to Krampushack 2018:

1. goal. Create a game as a gift for your secret santa. On <insert start date here>, you will be assigned one of the other participants and you have to make your game as a gift for them. Each should post a wishlist of features that they would like to see in the game. So the rules of your game will depend on the wishes of your secret santa.

2. When: the deadline would be 31 December again. We can set a duration of perhaps 2 or 3 weeks. So it would start somewhere mid December.

3. Allegro & other libs You are encouraged to use allegro, but this is not compulsory.

And I volunteer the TINS site as a hub. See also https://tins.amarillion.org/krampu18/rules/

So what do you say? Happy with these rules, or should I make some changes?

Three weeks I guess wishes should be simple to be simple games.

I hope to have the opportunity to participate and programming, sounds very interesting and I want to see what comes out. :)

Is it alright if I use that image as a splash screen for my Krampus Hack entry? I wanna DO stuff to it.

Already made a folder for KHacK19.

Very cute. But with that font and color it's better for Halloween. :P

Totally!

I hoped to remind people that Krampus isn't exactly a warm or wholesome spirit. The font style and snow should illicit hints of winter and holidays without blatantly using icons or symbols of Christmas.

Right, just as I feared it turns out the mail relay is broken again :'( I'll get this fixed over the weekend. In the mean time, if you need a password reset, PM me and I'll do it manually for you.

Is anybody using RSS readers anymore? I hacked together these things, but I don't know if it's useful for anything:

https://tins.amarillion.org/feeds/news/
https://tins.amarillion.org/feeds/logs/

Those link to RSS feeds for the front-page news, and the entrant logs, respectively.

I see, a gloomy and depressing spirit indicating that Krampus invites you to a deadly competition that freezes your blood. Good work! :D
