THis is an high risk to take. You cannot publicly release source code and if you get help from someone else without us knowing then the person who helps is penalized since he won't get the prize if you win. And just giving a copy of the game to a friend is a big risk if the friend isn't trustworthy, since he could either release it and claim the work as his own, or he could release it publicly, disqualifying that entry in the process. So it's best to be careful.
No source code will be shared and I assume my friends are trustworthy enough, could even include my little brother or just use some random laptop and my left and right hand on different keyboards.

Ah ok that's good. As I said, though, be careful. Also, if it's an online entry or something, make sure that it doesn't have dependencies or anything that could prevent judges from playing it. :P

Java 8 shouldn't be a problem right? It's usually pre-installed anyway.

It's fine, but I hope I can run it. With recent java builds, I always get security errors on any web-based java applications .

I've starting making something akin to super warlus land. I spent like 15 minuts, set up a tile map ;)

Oh yeah, that. Was the original version ever made into a full game? Please remind me.

I wish you good luck on your project! Can't wait to play/look at screenshots of/wish I could program something like/cry about me losing to your final game!

SWL went on indefinite hiatus due to life and lack of motivation to work on larger projects other than RPGs.

I know this isnt exactly the place to ask, but since it is related to the contest i will ask it here. Can someone make me 16*16 b/w mario based spites?
It seems my project is a monochrome Super Walrii land port <_<

well, i hope this isnt to much, but: cracked stone, brick, dirt, and top layer of dirt. :)
Maybe if posible you coul make a darker dirt (kinda hard in black and white) to serve as a background when walking through a dirt cave.

DJ Omnimaga

If you decide to make a color game, keep in mind there exists an actual walrus sprite of Mario and we even have a koopa. :P

Need anything else, just ask ;)

By the way, I want to remind all participants that in order for your entry to be eligible, you must create a separate topic about it on CW in the contests section. I also highly encourage people to post progress updates regularly so that they can gain some popularity.
