Theme: Platform Games

The theme for this year’s Maine Game Competition is platform games!

 

What major game genre has stood the test of time?  Platform games.

With classics like Mario, Donkey Kong, MegaMan, and Sonic to more contemporary games like Super Meat Boy, Splosion Man, LittleBigPlanet, and Dustforce the platform game genre is well established and wildly successful.

Your team’s challenge is to make a video game that uses platform based mechanics.  Your team decides on the content of the game (characters, motivation, location, etc.) but must use “traditional” platform mechanics to be considered in this year’s competition.
