Wonder how many will finish this time? Wasn't the record 13 entries?

Indie in a Week 4 surpassed it.

 

I meant submitted entries. IIAW4 was 17 entered, 13 submitted (1 DQ).

Wait... I cant use resources that dont allow for commercial use?
If i have a sprite that is ok for noncommercial, but for commercial use, then I can not use it?

It's actually the opposite. You can't use resources that are for non-commercial projects only.

@_@ quit confusing everyone, Kirimash. Please.

 

Any assets you have the rights to are valid for use in the competition. If they are made by you, or are public resources, you can use them. You cannot commission resources to be made for the contest, as that would mean someone else working on the project with you.

For clarity, correct me if I'm wrong:

 

As long as the original creator stated that it's fine for commercial or noncommercial purposes, it can be used.

If it needs permission from the creators to be used for commercial purposes, then you'll need to ask for it.

If it can't be used for commercial project, then you can't use it.

 

Regarding commissions, I thought the main page says it can be used but not recommended? (And if the creator knows it's the contest season, they'll probably not gonna finish it now for obvious reason XD /slapped)

Correct.

For the last one, you may ask the creator if they are okay with the resources being used in the contest. Some artists consider a contest to be commercial, and some don't.

 

 

Regarding commissions, I thought the main page says it can be used but not recommended? (And if the creator knows it's the contest season, they'll probably not gonna finish it now for obvious reason XD /slapped)

It's not recommended because you shouldn't waste your hard-earned moneyz on a contest that lasts a week. Plus commissions take a while.

Thanks for the clarification!

 

Agreed. My friend is an artist in dA, and as far as I know, she needs to take a few days to finish a drawing, which isn't worth it for a pretty short contest like this, especially if the customer ordered more than one stuff.

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.

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

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...)

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.
