The deadline is less than 12hrs away and it’s time to clarify how the submissions will work. I wrote this without input from my co-organizers (they’re sound asleep) so there might be some minor tweaks once we get started.
You will need to have done all of the below before 14.00
Send your entry zipped up and ready to play to email@example.com Note that’s it’s .se not .com, you will get an email back to confirm we got your entry.
If it’s over 5mb please put it online somewhere and post a link instead. USB-memory is also okay if necessary.
Hook your teams designated demo computer up to the projector and speakers to make sure everything’s working okay. The projector has a native resolution of 1024×768 but seem to take most inputs gladly.
Prepare a two minute playthrough of your game, there’s a whopping 22 teams, so you need to keep it short. If you go over 3 minutes we will stop you (we have shurikens)
Once the clock hits 14 we’ll start with the demos, that should take about an hour. After all the demos, set up your game running on a computer and we’ll have a walkaround playtest. It’s a good idea to take turns with your team members to watch the computer so you can make sure your players get a proper experience.
Once the clock hits 16.00 we set up for a lecture by our friends from Denmark.
Once that’s done we vote and cheer. After that a quick cleaning session. Then we eat and party. More about that later.
The time for No More Sweden is closing up fast, we’ve been getting some questions about practicalities lately, so here’s a post to clear those up:
There will be wireless internet available. But NO cabled access. Make sure you’ve got a wifi-dongle or something.
We’ll try to arrange for as many power outlets as we can, but don’t expect anything more than one outlet per person. So bring enough power strips to cover all your needs, if you have a few extra outlets to spare, that would be greatly appreciated.
You can drink alcohol at the venue, but there are people working and possibly bringing in customers in the same building, so keep it sensible.
The venue is at ground floor and has large windows to the street, there are blinds, but we’ve been recommended not to leave any valuables there as they’ve had some problems with breakins during the night. But this is assuming we’re not there, and I suspect we will be. 😉
Update: My phone number (martin) is +46706034762 give me a call if you can’t find the venue, are lost or anything like that.
If you have any more questions, do post them in the comments and I will update this post accordingly.
We just got the last couple of signups in which brings the total tally up to 33 34 people. Amazing.
That means that everyone that wanted to attend so far has gotten a place, there might be a few more spots, but I can’t make any promises. If you’ve mailed firstname.lastname@example.org and haven’t gotten a confirmation, post a comment on this entry and we’ll dig your mail out from the spam filters.
We’re putting the final touches on the schedule, expect that to be posted here within a week.
The response has been great and we’ve just now reached twenty five attendees.
The limit we have is thirty so if you want to come make sure you drop us a line right now!
