EDIT: I changed the subject.  Look below for the rules.  If you want to see a game made, let me know and we'll do it.

Sorry for the long hiatus.  School just started and I got sick.

Anyways, I have good news!  Tomarrow begins the retro remakes 2005 competition.  I thought someone here might want help out doing art or music (it's fun getting your art into an actual game.)  I'll help with art and what-not too, but I should really focus on doing the programming.

Anyways, I haven't picked a game to remake yet (I'm thinking about Kid Icarus though).  So if you want to help out, maybe we can remake a game you really want to do, like Animal Crossing or something.   ;D

Nyaaan!

Would you please link to more information about the competition? I imagine that might be useful to people considering entry.

I was going to wait to post info when the compo page actually comes up.  Until then, you can read about it in the retro remakes forum.

Oh, and I am still open to suggestions for the game to remake.   ;D

assuming apogee games fall under the restirctions of "retro"
"romancing the rose" has always had a special place in my heart

Then again, sans beating each level and getting the layout for them, it's a relatively simple game.

I have GREAT news!!!

This time, it doesn't have to be a remake!  It can be any game!  Furthermore, I have no ideas that I have to do, so...

Let me know what games you want to make!

I will program any game you want, original, remake, or a sequel to a game that had no sequel.

If you always wanted to make a game, 2D or 3D (or both), now is your chance to see it made.

The official rules are up: http://www.retroremakes.com/comp2005/index.php

Alright, let's have fun.  =)

EDIT: We'll be entering the international competition, not the UK-only compo.

EDIT 2: Post below if you're still interested and what ideas you have.  If we have time, I may be able to do 2 or 3 games.  I'll randomly pick whoever sounds the most excited.   :P

Here's a few of ideas of my own in case someone likes them:

Console-style RPG about existentialism.
A platform (SOTN style) RPG.
A strategy game (like FF Tactics).
Star Fox Remake
Kid Icarus Remake
Beatmania IIDX or Dance Dance Revolution Remake.
A cute platformer.
Super Mario Land remake.
Fighting Game
A game where you jump really high, breaking stuff along the way, into a psychedelic journey into the unknown.

I like that last one.

I also like the old VGA Apogee game "Monster Bash"

I'd love to remake that, but since you're programming it, you can choose whatever you want.

I'm at your will!

WHOO.

Evan IMed me and since we were supposed to work together on the last project (some family issues came up), we decided to work together on the first project.  Hopefully, we'll have time to work on several titles, since we have over a month.   ;D

I really can't remember much about it, but, Frostbite for the old Atari 2600 was one of my favourite games back in the days
