CONTEST IS CLOSED!
Game Jolt's third contest is now up and running! Don't forget to check the rules and details below, and give it all you've got!
November 1st, 2009
The contest will run for a week from November 1st to the midnight between November 7th and November 8th Eastern US Time. (view the end time in your timezone)
The theme is Minimal.
This can be taken in many ways, such as minimalistic graphics, storyline, instructions, or even gameplay (though that may be a tricky one to tackle)!
Three winners will be picked. All three will be featured on the front page of the site. The first place winner will win a free single game of their choosing from Steam (no packs)! All contestants will also receive a Bloody Good Time -- courtesy of Game Jolt.
- Your entry must be an original game created just for this contest.
- Your entry must relate to the chosen theme.
- Collaborations are fine. Go for it with someone else! We like team work!
- Multiple games can be submitted. (You can not place more than once, though. If you get first place with one game, you won't get second or third with another)
- There are no restrictions on creation tools, libraries, file sizes or anything like that. We like diversity. Make it in Flash, make it in Construct, code it up from scratch yourself, we don't care. Just make sure it runs on a Windows operating system, or all the judges may not be able to play it.
- Pre-existing game engines are acceptable.
- You're encouraged to place the contest poster in your game, although it's definitely not a requirement.
How to Enter:
To enter your game into the contest, you must upload the game to the main site. After doing that, reply to this forum post with the URL to your game.
We'd love some help in spreading the news. If you frequent any forums, or know of/own any blogs, it'd be great if you posted news about the contest. This site will only get bigger with support from YOU. If you've posted it in your blog or in a forum, or know of any site that has, you may post the URL to the site in this thread: http://gamejolt.com/community/forums/topics/spread-the-word-game-jolt-compo-3/188/
