Rules of the Games Showcase
Game Development section rules
also apply here.
About this section
This section is for game projects which are either complete or have significant progress.
No new threads should be made in here. All game threads start off in the
section, and are moved here once the game is worthy of being here.
Having a playable demo does
automatically qualify your game for entry into here. The quality of that demo is what matters (along with other factors).
You should contact
this section's moderator
if you want your game's thread considered for moving here or changed in any way you can't do yourself.
The final decision on whether a thread belongs here is up to the moderator.
ask about when a beta/demo/release is going to come out.
Thread layout and content
The game's thread should use the most suitable thread prefix. It can be changed later if necessary.
It must be tidy and easy to read. It is recommended that you highlight important information (e.g. download links).
It should contain/mention all of the following:
Show what you're using to make your game.
You must indicate which engine/tools/software/kit you are using to develop your game.
An introduction to your project.
This is a concise introduction to your project (
the game itself), which can include things like why you chose to start making your game and why you chose to do it the way you did.
The plot and back-story of the game.
This should be a reasonable length, and provide a decent amount of relevant information. In particular, you should explain features and plot points unique to your game. You may also talk about characters and whatever else you want. If your game doesn't have a plot (e.g. an arcade-style game), then you should describe the game and its premise here instead.
A list of features.
This is optional, but well worth including. Mention anything that will make your game stand out, and anything that you think is important to your game or is worthy of note. This includes both features that you
to include and features that you
Screenshots/videos of game-play.
Preferably these should show things unique to your game. They should reflect the latest state of your game. The more the better, and the more diverse things they show the better. You may also include other kinds of pictures and other media if you want.
A complete list of credits.
If you use any scripts, tools and/or resources that weren't created by you, you must credit the people who made them by listing their names alongside a description of what they did. You should credit the people who created the things you used, not the people who distributed them.
A thread should only be about one game.
You should keep the first post of your thread up to date.
