    I am definitely in! I am extremely nervous, but elated as well! I have never entered a competition of any sort before, but I am thrilled!

    I don't see a thread for the bundle.

    Are they all steam versions, or standalone? The blurb mentioned "keys" and then "redeem on Steam" so I'm not sure.

    @Archeia I'd love to enter the contest, but due to my health problems i can't enter, i'll be sleeping too much because of my medication.
    Hopefully there is another contest like this...one day.

    To everyone who do participate in this contest, i wish you all good luck.

    Will there be YouTube videos of the game entries? Or do you have to download and play all of the entries in order to vote on the People's Choice award?

    Perhaps I'll make a quick little game with no intent of winning.

    Time to find Moonlight Daemon's Grimiore Of Half-Decent Game Ideas. This may be my greatest challenge yet. It might even surpass trying to cook Turkey on Thanksgiving! Good luck everyone, and no hard feelings!

    One thing I've noticed, and I'm going to throw this out there to hopefully help the contestants, is the past winners (Grand prize and 1st - 3rd place) have all been full, complete, 1 hour games. No proof of concepts or demos of bigger games have ever won or placed in the contest so far.

    Under the Prize Conditions and Legal sections it says.
    "Degica reserves first publishing rights for games that win 1st Prize, 2nd Prize, and 3rd Prize."

    What does this mean exactly?

    Just to be clear, assets/scripts made prior to the contest can be used, as long as they were made for general use?

    Also, can we later sell the games we make? Or are they "contest exclusive"?

    EDIT
    Oh, I just reread the rules (I can't believe I didn't notice this the first time, but then again maybe the rules were updated for clarity) but it seems the answer to the first question is YES.

    You can do whatever you want with your game later, with exception to those that win 1-3rd place.

    With the prize winners, Degica reserves the right of first publishing. This means if you want to go commercial with it, Degica gets to say yay or nay on being the publisher first. If Degica is not interested in publishing it, you are then allowed to do whatever you want with it.

    (Which can be very financially lucrative to the winner, though a lot of work to polish it into a commercial project. OneShot was picked up from the first IGMC (though was not a winner), and you can see how well that has done through us).

    Since there is no thread on the humble bundle (that I could find), I am surprised XP is not available in this promotion but the rest of them are. Any reason XP was cut? I have them all on steam anyway, but I know someone who wanted to get XP sometime and thought this would have been a good opportunity.

    @DonPatchRM

    XP is listed in what you highlighted so I'm not sure I understand?
