Writing and brainstorming is allowed even before the contest, just don't create the project file yet to prevent a certain incident in the first Indie in a Week from happening again.

As the OP puts it, "We can't preventstop you from thinking!" XD

So, I am usually the guy who asks the most obscure, niche kind of clarification on rules, but I have to know: If I start writing ideas down for the game, does that qualify as working on it? I have a few ideas I don't want to be lost in the Maelstrom, but if thats a violation, I am sure more will churn up.

Brainstorming is generally allowed, but generally resource creation isn't allowed until contest start.

 

Ex. I had an idea floating around since before the contest, and I plan on acting on it for IIAW5.

Eh, you guys are answering the questions before I can.

Thanks  :thumbup3:

 

In general if I like your post, that means you are right. But i'll also quote for the sake of clarification.

Here's a handy counter, like Riki did for a previous IIAW (I think it was Riki...)

(Admittedly, it is not self updating unless page is refreshed...lol.)

Take whatcha get, unless you know a lot more about BBCode and embedding than I do, lol. It works to give you a general idea.

 

Jackus, think you can edit it into the OP?

To be honest, at first glance I didn't realize the timer was for "Until the Start of Contest"; I almost hyperventilate seeing it's less than six days left... XD

 

And a second later, "Oh, it's just a pre-contest timer."

It's ambiguous w/o context, I guess. My bad.

From what I know, BBCode can't handle such a thing. Using html etc. would work though.

Would just like to take a moment to mention that there are now 20 contestants for IIAW5.

This beats the high score of 18 with IIAW4, making this the biggest Indie in a Week so far.

 

Keep em coming guys, this is gonna be good!  :thumbup3:

I was just wondering about how many people had signed up. Lets hope there is a >75% submission rate!

I'm sure it's gonna be 100% now that we get to choose the theme.  B)  And I know just what do. You can't write the story and dialogues now, right? :(:ph34r:

You can, just nothing implemented yet until event starts. 

 

I haven't started the project yet. I'm writing on Word.
