I'm sure you can, but only the latest one will be read I believe. Correct me if I'm wrong

I think in the past, submitting multiple entries was allowed, yet frowned upon. Under the new regime, however... Who knows!

I think that accurately reflects our view as well. We don't BLOCK multiple entries, but we pretty much presume you might as well spend your time on making one good one.

Ta!

Hello everyone, I just signed up

This is essentially a big part of what I'm doing for my Game Design Masters.
If I jotted up a 500 word synopsis of what I'm doing that would be appropriate for this, would that be acceptable?

This one is definitely mine. I LOVE the Survival Horror genre, lately, there hasn't been enough ideas for REAL Survival Horror. What I mean is this, they've been lacking the Survival aspect of Survival Horror. Limited ammunition, trying to just survive without being able to get their hands on weapons very often, etc... And there hasn't been much of a scare in games nowadays. Perhaps in Siren games, however, I feel Survival Horror is being abandoned somewhat slowly and being replaced with the idea of action and such.

By the way, does there HAVE to be combat in the game? I know that may sound weird, however, some horror games lack actual combat.

For the next challenge, the task is as simple as coming up with a horror game that doesn't rely on the tropes established by the Resident Evil series -- principally combat, but we'll let your imaginations run wild.
I'm assuming that means a game that doesn't rely on combat as the primary mechanic is preferable, but we can do whatever. So yeah, as far as I can tell, we don't need combat.

'Combat' can be very loosely defined. Look at the Fatal Frame series in which the combat is done with a camera! Crazy, but innovative and freaky. I would be very intrigued by a horror game with no actual combat.


By the way, cojpatterson, I see you have your location listed as Tempe, AZ. I lived there for three years and absolutely loved it! Just wanted to let you know that I somewhat envy you!

Does the concept has to be created entirely by one (1) person or is it allowed to cooperate with artists for example?
