PHO Christmas Hacking Contest
The First Annual PHO Christmas Hacking Contest!

Contest submission has been given a months extension to January 31st 2014 to give a chance to those who had to drop out due to time constraints.

PHO celebrates its first christmas since its return with a contest for all to join. You will have until the new year to submit it!

The Theme

Your hack must be a short hack, no more than 45 Minutes of Gameplay. You may do anything you'd like in your hack so long as it is Christmas or winter related. Eye candy is always a plus (if you need help finding tiles for GBA I recommend Calis Project or Zein)

Rules and Regulations

  • You may NOT submit a pre-existing hack.
  • You may NOT submit someone else's hack.
  • Your submission must be a hack, Game Development will have contests once more members have interest in it.
  • No more than 45 Minutes of Gameplay
  • Must be christmas or winter themed
  • You may only win one award, so even if it qualifies for best graphics and best gameplay, you will only get one of these (depending on the other submissions)

The Awards

Each of the following categories will have a trophy for you to display in your hacks thread (or whatever you want to do with it, give us some free advertisement on PC! ;p)

Categories include:
  • Best Graphics
  • Best Story
  • Best Gameplay
  • Best Christmas Spirit
