What, you thought Fan Created Games didn't get contests? Who can say that our awesome developers can't get in on the action? Huh?! Check out this topic in the General Discussion forum for more information. Here are the rules and regulations that pertain to entries in the FCG category.
-- [color=#800080;]Fan Created Games Rules[/color]Category Host: EmzeeAssistants: Kakaru For this section, we will not be asking for finished games, but ideas for potential games! Come up with a fun game idea that follows that guidelines below and post it here no later than [color=#ff0000;]August 9, 2013 [/color][color=#ff0000;]at 11:59 pm Eastern Daylight Time[/color]. Some of you might notice if you remember the rules that typically, game ideas aren't allowed to be topics. For the sake of this contest, that rule will be lifted IF and ONLY IF the topic is for an entry into the contest, and ONLY during the entry period. After that, entry topics can remain open, but no new topics that don't follow the usual FCG rules can be posted.
1) All game ideas must be your new and original work and cannot have been presented before, whether on paper or as an actual game or game demo. Also, game ideas cannot be direct copies of other titles (e.g. “Bionicle version of [popular game]”). Inspiration is always fine, but the idea here is you see your ideas.2) Entries may not be modified once posted unless you have instruction to do so to fix a rules violation, or if you have approval to correct a minor error. All such requests should be PMed to Emzee.3) Each entry must include the following:
- [*]An objective of the game (the “win” condition)[*]A genre (First Person Shooter, Action-Adventure, etc.)[*]A detailed overview of the game controls (keyboard keys, joystick support, etc.)[*]A detailed description of your game’s mechanics or features (i.e. what can the player do?)[*]A description of your game’s artistic style[*]A description of the story and characters (if applicable)[/list]
- Your member name
- The title of your entry, containing a link to your entry topic (don't know how to link? Just type your title, highlight it, and hit the link button in the post formatting tools above)
4) Game ideas should be creative, unique, and fun. Keep that in mind when coming with up with your entry. 5) Be sure that LEGO and Bionicle games are posted in Fan-Created Games, and non-LEGO and non-Bionicle games are posted in OTC.
To enter a game, post in this topic:
There will be LEGO prizes that we'll be handing out to the winners, so get your creative juices flowing and make sure your entries are original and detailed. Remember, the deadline for entries is [color=#ff0000;]August 9, 2013 at 11:59 pm Eastern Daylight Time[/color]. After that time, we won't be able to accept your entry.
Thanks for reading, and have fun! -Emzee-Kakaru
