DBF Challenge theme
« on: April 13, 2018 »

I'm willing to setup a new DBF challenge and need your help for theme suggestions.
This time will be only a challenge and not a "competition" which means -> no voting, so everyone entering will be receiving our precious "karma" points. :)

That said, one of my ideas for a challenge would be choose a theme based on Pixel Dailies theme for a specific day and have a month to develop around that theme.

Please post your ideas below.

I cool with you're idea rbz.

but my suggestion would be to do a simple animated menu screen or a title/credits screen. for example ..
matrix rain intro to the matrix movie.
or a game menu screen like
megaman on the NES or
metroid prime for the game cube

should be easy to bang one out in a months time.

I like those ideas!

Here's another to put in the hat:
Survival of the Fittest

Create a simple eco-system with at least 3 kinds of life - plants, prey and predators.
When the program runs, predators chase prey, prey seeks plants and flees from predators and plants spread gradually.
Each life form has a finite life span, but this can vary among individuals among with other aspects such as their speed, etc.

Maybe I've overcomplicated my explanation.

Love all of those ideas!

Liked most of the pixel daily themes I saw. Is there a more tidy list of themes to go over?

Also love the idea of a title/intro/credits screen. And k+ for linking the metroid intro, amazing music and atmosphere.

Ecosystem simulation is a personal fascination, longstanding item on my own todo list. Might be a bit complex.

And another suggestion: open dbf theme, anything dbf goes.
