Epic Game Drop 13
« on: February 11, 2019, 08:26 pm »
I just want to confirm that EGD will be happening this year in July, the due date will most likely be the 11th but the specific day can be changed if its convenient for the most people. At the moment I'm planning on running it, but since there's still 5 months until it starts that isn't set in stone yet and if anyone has interest in running it or helping with it in general say something here, especially since judging and scheduling requires multiple people as is.

It's still too early in the year to begin completely setting EGD up so the main reason I'm making an announcement about it now is just so that people can have as much time as they need to work on their game since we can't be sure how many EGDs there will be after this and we want to make this one as memorable as possible. There are going to be cash prizes for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners and there's some other things I want to try and make happen but I'll need help from geoff with it so that can't be confirmed as of now.

There will probably be 2 more EGDs until sploder dies. Flash dies on December 31st, 2020


In 544 days sploder dies :(
Will update monthly

Most of the greatest sploder games came from EGD. It's a yearly event where everyone was given a few months to make their best possible games and then everyone would publish what they made on the same day. A team of reviewers would then (attempt to) review every single release. It usually motivated people who otherwise don't casually make games to put forth their very best. Some of your favorite games and a good chunk of the EGL is thanks to this contest.

Just out of interest, did you guys have a look at my thread at all? There were a few people there who showed interest in running it, and as I said I would be keen to do so but I've run it before so if someone else wants it then I'll be happy to judge.

It's currently February and a deadline in July means you have 4 to 5 months to make a project which by sploider standards should be enough to make any feature worthy game and, if you're dedicated to working daily, something that could exceed the level of time and care put into cooperators!! I encourage all to at least consider trying their hand at something.

i did. you, meta and flump are the first 3 people i'd ask to judge regardless of who runs it assuming you all want to, and if i dont end up doing it then i'd be okay with any of you running it

This sounds exciting if I don't join this year then... I'll be blaming myself for it fully.

:( Probably not. Geoff deleted the whole forum. This is the first and only backup, remember?

Perhaps I'll enter...However I haven't made a game in 4 years and the ones I used to make were rather...low-quality.

But who knows?

egd12 is still on .tk and can be accessed by cyan or sticki if needed, other than that i think all we have is whatever was posted on the discord server. there might be a way to get some of them though

I'll definitely enter an entry this year. I'm splodeing pissed I didn't do it last year... So might as well do it now or never. It's a shame I don't have any proof though anymore that my last EGD game got in 8th place (because that thread was removed).
