Nspire Game Contest: Who's participating
« on: July 28, 2011, 02:58:41 pm »
I was wondering if anyone was planning to pariticipate to the contest? I didn't check the projects section for a while and it seemed most of the Nspire userbase vanished lately, so I was curious who was planning to submit an entry?
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

I wanted to participate, but then again, it's only two weeks left, it's not enough to make an entry.

I really would like to submit something, but I don't know if I'll be able to finish it on time :/
I have lots of work at my home, and still need to study :(

Study? It's July. Well, good luck with your house and your studies :) I'm sure the guys from nspire-lua will all participate (hope...)

Maybe he got school 12 months per year in his area or he has summer classes.

And yeah I hope they participate. I mean in Europe (from experience on forums in the past few years) typically most people don't care enough about calculators to post on calc forums during vacations, let alone program for calcs then, so as a result, almost our entire european Nspire userbase is gone and TI-BANK is very very quiet.

Jim Bauwens doesn't go to school, he studies at home and takes exams.

But yeah it's the French guys I hope participate :)

Oh right I forgot he was studying at home. And Ben_g nice to hear. I just noticed a lot of the people from there vanishes during Summer. Example: Hoffa, Wierden, Compu and Levak hardly ever post anymore now and people such as Adriweb are hardly active either.

Well, I don't think I will participate, because I'm at my grandparents house, and I did not bring my calc...
When I'll go back home, It will only remain one week.

You can make a great game in a short amount of time.  I started my entry to Omnimaga's Axe contest last year less than 8 hours before the deadline and still placed 5th.  I'm pretty sure you could make something awesome in just a week. :)

True, and it can be a smaller game too. It doesn't have to be to the same extent as Bobby Carrot.
