The Game Creators Christmas competition

Dark Basic/GDK Pro users challenged to create a scrolling game.

During these cold, dark nights, are you looking for something to warm up your creative juices!? Well, The Game Creators have come up with another great competition for game developers everywhere!

In a recently announced competition, The Game Creators (TGC) is requesting games of a horizontal or vertical scrolling nature and, with Christmas approaching, all entries need to feature Santa! The deadline for the competition is 28 th November and all entries need to use Dark Basic or GDK Pro.

There are three prizes including a $100 voucher to spend in the excellent TGC game store which includes an array of great gaming development software such as First Person Shooter Creator (FPSC) and DarkBasic Pro.

The Game Creators’ Financial Director, Rick Vanner, said “Jumping games like Doodle Jump on the iPhone have pretty simple game mechanics. So this genre of game should be a cinch for our creative community to code. I can't wait to see what our loyal fans will by putting Santa to task with!”
