The final hours.

winners

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 competition@nomoresweden.se
    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)

The teams will show their games in the order they signed up. Assuming they have  a confirmed submission sent in.

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.

Minor updates to the schedule

I’ve made some minor adjustments to the schedule:

  • There’s a thirty minute cleanup on saturday to get the worst mess out of the way before we’re hung over.
  • There’s a set time for the cleanup, the doors won’t be open since it’s a sunday so make sure you’re here during that time. If you can’t make it, tell us and we’ll arrange something.

Check it out.
