Oh, no, submission is yet not working...
Actually, it just said the .ROM file was not allowed...

Maybe I haven't written it very clearly, but you have to submit your game inside a zip archive (to reduce bandwidth)

sure, I have just posted on the website the very first entry:

http://www.retrocrap.org/2009/06/19/columbia-space-run/

It's an arcade game / space sim made by Daniel Vik. On the website you'll find both the game and the instruction booklet, and plus I have also added a short video of myself playing the game (I'm not really good at playing videogames as you'll see ;)

Muffie, if you don't want to compress your game you can just send the game to me at this e-mail address: francesco (AT) allascala (DOT) com and I'll post it on the website within tomorrow night. :)

Dvik's game is really an example of a "good" crap game. It's interesting to see that it's obviously a game that took some time to be made, with some good level of detail and still a crap.
Quite different from a game like this:

10 cls
20 x=rnd(1)*1024
30 print "Guess the number?"
50 input a
60 if a = x then print "congratulations, you won": end
70 beep:print "haaaaaaaddaaa Sucker!"
80 goto 20

Craps are not all equal...

Cesco, that's perfect!!! I want it!! You're from Venice?What do you think is the best "logistic" solution? We ship the prizes to you, or, when the winner is announced, every donator send the prize from his home country? This last option saves money with shipping.Tsk, in the true spirit of complete and utter crap, the prizes should of course never ever be shipped at all! Running Naked in a Field of Flowers
