Pascal Game Development is holding its 1st mini competition. Theme and specific challenge rules will be announced on the day of the event. Everyone note on your calendars the 17th of June as the start of the PGD Challenge.
We can't tell you the exact theme of the competition obviously, but we can tell you that it'll be something simple so don't fret it you are programming newbie. This mini competition is open to everyone and anyone who uses Pascal or Object Pascal in your entries.
This was originally going to be a prize-less event, but thanks to the kind generosity of Johannes Stein (aka Stoney) he has offered up some game titles which haven't been claimed to be yours if you place among the top of the scored entries at the end of the competition. First place will pick first and the remaining after will get their choice until all prizes are selected.
Prizes will be:
* Mass Effect 2 (EA Download Manager code)
* Terraria (Steam gift)
* Frozen Synapse (Download with optional Steam key)
* The Secret of Monkey Island (Steam gift)
An FTP server will be setup for you to upload your entries to. To enter the challenge, all you must do is upload your submission as an archive file. (zip or rar for example) Entrants will need to include basic documentation in the form of a readme file or a game manual including their full name (first and last) and email address to contact them should they win a prize. In this documentation, please include basic directions as to how to play your game. Failure to do so could greatly affect your score at the end.
Further details such as scoring, theme and rules will be provided on the 17th of June at the start of the competition. Everyone please check the Pascal Game Development community website for those details then.
