CPCRetroDev 2020
« on: 20:23, 13 July 20 »
Greetings to all! From the organization, we have the pleasure to officially announce #CPCRetroDev 2020, the 8th edition of the retro games creation contest from the University of Alicante.
Once again, we invite everyone to participate in the competition, either through the experience of developing a game, as well as enjoying every one of those who submit to this new edition.






In this edition, we pay tribute with a reference to one of the games which marked a turning point for the video game industry and which its version for Amstrad made by Broderbund just turned 30 years.
Of course, we are talking about Prince of Persia (1990).


You can find more information on the official page of the contest.

Nice!
I liked when there was a BASIC category. I don't think there is one anymore though.
If I manage to complete the BASIC game I'm currently fiddling with when I have time to spare, then I'll probably enter that one as well. I doubt I'll have the time though.... but we'll see.

I have been working on my entry for a couple of weeks so it is good to have it announced. ;D
I am not sure how I am going to reference Prince of Persia, I was expecting the gesture to be for a Spanish game I have never heard of instead.


I see on the website it says Thursday 3 November which isn't the right day of the week, obviously to fix this it should say 5 November to give an extra two days because by the end I'm sure I'm not the only one who will need it  :P . Hopefully I get to bed earlier on the submission night this year.

happy to see that you try also a basic game.
I liked it too, when there was a basic category, but i believe that there were not so much basic games, thats why they changed that.

8 bits de poder (8BP) is listed as one of the recommended dev tools.
That can be used to make something outstanding in BASIC.

I've been thinking about a game idea for a few weeks now.
I have nothing to show for it, as my normal job has been smashing me - we're in crunch mode on a very large project.
Hopefully I'll have time to put together an entry for the comp, I'd love to take part.

The Amstrad CPC BASIC used to get some impressive 10-Liners back in the day when a bit of Machine Code was added to it. The beauty with this compo, being it doesn't hold back what's allowed. Simply acknowledge who coded what, and if it's 11 Lines or more, it won't be added to the WILD category.  8)

* I also like to problem solve code in BASIC :)   * And type-in Type-Ins! :D

We are so sorry. That was a translation mistake, we've fixed it.  :picard:
Actually, it's on TUESDAY 3th of November. It would be great having extra time, but it's not possible, the judges hardly have time to review all the games.
However, thanks for report it!! :D


Will you surprise us this year with a new title from the Fitzroy saga?  ;D

I guess we can't have the judges falling asleep in the award ceremony because they haven't slept for a week can we. :laugh:

How did you guess? now it can't be a surprise  :P but yes that is the plan. ;D

Is a decor element as a window or painting can be considered as a valid reference ?

I couldn't answer that yet. Sorry  :(

My dear Spanish friends who host this fine CPC-Retro-Dev contest, this is great news. Many thanks for your important work.
 
This contest I showed to my fledgeling son and surprisingly he wants to participate… well, the lads love to contest, don't they? I used to teach him a modern high-level language and also retro gaming, but only your contest wakes him now to do the first steps on a CPC and the first low-level steps on top of that. It's also a good way to learn the basics of computing in an oversee-able and manageable environment (one of CPCtelera's aims, as Prof Ronaldo explained IIRC). Well done, Spanish friends: CPC-retro second-generation.
 
We can't wait to see what all those CPC Retro Dev 2020 participants are going to think up.
Good luck all.

Here's a great idea @Gryzor

CPCwiki to sponsor CPCretrodev by offering an award for the best BASIC game.  :)

I think CPCRetroDev is pretty self-sufficient and self-sponsored. I don't think much could be done in the way of 'sponsoring' it.

Yes the video is blurred so it's hard to really distinguish details etc.

But it looks visually great, I like the style !! The lack of colorful graphics does not seem to be a problem here.

Indeed the video is terrible, but you can still see the level of detail and lovely pixel aesthetics. I really don't mind the lack of color 🙂
