I've got a few guitar covers of SMS tunes I've been toying with, I hope to have enough time to make them "release-able" before the deadline...

a question from a friend: since these 3 actual game entries are locked here in the forum, i guess we shouldn't make public announcements of them on social networks or in our official webpages until the deadline? (that's not a problem for us anyway, the deadline is just in 10 days - but we are curious about this)

I'd recommend against it, since there's nothing to see yet.

I'm super excited. Good thing I have already wrapped the gift, because real work is demanding my time this week. But I'm planning to "work" from home on the release day, so I can really immense myself in all the goodies :)

Is it just me, or is this year's compo exceptionally hyped? (in a good way, I mean). I really love to come by the thread to read the news.

It seems to me it's so, even if I can't really compare (I'm here just from few months before the last year's compo... so that's everything I can compare).
It might be that it's because SMSPower is going to be 18? I felt quite excited at that time too ;)

And, yes, I feel a little nerdy too...

Usually we don't get a good build up of entries until just before the deadline, so I guess the early entrants this year are helping. In years when we raised money for prizes, there was a bunch of discussion of that before the competition entries appeared.

Hi everyone!
This year I'll submit a game, I hope I'll find time and energy to polish it before the 27th.

Small demo-type games aren't minded, are they? Because a small demo is all I could get around to. XD

Damn this is going to be tight. I left my laptop power supply at a client's yesterday, laptops now dead and it has my dev environment on it. Not to worry, I had the Dev environment in google drive... so I fire it up only to find its not synced in ages and I have an old version of the code.

So hopefully I'll get the power supply back today and get it submitted by tomorrow.

I've had very little time to work on my music - I'm going to use as much of the remaining time as I can before submitting.

Chances are I'll post the entries tomorrow evening UK time. Late entries will be accepted if it's not too ridiculous.

There's no music yet, so you have a decent chance to come first...

Tomorrow? I thought

Deadline is 27th March 2015. You may choose to interpret that in any reasonable way.


meant that entries submitted on the 27th would be valid... (yeah, I'm trying to advocate for everyone which could be just a bit late...)

Sorry, I forgot what day it is. Make that Friday evening, and procrastinators can submit a bit later and I'll try to get to them on Saturday.

not 100% exact - i'd say i'm a "true" author of just one of them

the other two are a kind of "team work", i'm just humbly helping porting these other 2 games to this contest, and the original author asked me to submit them here! ;) - btw, about these two games, all credits goes to the original developer of them! ;)

about more games, perhaps on the next smspower competition, or submitted in the homebrew area in the meanwhile! ;)

Service announcement: How to kill time while you wait for this year's releases
Post Posted: Fri Mar 27, 2015 8:44 am
Last edited by hang-on on Fri Mar 27, 2015 12:29 pm; edited 1 time in total
You could of course just continue with your regular day job. But you could also act on the fact that you are going to spend most of the day in here while waiting for this year's releases...

May I humbly suggest: Write a review of your favorite (or maybe not-so-favorite) game!

Go to the review section and check out the games that have already been reviewed: http://www.smspower.org/forums/f10-Reviews

If you want to review a game that has not already been reviewed, go to the game's page here on SMS-Power, and locate the right sidebar with data for the game. Where it says "Rating" you click "Create topic", and Alex Kidd creates a topic for this game in the review section. Go there, and write your review. Don't forget to vote.

Please note the guidelines from the sticky. Write your independent review - don't discuss the existing reviews.

edit: Reduced wall of text :)
