So, who's entering the csscgc 2007?

Anybody entering the comp.sys.sinclair Crap Games Copmo 2007?

I'm thinking of entering this year. I put two games in in 2005, Kilroy's Caravan Capers and Bus Shelter Destroyer, which both gained admirably low scores. :)

You can have a look-see at them here:

Couldn't motivate myself to enter in 2006, but I've got a few ideas cooking for 2007.

Anybody else thinking of entering this year?

And what about the WOS crap games compo? Is anybody organising one of them this year? I wouldn't mind entering that either. :)

    I've already sent one, and it's about senseless teenage vandalism just like Bus Shelter Destroyer. The game consists of dropping stones from a motorway flyover :o

    That sounds like a cracking idea for a game.

    Wish I'd thought of that one myself... :)
  • edited May 2007
    At least the idea is good, the rest is abysmal. I think that it will made a superb crap game.
    Oh, I forgot to mention that it has an integrated karaoke! Wow!

    Advanced programming - bound to gain you some extra crappo points...

    my entry was looking excellent but I gave up on it. I should reinstall that BASIC editor thing and get back onto it.
  • edited May 2007
    I'm sure I'll put one in eventually. I'm still waiting for inspiration to strike, but the basic plan is to come up with a bright idea and then spend a couple of hours with BASin completely messing it up. :smile:

    I'm thinking of doing another Freescape game this year, after the "Advanced Shed Simulator" I did for '06.

    I reckon I'm gonna submit "Resident Evil -1"
  • edited May 2007
    I have an idea for "Super ScottieUK's Dance Simulator". I was inspired by his YouTube videos.

    /Hope I get time to do it though.
    //Rumours that I was going to submit a "Super NickH Radio Interview Simulator" are completely unfounded.

    I will be joining the competition! As long as there is no rule about the age of the games I have several candidates.

    I have spent some time restoring old tapes and found many games I made as a child twenty years ago, and they are not all that good.. :smile:

    Some sneak previews for now:

    Znap Shot: Arcanoid clone, very slow

    Eliminator: Some kind of exploring game

    Shooting Training: First subgame of a not finished military game

    Wolf Saboteur: Platform game where you for some reason are chased by a wolf

    Turtles 1: Ninja Turtles game part one

    Turtles 2: Second turtles game I made for my smaller sister who liked the Ninja Turtles back then

    All entries are of course pure BASIC!

    While we have the sets for each year available in the archive, the set for 2005 is strangely missing.
    Does anyone know where to get it (or can provide it)?
  • edited May 2007
    May submit the second part of the Maggot Invasion adventure, which is far, far worse than last years Part 1. Plus I do have something new to offer, and it's very crap indeed. :) Im quite chuffed about it.

    I've nearly finished my Joey Deacon Olympic challenge game, and am working on a new game 'Professional Jamie Oliver simulator'.

    I've an idea for a new game called TURBAN STRIKE, but i think it might be a bit controversial.

    I have a copy here, I can upload it if you want?
    My rubbish website including the redrawn Amstrad schematics and the new home of the Sinclair FAQ wiki.

    Nothing...that's the point :) ... in order to remain 'PC', I've had to write games for ALL religions (however daft they may be), whether that be Jet Set Jew (a.k.a. Rabid Rabbi), Ivy Tilsley's Catholic Condom Capers, or the official Waco simulator.

    ... eagerly awaiting to hear the names of proposed games based on atheists/agnostics/skepticits/etc :lol: :p

    I am considering making a series of games starring a blind man, with names like:

    1. Blind Man Hits the Town
    ...in which the Blind Man suffers a series of hilarious mishaps as he goes out for a night on the tiles,

    and...

    2. Blind Man Goes on a Date
    ...in which the Blind Man goes on a date and suffers a similar series of hilarious mishaps as he goes on a date.

    I'm also thinking of making a Ultimate Epilepsy Simulator.

    Anybody else got any ideas for entries for this year's Crap Games Compo?

    As an ex-epileptic might I ask if you have any plans beyond the title? I suggest you might do it DT's Decathlon style, pressing random keys in a frenzy so that you can induce mouth froth to fling at your adversaries?

    Yes. Ultimate Epileptic Stimulator in which said epileptic gets into Lunar Jetman's mystical trailer for a stimulating ride. The crap bit would be no obvious endgame.

    Who's be hosting the entry page this year? Can newbies take part?
    With a top title in pre-production our talentless bandits may be contenders..


    "LOST"
    Based on the US hit series of the same name and featuring an all-new character EXCLUSIVE TO THE SPECTRUM - who's been "waiting in the WINGS" to bring this puzzle to a thrilling-chilling-killing conclusion!

    Game Features.
    Superb Opening Credits (followed by sh**-load of adverts)
    The Button - a REALTIME opportunity to save the islanders!
    Unique plot LOOPS - lordy!
    The Numbers - they are evil I tell thee.
    Sid James*

    What makes the title strong is its open-ended structure featuring REM and GOSUB statements. Plus RND. No game will EVER be the same twice!

    *- subject to negotiation, may be replaced by fatty jakes

    I submitted an entry into the 2006 CGC around November time ("704"). I plan to do better and get it in at maximum 6 hours before the official closing deadline. It has to be done.

    How about:

    Agrivated Atheist:
    You are an Atheist who has to avoid all the blinding messages from God, miracles, etc..
    You have to see how long you can remain faithless for.


    I think I am onto something there!

    I was gonna suggest Angry Athiest, then scrolled down and seen your reply, I like your description a lot :D

    Andrew, losing your faith sucks big time, it`s like losing your life (almost)... seriously :)

    I'd like to think that anyone who loses their faith is actually gaining something better in the process. :smile:

    I gained raging alholism, chainsmoking and a deep dependance on dope, lol ;) Oh, and a reputation as a fool/chatterbox.

    LMAO

    When is the deadline for entries? And is there a website for it?
    My entry for last years compo wasn't complete in time due to workload and laziness... I may try to get it finished for this years compo instead, tho' I'm already stupidly busy for the rest of the year :/

    Hmmm....

    How about...



    MORMON MEL (a.k.a. Church of the Latter Day Punks)

    Mel the Bell has become a mormon. The object of the game being to freak out as many people as possible with his shiny eyes and tambourine, whilst avoiding the temptation of masturbation.

    That's fantastic, Simon. Love it. You gotta do it!
