That thread with all of the oldie members actually reminded me of a competition once held at Total klik. I think it was called the 4-bit competition. The idea was to make games loosely within the limitations of the original gameboy. Same screen resolution (160x144) and only 4 shades of one colour.

This isn't a competition just an idea that might be fun because I remember the original being extremely popular all over the community!

Okay now in all seriousness, are you proposing we do another competition Andy? In hopes of reviving some interest in TDC? If so, has anyone put any effort toward executing Eliris's idea? Or would we just do this instead?

I have a feeling the lack of buttons is going to be a problem for me (the Gameboy only has 4, including "Select" and "Start").

Anyway, here's a mockup of my inventory screen:

Thats what ive got going so far. It's not a mockup. I wanted to wait until i got the basic engine working (and music) before posting something.
