A bit of short notice, but we've having a small game creation contest starting this Friday, June 13 at
20:00 GMT Sunday
The contest starts when the theme is announced on Friday — then you have to write a game with that theme before the contest ends on Sunday!
Think it's impossible to write a game in just 2 days? The key is to come up with a fun and creative idea that won't take a lot of time to implement. You'll also have to manage your time well, not letting yourself get stuck on little details, and deciding when (or if) to sleep! It's a lot of fun, and a huge adrenaline rush!
You're not limited to only Rubygame — you can use whatever you like, as long your game is written in Ruby. That could be Gosu, Ruby-Opengl, Ruby/SDL, Rails (for a web game), or even just a text game with plain Ruby. It's up to you.
Even if you can't dedicate the full weekend to writing a game (especially on short notice, if this is the first you heard about it), you could write a simple little game in an afternoon and evening, just for the fun and experience.
I hope you'll join us in writing a game with Ruby this weekend!
