Yesterday I launched IndieKombat, a site dedicated to one-on-one game development contests. The first bout was announced like so:
We asked Farbs’ public relations manager for further clarification.
“Farbs statement clearly embodies the issuance of challenge, whereby both parties (Fearon and McFarbs) are bound to Indie Kombat. Both parties may spend up to one (1) hour per working day between the date of issue and the date four weeks thereafter developing a single video game, built from pre-existing video game components. In this particular case both parties may draw upon source material from the Fishie Fishie and SYNSO series. Once both games achieve public release the contest enters a voting phase, lasting no longer than one (1) week. Interested parties are invited to submit votes for the most deserving game. The winner is to be the developer of whichever game receives the most votes. The loser is to carry the forfeit of the name Fearon.”
Farbs’ Fishie Vs SYNSO is now hotly anticipated, with Fearon’s SYNSO vs Fishie drawing early criticism for its cumbersome title.
IndieKombat also includes a small hot-or-not style minigame, whereby you can help determine which indie dev is the indiest and even measure your own indiehood. Much <3 goes to the TIGDb project for making this possible.
Captain Jameson development resumes now. Today I’m planning quest structures.
