Are Java games allowed in this contest?

Yes, but note that it can't be an in-browser applet. It'll have to be a compiled, executable application that we can launch from our Desktop once we download it.

Crud.
I will look around to see if I can compile it for desktop use too.

Though what if I made the Java applet launch-able from the desktop in this fashion:
(1) You download the game.
(2) Inside the folder you see the game alias and a data folder.
(3) You click on the alias with the game title on it.
(4) A window pops up and the game plays full window size. Though that game window is actually a safari window....

I don't see how that wouldn't be allowed... It's like running a Cocoa app on a mac but needing the cocoa framework installed in order to run.

Well that seems fine you won't need an internet connection because it would be running off your computer not a website.

I'll allow it if it runs in Safari. The thing is, it's fairly simple to make a standalone in Java, so I don't see why you don't just do it that way.

Wouldn't the program you are using to program it in have some sort of compile feature?

Well, I researched on it and found nothing of use. I'm using NetBeans and I've found nothing that would allow me to compile to any other than .class for browsers. :P

You've been using java for a week and you can already make an RPG in it?

Check out my project page. :D Took me a bit to figure out how to take control of the keyboard, but I came through.

I'll learn a bit more after this than start on a slick tile engine.
