I looked at 2016, and we had 12-14 project threads by this time (May).

Just asking, since I'm not sure.

Are we only submitting remixes this year?

If the regular rules are in play, are people working or planning anything?

I've had a lot less time this spring than i imagined at last years' compo conclusion, so i haven't put my mind to a new compo entry just yet. :(

The usual/remix question is a good one, that never got cleared up afaik.

I have no plans to submit a game this year.

I considered submitting a non-game music related program, in Category 2.

I have an idea for a simple game that I'm considering making for the competition. But I haven't heard clarification about whether it's a normal competition or not.

And who am I kidding, I'll probably wait until November again before I start on it :-)

I was under the impression that there'd be a main category (64K discrete game), a remix category, and an anything goes category.

I'll probably make something small.

The life issues that killed Wrecking Balls turned out to be permanent. I'm still trying to get back into NESdev, but it ain't happening in a hurry. :(

I just have no good ideas for small games :roll:
Depending on what state it’s in, I may end up submitting my current project in the non-contest category, just to finally get some publicity / feedback. Although I was originally planning for that to just be its own thing.

Of course, it would always be cool to collaborate with somebody.

No plans, no ideas, no time.

I have a couple of ideas. I hope I can start working on them soon.

Just like the last two years I'm hoping to make something this year as well (so we'll see how well that goes....), but nothing has been announced about the compo yet, so I think it would actually be weird if people start announcing entries at this point?

"But the direction we were looking for is to have an annual schedule that can be copy pasted from one year to the next. Without letting deliberations on what we should do this time drag on to the point where they delay the compo."

viewtopic.php?f=33&t=15845&p=194085&hilit=annual#p194085

"It's concluded. Between the 3 of us the decision was made to stick to original deadline of Jan 31st. The goal is to have an annual compo that can be relied upon to end Jan 31st each year. If you've missed out on last year's compo, you're just in time for this year's."

viewtopic.php?f=32&t=14348&p=188030&hilit=annual#p188030

"Also, since we are going to make this a yearly thing, the contest will essentially be starting up again right away once we get all the info sorted from this(last?) years competition. "

I'll definitely be trying to pull something together this time around.

I have plenty of ideas but I need to focus. I'll try to get started this summer.

I like the remix idea, but does it need its own category? How many people have intentions of doing a remix entry?
