This being a Mini-LD, you don’t get to just interpret that theme how you like. Instead, I tell you what it means!

Your job is to look through the LD archives at all previous entries to all previous LDs, and pick your favorite one that wasn’t made by you! Here is a handy link (warning, ten million screenshots, but much fun to look at!) to an archive of all that have been set up on the current LD site: Click me

Then do a cover of that game.

What is a cover? It’s not an exact remake. That would be pointless. You want to take that original concept and remake it in your own unique style, so that the end result is truly your own, just using the original game as inspiration (and cloning material). You can make the title be some minor variation of the original (“Commies+” or “PuffBomb Alpha”), a parody of it, or just a plain old sequel number.

Don’t forget all art, sound, and code must be your own creation this very weekend. Just because you’re stealing someone else’s idea doesn’t mean you can steal their content too.

So find your favorite, and get covering!

Entries must be in by 11PM GMT on Sunday, Nov 9th!
