I'd have to say, any challenge shorter than a week is not enough time for the average person. Especially for someone like me, who has 2 kids and a full time job. You'd be hard-pressed to find enough people able to participate in a competition like that and make anything satisfactory.

24 - 48hrs is not long enough, too little time, plus we all live in different time zones, British person wakes up is when murrican goes bed etc. 

like jacob and most others said even a week is too short.

Don't be afraid by time,Nirwanda and us won Duo Dev Challenge with a 24h game.

Another possibility would be to make a contest where everyone uses the same maps and assets . You would choose assets and make maps to fit a theme and when you publish them ,people have 24 or 48 h to make a game with only those

I'll probably post the topic a week prior (on the 3rd), and let everyone sign up, then when sign-ups close, there will be 4 days allotted to pre-production, then game-making starts. Does this sound about right?

Pre-production is fine, but 4 days is a bit excessive; it's longer than the event itself. IMO I would give it a day. I too would like to know what pre-production exactly means.

 

Pre-production is basically planning, with maybe a little asset creation. Plan story and other details.

So maybe like "Nothing other than basic RTP assets"?

I've extended the time frame by 24 hours, making it 72 hours (3 Days). The actual game-making will also be scheduled to fall on a weekend (Fri-Sun), when more people can actually make their games. I'll be accounting for time-zones too, when submission time comes around. No one will be arbitrarily locked out because they live in the UK (+5-8 hours from us here in the states). Pre-production will probably be 24 hours, with an extended sign-up period.

Alright guys! Poll is over!

 

Scheduled date for the contest is: October 10th

 

If you have prize donations (Steam codes, commissions, etc.), please send me a PM.

 

If you wanna judge, there will be 5 open slots for judges, just send a PM, and you'll be put on the list. Given the low number, no guarantees at being selected, unless there are 5 entries or less, lol.

 

If you have any feedback, please let me know here! This topic will be locked a week or two prior to the contest.
