A ridiculous deadline is exactly what I need!
This will be my first competition. I’ll be working mostly in Flash, with Audacity and maybe Fruity Loops for audio. Feeling very vanilla compared to some of the other tools people are choosing, but it’s what I know.
I also wanted to clarify the rules about personal libraries. It’s alright to prepare some generic code as long as I don’t DO anything with the those elements that would constitute a game, is that right? So for example, if I were thinking of creating a board game – base code for dice, tokens and a board would be alright? That seems like the board game equivalent of a physics engine (which I know is ok) but I want to make sure I’m within bounds before I prep.
