Yeah, I was mainly wondering about the optimization thing, though. Of course, other ideas are welcome, though, but I thought the optimizing thing could be a nice idea for refurbishing old calculator games by staff and to help new programmers learn new tricks and stuff.  We did it on Omnimaga back in the days.

The optimization idea seems interesting...

I had an idea. What about making sure all of the participants learn a new language and create the same game?

If we ever do that then it would need to be a small game. Also it would be hard to detect if someone is lying about not knowing a specific language or not.

Unicorn

You could tell id someone is lying by the speed of their finishing it and state of their code.

We could make a contest that makes visually attractive eye candy that is intractable with the user. Those would be cool to judge ;)

I've always wanted to do a contest or jam where participants make a programming game like Core Wars or TIS-100.

You had a cool idea and are searching for a way to show it off? :P
Though it is a cool idea

Unfortunately, I don't. XD I just want an excuse to make one and stay committed to it. ;)

So what about taking a small TI-BASIC game that is horribly optimized, has memory leaks and unnecessary flickering, posting the source on the forums, then discussing all together what optimizations could be made to it? Then once we can no longer find anything else to optimize, the game is re-released with a new credits section and in its optimized form. I think this could be a nice way to prop up forum activity and get the community to work together. I am really curious as this could be a neat solution while we gather ideas for a later, larger contest.  There would be no deadline: If it gets done in a week then be it, we jump to another game afterwards (perhaps different languages each time?)
