Yeah but I wouldn't advise submitting until you're actually finished.


You'll just get a lot of negative reviews and it won't be worth your time. I'd advise publishing it on the Stencyl arcade as a work in progress and linking to that.

Am I allowed to submit my published LD32 entry to the Stencyl Jam after making major edits? I'm wondering if I should update it ASAP to enter it, or if it can wait a while.

You have until our jam's deadline to submit the game, regardless of what other contest(s) you've submitted the game to.

I don't understand how this works. Let's say I've made a game that can work in both mobile & flash. I'll upload the game to Newgrounds for the contest.

May I still market my game as my own game for android & ios?

So, what's the deadline (time wise)?

As I live in Britain. I'm guessing that if I submit before midnight on Monday, it will still get accepted - as it would still be Monday evening, in the states.

Or does the game have to be submitted before Monday?

You have until 11:59 PM on Monday itself to submit. Tom is known to be lenient and may still accept submissions that were made early on Tuesday as well as *small* adjustments that fix game-breaking bugs (same as what Ludum Dare allows).

Ahh, that's cool.

When I upload it. Newgrounds wont have any ownership etc. Over it. Will they?

No they wont.
And you can even remove from their site later on if you want. But its not needed. The game will always be yours.

And I do recomend you to use Site Lock.

Is that so people can't use the game on other sites?

That happened with my first game...

Yep...
Use site lock and that wont happen again.
Same thing happened to me on last Stencyl Jam.
My game did appear on 100 other sites.

Is it OK to submit a game with 480x320 dimensions?
