  1. This is really important  as it allows the not so artistic to make good looking games. Sometimes rules really make a game and consistent art often helps.

    Donated $50.

    I think you should throw in a link to the actual contest page too, http://lpc.opengameart.org/

    I’m looking forward to the contest! :D

    I think “free-as-in-freedom” is exactly the sort of phrase people try to avoid when they use “free-as-in-beer” and “free-as-in-speech”. The fact that we’re discussing games, opening up the possibility of “free-as-in-motion” doesn’t really help either.

      Did you know that some people have made a beer recipe, made the recipe open source (Creative Commons, I think), then started selling the stuff at open-source conventions under the moniker “FREE BEER”?

      (Also, for minimization of confusion, I prefer ‘free of charge’ and ‘free of restriction’.)

    This bears a lot of similarities to the Assemblee competition that TIGSource ran yonks ago. 

    Part One was an art/music competition. Part Two was a game design competiton, utilising assets from Part One.

    There’s a veritable trove of assets still kicking about on the forums for Part One. I’m not sure if it’s all CC licenced, but some of the most popular certainly are.
