Java 4K Game Programming Competition

Post: #1
Hi, I'd like to introduce to you Macintosh game developers this Java 4K game programming competition.

The Java4K competition is a game programmer competition. The goal of the competition is to create the best game possible in Java. So what's the catch? There is a 4KB limit! That means maximum of 4096 bytes!

This is the 5th Java 4K competition, one each year, and every year we see over 50 games submitted. It is among the most popular competition among Java Game developers at JGO ( community forums, where this competition started.

If you have nothing better to do over the holidays this is the perfect time to get your hands dirty, learn how to make games, and actually release some games!

Check out for more information.

You should be able to run most of those games on MacOSX, since of course it's Java Smile

We also have the official developers forums at if you need help writing these tiny games.
