    I think its perfectly fine, if the goal is not boring like "coolect 1000 bags of potato" but you have to use the collected material to Win the game.

    Not only its okay, but its encouraged to create such gameplay.

    ~Independent opinion, im not the host.

    It seems that the obvious "farming" system would be the most original of all of these... No one's suggested doing the obvious. Good luck, I hope I can judge some of your guy's work! And if you need help, I've already got one of these in its final stages, not for contest, though. Contact me for help!

    Does that count as farming? It doesn't seem to have "crops" or "rakes" or "farms"

    He's clearly thinking outside of the box just as I am. Of course it is counted as farming. It would be boring to have 10 type of games with crops, rakes and farms.

    Now this is an epic idea, I sure hope some puzzle maps come out of this! :3. Besides, Aeroblyctos is considering joining, I'm excited now. =D
    @Juno, I like the fact that the orbs are not an item stack, but more of an ability, my guess is the ability improves as u gather more orbs?.. anyway I'm anticipating good outcome from this one =3 good luck contestants.

    Offtopic: After reading the thread.. i want to ask.. Is the member Almia the THW police around here? I had no idea :D

    Ok, I'll start now! Here's my ideas, heroes will collect 4 artifact from artifact keepers. These artifacts are once said to make a normal human a god.

    As I have said, these artifacts are guarded by Artifact Keepers known as Bosses. I am planning to make these bosses differently like one boss you will battle it, one will make you solve a puzzle, one will give you a quest that involves you more on collecting items, and the other one.... I am not sure yet but maybe I'll make it a survival.... the main goal of this game is to collect 4 artifacts. Other than that, there are more collecting involved like to get one of the artifact and also some Optional Quests.

    So, guys is this a good idea?

    Sorry for the double post but here is my WiP #1 Screenshots.

    To give you all more informations about the game. You are Arnold, a villager who lives at a simple vilage. You are one of the many people who wants to get their hands in the Artifacts. Your own purpose on getting the Artifacts is to be as powerful as Gods but that purpose will change.... My game is like an Adventure that the main goal is to collect the 4 Artifacts. In your adventure, you will encounter Optional Quests involving more collecting and Artifact Keepers that guards the Artifacts. To acquire them, they will give you different task involving many things and not just Collecting but also solving puzzle, fighting them, answering questions and more.... That's all for the info but don't worry because the game still involves many Collecting so maybe it can be called Farming with a story in it!

    Read carefully the contest description. Your main goal is to gather stuff not fight a boss. Do them both but focus on the gathering, not on triggering a spectacular dragon... or whatever boss you make.

    You are a young forest, trying your hardest to grow tall enough to be selected for Cenarious' elite Force of Nature. Gather biomass and water from your surroundings to grow large and strong, and maybe one day you'll be able to call yourself an Ancient.

    You are literally a bunch of trees, and you can train wisps using water resource, to plant saplings in the soil around the forest. Roots can drain biomass from grass and small plants nearby. Water is gathered from rivers and rainfall. Uproot trees into treants to fight off invaders, and use spells like Tranquility to put out forest fires.

    I haven't coded a single line yet, though.

    You took the words out of my mouth...

    On the flip side, it shows that Im not the only one thinking along that line of ideas.
