Online Question

Ok, regardless of programming aspects  Cool but can you make an online game, and only online? like no single player? And Iso view is allowed right? Sorry if these are dumb questions, this is my first comp, actually first post on these forums =P

Re: Online Question

I'm really not sure, the online aspect should be browser independant and require no special software other than that game. I'm not sure about iso, I know SHMUPs like Viewpoint have used it but it's up to the OTHER Matt really...

Re: Online Question

do you mean online as multiplayer only or in browser games like flash? if it's the second I'm pretty sure that all games have to be packaged as an .exe file.

No, I don't believe they need to be packaged as such.  Matt has said Flash games are fine, though I think the hosting requirements of that need to be looked at, given that one has to ensure the game does not change post the contest closing date.

Re: Online Question

It woudl have to be single player too, because if it was only online we may have problems getting it reviewed.
