Indie by Night

 

Rules:

 

  • Please submit your game before the specified time-frame. If you have questions, please ask ahead of time. Deadlines for submissions are at 11:59PM for your local time!

  • Please keep links valid until judging is over. If a link is invalid come judging time, this will get your entry disqualified.

  • Games that have problems loading (due to missing assets, etc) will be disqualified. Game bugs, if minor, will be allowed.

  • You are the only one allowed to work on your game. You may have people playtest, but nothing more.

  • You   can   use resources made by others/public resources.

  • No assets are to be made prior to contest start.

  • No copyrighted material without the express permissions of the copyright owner. If you have an email or other proof, please submit it in advance of submitting your game, or include the permissions in your submission post.

  • If you wish to be a judge, send me a PM. There will be 5 judges, myself included. Judging is to be semi-anonymous. You may reveal if you are judging, but it is discouraged.

  • You may stream games if you play them, judge or not. If you are not okay with your game being streamed, please note in your submission post.

  • FAQ:

  • Q: Why is sumission time local to everyone?

  • A: Finishing times are 3 days after start, but submission times are local to each member, so it gives plenty of time for people to submit (and not be left out).

  • Q: Can I use/edit premade assets that I made?

  • A: If you have premade stuff you'd like to use/edit, that's fine, just don't edit them prior to the contest.

Mmm. I don't think I have anything on that weekend so I will tentatively sign up.

 

This whole local time thing is confusing me. So we all start at the exact same time (hence the conversion?) but then we all finish at different times? 

If I'm understanding that right then isn't that just, y'know, unfair?

OP has been edited to reflect this, and hopefully clarify any confusion.

I'm not sure if I'll participate ~ I'll see if I'll have some time/ideas and perhaps sign up later.

Alright. If you decide to participate, shoot me a PM and post on here. I'll add you to the stack.
