Submissions wanted: Woot! 2018

HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

Bearing in mind that it's the official start of the festive season, I'd like to make a call for submissions for the Woot! 2018 Tape Magazine.

Pretty much anything is welcome: games; minigames; demos; music; art; articles, can be polemic; SCREEN$; gags, or ideas for them; cartoons etc.

It'll need an AY track to accompany the mag part if anyone's up for that.

Even if you just have an idea for a cartoon, article, fake interview, gag or mashup idea post or PM it so that I can realise it.

Break out the sherry and mince pies, and check out the 2016 & 2017 editions for inspirations. If anyone could spread the word outside of SC, that'd be nice.

The deadline is the 9th December. I know that's soon, but I need to have it finished early in the month.

@ffumanchu, I've had a PM off you, but I can't see it, possibly because your mailbox is full. If in doubt use the email addy I sent you.

If you have a lot of material, perhaps we could put it all together in a standalone demo with music. I'm keen to see these!

Ta for this. BTW don't forget to zip them if they are .scr :-)

Does anybody fancy contributing a short review of Mighty Final Fight and/or Ninja Gaiden to appear in the tape magazine?

I’m doing other reviews, but don’t feel I’m the best person to do these two games justice.

Hi Dave, I could do them. Just let me know:
- how many words (about) for each review?
- should I include some images?
- should I include a final rating? if so, overall or divided into categories (graphics, sound, playability etc.)?

Good man!

~500 words (can be more if you feel it's really justified)
no images, I'll include part of a screengrab to go alongside it
I'm not doing a rating with mine, but if you want to then one overall would be best.

The magazine part is coming together quite nicely. Doing these tape magazines are the only times I have problems with memory space—the 48K is nearly full. Though I shouldn't be surprised when using so many compressed SCREEN$—thank god for ZX7.

I've not had any minigames, utilities or demos yet; is anyone planning to submit anything? Dec 8th is a tight deadline I know, but we're only after short things that are fun rather than top quality (though epic and top quality is also welcome).

Hello, deadline is the 8th? Earlier up it says the 9th! I'm used to software deadlines being extended but not reduced!

I have been making a game, should be ready next weekend & I'll send you a private message if it's ready then. It's more of a Christmas cracker novelty than an epic new masterpiece, still I started on it in September and it's been fun to make so far.....

My mistake. The 9th Dec is correct. Though it's more a deadline for me to finish my bits. I could hang on a week after that as long as it's a standalone submission.

Sounds perfect. The best bit is getting the mag released, and relaxing with a bit of time to play the submissions. Cheers!
