Allow 5 minutes to fill out this short form about your game!
Allow yourself at least an hour to gather all your files & screenshots and prep for submission.
Secret: If you are short on time, just fill out what you can, and update your submission right after local presentations. GGJ Official says that "pencils down" is 3pm, and Uploads are officially due at 5pm. Though really...just have fun making a game, and upload what you can. Submissions don't have to look pretty or be perfect! Just submit something!
Be sure the files you are uploading abide by GGJ Official's Official Rules. Your stuff will be submitted under an Open Source license, though you (the creator) can go off and continue developing your game, profit, etc. Read the Rules if you need more information. ...and if in doubt...maybe leave it out?
GGJ Official would like files organized in a specific structure. Here's an Example Directory. Your main directory (folder) should have a license file and 4 sub directories: /Source, /Release, /Press, and /Other.
This is for the actual source files, like C or C++ files and assets like sound, music and art. Do not include game engines or tools. Do include your project folders from Unity or GameMaker. Write a README file that explains how to use your code to make the game. For non-digital games, your PDF instructions would go here. Test to make sure you have everything!
This is for the executable version of your game. If possible, you can include multiple versions for different architectures (like Mac OS X, Windows versions and APK files). Include a README file that explains what OS or environment is needed to run the game.
This is for screenshots and videos about your game. Include at least one 1024x768 screenshot of your game. If you have links to YouTube videos or other online resources, put them in a text file here.
Anything else you like! For example: More licenses, Credits, Contact information.
Zip up your main project directory.
Prepare a Featured Image, Screenshots, Team Photo, and Video if you have one. Yeah, that's a lot. Just do what you can.
