For the month of July, we'll be returning to a creative contest, albeit one with a much lower barrier to entry. No artistic skills, not fancy software, and no massive time investment involved here: just your cleverness, constrained only by the character count.
Your goal for this month is to pitch a video game concept. The catch: you may only use up to 140 characters. That includes spaces, punctuation, and everything else; no linebreaks allowed. In that 140 characters, you need to give us the title, genre, story, gameplay, and whatever else you think adds to your pitch.
For reference, this sentence that you're reading is a lengthy 140 characters; not an insurmountable restriction, but not an easy one either.
To enter, simply write your entry in your post using the form shown below.
Entries will be voted on by the moderators. The winner will receive 25 karma, and three to five runner-ups will split an additional 75 karma. This time as well, two randomly-selected entrants whose entries receive at least one vote (but who do not otherwise win a karma prize) will be selected to win 10 bonus karma.
Important! Please submit your pitches using the following format:
Entry: [the text of your entry goes here]
I cannot guarantee your entries will be considered if they are not in this exact format. You can include other text in the post, so long as the above text appears on its own line somewhere in your entry.
The deadline for entry will be in two weeks, on Monday, July 15th at 11:59PM EST.
Notes 1. Maximum two entries per user, but only one winning entry per user. If you enter twice and both qualify for prizes, your higher-place entry will receive the prize karma, and lower-placed entries will be bumped up.
2. The Terms of Service still apply -- don't post any entries that violate any of the Terms of Service. This includes marking spoilers if your entry contains any.
3. To change your entry, delete your original post. I won't be compiling a list of entries until the deadline passes, so as long as your post is visible at the deadline, it'll be added.
