This year so far has been very good for the Amstrad CPC, as we've seen a number of games that have been released such as Galactic Tomb, Pink Pills, Robbie Strikes Back, The Dawn of Kernel and even the incredible dungeon crawler 'The Shadows Of Sergoth'. But the Amstrad is about to get another boost in the homebrew department, as this week the #CPCRetroDev 2018 - Amstrad CPC Game Creation Contest has been announced

Exciting to see that it is announced  :)  but I haven't worked what I want to do yet, but 31st October is ages away right?  :laugh:


I have a question about the gesture in the rules though.
It mentions a gesture to Chicago's 30 in the form of a sprite but do we have to take a sprite exactly as is from the game or can we just draw an equivalent using whatever palette or perspective we like. Effectively this would be a sprite that is inspired by the game but not directly copied.

I'm already panicking as there are only 3-and-a-half months to go!

I am not also sure, but i suppose that it does not needed to be an exact copy- that is not the meaning of the competition.
I also have a question regarding <opera prima> award: it is mentioned that it refers to new groups, can i suppose that new individuals are also included?
