Anytime after you have registered until the deadline, you may submit your Final Demo Submission using the exact Game Title, Game Description and Contact Info of your Initial Registration. Once you have submitted your Final Demo Submission, you may not amend or edit your game so please make sure you have completed as much as you are going to before you submit. You may submit as many games as you wish but they must be separate and different game ideas. Each one will require a separate registration. You may enter the YPGCC as many times as you like but you must submit a separate registration form and demo submission for each entry or game.
What is a Game Demo? Game Demo should be a playable version of the game with enough of the game complete to give an idea of game play. Game demos can include a brief working version of a video game, basic cards for a card game, basic layout for a board game, etc. The more design and artistically complete a game is, the more likely it will be chosen as a winner due to playability and judges’ ability to see how the game will be once it is complete. It is in your best interest to have your Final Demo Submission be as complete as possible.
Prizes include a laptop, mp3 player, and/or cash!
