Category 5: Mash It Up
We’re a bit disturbed that perhaps this category might just cause some sort of serious break in the time space continuum resulting in the loss of civilization as we know it. Given that we’re currently not convinced that this would be a bad thing, we’re going to attempt it all the same and cross our fingers that everyone is still left alive at the end of it.
For the 5th of the 6 categories at Remakes Towers for the Retro Remakes Competition 2008 we’re going to ask you to imagine what would happen if 2 (or more) 8 bit games collided and birthed out one game. Show us your mutants please! Yes, we’re asking for hybrid games for the 5th category.
Perhaps if Jetpac met Avalon met Armalyte met The Hobbit? If Football Manager met Creatures? If Daley Thompsons Decathlon met Jet Set Willy*? What would the resulting game look like? We don’t know, but we’re dying to see what sort of completely and utterly insane madness you can concoct.
Usual rules apply, of course. Try and think outside the box, the whackier (and more importantly most fun) efforts will be rewarded with the loving of the judges. Oh yeah, and prizes of course.
*we’d like to think this would result in Daley Thompson’s Willy Decathlon, but that’s just us…
