For sure. Nothing makes my heart cry more than a sponsor putting their stupid ass intro video on my work. I wish all sponsors were more cool about this like ng, kong and ag are.

I'm really looking forward to this. I won't be able to participate this year, as I'm being drafted, but I'll still be able to enjoy the submissions :D

We could do a vote if everyone else wants to just do Power of Three again... I think four brings some interesting dynamics to the groups, in terms of multiple artists, or writers, or level designers, sound effects... Maybe it's reaching too far though, I'll admit three has always been a comfy number for game development.

From what I've seen, four always has that one guy who doesn't do much. It's just... even numbers ._.

Ever heard of Brook's Law? 9 women can't deliver a baby in 1 month. Though it's not as crazy as 3 vs 4 people, it's that the 4th person won't add much. BG Artist? Most artists can handle BG's on their own. However, the exception is musician's and sound designers, though there are a lot of musicians that can do both - not all. That being said, who really needs a bunch of sound design for a three month game anyways?

Anyhow, I still think The Power of Three sounds a little more exciting, and it made more sense. Good things tend to come in threes.


Good.

I'll post just to say I'm down if there are people interested in working with me.

Short blurb:
23, B.F.A. Game Design; from George Mason University.

I've almost exclusively worked in Unity in the past and would prefer to use it for this project.
I'm a programmer and 3D artist (3DS Max, Blender, Maya; been working on a Voxel tool of my own; which might be used in this project, if people are interested).

Looking for (ideally for a group of four):
A writer/designer (needs no skills, except design; dedicated level designer in late project time (if a non-procedurally generated game goes a long way)).
Another 3D Artist OR a 2D artist; depending on the direction of the game.
A Composer.

Would talk to all comers; though I've had problems with asset pipe-lining if multiple programmers before (Unity isn't the best at source control).

As for genre. I have a notebook full of ideas; open to 3D and 2.5D platformers, FPS's (including DOOMlikes), Roguelikes, RPG's, will discuss more if people like.

Hit me up anywhere.

They can give feedback/ideas to the other members and help keep overview and communication, since they're not stuck to one perspective.

You try finding me one person outside of Daisuke Amaya who knows music, programming, AND art.

Next, we're going to have a "power of five" theme, then in the future, there's going to be a "power of 100" theme. This "power of 100" will push people to make a Wonderful 101 style game, and that will ruin everything. Don't do dis, NG staff, don't do dis!

The Power of Three competition was a stroke of genius and gave us several fantastic games. All in all, though, there is one thing I'm hoping to see in this competition: A sequel to Primary.

Quick question @TomFulp : is it ok for a person to be on more than 1 team or is that against the rules?

Not sure if that analogy applies to this example =P

Cause if you have 2 artist they will make double the art in the same time, unless you have an artist that learned dual wielding.

It's just a different number of people but the result in the end still the same... games =D

Unless both artists come into conflict with eachother, if their art doesn't match up and they keep having to redo things. Same with programmers, sharing code is a chore.

I doubt I have the time to take part as either an artist, musician or coder, but I figured I'll leave these here. They're links 'cause they're large images. I can't get anything drawn right but I figured over the word "Four", four people would be coming up from them in some cool pose or something, I dunno.

Logo 1, having a bit of an edgy, angular font: https://www.dropbox.com/s/u53kxliadfkx3l8/power_of_four_contest_logo1.png

Logo 2, using Myriad. Had more font weights to play with. Heh heh, weights. https://www.dropbox.com/s/mv65lenxqalkfpa/power_of_four_contest_logo2.png

Whatever this update did, unfortunately, it has stopped things from playing on my computer. Mine loads the page, but never gets the game or movie up. This is all I get: http://www.newgrounds.com/dump/item/11de0bdb728ed4beba9f93fdb40901df and it stays like that. The movie or game part never comes up. I'm thinking that update somehow shut things down for me. Others have the same issue:

This is just a quick thing I made. The objects inside are mostly from the open clipart library, and probably would be replaced with original art later on.

@Zachary: HA, that's totally what I saw too...

TOM! I have one request for the project system. A mass PM button for all beta testers would be great. I've resorted to using the author comments to communicate with people, but no one knows when that's updated to check it. I could see this being useful for any PoF submissions.
