      Oh damnit! The more I think about my project, the more I think it's too ambitious for the time frame!

    Indie in a Week 4!

    Those references that you guys made up are fine, since they're uh, "vague" enough. @Akahosu Naoto I don't know what you mean by neutral song, but if it is mentioned that you are permitted to use said song in a game project (and in commercial usage, to be safe) then it is allowed. Again, it's about permission.

    @Kirimash Yes, basically. This was discussed for a bit, and I think that the conclusion was that if it's just a subtle reference (and uses original resources, not ripped ones), it's fine. But if you are trying to directly reference a character (or other distinct things from a work), it might fall into copyright. To be safe, I'd recommend not trying to include cameos of characters or glaringly obvious direct references from other commercial copyrighted works (without permission, of course). Although some other works (even commercial ones) do a bit of copyright avoidance to include an innocuous reference (such as replacing a letter from a popular brand to represent the brand, but technically it is not the brand), it is still risky sometimes. Indeed, perhaps they may not sue you due to the insignificance of the work (doesn't gain significant profit or steal away attention from the actual copyrighted product), but it's better to be safe. It's also a good practice, especially in the case of creating/releasing games. And besides, if there is an obvious potential copyright infringement that we/the judges/Jackus spot in your game, it will be up for disqualification. If anything, I'd suggest to exercise originality/independence in the game that you will make. 12 hours and 10 minutes left until it starts, I believe. (I think the timezone is BST/IST instead of GMT, the time depends on Jackus's current time/date) So... better get ready, guys! (I didn't ) I just procrastinated the week before the game starts away, probably not a good sign. XD

    Yes, It counts as a resource. You can only start to make resources intentionally for your IIAW entry AFTER the contest starts. Just a reminder for other contestants, music that's already there/publicly available is okay. (because they weren't made for your game, you're just able to use them) I'd call this more of a challenge than a contest, actually. After all, that's the fun of it.

    Welp. I don't think I'll be able to do anything with this amount of time left. I really don't have anything made. XD I made the best edit to Riki's timer though. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    Guess what we were doing. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) jk Actually I just became so lazy I couldn't bother myself to read the forums and open Skype. I hope nobody thought that I was disconnecting myself so I could actually work. Because I didn't, I just procrastinated even MORE. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I feel you on that, I spend way too much time doing the graphics. I'm going to spend this hour panicking and drawing... in vain. I think it's time to upload Harold (and co.) standing in a plain of grass... inb4 my internet is too slow and fails upload in time This... is the most I have ever procrastinated in the span of 7 days. Yet again, I get an actually doable idea within the final days. Not enough time to even do my simplified (compared to my first day ideas, which are overly complicated) game. Wait a second... I can probably do Procrastination I again. Do intro and then GET STUCK INSIDE YOUR ROOM. In silence. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) -procrastinates away the remaining 1 hour and 42 minutes-

    Indie in a Week - 1st 24 hours (ish)

    Go Drass, go! You must win... again! XD I'm having problems with the theme too (same as last time). I think I'll just start the project and make up a bunch of random things on the way... Better than nothing.

    I could update it myself by re-copying the image from your signature as soon as I spot a change. I don't know about Jackus, though. I could also just edit it myself if I knew the bar background color. But you may be making a gif. (I actually tried to make a gif of the red arrow in the timer icon moving around. It sucked. ) In that case let's just all agree to update when you do as soon as possible. XD

    Yay! I'm not alone! XD Indie In A Week? More like Game Idea In A Week.

    I guess Jackus will be silent if you ask him about it. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

    5 minutes left. I like to imagine Riki's timer flashing much faster and displaying "CRITICAL CONDITION!!" XD

    20 minutes before I start procrastinating harder than usual.

    0_0 ... School is really disturbing me, I can't even work on my things. =/ Procrastination is really disturbing me, I can't even work on my things. One hour until the apocalypse starts.

    Finally, I managed to press 'Like' on every post in the topic... I sure am procrastinating a lot nowadays (not like I didn't procrastinate back then ). Let's hope I don't do that as much when it's the game-making period... But then again, I'll be naming my game Procrastination 3. The next installment of my utterly crappy IIAW game series. XD

    Hold on a sec... Indie In A Day Or Two was what I did at the previous IIAW. XD Although I needed three days, I guess.

    It's "ganbatte". It means "do your best" somewhat in Japanese.

    Darn, I was trying to like all the posts in the topic but I reached my quota. Anyways, I apologize to the people (Mitch, Magic and Nya) that I forgot to add to the participants list. It seems that I had a blind spot on the lower-middle part of the 2nd page. I completely missed your posts. (And Jackus did, too.) XD Welp, better warm up! The game-making period comes closer. I guess I better warm up too...
