Title: Epic Game Drop 13
Post by: bocchi! 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

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

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).

don't think so. But, there are always unlimited collabs, I believe.

Collabs have been limited to 5. You can however, release 5 solo games ( one per Sploder creator )

We all three can collab together then since I've wanted to work with Ethan a lot too. And I do think that if we three were to work together; we could come up with a very interesting game. Given the randomness of us three making a game together, all while, our style is extremely different from one another's. As long as everyone is engaged!

He logs more than you, Rocko. Welcome back.

Ps. Swede, I have no idea what they're doing for EGD this year, but usually there's a limit of ONE GAME per entrant, but UNLIMITED COLLABORATION GAMES. That's what I'm going by until further notice, so Swede, E, and Wordi can launch as soon as you all are ready. We can head to discord for brainstorming.

Yeah we sorted this out. There is going to be a limit on the number of games each person can enter, but as far as I know there aren't any limitations other than that. Can't confirm how many yet as it's still being discussed, just that there is a limit to stop people entering a bunch of games for easy features and to encourage competing instead

I know that know, Flump isn't that trustworthy at all. Especially not when he wants to un-feature games he hasn't even played.

He logs more than you, Rocko. Welcome back.

It was last year, but this year should be different. Just waiting for the number to be actually confirmed, but there should be no limitations otherwise (So they could all be solo, or collabs, or whatever)

Sweden, stop smearing my name, I wasn't trying to trick or lie to anybody, I was just overexcited, you splode.

Currently, the agreed upon submission limitations are that we'll allow 3 games per person ( not sure about any other limitations ), this could very well be subject to change.

I think he was only responding to Rocko's comment about you, but I don't necessarily agree with either of those boys posts when it comes to you. I was just confused because that wasn't how it was run in the past, so thanks for clearing everything up.

The fact that you're this upset, all while adding that with the fact that your excuse is "I was too excited"; goes to show why you don't deserve your position, Imo. Also, dm me if you want to continue chatting, we don't have to create a mess on this thread.

It's usually the same date as the EGD number. So, EGD11 was July 11th, EGD12 was July 12th. July 13 would be following the trend, and I'm sure it was also confirmed.

Typically we've done it so you can submit your game while it's the 13th in any time zone. I'd imagine it'll be the same this year
