Seems we have a good enough number of people interested to get this show on the road. Those of you who remember last year's Completition might remember how things played out. You enter an unfinished game (or start one from scratch) and keep everyone else up to date with progress blogs (which I deem mandatory but there's no real punishment aside from not getting to show off). This year will be no different except in lenience. Further details below.
Progress checks will happen every two weeks. Participants must post a progress blog AND/OR a screenshot before or during this progress check, which will last the entirety of the weekend it falls on. I will make a blog during these progress checks, showing a compilation of what people have accomplished during that two weeks.
I'm not going to penalize anyone for not meeting this progress check, but I'd highly recommend participating in it as it helps boost activity and builds interest in your game as well as others'.
There aren't many rules and nobody's going to get disqualified for anything, but I just want to answer a few questions before they're asked.
- You are allowed to work on existing games, no matter the level of completeness.
- You are allowed (and encouraged) to post screenshots, videos, and demos.
- Given the nature of the Completition, you're not required to do everything within the event period.
- You are allowed to use content you didn't make yourself, as long as you have permission from the creator
- Finally, please don't be stingy. Comment on others' work. Play some demos, give some advice. We're creators and we need this sort of thing.
How to Enter
Just like last year, this is public entry. Leave a comment telling us a little about the game you're entering. Tell us the name, show us a screenshot, and tell us what you plan to do with the game. Now is the time to set some realistic goals, such as play time, core mechanics, and stretch goals.
There's no cutoff for late entries but any entries that happen during the competition period must still be made on this blog (don't worry about bumping), using the same format as the other entries.
If you're having trouble deciding what game to work on, post them here and ask others which game they want to see. You'll have to give a description and screenshot for those too, but I'll still keep track of the entries.

The event will begin on Saturday, June 7th, 2014
and will end on Sunday, August 3rd, 2014
The start time is up to your interpretation, but the end time will be at 11:59 PM GMT, during which I'll round up all the finished games, consolidate them in a single ZIP file, and say a few words of praise.
But there's nothing stopping you from starting now. I just thought that giving people a few days would be better than "HEY GUYS WE'RE STARTING RIGHT THIS SECOND GET HYPE".
