It might be good to point out where to make the topic (other calc projects and ideas maybe) in case somebody decided it was wise to create his thread in general technology/hardware  or anime and mangas and got disqualified due to you not noticing his topic. :P

I assume that would be ok as long as it conforms to both themes. So if you port and modify a apocalyptic themed game, you should be fine :D

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Suggestion for contest rules:

-Any participant that is caught mentioning "computer section" or any derivative in this topic, inside his calc game or in any thread related to this contest is automatically disqualified. :P

That might hopefully stop people from bitching about the lack of a computer section and people from asking if there is a computer category. :P

Joking aside, the Cemetech contest rules will probably come out in a day or two. Then you'll see if their contest allows it. From my understanding, you could submit a game demo or full game here then re-use the engine in a Cemetech release and you should be fine. I don't know how originality points will go, though.

After discussing with Kerm, we have reached a decision: you may enter a same project in both contest as long as the criteria is met. However, your grade will suffer heavily in both contests it better be good! :P

Ah ok that's cool then. I still suggest that once the Omni deadline is reached, that afterward you try to push your game further with more features or even do a sequel, though :)

You just gave me an awesome idea! The apocalypse happened because we didn't get a computer section and we destroyed the world! :evillaugh:

What is the deadline for creating a topic? Because I'm currently busy om improving my 3D engine. If all goes well, I might be able to still create a project for the contest after that, maybe even with 3D, who knows? (assuming that would count as a library because the 3D engine project started a long time before this contest).
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

There's no deadline for a topic, but I would love to see them before December 1st.

Just as long as you at least post some updates on your project at one point around December like Yeong said. That is to prevent a repeat of the 2011 TI-Nspire contest, where every participants vanished from Omnimaga entirely during the entire duration of the contest, making things sound like nobody was participating. This is also of course to encourage people to remain active even during the contest.
