Terms of participation

Hobby-Projects

The project must have been developed in the context of a university or private event or be completely raised as a private project. (Explicitly excluded are projects of companies/indie developers that were developed for marketing. In edge cases the decision is up to the jury)

Release Date

You may not have released the game earlier than May 2021. The availability of a download of at least a beta version counts as a release. (A blog or development site does not count as a release yet.)

Publishing

The game as well as videos, screenshots and other material uploaded here will be published through this site and can be viewed by everyone. (The free download of the submitted version of the game must be possible even after the event ended and shouldn't be prevented by any future publications.)

Licensing

All uploaded materials (assets, models, textures) must be usable under an appropriate license. This means you should be allowed to enter the game for a contest and be allowed to publish it. If a contest is commercial or not depends on the asset creator. Ask them if you are unsure.

Age

All team members should be at least 18 years old. Persons under the age of 18 need a written permission of their parents to participate in the award ceremony. (Games whose rating is still pending according to the USK system do not have youth clearance. Accordingly, the award ceremony also has this restriction.)

Jury

The jury reserves the right to reject games: Games that glorify violence, are discriminatory or otherwise unreasonable can be rejected. Games that are not considered hobby projects can also be excluded.
By accepting the terms and conditions you accept the privacy policy. Legal action is excluded.
