(I have two questions for the competition if anyone can answer them please)
1. I heard that esc can be used to open up a menu from a previous post, does that mean a full menu or just to save/quit?
2. Do the resources have to be fully yours? Or can you use free sound effects found on the internet...
1. I'm assuming that Sandy means you can use ESC like it's normally used - to go back to the main menu or to quit. Of course, you may want to have some sort of prompt ("do you want to go back to the main menu?"). As far as I can tell, that is also allowed.
2. You should have rights to the resources you are using, not because they will disqualify you if you don't, but for legal issues. You can use free sound effects on the internet if they are in fact (royalty) free. However, they're not probably not going to disqualify you even if you use copyrighted sounds.
Hey guys, check out all the simple platformers that have been made so far...
I'm betting we will get a ton of submissions like this.
I've had a few ideas for special sorts of platformers, but I'm gonna have to keep them secret for now
