i am hereby announcing that i want to hold a virtual boy coding competition soon. but first i want to check if there is at least some interest and what you guys think about it. the prizes might be a flashboy and/or pvb shirts. :)

- would you participate? or is there anything that holds you back?
- if the vbjaengine would be released before the compo or meanwhile, would you want to utilize it?
- how long should it run? 4 months?
- should already released projects be allowed? (with the addition of the compo splash screen and some visible updates)

Fantastic idea! I have a few comments. I don't think that old projects should be allowed to enter, unless they are a work in progress now, because I'd like quite a few more games for the VB. . I'd have a go but I have no programming experience apart from HTML and nobody will teach me.

And to give any programmers ideas, why not create a little suite of applications for the Virtual Boy that would run out of one game, like the Wii Menu? That'd be fun, if you could implement 3D and possibly stick a few games with it.

And what about another platformer game for the Virtual Boy? There aren't too many of those.

Not only will this competition do good for the Virtual Boy Homebrew Development scene, but it will probably increase the sales of the FlashBoy if there are some good turnouts.

Who will judge the competition?

Best would be an open vote after the competition, I think.

That'd be cool, but I don't think I've got enough time to be able to join in the fun.

too bad. :( even if the competition runs until august? if you don't have time to write something new you could also just dig out some old, unreleased project(s). ;)

It'd be interesting to know how many flashboy owners are using them for development, vs for playing roms, or as an addition to their VB collection. Maybe put up a poll?

Well, it might give some idea of the number of possible entrants. :)
