@XiiR3CR34T1ON:
For this contest, we are focusing on the TI-83+ series (TI-83+/SE,TI-84+/SE). Please see below for the list of categories.

@Spyro: Games that are simplistic in nature yet fun. It could be something as simple as a snake game, or Pong. Early arcade type games are great examples. You should be able to pick it up and just play.
Yeah some rules were not there last night, eg when I checked the 83+ series specification wasn't there. I think some more edits will occur to make things more clear.

For example, BBC Basic, Fast RPL and Grammer are all allowed in the ASM/Axe/Hybrid category, but it was not specified as Geekboy considers them as hybrid language.

Also IIRC the 2nd place prize for each category isn't confirmed yet. Currently, Omni lists a calc backpack/case or something, while TI-Planet lists a bunch of Z80 calcs, but it seems that TI-Planet has the right prize. I assume this will be a bunch of older calcs.

EDIT: By the way, I take it that TI-84 Plus C Silver Edition games are not allowed?

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

@Roondak: No need to lurk anyway. Welcome to Omnimaga! You should go <a href=http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?board=10.0>introduce yourself.</a> :)

@Dapianokid:

So, you made a post just to quote what other people said in this thread? Please don't spam. I really serves no purpose whatsoever. Thanks.

Aaand of course this has to happen at precisely time of the year when I'm most busy. Well, will try to whip up a small something anyway. I want that Omnimaga shirt :P

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.
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.

I know this is a day late, but: OMG YES!!!!!

Sad thing my computer died (both Windows and Ubuntu won't boot, doing system recovery now) yesterday, or I would have known already.

On that note: I must say that I'm glad I started working on my new game today before I knew about this contest.
I am Bach.

* 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!

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..

I already know exactly what I'm gonna make, and it's perfect for this! Started it an hour ago, but my batteries died. >_<
Now I gotta get some more...
