Great to hear the contest is open again!

Do you know if they accept donations towards the prize fund? I can't see any mention on the site.

As a public University, there is no way in which we can legally accept donations that doesn't cost an intense pain in bureaucracy. We obtain money for prizes from cassette sells and we accept some forms of sponsorship: sponsors give the money prizes directly to winners, without passing through the University. By now, that's almost all we can do. Either the case, thanks for your interest, man :).

Makes sense, thanks for the clarification.

I like it as well, I've even thought exactly where I can use it in my game.
It seems to be that they have worded the rules about the gesture to make it have more impact on gameplay which I think is good.
Sometimes I it seemed too easy to throw something in as a gesture without making it into something interesting that the player will notice.

I can only imagine that if the University didn't get many BASIC entries, they would scrub handing out awards if it meant each BASIC entry would get a prize.


I wanted to write a BASIC game, though substitute parts of it where Assembly would benefit without worrying about Libraries, I think I'm allowed to do that, through was trying to get @ronaldo opinion.
* Using the old Amstrad Languages :D   * with the Firmware :P
* I also like to problem solve code in BASIC :)   * And type-in Type-Ins! :D

Submissions are yet to be opened. They will probably be open on september. Don't worry, you have plenty of time to submit your game :).

You definitely can. There are no restrictions on languages or tools to be used. Only restriction is not using anything that imposes licenses or copyrights that prevent us from legally including your game in the cassette or publishing it in the website. As most of the tools don't have such legal problems, you are allowed to use almost any available tool. Certainly, BASIC+ASM is valid and encouraged. In fact, 8BP is one of the recommended libraries.

I miss the BASIC category.  :)
Though there is no BASIC category this year, we will probably include some kind of recognizion for #AmstradGameDevChallenge contestants that submit their games made in BASIC. Unless an sponsor wants to, there probably won't be specific prizes for BASIC games, but some public recognizion and diplomas are on the cards :).

Note: for those of you not knowing what #AmstradGameDevChallenge is, I will add a new post explaining it :).
