[size=24pt]LINK TO COMPETITION[/size]

On Tuesday the 1st of May 2012, at 0:00am GMT, you will have three months to make an RPG (see Rules for details).

You must then submit your RPG by Wednesday the 1st of August 2012, at 0:00am GMT, after which the winners will be decided.

This will be the grand finale of Competition Four Digits 2011/2012, a competition three times longer than any other in the year!

[size=24pt]RULES:[/size]
1. The aim of the competition is to develop entirely your own game within the time limit (1st May - 1st August). You MUST submit your final game before the 1st of August 2012. You will have to keep up to date with my blog posts to find out how to submit your final game.
2. You MUST have stated you are going to enter before the 1st of May 2012.
3. You MUST NOT include anything in the game that you don't have full permission to use or significant amounts of game content that you had already made prior to the competition.
4. Your final game MUST have "RPG elements", specifically relating to the gameplay (eg anything such as experience points, inventories, quests, turn-based combat, etc. Fantasy themes and long storylines are common in RPGs, but not related to the gameplay).
5. There are no programming language/game engine restrictions except that the game MUST run on Windows 7. Your game shouldn't require additional software installation (unless you really need to do so).
6. Don't be a cheater.
7. ONE entry per person, maximum team of FOUR.
8. I reserve the right to update or otherwise change the rules and to disqualify any entrant who breaks the rules.

**Number of copies depends on number of team members. See first footnote.

Remember, this is a communal effort! This competition is only for fun. If you want prizes, give as you wish to receive. Suggested donations would be Steam games, Amazon vouchers or something similar, rather than cash.

I hope you take the time to check it out!
NB: This is a non-profit competition hosted on a non-profit website.

I want you to want to compete against others for the glory of winning. The prizes are a bonus.

For example of contest with no prizes, see "Ludum Dare". You may have heard of it.

and lol when I registered to this site I accidentally wrote "toasy" instead of "toast"

Well I love game competitions but I'm always busy making my own projects so I can't afford to do anything other than the odd Ludum Dare.

It's currently $90 total ($50 cash and $40 steam), and the other prizes have been updated too. Prizes are getting updated about once a day, but I can't update here that often.

I'll update this post in a day or two.
