Update: The theme that was chosen is Castlevania! All that sidescrolling platformer scariness.
As always, if you don't like the theme, don't hesitate to try something a little different by reusing some of the tropes from the game or by just doing something completely unrelated!
Since we all seem to pretty well agree that the third programming competition will run from October 31st to November 30th, I think it's about time to decide on the theme.
The last couple of times, we've chosen arcade type games for the theme, and, if there are more good ones out there that we can all agree on, I'd like to continue with that trend. Another thing I think we should keep doing is using tropes - I think that it's a really nice balance for the games made being similar while still allowing for creative ideas.
What do you guys think?
