Liberated Pixel Cup Code Winners Announced

Unknown Lamer posted about a year and a half ago | from the have-some-fun dept.

GNU is Not Unix 25

After a laborious judging process, the Liberated Pixel Cup has finally announced the winners of the code contest. Out of the 48 entries, Lurking Patrol Comrades (now Source of Tales), a "MMORPG with a vast world, plenty of characters to speak to, both a melee and a magic based battle system, and a polished user interface," won the grand prize. The best HTML5 game was Big Island, written in Dart and playable directly from Github. The art prizes were given last August in case you missed it. Congratulations to everyone who participated!

Well you could try clicking on the links in TFS, even without reading it.

The website for Source of Tales lacks screenshots--a major omission for a game with graphics. I would've modded grandparent up if I had the points.

Sorry. We were caught by surprise. We only managed to bring up a "Thanks" message yesterday. We got a single screenshot online for now as a start. We will try to put more info / screenshots on the website now/the next days.

"Screenshots motherfuckers, do you have them?"

There are screenshots at the very first link, fragboy, but you don't want to look at them. Hint: do you remember when DOS was the gaming platform of choice?

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#42943483)

The Amiga was the game platform of choice. DOS is on what the rest settled. If that is choice, get thee to a nunnery, grrl.

I'm not talking about the announcement, I'm talking about the individual sites, dweeb. For example: http://opengameart.org/content/lurking-patrol-comrades, http://opengameart.org/content/lurking-patrol-comrades, or http://opengameart.org/content/big-island.

DOS was a shit gaming platform.

Directly playable? How? (2, Informative)

wonkey_monkey (2592601) | about a year and a half ago | (#42943259)

The best HTML5 game was Big Island, written in Dart and playable directly from Github

Oh? How? The Big Island page has a non-clickable link (!) to the repository page, which you then have to scroll down to the bottom of . There, there are three options, and I presume the "Easy way" is meant to be the directly playable one, since there's nothing else to download according to the instructions. Click on it, however, and all I get is a black page. Does it require Chrome?

This is how (4, Informative)

tanveer1979 (530624) | about a year and a half ago | (#42943273)

In chrome Use this link

Darinbob (1142669) | about a year and a half ago | (#42949027)

Chrome only? I just get a blank screen in firefox.

Yes- firefox does not work (1)

tanveer1979 (530624) | about a year and a half ago | (#42953293)

This works in Chrome only. I even tried Aurora - No work. Did not try on windows though, only on linux

Re:Directly playable? How? (2)

wbr1 (2538558) | about a year and a half ago | (#42943349)

http://seveibar.github.com/liberated-pixel-cup/ [github.com] is the link.

The playable link goes to opengameart, where you have to go to github, then find the right link on the bottom.
Come on mods, actually EDIT the submissions for correctness. That at least is not censorship and does not go against any libertarian leanings.

Already found a bug in Big Island (1)

wbr1 (2538558) | about a year and a half ago | (#42943377)

In the intro, there are NPCs wandering. At one point the into flew over a bridge. NPCs on the ground were blocked by the water. Two NPC's on the bridge walked right off and walked on the water.
It may not be a bug though. The game may have two Jesuses!

You can't write a sentence without a mistake. Now translate that to a game.

Re:Already found a bug in Big Island (0)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#42946495)

I just tried to play it, but even though I've got a pretty decent computer and the game looks like a SNES game, it runs at 2 FPS or thereabouts. Not playable.

Re:Already found a bug in Big Island (1)

sayno2quat (1651749) | about a year ago | (#42971859)

Don't be silly. That was obviously Jesus and Peter. Had you continued to watch, a storm would have blown in, and then one would start swimming.

Tried the MMORPG (3, Informative)

loufoque (1400831) | about a year and a half ago | (#42943439)

I downloaded the dependencies and compiled it.
I registered an account and created a character.
Comes the time to play it says "No gameservers are available.".

"No gameservers are available."

They've been slashdotted. Probably.

Ablu (2845581) | about a year and a half ago | (#42945017)

Our server is a rather weak vserver designed for testing only. We also know some bugs that are already fixed. But since we run the server on the old judging status those are not fixed yet. So our server goes down rather easily at the moment. We prepare for an update now. The judging end caught us by surprise a bit so we are unprepared. We are working on resolving this issues now!

I'll admit... (0)

I am disappointed my project didn't win...

...but then again there was no prize for technological superiority.

Re:I'll admit... (0)

Anonymous Coward | about a year and a half ago | (#42946327)

One of the rules required that the games be easy to build. Was it?

Re:I'll admit... (1)

xhrit (915936) | about a year and a half ago | (#42946599)

The game does not even have to be built - only the engine.

The engine is not any harder to build then say, PHP and Apache, which are requirements to play the HTML5 entries.
