ZX Dev Conversions

Post by Ivanzx » Fri Nov 17, 2017 10:03 pm

As most of you already probably know, we are running the ZX Dev Conversions compo, which is a compo where any game which is a conversion from another game, movie, TV Series, cartoon, books, or mangas can be submitted :)

So far we have 15 entries and the level is being absolutely brilliant. Games can be submitted until 20th January and before being announced anywhere they have to be presented in the ZX Dev Conversions forums ;)

And if you want to become a judge and decide the winners, with only supporting the compo with a prize (can be any amount you desire, no limits) you will be one of them.

Right now we are close to 750€ prizes for the contestants!


Here is the link to the Compo forums:

This compo is already a big success!

I'm going to join it soon with some desperate jump on the train at the last moment:)

And I am expecting more projects in the next weeks! :o

I think, besides what some people said in WoS, the prize helps attracting and motivating people ;)

And of course, personally I am looking forward to seeing what you are preparing, and I love platform games ;)

It's doing better every year, very encouraging.

That's a prize and a half.

What's the crack with your sponsor? From what I can tell it's a scrap yard that has a side interest in flash games (and ZX Game development).

The owner of the scrap yard, Juanfra, is a member of the team of the page and podcast El Mundo Del Spectrum (The world of spectrum), he is a phenomenal Spectrum collector (he has an impressive collection, even a C5) and a really amazing person too :)

We are now introducing the people who will be the jury and therefore will be deciding the winners!

If anybody wants to join the jury, remember that the only thing that needs to be done is backing the prize with the amount you feel like and automatically you will be a judge ;)

The judges look like good chaps, but as I say over there, it would be good to get a more international panel to reflect the entries.

I invited many people, and made it public in WoS, Tweeter, and even Spectrum Facebook groups with near 10.000 members and where 90% of the people are british, and nobody looked excited about it, so... :( I have the feeling that they prefer playing Manic Miner over and over again than paying attention to new releases.

That's a shame, don't feel too disheartened though as there are more games every year in the contest.

Does nobody here fancy it? You need to make a tiny donation in order to be a judge, but in return you get the power to crush another person's dreams.

And you can even donate 10 cents and become a judge, there is no limit down and up regarding the amount ;)

But don´t worry, Dave, there are still like 15 more judges to be introduced! Being one of them Neil from Indieretronews ;)
