Looks like I'm going to finally write a real game. I'll go with BASIC.

Looking good :D
Just to clarify - do they necessarily need to have a history of being calc games? I've got my eye on a certain 2600 title..
Hey, I hope it's not breakout, it's already taken. :P
send it

Hmm I'm interested. I'm thinking of some games I could program in Basic.

@Dapianokid:
So, you made a post just to quote what other people said in this thread? Please don't spam.
I think he might have did a mistake when using quote and probably put his reply inside the tags. But I agree :P

I really serves no purpose whatsoever.
O.O

I'm just getting back into developing Elvyna 4, but I'll consider this if I have time. My parents might not appreciate a random CSE in a mailbox, though.
Yeah this was why the 2010-12 contests featured digital prizes (gift cards). In 2009 the winner had to get the prize sent to his friend, else his parents would have freaked out upon the discovery that their address was put on the Internets.  Since Omnimaga's userbase is generally much younger than Cemetech's, we have often been relunctant about giving away physical prizes.

* shmibs recommends that people head to ticalc.org, try playing a bunch of different things, and see what seems the most fun as a good place to start
good luck, everyone!
Yeah, just make sure to follow Geekboy's advice on originality, though. Don't just make a blatant ripoff of Grayscale Number Guessing Game or yet another Snake clone. Also, although coding skills aren't noted, I am fairly sure that if the game is unnecessarily slow and large for its amount of features, that this will affect useability score. A 50 KB, 15-MHz-only large grayscale Mario clone with very detailed maps would be fine, but a monochrome Minesweeper clone that takes 30 KB of Flash and requires a 15 MHz calc to run fast enough would not.

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

O.o that is an awesome grab bag!

I would rather have that than the 84C!

Yeah at first I thought that a grab bag was simply something like a small backpack. English as second language played tricks on me >.<

Btw, are there pics of the t-shirt ideas available?

The bag looks good. Especially with the 83PSE, though I'll probably need the appropriate link cable (I have only the direct USB one). But I still like the 84CSE better, even if TI messed up somewhat on it.
Due to dissatisfaction, I will be inactive on Omnimaga until further notice. (?? THP hasn't been much success and there's also the CE. I might possibly be here for a while.)
If you want to implore me to come back, or otherwise contact me, I can be found on GitHub (bluebear94), Twitter (@melranosF_), Reddit (/u/Fluffy8x), or e-mail (if you know my address). As a last resort, send me a PM on Cemetech (bluebear94) or join Touhou Prono (don't be fooled by the name). I've also enabled notifications for PMs on Omnimaga, but I don't advise using that since I might be banned.

Just thought I'd mention that you guys aren't limited to arcade style games. This topic is pretty broad, and allows for a lot of different games. Get out there and make something cool!

Mine's definitely strategy.

Turn based strategy with units that have multiple health bars :3
