We don't want or need a theme and we're not going to use one. [QUOTE=RO;34807972]start now then?[/QUOTE] He [I]could[/I] start now, but that would ruin the fun and challenge of having the code for a day.

  • Maybe I'll participate in the next one. I'd like to see how this one turns out first...

  • I won't be able to participate between the 10/3 and 31/3, so maybe you could move me further down the list?

  • [QUOTE=i300;34804933]Oh yeah, you can use code you've written before, just make sure it's clean and we can understand it. This goes for everyone. If you have code that you wrote or you acquired with an open-source license you can use it.[/QUOTE] And by open source license, he means a license that allows you to use the code, no matter if it's open source or not. Because open source license is a meaningless term and it'd be easy to fuck it up.

  • [QUOTE=benjojo;34805865]Is it possible for us all to say what we will be doing on the order list? Seems to make sense.[/QUOTE] No, that would ruin the point. [QUOTE=MisterSjeiks;34807631]I hoped you guys would get a theme from some random title generator, Facepunch presents; ''[b]Morbidly Obese Dance Crisis[/b]'' [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] From [url]http://videogamena.me/[/url][/QUOTE] No, that would ruin the point. [QUOTE=DarKSunrise;34804519]An isometric perspective could be interesting.[/QUOTE] No, that would ruin the point. [QUOTE=Darkwater124;34805115]Top-down tile-based adventure shooter a la Zelda it is then. (You play the guard) [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] It starts with walking around for 4 hours when eventually someone shows up and fights you. If you win, he will respawn. If you lose, game over. [editline]21st February 2012[/editline] Why do I have the same feeling as being the last man standing in CoD Search & Destroy or something?[/QUOTE] Ideas Guy. [QUOTE=supersnail11;34804561]I vote tile based but non isometric.[/QUOTE] No, that would ruin the point. [QUOTE=leontodd;34805875]I thought the point was that there was no theme or gametype, you just pass on your source code and people do whatever the fuck they want until you have a functional game.[/QUOTE] That is the point, this needs to be more clarified. You're all programmers. Just use common sense. This thread doesn't need to be a clusterfuck.

  • Oh god.. How small is the chance that some of my snippets are still in the final game?

  • Wouldn't it make sense to put people with with a very good grasp of the language/framework at the beginning, to make sure everything is set up well for everyone else to build upon?

  • unfortunately you have too many people taking this project too seriously, "establishing" things which dont need to be established - take a decent programmer and write a bit of code, pass it on, and don't become too attached to everything make progress over time and focus on Getting Things Done(R) rather than thinking about What Could Be(TM)
