Yeah, I don't mean to jump on the bandwagon, so I wont >.>
But honestly, I dunno if I'll finish it on time. I'm having a lot of fun making it though, so I'll keep going at it as best I can. I just don't know if I'll get to do everything that I have planned. I've still got most of the days left, so, fingers crossed!

You don't need to worry about getting everything done, just submit what you have got done.
Honestly, the only reason to drop out really is if you have nothing to submit at all by the end~

*Collapses on desk* I... *breathes* finished it.

*dies*

I literally scored the entire game in 20 minutes at 11:00 PM. Don't expect much xD. I started getting that panicky laugher you get when you get close to a deadline. It...It was quite the show.

Well done, but I wouldn't worry; we all get our best work done on a tight deadline :D

Looking forward to trying it out! Had fun with the submissions so far :)

Four people who finished and only two quitters. I'm liking the numbers so far! Next up on due dates is flapbat by the end of today, and Exhydra, PhoenixFire, and akatharsia all due in tomorrow. I'm looking forward to this~

Wow already few out? Well that's a surprise. Anyway. Don't count on us backing out. The work is going more than smoothly so far. Game is starting to take shape really well too. Unfortunately it will only be a prequel to the full game so don't expect too much out of it. One thing I can say though. The game is much more polished already than my last year's entry. Good luck to all. Back to work now ^.^

That's definitely good to hear. I'll fully expect to see your game in my PM box then before midnight on your due date then with such confidence. :P

Good to hear! You'd be surprised at how good unfinished things can be; it's a real shame when otherwise good work goes to waste and goes unseen just because it was never handed out due to "not being finished".

A story being complete isn't what makes the game good, and you'll get plenty of benefit out of submitting something and getting critique!  :)

Rep:

Speaking of critique, will we get to actually see what the judges thought about our game this time around? I was kinda disappointed that I didn't get to read any feedback after the competition was over.

Yeah. The games are being played and scored as they're being submitted, but none of the scores or feedback is being posted until a set date after the completion of the whole event; everyone's will be getting revealed at once.
You will definitely be getting feedback, and feedback from each judge as well as possibly the community too :)

I swear, this has to be true about all game makers... So I literally just finished up about~80% of the demo/game/chapter, and all that I have left is to polish up the graphics a bit, such as replacing some of the RTP defaults, add a few more customization mechanics to the start of the game, and, make sure there aren't any obvious bugs, like typos, or portals into a room, but not out of it...


Yanno, I think I may actually finish a game/demo for once. Less than 24 hours to go though (I'm on EST, so I have about 23 hours lolz)

I finished, but I think I'm past due and therefor disqualified?

Will the judges still play it?  I've never worked this hard on a game in my life, and I'm really happy with how it turned out!

I'm not a judge this time around, but whenever we did GIAW XI (the genre one), we still accepted late projects, but with point deductions. What about something like this?

Late by less than 1 hour = -.5 points from the OVERALL score.
Late by 1-24 hours = -1 point from the the OVERALL score.
Late by more than 1 day = disqualified OR -1 for every day late the project is. So, a project 3 days late would only be able to score 7/10 at MOST (projects very rarely score 10/10 or even 9/10 anyways).

It makes a huge difference in the scoring and in most cases would prevent someone from winning that GIAW, but I think it's fair to still let that person receive the feedback necessary for their projects - and we all know the feedback is the best part! B)

But that's just my opinion. It's up to the host and judges! :)

Thanks for your input.  I'm not concerned with winning, although pizza does sound nice!  I just want my game to still get played!  It's not fair to go past deadline anyhow.  There was no way I could have finished my game without the extra almost 24 hours.  So there's no point in comparing it to games that made the deadline, imo.

Up to Zylos in the end, although I'm happy to play and score it either way :)
Think yuyu's on point though, instant DQ for being late is a bit harsh and beyond the spirit of the game.
If you'd come back a week late I wouldn't accept it (personally) as it defeats the point of GIAW, but a couple of hours or a day...? Seems fine to be with point deductions of some degree.  Will wait till I get a decision from Zylos~

Only a few days left for me. I'm not sure how much I'll have done, but here's a screenie!
Spoiler for Reggina the chicken soup lady:
You can play as a male hero, or female hero. The one you don't choose ends up being your neighbor/ally.
I definitely want to continue this game after the contest, but for this week, I'm only planning on creating the first quest and battle.

Flapbat - I remember you asked to delay your start so I put you down for Tuesday, August 12th (since that was the time of your post in my timezone) to the 18th. Taking into account the timezone differences and when you actually started according to your post, you're still technically late by a few hours, but not nearly as bad as you thought you were. I'll discuss it with the judges; either way, it'll get played still. :3

Thanks Zylos!  I still feel like I'm breaking the rules though  ;)

Speaking of which, I've been playing through and had to re-upload.  There were a number of errors that stopped game progression...  So please do redownload from the same link!

For today, we have Exhydra, PhoenixFire, and akatharsia all due before midnight tonight. Exhydra and PhoenixFire have both posted some screens/info about their projects, so I've high hopes to see both of your projects in my box when I wake up tomorrow. Akatharsia hasn't really posted anything except when their start date is, but Imma cross my fingers that all went well and there'll be three projects submitted tonight.

After these three, we've got Kingjing due in tomorrow, followed by Chaos_Zexion, SamieltheMDS, and the Darkness & Axel duo due in the day after. I wonder who will be able to finish, and who'll fall flat of their deadline~ >:3

At this point, it's polishing up details for me (which I should be doing instead of being on here :P ), correcting typos, small glitches, etc.

I'm actually pretty damn proud of myself. It's far from the best work I've ever done, and now that I have a base to start from, I think I will actually be continuing this after the contest is over :D

I'm excited about my project for sure, but I think I'm going to reveal the details of how I came by the premise after the judging is completed.

Screenies to come. Possibly tonight!
