Category 6: We Like It Retro
No, really, we do. We like it Retro. Muchly.
Whilst our previous competitions have seen the emphasis very much placed on the Remakes half of our name, this time round we figured lets shift some of the focus onto the Retro part too. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how we ended up with Category 6. We Like It Retro.
Yes folks, for this category we’re asking you to come up with your very own authentic looking and playing retro style game. And by authentic looking, that’s not a license just to do some really crap artwork and try to pass it off as retro because y’know, it’s a competition and we’ll frown severely in your direction if you do that. Obviously, we don’t want it so authentic that it plays like a slug in treacle either – it’s still got to be a good game. And we reckon you folks could possibly meet that challenge without blinking an eye. We’re not asking for an exact recreation of the system specs of the machine… it’s the spirit that counts!
Want to make a game that looks like it was put together on a Speccy? Now is your chance! Want to make a game that looks like it was put together on a C64? Don’t. Now’s your chance.
And that I believe, is the last of the categories we’ve got to announce… I wonder what’s up next?
