COVID Adjustments

Due to the massive uncertainty around what next May will look like, we are making some adjustments to how OGPC runs for the 2020-2021 season. Here are the highlights:

Virtual Judging

All judging will place online on May 15th. We are planning to do synchronous judging sessions where teams interact with judges online to show off their projects and answer questions.

Games Must be Web Playable

To accommodate online judging, all games must be playable on the web. Teams will have to provide a link to a webpage where judges (and other teams) can play the game in a web browser. See the Season 14 Competition Manual for details.

Construct 3 Licenses Available For Free To Teams

Made possible by generous support from Scirra, OGPC will provide teams with licenses to Construct 3 for the duration of OGPC Season 14. For details, please check our Construct Offer page.

Construct 3 runes entirely in a web browser and works on any platform (PC, Mac, iOS, Android, ChromeOS). It produces web playable games and supports multiple levels of programming (Visual block-based programming and text-based JavaScript). For teams that do not have access to their regular development tools, or whose normal tools do not support developing web-based games, Construct hopefully provides a clear path for how to get started working online.

Teams do NOT have to use Construct. If your team members have access to tools they are already familiar with and those tools are capable of making a web playable game, you are welcome to use those.
