Nice idea :)

Just wondering if it's game mock up, as in having "energy bars", "high score tables", "timer" etc. Or is it more like a title screen with "press start," "credits" etc.?

1. It is harder to create larger pieces in a week and hence having larger canvas size would not encourage as many entries.
2. In this case, it is a game mock up, so it makes sense to have a standardised screen size.

how about we start having some challenges that don't have size restrictions. I'm getting a little bored with the same old crap. Ex: No trans, No animation, (over used -TINY- palette sizes). Lets let people show us what they are capable of, I'm ready to see some large pixel challenge entries again....Anyone else?

That totally messes up my work now.. D:

I don't get the weird canvas sizes.  Surely 320x240 would be better for a game mock up?

Hmm, I might try this. Its easier than the UFO compo.
