Indie game depository GameJolt has officially kicked off their fifth contest. This time around, the theme is “Indie Game Demake”, which is exactly what it sounds like: contestants have one week remake a preexisting indie game, but scaled back to appear all old and stuff. In case you’re unsure of what to expect, TIGsource held a competition a couple years back requiring contestants to demake existing games, which Anthony covered to the fullest in a very early episode of Bytejacker.
The rules for GameJolt’s competition are actually pretty exciting, mostly because half of them aren’t even rules, and the half that are seem pretty non-restrictive. Collaborations are fine, submitting multiple games is fine, any engine you want to use is fine; everything’s fine, basically. The only real things to keep in mind are that you must make the game specifically for this contest and that you can’t do a demake of one of your own pre-existing games. Pretty common-sense stuff.
Entries are due in Wednesday before midnight (EST). For more information on the demake contest (as well as prize details and all that jazz), visit the contest thread on GameJolt right here: http://gamejolt.com/community/forums/topics/game-jolt-official-indie-game-demake-contest/574/
