For the fourth year running, Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festival organises the Indie Game Contest for independent video games developers.
The Indie Game Contest highlights independent quality video games as artistic works, focusing on creativity and originality.
The games will be presented during the festival from the 16th to the 25th september 2016. It gives the opportunity for all game developers to compete with other game creators and to collect the public’s impression on the gameplay in order to win the Octopix Prize awarded by professional judges.
Game Jolt are hosting a 72 hour game jam, where you must make a game with a scoreboard using the Game Jolt API. The theme will be announced when the jam starts. Apparently the theme will be “well-received by SHMUP lovers.”
Super Thrustforce: Orbital Meat Police (STOMP) is based on the classic 8-bit game Thrust, and also the great Amiga game Gravity Force (hence the Thrustforce in the title). Aliens have abducted all Earth’s cows, and you must infiltrate the alien mothership to get them back. This mainly involves blowing everything up, but you’ll need to master control of your ship, which is affected by gravity.
