With only 2 weeks left before the deadline for our 5th Casual Gameplay Design Competition, it's getting down to the wire. With more cash and prizes (over $10,000) up for grabs than any of our competitions to-date, along with a supporting $10,000 advertising campaign via MochiAds from Mochi Media, there has never before been a better time to enter a CGDC than now!
Remember, the deadline is March 16th (end of day), and to enter you will need to fill out the CGDC5 Entry Form. So don't delay!
Highlights of questions that have come up during the last week include:
- When submitting our game to MochiAds for acceptance, will it also be published automatically to the MochiAds contest page and to other MochiAds locations? And wouldn't that be against the competition rules? - This is an excellent question. When submitting your game entry to MochiAds, it is important that you
do not check the box titled: "Yes! Distribute my game to increase my traffic" until AFTER the competition deadline or your game will automatically appear on the MochiAds contest page and distribution system thereby disqualifying your entry. See this screenshot for the exact location of the checkbox.
- Would posting my game entry on FlashGameLicense.com be allowed for the purpose of obtaining a sponsor? - Yes. FlashGameLicense exists solely to match up game developers with potential sponsors, and the games are not playable by the general public. However, you may wish to follow their advice about URL-locking your game and adding a disclaimer "For demonstration purposes only".
- May we post the same game that we submit to the competition to other portals, with the CGDC5 MochiBot button and MochiAds still counting towards the viral award, but with the other portals' API implemented? - Yes, you may submit your game entry with the CGDC5 MochiBot button to other sites with transparent changes to support their API as long as the CGDC5 MochiBot button remains functional (i.e., it brings the user to the CGDC5 competition page when clicked).
