Your Game 6

Post by DenisGrachev »

A new ZX-Evolution based game competition anounced! Need to mention that BaseConf of ZX Evolution supports classic 48K,128K British models timings!

Welcome to a new gamedev compo for ZX Spectrum - "Your Game 6".
Previously this competition was held in 2014 and collected 10 works:

The competition, like last time, accepts games that fully work on a bare ZX Evo board with baseconf firmware (i.e. 48K / 128K / Pentagon1024 / ATM2 / ATM3 + SD-card). The game should not require any more devices, but can support them. Voting will be conducted taking into account the system requirements of the game.

The prize fund at the moment is 155,000 rubles and can be increased with the funds of those who wish (see the contacts section below).
The main sponsor is SASPACK LLC
By popular vote, the prize is divided as follows (in the future, amounts may grow up, and other special prizes may be added):
50,000 rubles - first place
30,000 rubles - second place
20,000 rubles - third place
Moreover:
50,000 rubles - prize from the jury (the jury is determined by the main sponsor)
5,000 rubles - special prize from Alone Coder

The deadline for accepting works is October 4, 2020. The award period is within a month from this date.

The game should not be released until this date, except for the demos released before this announcement (but during the development process you can upload screenshots and video materials).
Only full games will participate in the competition, that is, not demo versions.

They should say more clearly if they accept standard Zx Spectrum games or not.

An will they have any chance against games on steroids using extra graphics modes of Zx Evo?

Thanks for the clarification! Are then TAP/TZX images accepted?

Do any of the supported configurations have contended memory?

In 48K mode, the contention is identical to the original ZX Spectrum 48K.
In 128K mode, the contention is identical to the original ZX Spectrum 128K and +2.
In other modes, there are Pentagon timings, or else turbo mode with unreliable contention (differs on all compatible machines).

ZX Evo supports TAP images.
