You have a day to upload and send us your game.

Start packing your blends up you’ve got a day to upload the files and send them to us. Please find below instructions on how to submit your entry.

prepare your blend files as follows:
Back data into blend file(file, external data, pack data into blend file)
[Extra step for windows users]
Save game runtime(enable in addon panel, file/user prefrences/addons/game engine:save as game engine runtime/ then file/export/ save game engine runtime)
Then zip up the blend file and upload it to somewhere online

We recommend –
Dropbox(public folder) https://www.dropbox.com/
Google drive(share public) https://drive.google.com
Blend swap http://www.blendswap.com/
Paste all (packedblend files only)http://www.pasteall.org/blend/
Leave a coment in this thread with a link to your game and ur work in progress thread then we will get back to u with links. You could also email us directly at ([email protected])(with a subject of bgmc11 entry, with eather a link to ur blend file or the actual file if it will fit in an email, just make shure to pack data)
Remember to also say what version of blender you used so that everyone can play the way you intended.

All the games will be downloaded by me then uploaded to the bgmc Google drive to ensure that people don’t update the files while they are being judges as that would not be fair.
Then the voting will open ounce everyone has submitted and the votes will be open for a week . People who submitted games will be given a game and a link to track the downloads of their submision. Then link your friends and get a buzz around ur game and the challenge.
Thanks again everyone for the turn out and hard work you have all put in , I’m sure there a lot of great game projects came out of this challenge.

So next Sunday! :wink:

Go check the rules http://www.bgmc.tk/p/aboutrules.html

Otherwise, the theme is really nice, i start working on a small scene.
So I think I will participate for the first time! :yes:


(Thatimster) #9

What time-zone are we talking about for the deadline?


(Josip Kladaric) #10

Don’t worry about time zones, you have 7 days to work on your game and then 1 day to upload and submit your game.

(wallmasterr) #15

Yes groups can also enter but not may do. Most people will be going it solo i think. And yes its just bge, no unity , can make textures and audio and stuff in other programs though.
Looking forward to your entry :slight_smile:


(isyedcg) #16

Great. .our team consists of 6 members. .and we will compete this time as a team for the first time :slight_smile:


(DownshiftDX) #17

Wish I could spend some time whipping something small up but the timing is just no good. People out sick and on vacation means non-stop work hours this week. Can’t wait to see what is produced though.


(Kheetor) #18

Wow, look at that!

Is it just me or do we really have huge, huge, huge! amount of participants?


(Josip Kladaric) #19

yeah, we have more and more participants every time.


(Thatimster) #20

Where do we submit the final game if we have to submit it earlier than the deadline?
