it’s up to you if you want to wait for user input to pass the attract screen, but I’d probably automatically quit shortly after you display the winner screen. The only portion that needs a 30 sec timer is the gameplay.
1 Title screen is optional and doesn’t subtract from your 30 seconds if you make one
2 Music is good!
3 Games can end in draws or in no winners at all. We will tally players points as the show goes.
4 You can assume 1920x1080 resolution, we’ll be plugged into a stage projector.
Howdy gang! If you took part in either Duplicade or Barfcade, then you know the rules- 30 second 2 player games on a theme that we'll let two contestants play live at Fantastic Arcade. We'll stream the event on Sunday November 19th as it happens on the Venus Patrol twitch channel! If you've got questions ask them here, and tag your progress with #phonyisland on twitter. Good Luck and stay tuned as we announce the secret ingredient at the start of the jam!
The players will see it on a widescreen monitor, and the audience will see it on a projector. I believe the projector is 1280x720 so it will probably mirror that on the monitor, even though the monitor is capable of a higher resolution.
