Is the port of a game allowed by the compo rules ?
My first game : Twin Dragons available at Broke Studio.

It depends on the nature of the port. Some ports are allowed, such as my port of the 240p test suite (by permission through the GNU GPL; ruling by NESHomebrew). But don't try to submit anything that infringes copyright, like a port of Tetris.

If we keep the "originality" category a port seems likely to bomb there.

Basically it is to discourage 10 pong clones. Especially since nerdy nights pretty much completes a pong game. But honestly, feel free to submit a pong clone. There will just be no advantage, if we keep that category.

and will there be 1 compo, 1 cart, or 2 compos, 1 cart? I think that's the most radical question. The other ones are details imo.

One competition consisting of two categories. Basically the same as 2014 guys.

I will try to make an official thread shortly, I've been working 12hr night shifts the last 3 days and really haven't had time to put anything together. I'm also limited by the proxy at my work (they block NA as a "gaming" site) so I don't have access to update the website. That being said, as long as things don't get too busy at work, I should be able to get an official thread started within the next 4 hours.

Still nodeadlineposted? Iwasexpecting Jan 31, if just so that the end of the period isn't occupied by holidays.

I can read I swear
