No pre-registration for the contest is required.  Simply submit your game by the August 31, 2023 deadline.  For a complete list of the contest rules, tips, and other information, please visit this website:  http://www.visionbasic.fun


Good luck to all contest participants!


If you don't already own a copy of Vision BASIC but would like to buy one, Dennis is providing a limited time discount to get you started.  Please visit https://visionbasic.net and enter the coupon code "Contest Fun!" (without the quotes) at the Shopping Cart screen to receive $10 off any package type being sold.  This coupon is available for everyone, whether you enter the game programming contest or not.  The 1.0e package is highly recommended, as it provides free worldwide shipping of the 318-page physical manual and a digital download of the software - perfect for users who don't require pre-made physical media.


What is Vision BASIC?

Vision BASIC provides over 100 new BASIC commands for bitmap graphics, sprites, characters, sound, interrupts, and more.  The programming environment includes features such as a memory manager, an improved program editor, simplified disk commands, user-created commands, and complete compatibility with emulators such as VICE and THEC64.  All Vision BASIC programs are compiled into extremely fast standalone machine language for execution, and assembly language can be mixed seamlessly with BASIC code to give an even further speed boost.
