I'm tempted to enter as well, but I'm not sure I have the graphical prowess to make my game an actual contender....it may force me to try though!

I have a couple of mysteries I'd love to make into games, so I will probably do it for the fun of it.

There's only 3 weeks to finish a game, I'm pretty sure everyone will be using the RTP or whatever resources are currently available. There's not enough time to create completely custom graphics. Remember, work with what you have. :)

Is there a restriction on the tone? Like...can it be dark? Because I've got a few ideas i'm throwing around but the one I'm leaning towards is well....pretty &$%# dark. Or are we going for more of a teen rating here?

It'll depend, but seeing as all the judges will likely be Young adult -> Adult I'd imagine that it'll be fine. Just put fair warning in your post... like "Contains Adult Subject Matter / May Trigger etc".

Gang related violence, drugs, suicide, etc. Yea, I plan on having the adult content disclaimer. I don't want to give it all away because it's a contest otherwise i'd elaborate...basically it all adds to the mystery and isn't EXACTLY the focus of the game itself. They are more like possible answers to said mystery.

I don't see an issue (personally) with any of these, especially when compared with (and not limited to) fantasy monsters, rituals and magic, and generic, all-around gameplay of the genre.

Too busy working on my personal project to participate, but I love the prizes. I think it's a great idea to offer things like custom scripts/sprites. That's the kind of stuff we (or at least I) get excited about.

Three weeks to create a short game about a mystery. Sounds like fun!

I enjoy myself a good mystery. I just may have to get involved in this as long as time permits.

My girlfriend left a note on the fridge saying 'This isn't working, goodbye.' I opened the refrigerator and it works just fine. Weird.
