[quote="QuaziGNRLnose":2eujixee]im sort of slightly unsure about one thing though. do we have to have the game completed before december 1st? do we need to have something to show on december 1st? or is this simply the day the compo begins, and people can start entering there stuff/sign up there game until the compo deadline which would be january 10th or something? or do we need to say were entering by December 1st, and have until the deadline to work on it?[/quote:2eujixee]
I guess it comes across a little confusing. You don't have to have anything done for now. It's just that you should sign up until Dec 1st. In order to do so, just create a thread as described. You can include as much info as you like. And as you are creating your entry, you can keep ppl updated about your progress inside that thread. So the competition would be sort of interesting to spectators along the whole runtime.
1. Dec official start of the compo. You should have signed up by creating a thread about your project by then. Maybe there's no point in being a nazi about this though...
January 10th the compo ends. Entries as complete or incomplete as they are need to be uploaded and linked in the game thread until then.
If there are any additional questions, suggestions, objections or whatever feel free to post!
