-Here at GitHub, we're no strangers to hosting or sponsoring hackathons. With the growing number of games and game development resources on GitHub, we thought it was about time to throw our very own game jam!
+## GitHub Game-off 2012 Submission
-## The Challenge
+**AreaOfEffect** games presents **Forky's Revenge**, our submission for the GitHub Game-off.
-You have the entire month of November to create a **web-based** game *loosely* built around one or more of the following themes:
+The cutlery of FoodLand are tired of their enslavement. You play a brave fork, chosen to lead the revolution against the evil food minions.
+Rise up and destroy all the food so they can be free! The food will not go quietly….
-* forking (or forks)
-* branching (or branches)
-* cloning (or clones)
-* pushing
-* pulling
-
-What do we mean by **loosely** based on these concepts? We literally mean, *loosely* based. Some examples might be a FPS where you throw forks at water balloons, an educational game about DNA cloning, or perhaps a platformer where you push and pull objects.
-
-Your game. Your rules. You can participate as an individual or as a team. You're encouraged to use open source libraries, frameworks, graphics, and sounds.
-
-## Prizes
-
-We have 5 shiny new iPads with Retina displays (64GB wifi models) to give to our winners (or Apple Store Credit equivalent). Runners up will receive GitHub swag of their choice ($100 credit for the [GitHub Shop](http://shop.github.com/)). If you have a team submission, we'll give you Apple Store credit equal to the value of the iPad. You can split it with your teammates as appropriate.
-
-All of the winners and runners up will be showcased on our blog.
