Code Test

In which I post some code as a test of the new site.

[cce lang="java" ]
void runThusAndExit(){

for(int i = 0; i < 2010; i++){

print(“In case you missed it, this is a test.”);

}

exitYeFoulBeast();

}
[/cce]

Quite.

Can I make a game in 48 hours?

This could be a mistake.
Almost on a dare I put together a bunch of friends and we are all in the 48hr Game Making Challenge. GameOn/QUT/iCi/Acid and the amazing Truna have put together an impressive event. There will be 17 student teams and 3 pro teams competing over this weekend. I’m in the Monkey Something pro team and all 6 of us have never made a game in under 9 months, Actually I average 2 years to make a game. So 48 hours is going to be a stretch.
There will also be 3 very brave teams from the (Griffith Film School) Games Design, where I lecture. Milk n’ Pickles, Sick Fish and Immigration Office will all be part of the first public appearance of the Griffith Games students.
To make things more interesting nearly everyone on the 3 separate pro teams have worked together. So this could be the weekend for long held grudges to surface.
You can read about it here http://www.48hrgamecomp.com/ Over the weekend it will be blogged and streamed live at that address. Or you can rock up to QUT Kelvin Grove and check it out. Any time of the weekend really. We’ll all be there.
Those who are about to game salute you.
