Unfortunately this didn't get enough signups  :( - if you're still interested though I might do another one later.

Hello pixel arters!  Hello moderators, sorry if this is not a good place to post this!

I'm hosting TIC-80 game development contest-

The TIC-80 is one of those fantasy consoles, a retro computer that never existed, complete with a 16 color limit.  It's tailored to game making though - there's a platformer tutorial that's very short for instance, and you could use that as a basis for your game if you wanted to stick to art.

If it's interesting to you, the details are here!

I'm also posting on a couple other forums.

Edit: Confused 2018 with 2019

Oh wait, that looks like the one place I can't create new topics.  Well here goes nothing!  Posting in the devlog board with a plea to the moderators to have mercy on me.

Yeah, I think that's the case.  It might also be possible to swap palettes mid-game?  Don't quote me on that though...

I'm not sure but I think they're unrelated, with TIC-80 being inspired by the latter?  Pico-8 is closed source and Tic-80 open, and they handle some stuff like export differently which doesn't seem to be a purposeful thing.

Thanks, I appreciate the sentiment! 

That makes sense.  It's nothing too special, a 1 month gamedev contest with a theme that will be announced when it starts.  I'm organizing it to help test a micropayment platform backend (the target is coin-op games, whatever that might be imagined to be) but all the money for testing and the competition results will be provided.  I have a more detailed writeup, but I'm not sure when providing details becomes the actual contest advertisement  :)

This is the TIC-80 by the way, - as a deliberately restricted experience it only lets you use 16 colors.

for the TIC-80 retro computing platform.  I didn't find any rules that forbid it and it seems thematically correct, but I wanted to confirm first.

Is this okay?

Hello, I'm rendaw :)

I love and have dabbled with pixel art, but I tell myself I'll do more once I've made some pixel art software.  But I am getting there!

I actually was looking for somewhere to ask a mod if it's okay to post about a small pixel art gamedev contest in one of the forums here.  And I guess once I complete the pixel art software I might post about that too?

Honored to be here in any case!
