Game Challenge of the Month Rules

Do you think you are AWESOME? Do you have writers block and can't think of what game to make? Do you just want something fun to do?

Every month, we will post a topic for you, the GameSalad users, to make games using GameSalad and upload them to our website for everyone to view and enjoy.

What do you get out of this? Self satisfaction that you created a game in a month or less? Bragging rights for the month? We don't really know yet. Maybe if it is really awesome, it will get headlined on the GameSalad.com front page.

Bring your A game, your B game, etc. Just don't bring our template games. :)

What to do:
1. Check the forums for the game challenge of the month. Which will be posted sometime near the beginning of the month.
2. Post as many different games related to the topic of the month as you like. By the next Monday afternoon we will announce somewhere who had the most number of "favorites" so you have a month to brag about your game.
3. Post a link to that game as a post reply to that topic of the week thread.
4. Announce your game on other social sites to get more people to "favorite" your game.
5. Have fun!

Rules:
1. Be tasteful. This is a global community, so beware your content submissions.
2. Keep it PG-13. Be mindful that there are children that use GameSalad too.
3. As usual, don't add music/art that you don't have the right to use.
4. Games posted before(old games) the submission date will not be considered as they may have an unfair advantage in the number of "favorites".

We exercise our right to take down your game if it infringes on people's artwork or is too offensive.

    Sounds like a great idea!

    Is there anyway that from time-to-time we could have an 'official' poll by GS members/users as to what the game type for that week might be? I think that would make it even more fun!

    Thanks,

    Did this initiative die? It seems like a great idea.

    You know, the prize of a pro account might tempt no small number too ^_^

    I worked my **** off to win last December's contest just to get a T shirt (which I wear whenever I can). I guess I'm just easy to please!

    :)

    So.. did they cancel it?

    Instead of just a tshirt as a prize, how about this

    - tshirt
    - a feature on the main page (especially good if it gets published to the app store)
    - game salad press release to major web publications announcing the winner for free PR

    Would anyone be up for an unofficial game challenge? Maybe a Halloween themed iPhone game by the end of September?

    Your 'A' game is your best game. Your 'B' game not so good.

    QS :D

    Where is the Game of the Month? It's been TEN months since the last post! Post a new topic, GameSalad!!

    Obviously its something that got abandoned. Things like this take to much time to be a constant thing for most people.

    Please do not bump year old threads.

    Topic Closed.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    Why is this still sticky, if it's closed?

    dont see what the competition challenge is yet. I want to do it though :D. I am not going to win though D:

    Maybe you didn't notice. The competition was 2 years ago. Check out the think out side the Box sub forum for a good contest and the stickies for the newest monthly GS sponsored Contest.
