Annual Adrift Comp 2013

It took a little while (sorry about that) but the Annual Adrift Competition has hereby been officially launched.
I hope that we can make this an ongoing thing, so please put your doubts aside and join the competition.
1st prize will be 20 usd, paid either by paypal or Amazon voucher which ever would be preferred.
Donations for prizes are generously accepted. :wink: and will be divided depending on the amount and the number of games entered.
First donation has been offered. :D If we get at least five entries, a mysterious benefactor will give the first place winner a digital copy of Starbound, while second place gets Botanicula.

The Rules of engagement is as follows:

1. Game must be an original work.
2. Must be written with ADRIFT V4 or V5
3. A walkthrough must be included for the organiser to verify the game can be completed, but this doesn’t need to be made available to players.
4. Authors must sign up by November 1st and have their game submitted by December 1st
5. Authors can enter as many games as they like.
6. Judging will last a month (or shorter if we only get a few games, or longer if we get loads.
7. Authors are allowed to vote in the comp , but not for their own games.
8. Voting is on a 1 - 10 scale.
9. No updates to games are allowed during the comp, unless the update is to fix an issue with a new version of ADRIFT that is out of the author's control.
10. It's recommended authors have their games beta-tested, and beta-testers are allowed to vote on all entries.
11. Games can be password protected or not. It's up to the author.
12. Voting will be anonymous, but voters are encouraged to state why they voted the way they did and write reviews
13. Voters aren't required to play all the games in the comp but it's recommended that they play as many as possible.

Re rule 4, that's an awfully long time to have to give notice to enter before the submission.

I set that date because I wanted to get an estimate of how many that actually was entering the competition.
Should I postpone it? and what date would you suggest?

Well, for the IFComp you have to say you are entering 1 month before you submit your game. 6 months just seems excessive and I would think people's circumstances might change significantly in between.

I have just noticed that someone has posted the news about the Annual Adrift Comp 2013 on the IFWiIKI :shock:
This Means that the Word is out... I hope that many of you will enter the competition and thus help making Adrift known in wider circles.
Please, give it a go. Don't let this one fizzle out.

I may send something in just so we have more entries, but in the interests of having any chance in heck of actually finishing on time I will absolutely be treating this like a mini-comp, and possibly also using v4, so don't expect anything fancy!

Actually scratch the above post, I've got a decent-sized game in the works with v5 that I've just been going full steam ahead on the last few days. The faster I finish it the less time I have to get distracted by something else*!

Anyone else planning to enter?

*(Like those pesky elevator floors for DazaKiwi I've been sitting on forever and constantly feeling bad about not finishing up...)

Yep! me 8) But I guess that goes without saying.
It has been kind of "quiet" areound the Anual Adrift Comp 2013, but I hope that people will give it a go. This is a great chance to make something of Adrift.
Oh.. by the way.. You may want to check out the Original Post.. Someone has donated prizes for the Anual Adrift Comp 2013.

Ha! I only got ADRIFT a week ago, and that was only for the Runner. But I looked into it and it looks quite cool.

I'll try to get something done. Seriously no promises though, seeing as I'm entering a grammar school in 2 weeks (of this post).
I still need to get testing with ADRIFT etc.

Hope the comp' is cool, though! :)
