What if? =D

I'm assuming 060110 refers to June 01, 2010 (submission start date, maybe?)

Awesome.

BlueTaslem, CGDC stands for Casual Gameplay Design Competition. This seems to be JiG's way of announcing them now.

I know what it means. But a banner barely says anything other than "Yes, it is going to happen, eventually, at some time or another" which everyone already knew.

I bet that the theme's not Interactive Fiction.

Well, what I see is a fighter. He's celebrating how he just won a competition. Maybe the theme is competition?

Here's my guesses, just to get this started:

Summer vaction or the beach, what made me think?: fat guy in trunks possibly ready for a cannoball, letters simulate water caustics and the background looks like sand, the numbers, obviously 6/1/2010.

Er, that guy is running. The "weird shape" is his shadow. Maybe the theme is Run?

Alternatively, Dreams.

Also alternatively, Arctic laser monkeys with a tendency to overreact while ice-skating.

Banner Analyzation

This banner tells that CGDC #8 is coming.

The 0 6 0 1 1 0, probably means June 1, 2010. (because if you split it, you will get this: 06/01/10).

June 1, 2010 is probably the time when Jay is going to tell the details.

The brown background looks a lot like sand.

Between the 8 and CGDC there is a man, a fat man with two small hairs on top.

The man is either running or celebrating.

The weird shape under the man is probably his shadow.

There is a small sparkle at the second C, near the top part.

It looks like the CGDC is underground, buried under the sand.

With these clues, we can probably guess the theme for CGDC #8.

I'd say survival or competition, perhaps. The way the letters look is dirty and earthy, so that's why I'd say survival. However, the man is apparently running, so it could also be competition.

Maybe . . . gold rush? The letters could be rocks with sparkly bits, and the guy looks like he's running toward the sunset (which in the US, would be consistent with running toward California where the gold rush was). Totally random guessing though . . .

Maybe we're having a pre-competition competition :)

Interesting.....
I am looking forward to the entries....

I made a guess to the theme of the CGDC#8

Is it "3sC4p3" ? I made a guess before and it is not posted... I am not sure if I found the theme :)

Hey, does this remind anyone else of the loading screen in cortex command? The gold stuff in the lettering looks like the gold in cortex command. Just saying ;)
It might be a sort of spelunky theme. The exploring of caves under the ground. Think about it.

Here's a little Walkthrough

Look at the banner

It has the words CGDC 8 with a fat guy jumping in between and the numbers 060110 underneath

Understand it.

CGDC 8

This is obviously a way to tell everyone about the 8th competition

The fat guy

This is to suggest the theme. Possibly Survival.

060110

This is the date of the anouncement

06/01/10

@robonoob:

That was my first thought, too. But wasn't that just the theme of CGDC7?

Also, your other comment posted. No conspiracy, sorry.

The theme is quite CLEARLY

Cheese

Obviously.
If not, it might be something so abstract as

Competition, racing, summer

But those ideas are far too random. I suspect it is my first choice.

Fat guy looks like he has some major congenital defects, such as having a hand for a foot and a sphere for a hand.

My useless guess: LOST theme.

Actually I don't think the fat dude is really a fat dude, I think it's a fat baby. And what do babies play in? Sandboxes. Given that the rest of the banner looks all sandy, I agree with TheRealTJ and olgofonz. I think the theme is sandbox.

i reckon, the theme is survival. the letters have what apears to be light glimmering off water. the ocean. an island...?

bacground seems sandy...

fat guy. appears to be in tattered clothes. mabye a gorrila, yes.)
celebrating. mabye he is being saved. or shouting for a helicopter or plane....
shit like that.

could be completly wrong.
thats what i think anyways.

The banner is a fat guy on the beach running between oil that has washed up on the beach from the leak in the shape of CGDC8. We get to design a game that creates a way to plug/stop the leak and clean up the ocean......or its "escape".

Call me crazy, but I didn't realized that could be the guys shadow; I saw a woman with a crazy person shaped hairdo. Do you see it? The space between the man and his shadow is the face; the shadow is the body/shirt.

This is exciting.

Sandbox? Particle physics? Summer?

Cheese?

Weight loss? Exercise? Sports? Beach volleyball? Mining? Racing? Survival?

The letters remind me of either a hole being filled with delicious buttery popcorn, or a collapsing tunnel. A fat man running can go along with both those ideas. Ach, the suspense!

A) Biggest Loser-esque.

B) Food-inspired.

C) Sand physics.

Maybe it's all about fat people. The letters might be made out of doughnut and then 060110 is the guy's weight in pounds. I can see some great games coming out of that. Get the fat guy through the door, squash as many people as possible by rolling down a hill, keep replenishing the buffet counter before the fat guy runs out of food... The possibilities are endless!
