I think we need a challenge.

Any ideas?

Physics game challenge!
 That would generally physics are a significant part of the game mechanics but we could just say that the game has to use your SC Physics engine.

Cool, i'd like to see some new physics games out there. like one of those games where you have to stack the shapes to win a level or something. I have my hands full with Adventure 4 though so I might not make one. (and I don't know how to use SC lol)

That's not a bad idea but it excludes Gm users...
If GM had paint commands I suppose it could be made to work with the plugin.

Well think about this - it was hard enough to make the contest games in a month, when we had time to prepare beforehand, so why not make it something simpler? Perhaps more like a programming challenge, for a specific part of a game. For example trying to make a good mouse-following code. (You might remember that drove me insane for a while.)

How about an action/arcade game challenge? GM and Sc users would be able to participate.
The game can use physics and any other engines but can only be written in Gm, Sc, Tnt, or processing.

From now to Febuary you can plan and make the engine. March will be when you put it together with graphics and such to be an actual game. April 1st will be the deadline.

Excluding platforms might discourage participants. The purpose of the Monthly Challenge (I still think it should be called "Monthly Exercise") is to promote active development, keep us in the habit of releasing finished products on time and to increase our problem solving skills.

I'd love to do a simple arcader! :D

Sounds like a great idea.
Alright, make it with what you want. No platforms or game makers excluded.

A platformer would be neat. Sounds like a challenge for someone. ;)
I'm gonna figure out what I will make. I feel like Space Invaders with a hint of physics but that could change.

How would you put physics in space invaders? And more importantly, how would they help the gameplay at all?  :D it makes me wonder.

Nice, I like the smoothness.

But... can you make the same with SC Physics?
