Fandal website says 2014.

In fact the game was made on 2014 but was released Jan 1, 2015 2:09 PM with NYD 2015.

I think you're right, Kaz Kompo 2014 is for games released on 2014.

I'm pretty sure all games from all New Year Disks are written earlier than on January 1st ;)

 

Well, we tried to keep releasing date rule. That's why in the game set you can find "really old" games, like Chutes, Mission Moscow or Megaoids.

 

However, there are small exceptions to that general rule: we decided not to include "Delta Space Arena" and "Secretum Labyrinth Kings Gold" since in 2014 just demo versions were published and the final versions were published this year. Those games will take part in the next edition of Kaz Kompo. We didn't want to make people vote twice - even if majority of them would never see the final commercial version with their own eyes.

Hi, would it be possible that there are two competitions next year? One for the normal games and the other for the 10 liners?

 

I just think that in this competition, the 10 liners, however great they are can not compete with the main games. This is unfortunate.

 

Though it does somehow become a competition then which is the same as the 10 liners contest....

@Snicklin: Many of those 10-liners are much better than some of the games from the "main" set... I was thinking about organising some kind of qualifiers: specific types of games (like 10-liners, new levels sets, games written live during parties and jams) would have to fight for the right to taking part in the second, final phase with other games (and the best of them would qualify) - but not everyone in AtariOnline likes that idea :)

Generally, we wouldn't like to complicate the rules too much or to overmultiply categories, it could discourage people from voting - now we have simplicity: we choose THE BEST new game that we saw during a year. On the other hand, in my opinion, if the game set (for one voting step) is too big, it also discourages people just because of the scale...

Adam

P.S. I've translated majority of foreign titles on the list. Here's another one: "Rubačka vo kopec" - apparently means in Czech something like "Fight over hill", "rubačka" is a slang word.

I understand your point Adam but people will mostly think 10 liner = budget game, regardless of how good a game it is to play I imagine most folk would mentally automatically place it as a lower game which is a tad unfair but what is likely to happen.

 

As Snicks says, a separate compo for them would be kinder and fairer..

 

Also, the Robbo entries, as fun as they are, are they not hacks rather than especially written games..Don't get me wrong, I do like them a lot but its a game engine being reused.

Adam, you made a tremendous work, thank you very very much!

Regarding rules of the contest, I think they are perfect and I would change nothing.

Thanks to this contest and its fair voting system, we can chose the best games of the year.
It's very useful; when someone asks me best homebrews for A8, I just give Kaz Kompo winners and runners-up list (with some personal addictions).
I once asked for the best homebrews for ZX Spectrum; no one was able to give me a comprehensive list.

On the other hand, thanks to the work of people like Adam, we can try ALL games, even the ones we missed.

Thank you again!
