FAQ:
 ​
Why the pizes are so crappy?
uh, well its Crap Game Compo :D . Prizes should be crappy   :D
 ​
Can i code a game in terminal?
Yes. ​
 ​
What code language to use?
Any language you want​
 ​
The game should be OpenSourced?
Nope. Any License will be ok [but not commercial]​
 ​
Can i port the game and enter the contest?
Nope, sorry. Game should be OpenPandora exclusive while compo is running. After compo you can port it everywhere you want. ​
 ​
But why?
You know, Christmas soon, lets give something exclusive to OP community in christmas, without expecting any big prizes. Its not a big efford to make a crappy game, right?​
 ​
But why CRAP?
'Crap' its a metaphor. Create any kind of game that you want. And dont be afraid that game you created is crappy... I hope many of you will enter the contest, because everyone have the chance to be on first place​
 ​
 ​
Why such a ridiculous idea?
Its just the continuation of excellent Nick's Spoon Crap Game Competition from GP2X days that i really miss​
 ​
What about game theme?
The more ridiculous concept & execution, the better! You want to create a porn shoot em up?​
Potato Peeling Emulator Game? This is a contest for U :D
 ​
Bonus: 
If you'll need an inspiration for Game, fire up GINGE:
and download some first class crap games from nick spoon compo [that NSA dont want you to know :D ]:

First game for contest, my entry:

Whack-a-Troll - created especially for StreaK's Crap Game Compo 2013 

This is a nubs/touchscreen game where you need to whack a troll using blueberries. You have only 6 blueberries in hand and infinte in pocket [on right]. So you'll need to grab some from pocket if you throw all blueberries from your hand. Of course there's a 3 minutes time limit. Enjoy

Strongly advised to play in WOT using touchscreen than nubs. It will be much harder when using NUBS..

My record is currently: 130 points. :D

My girlfiend record: 125 points :]

Game License: Freeware / Closed Source

Screens in attachment..

Download:

http://repo.openpandora.org/?page=detail&app=wat-app

BTW. This game was coded in 1,5 hours, so if you code your game longer than i was , you are already a winner :D

Dont forget to comment game and post some of Your high scores here..

Well, I guess it's rather about originality than about good realization.

I have, in the last few hours, put together a game this is, while dreadful, playable.

I might well enter this.

Compared to the prizes of Nick's Spoon Crap Game Competition the prizes are actually very good :)

  • 1st prize: 20p and a Toffee Crisp.
  • 2nd prize: The bitter taste of defeat.
  • 3rd prize: The even more bitter taste of defeat by the 2nd prize winner.

What!? You saying a Toffee Crisp is a bad prize!? Shame on you! :)

Not really. The purpose of the competition is to release a game. Real winner is an OP community. 

I understand that people didnt get used to this kind of "contest without contest*". If you're releasing a game you're already a winner no matter what place you'll get but the biggest winner is a whole community. This is a main purpose of this contest.

I dont want to spoil what game should get more votes, the worst from the list or maybe the best [most playable] from the list, because it will be community choice [and its the whole purpose of this contest, "expect the unexpected"]. Lets give 'em games to play and vote.   

If Crap Games Competition will be big success, i promise i'll do another one in 2014

* - As you can see, the prizes are slighly crappy, and getting 1st place or win the prize shouldnt be main motivation for developer. I think main motivation for every dev should be "fun in development of a game", wether its crap or hit. So, enjoy while making a game, and release it on Crap Games Competition 2013.

@commander-beef:

Where's the logo (even your game didn't seem to have one)? Or does that just mean that a game should mention the name of the competition?

About winning. Maybe the worst game should win but the loser (who makes the best game) would also get a price. But that's just my idea. Do whatever you want.

I'm aiming for a bad game anyway (well, it's almost completed already). And of course that has nothing to do with me lacking the skills to actually make a good game  :p

Im just preparing a logo, but if you add an info "Released for Crap Game Competition 2013" in welcome screen , that will be OK..

BTW. I updated Whack-a-Troll entry in repo:

- More challenging edition called "Extreme Crap Edition"

- 3 trolls to whack instead of 2

- Points reset fix

- Small fixes.

BTW. This version is really funny and challenging. My highscore 193 Points..

I think, that it would be better to have a very short time limit for such a competition.

F.E. : The game has to be written in 2 weeks beginning with the announcement of the competition.
