We've been talking about doing this for ages, so it's about time we finally launched the Three-in-One Competition! This is a special Minigame Competition that also integrates a Sprite Competition and a Music Competition (and, optionally, a Drawing Competition if you want to include concept art).

The theme of this competition is Flying. But since this is a unique competition, participants don't need to adhere rigidly to this theme. The theme was purposely kept highly flexible. The only stipulation is that flying must be featured somewhere in the game (even if it's as simple as a flying enemy or even a background decoration).

The Rules!
  • Teams of up to two members are permitted.
  • The competition ends in three weeks, on April 13, 2015. Because of the unique nature of this competition, I'm willing to grant a one-week deadline extension if deemed necessary.
  • The game should use as many original resources as possible. At a bare minimum, it must use the following: an original engine, at least two sprites with at least two frames of animation each, and at least one music track.
  • Both fangames and indie games are acceptable.
  • Have fun and be creative!

Thanks to CornFlakes reminding me to finally launch this (and Shroomguy deserves a hand too for being the first person to propose this idea back in 2010, if I'm not mistaken).

Nice idea! I'll join this competition, but the problem though, is that I can't make music at all. But if anyone wants to help me by making music, then please let me know. :)

I am totally joining in this one! I've already got an idea for a game, and a rough concept for the music theme!

Does this mean we aren't allowed to use non-original stuff, or only that original stuff is highly preferred? Please elaborate.

Anyways, I'm working on a plan for this. I can handle music and programming, but I'm still fairly new to graphics and would like a helping hand in that department. Some experience in other areas would be a bonus.

I like the idea of a super competition, but...

flying.
That isn't really the most original theme we've ever had and doesn't really spark my interest.

Cap'n Coconuts: The latter. It's OK to use premade graphics, but the more custom graphics you use in your project, the better.

I have an idea in mind that will only be using the flying theme very lightly, but I'll be able to make it work. (If someone could offer me some help in music, that'd be very appreciative.)

Also, if someone needs our help for a certain project but we're creating our own projects without them, would that technically be off limits?

Anyone want music or graphics? Let me know and I can be your helping hand.


Also, does it have to be a Mario game?

He said it could be anything. A fangame or indie game.

Flying? Ehh....may pass.
Besides, I don't know how to compose music at all.

If anyone's interested in helping out in the graphics department for a shoot-em-up Mario/Green Lantern crossover, send me a PM please. If you really want to impress, include some of your finest work in the PM.

The end result will be kind of like Luigi Land, but somewhat longer and with a different power-up system (and power ring energy management). I'm looking for someone who can make Color Lantern versions of several Mario characters, some special effects, and perhaps some unique enemies.

I suppose I could try doing it by myself--but with a competition like this, my efforts may be like the sound of one hand clapping.

I wonder how much of the competition time will be spent looking for team match-ups.

I am making some good progress with my entry, and I decided to show a WIP screenshot of it.

It's a Breakout clone, but (not programmed yet) there is a unique gimmick in it.

How's about "falling with style"?

I can't program and I'm awful at graphics, so I don't think i'm the most sought after partner. :laugh:
But I wish you all luck.
