Theme:
________ or Die
(where ______ is a single word. This word needs to appear in the game’s title i.e. Run or Die)

Deadline:
Sunday 6th January (8pm EST, 5pm PST, 1am GMT on the 7(?)th)

Prizes:
First: 100 Kreds + a Kong t-shirt
Second: 50 Kreds.
Kreds are only spendable, not credited to your payout account since they no longer have tips

Information:
For those who do not understand the rules of GiTD, you have 10 days to create a game based on the chosen theme. Once the deadline has passed a new voting thread will be created where users will vote for the person’s game who they think should win. Using an engine is acceptable as long as the person submitting it creates the majority of the game. You may work in a team of up to 2 people. (Let me know if you have a larger team and I’ll see what I can do)

The usual rules apply for using existing code/graphical assets/libraries.


Want to join the GiTD Mailing list? Just leave a shout on my profile and I’ll message you any time a GiTD contests begins, voting begins, and the results of the voting.

Fresh Changes:

  • I’m trying to get a hold of orandze, but I haven’t seen him online for 2 weeks. If I can catch him, I’ll see if we can do the music offer again.
  • It is still strongly encouraged to post prototypes on day 7 for feedback.

I’m in, with my artist

I’m in… just to stop cheating/guessing, I wouldn’t make the theme something to do with Christmas or New Year… maybe not the apocalypse, either.

I’ll participate- I need a kick in the rear.

I’ve updated the OP with prizes. Thanks to Kongregate for providing these prizes now that tips are no longer available.

Please note, the kred prizes are placed in your spending account. So you will not receive revenue from these, which is better because otherwise they’d be stuck there doing nothing until you hit the payout threshold in (likely) a century.

Wow, nice prizes on this one. Count me in!

I don’t know if I’ll join, but it’s really nice that Kong is giving prizes.

 
Flag Post

I’m looking forward to it and yes, very nice of Kong to sponsor the contest.

Seeing as it’s the holidays, I think I’ll take part if I can come up with something decently related to the theme.

That tshirt is mine! mwahahaha!

I’ve recently gotten good at programming and I think this’ll be a good chance to gain experience.

I’m glad to see that Kong is officially endorsing the contest. :)
What time does the contest start on the 27th?

Me and Peroxen are in. Maybe we will change our entry to a ‘company’ account, but for now that’s the way. Gotchimusic will be our musician (I hope I wrote his name right).

 
Flag Post

Sure, why not? It’ll give me something to do while I watch sponsors not look at my current game. :)

 
Flag Post

I’d like to give it a go. I’ve become lazy and unmotivated with my current project, need something fresh to get going again.

Theme discussion in GDR right now.

 
Flag Post

7 hours late. I guess I missed the discussion. Anyway, my suggestion for the theme is ‘splosions. It’s probably artistically focused (to my and others’ disadvantage) but it is open ended.

Oh well, this should start in ~13 hours if I’m not mistaken.

Can I haz Theme now?

 
Flag Post

Let’s see what the theme is, I might have time … or I might not.

So is Kong actually giving us a prize.. a sign that they support/ actually endorse this now?

Yes, that’s really nice from them. And maybe if we start getting lots of great submission, they’ll make it even more official, who knows.

Well GiTD has directly helped to create 140 games, 85 of which got uploaded to Kongregate (some later), with a total of 1,081,328 plays as of 10:25AM.

EDIT Here is the JS script I used to count how many plays:
