I did say shatterhand would officially get things going in that thread. But he's said we can crack on so 1st of September will be fine. Anyone entering after that date should be given a proportional amount of time extra to finish. E.g. they start a week late they get another week. Up to 3 weeks after the 1st

Yeah, but he's being AWOL for virtually a month and apparently not back until the 22nd of September so...

Well let's stick to that then

That makes no sense... what's the point of having a start / end date then?

Going by what you've said that means that people could finish around the 21st of March 2019 depending, while others will be the 28th of February 2019 (and anything in between)

It was just an idea for those that haven't heard about the competition no big deal.

I'm sure any EAB members know about this by now, and probably people on other Amiga forums as well...

Also, Neil kindly publicised this on Indie Retro News a few days back

I will now adjust my posts to show:

Start: 1st of September 2018
Finish: 28th of February 2019 at 11:59pm UTC

Deadline is deadline, no matter the join date. Also it is not needed to declare an official start, so shifting a deadline regarding the start doesnt make sense.

OK Thanks for clearifying this out.

But one more question
Do I have to state now that I will participate in the competition or can I wait - f/e until my game engine is ready and I'm sure I'll produce anything worth showing to the community?

Totally up to you really but I think it's probably best to announce when you start the project

I would say entering now is in the spirit of the competition, but it's up to you. Nothing in the rules about it.

Part of the idea is to encourage development so showing your progress would seem to fit that goal, but it's not obligatory.

I doubt I'll be finished by the deadline but hopefully my efforts inspire those who can actually finish a project!

Please make clean rules, dates, deadlines for the competition. My experience in the last 3 or 4 contest that i'm participate or colaborate was a joke .
Fair and well-defined rules and a respect to the participants and the amount of hours and effort devoted to them indepently of contest position or quality of games.
I'm interested in the evaluation criteria you want use for the contest.

I think the dates and deadlines are clear and so are the rules, kikems.

I will not say I am joining the party until I am not sure my programming attempts are worth showing. I am still in the phase of searching for a good and original idea I hope it will come soon.

It may be that it has been said, but I do not speak English very much and I want to be clear after all I have had to do to be able to do the game. So I pray be understanding.
Once finished the game where you have to send it or publish it?
I have thought to read that in the same thread where I have put the advances, but I'm not sure.

Thank you

I guess once the competition has completed you then upload your game, finished or not, to The Zone!, attach to your thread or upload to a file hosting site...

Then it's over to the judges to download, assess and finally announce the winners.

I'll then contact / pay the winners out of the prize fund
