Hey guys, I just want to get some quick answers from the community so I can make an early decision:

One prospective participant wants to reuse his entry from last year for this year's contest (revamped to include this year's rules, of course.)

DOES ANYONE OBJECT TO THIS?

I decided to make a video so I can keep the whole debate in one place.

Please voice your opinion in the comments there. I will use those comments as the basis of my decision on Saturday.

We will send in the same game we participated with last year. But they won't have much in common.
Due to a massive rewrite (port to another engine, GameMaker: Studio) the only thing which will stay is the GD-chapter. But even this will be completly rewritten.
We hope that we can participate without any penalty because we only kept the game's name.

EXECUTIVE DECISION MADE:

Old game submissions are allowed, as long as all old content is excluded/made inaccessible.
Hopefully, my decision is made clear to everyone. If you're still confused by this, it might just be a better bet to submit a new project.

First official committed entry was submitted today. Looking forward to the rest!

You still have roughly 3 months to develop your games, and don't forget that even if you submit a game, you can replace it with a later version anytime before the deadline of July 3.

Hey guys.

This is just a quick warning that I will be out of touch for a week or so, just in case some of you decide to start submitting.

I'll be back in roughly a week to catch up on whatever I missed.

That deadline is creeping up rather quickly, so please don't delay!

Sincerely,

YoSniper

So, with the contest being about 75% done and only one committed entry, and dead silence on this thread and everywhere else I can see, and with my withering patience, I'm seriously considering just cancelling the whole thing.

If you guys can give me a reason why I should see this through to the end, I will do so, but things are looking bleak and I'm finding myself wanting to pull away from fangames entirely.

I'll give it a few days and if nothing materializes, I'll end things.

I've been too busy with all the other projects i'm in right now to start working on a brand new game. Sorry :(

Post by: ValDenStudios on June 03, 2016, 03:27:56 pm
Well, the development of the IWKTM2 Remaster will take significantly longer than expected. We don't think that we will able to finish it till July 1st, but we want to send it in later.
We thought about participating with I Wanna Be The Korean but unfortunately the whole project got lost in a data grave. :(

Well, in any event, I've decided that I will at least live this contest out through the deadline.

Deadline is July 3rd anyway, so if you can make it in, I look forward to it.

Life's just gotten me down lately, and as much as I tried to not get too invested in the contest this year, it inevitably happened again.

Ya finally got some competition, WetWookie.

DEADLINE IS IN A WEEK AND A HALF FOR THE REST OF YOU!
Title: Re: YoSniper's Fangame Contest 2016 *LAST CALL*
Post by: YoSniper on July 02, 2016, 10:34:56 pm
LAST CALL for submissions.

I don't know how late I'll stay up Sunday night, but when I wake up Monday morning, I'm calling it, regardless of how many submissions I have at that point.

For the record, this is the final contest I will be hosting.
Title: Re: YoSniper's Fangame Contest 2016 *CLOSED, JUDGING TO COME...*

Contest is now closed. Thank you all to those who participated. Not entirely sure what I'm going to do about judging yet, but we'll get there.

I feel like enough stress has been relieved, so I'll open the doors for prospective judges. I'm looking for a total of 7 this time, and that's just so I can get enough votes to gather a fair consensus.

I would, and while there's nothing specifically prohibiting from the same person judging twice in a row, it'd seem kind of needy and boring of me. Maybe next year, sorry.

Sure, I'll judge. I wanted to last year but couldn't since I entered. [/Derf]

Sorry guys, but my judge list is already full.

Thanks anyway!

For those interested in playing my submission (I Wanna Dance With Daggers) please note that the game uses an integrated online leaderboard for completion time. Because the contest version of the game includes god mode and teleport, scores will be submitted to a temporary contest leaderboard. Anybody wishing to have their completion times counted on the official leaderboard will need to download the official release version of my game which does not have god mode and teleport. Saves between the two versions are not compatible.
