Brony Day Terraria Giveaway! Deadline Change!


Me and a BUNCH of other sites are getting together and hosing 7 different contests for 7 copies of Terraria!
You can find the post on EqD here: http://www.equestriadaily.com/2011/07/brony-day-2011-festivites-around.html
So here is my contest:



16-Bit Game Contest

Contest Details:
Make an 16-bit styled game with ponies!

Rules:
1. Sprites MUST be 16-bit (or less)
2. The music can be anything, it doesn't have to be 16-bit, though it would fit best.
3. The deadline is September 15th (As of now, is still subject to change).
4. Send the finished game to strawberryspice@ymail.com
5. The title of the email should be "Game Contest"
6. You should include the author of the game, and preferably sources to your materials.

Due to some confusion, only the sprites have to be 16-bit styled. It doesn't matter what you use to make it as long as it looks 16-bit.

Have those games come right to me! If you want, a good source to 16-bit pony sprites is the Desktop Ponies program.

Happy Brony Day!

  1. Question: does the game have to be completely stand-alone, or can it be something that is run in another program?

  2. Well, if it's a game, it's a game! But remember, I do have to judge them, so if I'm not able to get the program, then you're outta luck.

    So the answer: sure!

  3. Lastly, define "with ponies". Can it have nonponies (spike and gilda and so on don't count)?

  4. It means anything in the ponyverse really :P

    ReplyDelete
  5. Can it have things outside the ponyverse though.

  6. I would love to enter the contest as I'm making a 16-bit MLP game, but there is just no way I could beat the deadline.

  10. Attempting to make a game for this contest, and now I'm realizing that I only have less than 9 days left. Pretty much all I have is a simple game engine I made in Flash. I will try my best to complete it by the deadline... I had a lot of ideas that I had for this game.

  11. @Jay6

    I say go for Quality over quantity. I'll be increasing the deadline soon anyway, so don't rush!

  12. Oh really? Sweet! I also realize I'm busy with a few things over the week. I'll do my best! :D

    ReplyDelete
  13. Do you plan on making an official announcement? I got a -really- late start (barely a week ago) and would like to know what level of madness I need to drive myself to. Thanks..

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thank you so much for changing the date! Now I think I'm able to complete this! (I still have a lot to do lol)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hey, a bit random, but I've got a question: what happened to that Equestriagaming art challenge thing??

  17. I'm gonna try to make something, but my main problem will be the sprites.
    Anyway, good luck everypony !

  18. Sprites aren't the issue. Desktop Ponies pretty much just GIVES them to you. If you have Adobe Fireworks, you could export the gif image states as separate images. It's fairly easy in my opinion, unless you're wanting original characters (I did a couple)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Wow, one hell of a deadline push. That will do nicely. Thank you oh so much.

    Best of luck everyone, can't wait to see the new creations. :)

  20. I hope we get some more programming bronies...we need some Minecraft modders...

    Bronies aren't known for completing their games

    Anyways let's see how i get this some more popularity...

  22. I'm only here to play, not create ._.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Great... There's still time? I dunno if it's enough time to finish it.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I keep picking away a lot at my game every day... I'd say in about 10 days or so, my game may be finished. I can't guarantee it, but I'm determined I'll get it done before the deadline. I'm happy enough to see most of my original ideas come to light in this game. :D

  25. I'm currently applying some final touches, and doing final testing. I will be uploading "Super Filly Adventure" to Newgrounds when I'm done. (Expect it up in a day or two)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Submitted! I'll be uploading my game to Newgrounds this afternoon.

  28. I'm missing this deadline too. My fault entirely though. Procrastination is a cruel mistress.. :(

    ReplyDelete
  29. I almost finished my game, but school started two weeks ago and the amount of work is overwhelming.
    So, I give up. Good work for those who managed to finish their games. I wish you luck !

    ReplyDelete
  30. Someone else that entered the contest? Oh good... I thought I wouldn't get any competition for a moment. I wonder how many people submitted an entry?

    ReplyDelete
  31. CONTEST IS OVER!!

    Can't wait to see what people came up with =3

    ReplyDelete
  32. I'm kicking myself for not getting it done, but now I can expand, refine, and playtest. I hope there were some really good games to come out of this; I'd also love to see what I was up against.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Bah, well I missed the deadline. Then again I only found out about this a few weeks ago, somehow I missed it when the contest was originally posted. Oh well, in a few days or so it should be ready.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Even if I didn't hit the deadline, I probably would have still continued to finish the game. I mean, it'd be a wasted effort otherwise, right?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Umm... have the results come in yet?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Another 30 days later, and nothing has been mentioned about the contest. Does college work really take that much time away from everything?

    ReplyDelete
  37. ehm... contest? where are you? where are the games?

    ReplyDelete
  38. Good question. I would have at least expected my game to be advertised here... even though it was for the contest.

    ReplyDelete
  39. If anypony has a link to their games, maybe post them?

    ReplyDelete
  40. We need a Skyrim pony game then we evolved
