I don't know if I am allowed to join in, but as I am already remaking my robot game and improving it on every edge, I just thought I could enter the compo and find out how far I can get with my game.

Good luck to everyone

Just so we're clear, do we need to submit just the original game or the source to the original? And do we need to submit the source for the remake too?
And can we submit the remake as a TDC download?

So it doesn't matter that you're nto going to be able to play the origianl due to it not actually existing anymore... how do you plan to judge how much it's improved Might remake anyway, I'll see how my exam revision progresses.

Sorry I haven't been getting to you guys' questions sooner. Abit busy lately.

"Just so we're clear, do we need to submit just the original game or the source to the original? And do we need to submit the source for the remake too?
And can we submit the remake as a TDC download? "

You only need to submit the original game. As for downloads, if you wish you may submit the download, or you may post it here. Either way works fine.

"So it doesn't matter that you're nto going to be able to play the origianl due to it not actually existing anymore... how do you plan to judge how much it's improved Might remake anyway, I'll see how my exam revision progresses."

You have to post both versions of the game. The original game MUST NOT have a broken link. However, if it does, (if you can) post it here.

As for judging on improvment, the three judges will judge the first game and rate each catergory. Then they'll rate the remake. E.g: Someone judged the original game and the results were...

Graphics: 4/20
Sounds/Music: 5/20
Storyline: 7/20
Gameplay: 5/20
Overall: 5/20

Now I rate the original and the results are...

Graphics: 14/20
Sounds/Music:13/20
Storyline: 12/20
Gameplay: 12/20
Overall: 13/20

Now we minus the original's scores from the redo's scores, and then we add the remainder to the total points. Here's an example.

Graphics: 14/20 - 4/20 = 10 points (14 - 4 = 10)
Sounds/Music: 13/20 - 5/20 = 8 points (13 - 5 = 8 )
Storyline: 12/20 - 7/20 = 5 points (12 - 7 = 5)
Gameplay: 12/20 - 5/20 = 7 points (12 - 5 = 7)
Overall: 13/20 - 5/20 = 8 points (13 - 5 = 8 )

Add them all up and you get 38 points total from that judge. After the two other judges have scored the game, the game with the most points wins.

Good luck to all participants!

I could help with them. I'm not the best, but I'm not necessarily bad at it. I'll download the original tomorrow if I can and see what I can do.

(And hey, if someone else offers, I can just be the backup graphics guy.)

This is a refreshing compo! I've been looking for an excuse to jump back into my game-making saddle; this seems like a great way to do it.

I'm one of those folks who lost their original source files for the game they're interested in remaking. My choice is "Spirit Seeker," my first effort, and a game which actually won the GOTW upon release.

Here's the player's sprite; it pretty much stayed at this position for the entire game.

Image

I worked for a little bit this evening, and I'm happy with the new sprite; this is the player, facing to the right, and stationary.

Image

I intend to make separate directions for both moving and stationary player positions. There will also be some special visual effects surrounding the player, depending on their actions. Although I'm no pro coder, I've learned a lot since the release of Spirit Seeker, and nowadays I have more than just enthusiasm to back up my vision.

I'll make no guarantees, but I still would like to challenge myself to finish a remake of this old game of mine.

"is that a problem, if the original game is not finished (not playable)? actually, just an engine?"

That could negate the Gameplay catergory, so I think engines should be left out.

However, I think that redoing unfinished game could be allowed- the redo could be the complete version of it.

@S-m-r: Awesome!
