Hi there

Well, I've just signed up on the basis I'd give it a go just like I gave the Ludum Dare 48 hour competitions a go. With any luck I might actually get something that I'm half way happy with given 7 days (well 3 days and 4 evenings, bless the August Bank Holiday). I did actually manage something good on the last Ludum Dare competition but was stymed at the last moment by a strange bug that stopping it running under Windows (I work under Linux).

A small question. Unlike Ludum Dare this competition allows existing artwork, music and SFX, I know that I can use free stuff I've downloaded off the net but can I use the contents of the SFX / Loops / Clipart CDs I have as long as I can redistribute the data with the game ? The CDs were bought and the rule isn't very clear. In the interests of fair play is it enough that everybody could have access to the same assets ?

The only restriction on using artwork that's not your own is that you not break any licensing on the artwork.
