Yep. This is an AP European History class preparing for the AP Euro test. Studying every important ism, person, event and war in European history is overwhelming but also really helpful!

What's going on this year?
Last year we had +130 games  running for Stencyl Jam.
For Stencyl Jam 2015 we still have only 14.

I know that a lot of developers, including myself,  will include their game near the end of the Jam, as they need to polish their game.
But still, we have only 14 days to go and only 14 game running.

What's happening this year?
The prizes are great, the audience is great. Everything on Stencyl Jam is great.

Most likely a few are waiting till nearer the end to show their game - I only this last few days put a video up of my game, but I'll be going right until the last couple of days before I enter and make it available.

Maybe a lot of people this time are making better use of available time or something? Did alot of games become available last time long before the end? I don't recall.

Yes they did.
A lot did subscribe only in the last few days. Thats normal and expected.
But last year at this time (14 days to go) we had more than 14 games. Probably 3 times that number - but I dont remember that precisely.

Maybe we are all polishing our games. That is great.

I want to participate.  I'm making a game with a friend.  Is there still chance right?

It's going to be a game on one week, but still we have been planing this for some other weeks, so the planing at least is an advance.

We will be publishing the game on may 11.  Do we need to post an advance before that date? (I mean... is obligatory?)
Everything is good if have pixel art on it...

No its not.
The judges will only analyze your game after May 11. So its alright to publish your game on the deadline.
So dont worry.

Is it acceptable to use Extensions from Shared Resources? Specifically, the Dialogue Extension.

Thanks to everyone who submitted a game for this jam.

The deadline has *technically* passed, but Tom will probably still take any entries that are submitted in the next few hours.

I'm pretty sure I won't win, but I learned lots of things. It was a great experience, and I can't wait to see the results!
I ♥ coding.

Hello.

I wonder why my game is not listed here:
http://www.newgrounds.com/games/browse/tag/stencyljam2015/min_score/0#sort:score

I uploaded my game on time, I wonder if this is just a mistake of the newgrounds search tool.
