We are making some changes to Games Under Construction, starting with OUR definition of "under construction".
As it stands at the moment, you could open a copy of VX (for example) stick Ralph on a basic map and take a screenshot and post it with a sentence saying" boy travels to other lands to kill evil man". and post it in GUC.
What does that tell us ? - nothing.
What happens next? - straight away we have to ask for more information, because there is nothing of any substance to comment on. If you want help and C&C with a project you need to show it off, make it interesting and full of information, The consequences for topics that are substandard is the inevitable "bump" "bump" " what is no one interested" - well of course not,
What we are going to do is set a minimum criteria that has to be met and a template will be provided to help.
In brief- whatever stage a game is at you will always have a story, even if it is in rough stages. This is to be a compulsory requirement, along with character descriptions, and which game maker you are using,
We would like you to add screenshots or concept artwork, something that shows you have made some progress.
Basically showpiece your game, get people interested and everyone should benefit.
The forum will go onto Mod Preview and the mods will decide if a project can be accepted or not. (note if any are accepted without screenshots for example please do not report the thread- it just means that the mods have decided enough of the criteria has been met and that the project is of a standard to be approved).
