So, if it wasn't for our faithful twitter monkey you might be forgiven for thinking that everything had gone quiet here at Retrochallenge HQ. Truth is that, like so many entrants this year, real-life has been making too many unwelcome intrusions, Apologies ex post.
Just as I was about to write this post I came across an email from the cctalk mailing list for the Mini Game Competition which is now running until November 2012:
For those who aren't familiar this is a competition to write the best game they can in the category of under 1k, 2k, or 4k of code for various (usually 8-bit) platforms. They have some screen shots of previous programs that have competed to see what sort of stuff comes out of it. I always find it entertaining.
It looks like the kind of thing that Retrochallengers would be interested in – head over to http://minigamecompo.weebly.com/index.html for more details.
The breadth of entrants this year has been matched by the quality of many submissions. I can tell now that picking winners will be no easy task. So please continue all your hard work – we're on the downhill slope now…
