Hi,

 I also would like to give it a go, but I maybe without getting prizes neither, tricky, not that I think I would do better, but it could be seen as rigged or something...

i think, I will give it a go, but submit it aside so that it doesn't go in the poll.

Bye,

 Jean

Feel free to join using a pseudonym. Since you can make up any name for your itch account, no one will know it is you. :)

Hi.
@ jean

I do think you should join and include in the poll as only the community will be the judges.
As it is also nice to see feedback of what you did :)

You can always give the prices to the next winner (or raffle or whatever)

Hi Jammers,

We have come to the last day of Playmaker Game Jam 2019. A few tips to help make your end result go smoother.

1.

You can choose 'submit your project', before you are 100% complete. Follow the steps to make a new game page on itch. You can setup the description, title, any pictures you want and more, BEFORE uploading your game. When you save the page, it will default to save as a draft. Think about getting your page ready early.

Leave a good description or instructions of game play on your itch game page. If there is a major bug or issue, don't be afraid to point it out (this will help users avoid frustrations).

2.

Make a build now. Just do it. Even if you are not 100% done your game, try making a build to make sure it will work. Sometimes errors crop up during the build process. Again, don't wait till the very last minute to find this out.

3.

Gather together your list of any (free/open source) third party assets you used. You will need to give this list when you make your final submission. Its helpful to have it together early. Failure to submit this list, will result in a ban from the game jam. Period.

4.

Zip your built game folder into a zip for upload. This is the easiest way to upload a game to Itch. Zip is preferred over RAR for maximum compatibility with end-users. Itch has a max size of 500 MB.

5.

Once Game Jam is complete, remember to leave time this week to play and score other users games. Please score AT LEAST five other peoples games. The same is expected of other people, otherwise, no one will get any reviews!

Good luck with your last day and see you on the other side!

Sincerely,

Eric Vander Wal

2019 Game Jammers,

If you have finished your Jam Game (or didnt finish but want to still want to submit), and you have passed your deadline. Please email me at eric_vanderwal@hotmail.com for assistance

A few Jammers each year miss the final deadline due to technical issues, such as having the game in draft mode. (Or the timezone being incorrect).

If you still want to submit, please upload your game to itch as you would normally. Make sure it is not published in draft mode.

Send me an email with the link to the game. Lets get this sorted ASAP!

Sincerely,
Eric

PS, extended the game jam submission time. It is once again open on the itch page for anyone who still needs it.
