  • Since the closing date is near, can we submit prototypes or demos? Also can we submit more than one game?
  • @SkinnyBoy I'm not involved, but knowing what they're looking for I would say prototypes and demos are good! So are multiple game submissions!
  • My general strategy for submitting games to festivals, awards and things: if they don't specify and it doesn't cost money, then just submit! Read the instructions and feel free to ask questions, but it's IMHO it's up to the organisers to be specific if they want to narrow down the submissions they receive. If they don't want your game they can just reject it, and maybe next time they'll be more specific so they don't get overwhelmed with submissions ;)

    @VQZX if we submit now and have an update closer to the time can we re submit or?
  • also in which city is the Exhibition ?
  • It's really hard to deliver on time especially if you are trying to deliver good quality, especially on african content that is almost non existent. So deadline has crashed us. Congratulations to those who submitted
