Apologies, I wasn’t sure cause there is a strategic element to it. Sending you a follow up pm.

for those new to AppGameKit and maybe using the Trial version for this competition (and those who wish to flesh out their collection), today is the last day for the AppGameKit Bundle on Fanatical: https://www.fanatical.com/en/bundle/appgamekit-bundle-2.

meanwhile, it would be nice to see screenshots or vids posted here of your progress thus far. if you have a WIP thread, make sure to link to it, as well (click the [TD] link in my signature to see those). if you don't have a separate thread, make sure to include [TD] in the thread title to be included in the search.

otherwise, the list of participants on itch.io is growing. please join up if you haven't already https://itch.io/jam/agk-community-competition-tower-defense and help spread the word.

Here's a link to my (noneligible) entry: Infection

And the latest screenshot:


Still stress testing really. There's no way you would have that many enemies on screen at once in a normal game.
And they are all just randomly coloured until I can decide which ones look best

with just over 3 weks until the deadline, i'm hoping everyone is getting along fine with their submissions?

if anyone has met a hurdle, feel free to post here (or on discord) and we'll see you over.

otherwise, with no recent updates to the various [TD] project threads, it' hard to gage where we're at. can we get a pong to this ping?

I'm still working on mine - not that it matters because it's not eligible for a prize but that isn't stopping me

I'm in. It is unclear where to send the game and how to register your participation in the contest. Is it enough just to place the game on itch.io?

i was going to post when i got home from work but i'm still stuck, so:

all TD Submissions are to be made via the itch.io page: https://itch.io/jam/agk-community-competition-tower-defense.

and, before you do, please make sure to review The Rules.

the Community channel @ itch has been opened for participants to discuss and provide feedback on Submissions. as well.

as the comp is winding down, we sincerely hope you've had some fun navigating the challenge and we look forward to experiencing your creations

Well I hope people are ready because I just tweaked my entrée and it plays almost just like plants verses zombies. it looks and feels just like a studio game.

This is fun to be honest.

Good to have you onboard!

There's just 16 days left. Time for everyone to show some screenshots. There's not enough time for anyone to steal your idea so let's see what you're all up to

How about the Jury creates a small tutorial on how to setup the game, index.html and itchio website for the best user experience ?
While I support TGC, show the TGC Logo, and refer to the TGC Websites i don't support it when the generated html code is finicky to embed into websites and clashes with fullscreen mode and sorts

i see the confusion and have changed it to the following:
Quote: "All Prizes will be Awarded via Email.
Cash Awards will be sent via PayPal only.
Should you win any Award, expect prompt Communication regarding PayPal, CraftPix.net Memberships and/or delivery of Hands On AppGameKit Studio e-Books (which can be Gifted to an alternate Email Address).
Any Email Address provided will only be used for the purposes of this Competition."

bottom line, i'll contact winners via email and ask what gets sent where

please do it's all for fun.

and, i want to say that i appreciate everyone's effort and energy whether you were able to meet the deadline or not. the amount of creativity and camaraderie displayed throughout is humbling to be a part of.

now, go play the submissions and post some feedback. i've been playing a number of them since they started trickling in and i'll go back through all of them over this week and we judges could use your feedback.

Yes, good luck every one.

If one thing.

This comp forced me to complete a full game demo and release it.

And now my plans for this game are a full game, Now I have a full game engine built so the rest of this game will not take a long time to build.

it looks like you can update anytime. it seems the itch system locks the submission as the original/pre-deadline version separate from whatever you do after the deadline.

tower of 2 has updated theirs on their game page but i confirmed the download on the submission page is the original.

some follow-up. i have no idea how they updated it where the project page disallows uploads on mine.

i can delete it but no idea how i would upload a replacement.

i know another user is investigating the "option", as well but i have no time to investigate further for myself (work calls).

Final Rankings are complete and i've submitted them to itch.io. Hopefully they appear before too long.

Alas, you don't have to wait. See attached

I'm going to take a break and will begin making contact with all Prize Winners soon.

Congrats to all

Add: So i figured out how to push the results on itch

Congratulations to all the winners!
It's been fun participating and trying out each other's games!

Unfortunately life gave me too many obligations and I didn't have the time to finish my game before the deadline!
But I will update my game with a polished, way more original version tomorrow or very soon. (still haven't figured out how to use Vishnu packaging tool the way I want to )

ha! catch your breath already?

i know big prizes are nice but how many would enter a comp just for fun?

i will say that i'm pleased with the ratio of submissions to participants which seemed higher than many others i've seen on itch.

i was worried we wouldn't have enough submissions to fill the prizes for a while and then additional submissions started trickling in unexpectedly. sneaky!

and then i worried if i would have enough time to give them all solid runs/evaluations.

so, a lotta work & worrying, yes but, all worth it!

I would also like to thank you for this wonderful competition.
It was a new experience for me. To take part in such a competition.
It was fun.
I also congratulate the winners.
So I wouldn't mind if this would become an annual event.
And the 2 - 3 months time to create the game was reasonable.

neither would i

and, trust me when i say that blink @ scraggle were a large part of this competition. i might have been the one doing most of the "talking" but it couldn't have gone off without them.

meanwhile, i've updated the First post to include a link to the Final Results post so anyone reading this thread in the future can jump right to it. See "Winners", there.

and, FYI. TGC has agreed to allow unique badges for the competition which i've been working on ideas. i hope to have them ready sooner than later so watch this space.

i'm no artist so things like this that might take an hour for some take me days! i wish i'd have thought of it sooner so they'd be ready, but... another lesson i've learned.

I think that would bring a lot more people to the game creators also.

in time comp after comp people would see the good potential of app game kit.

Hi there,

I'm pretty new to this AppGameKit thing and just want to thank you for organizing
the competition. I was thinking for a long time to make a tower defense game,
so it was a good opportunity to start something and to keep me engaged.

speaking of badges, most of the submissions would look great in the AppGameKit Showcase: https://www.appgamekit.com/showcase (hint, hint)

let me know when it's approved and i'll be sure to badge you up. perhaps link to the comp's itch page in the showcase, there, to spread the love? https://itch.io/jam/agk-community-competition-tower-defense

meanwhile, the comp definitely provided nice additions to the made-with-agk tag @ itch.

so much "positive" coming from the comp, we'll have to do it again sometime
