[๐Ÿ†] mashup mania

This event/competition/challenge is started by me and all the currencies, rewards, and prizes are handled by me, not Hopscotch. You can find other similar self-started events in Competitions & Events, or even start one yourself. Because this is started by me, Hopscotch and the forum leaders are not involved or responsible in any of the transactions here.


Welcome to ๐— ๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ต๐˜‚๐—ฝ ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ฎ :trophy:

In a nutshell: take two of your favorite games, and fusion them to create a new game! It should not be a complete game - the goal of your demo or game sample is to catch the audienceโ€™s attention!!

Curious note: instead of requesting full games (which yall will not have the motivation to make), demos/game samples are actually awesome, fun, and quick to make!

General information

  • Your goal in this competition is to create a demo or game sample of a bigger, imaginary game - kinda like a promotional mini game irl. You can either:
    • create a demo: a much more textual project. Your goal is to catch the audienceโ€™s attention into playing your future, imaginary game. [example by @StarlightStudios]
    • or create a game sample: a sample of a bigger, imaginary game. Your goal is to make the audience enjoy your game sample, even with very few levels available in the public version. [example by @Spy_Guy_96 [1]]
  • Your demo, or game sample, must be a mashup of 2 or 3 real games only - no more, no less. โ€œReal gamesโ€ can refer to hopscotch projects, app store games, .io games, etc etc;

  • Your demo, or game sample, should not be complete - it must only feature a few levels to capture the audience attention;

  • You can only submit one project, and your submission must be done from scratch - updates are not accepted [im sorry sls] :(

  • You have exactly 21 days to finish the demo, or game sample - the comp ends at Tuesday, August 29, 2023 12:00 AM

Judging

There will be two parts to the judging - I will first narrow down the submissions to 5 finalists, then a community poll will have the last words.

And no, I do not accept judges - too much to handle. You kinda is already judging by participating in the community vote.

The community poll is simple; you vote for your favorite. However, to narrow down projects, i, me only, will use the following criteria:

Criteria Description Points
Hybridity Can we clearly distinguish the two (or three) games that has been mixed to create this demo? Are the mechanisms of the final product accurate to the original games? How much effort has been put to mix the games the most smoothly possible? 10
Creativity How creative did you go desperate having to accurately mashup the chosen games? 5
Complexity and design How much effort has been put into creating and designing the demo? 10
Fun/Catchiness Is your game sample fun/Is your demo catchy? 5

Prizes

If you skipped everything above go back smh /srs

a) Participation prize: everybody who enters will get 15 seeds
b) Grand prize: top 5 (aka community vote finalists) will receive 70 seeds each; every top 3 will receive an extra 60 seeds; and the top 1 will receive another 50 seeds. This means you can get up to 180 seeds just from the grand prize.
c) Discobot raffle: 5 prizes of 20 seeds each will randomly get distributed by Discobot itself!!
d) Other tickets: to be verified with my collaborator o.O

a) b) c) d) layering helps me distributes the prizes.

okay - but remember you should not submit an entire game, so you could potentially have time! ;)

Iโ€™m not so great at combining games to create a cool demo. Plus, I didnโ€™t know it would work like thisโ€ฆ

for real? so yk my thought was as long as its a game sample of an hybrid game, anything can be submitted o.O

lol some people do that so yeah xD

9 Likes

Yeah my game isnโ€™t based off of any game that exists so it canโ€™t be submitted and itโ€™s not a hybrid anyways

Can we make the rest of the game later?

of course - the competition is about making a game sample or demo of a fictional, imaginary game - its up to you to decide whether youโ€™ll actually make that fictional game or not

aaaand the requirements for that fictional game is that its a mashup of 2 or 3 real games - just so that everybody isnโ€™t going in every possible directions haha
