After the great success of the last CPCRetroDev last year it is time for a new game competition in 2017 again, isn’t it? This year, you can win around 1100 EUR in all different categories. As usual the competition is organised by the University of Alicante (UA) / Spain and aims to award the best and creative game developers, who create a game for an unmodified Amstrad CPC 464. The deadline for this years competition is the 31st October 2017, 23:59h (CEST), so don’t waste any time and start the development of your awesome game (you will find a countdown on the top right of this page :)).
If you are not familiar with development for the Amstrad CPC, you can have a look at the CPCtelera game development kit, the great programming tutorials on CPCMania, the CPCrslib programming library or cpcitor’s development toolchain. As always you can find help in the CPCWiki forums.

  • Official Awards (1.100 €)
    • Special Mentions
      • 100 € – Gominolas to the best music
