I’m attending school in NYS but am not from here. Can I register?
Absolutely. We are allowing any students who are attending NYS Universities to register.
What if I have more than 5 team members?
In this situation you can register 5 members and then, if you’re a finalist, “hire” the remaining members. Just be sure to list it in your business plan including how much you’d pay them.
Some of my team members don’t live in NYS. Can I still apply?
This question can be answered like the above one. Register all team members that live in NYS. If you are picked as a finalist, you can “hire” the other team members. Again, be sure to list it in your business plan.
Are board games allowed?
We are only allowing digital games for this competition.
I made a small game for a game jam and posted it only for “pay what you want”. I want to revisit this and make it in to a full game. Can I enter this game?
As long as you plan to make it in to a full commercial release, then yes!
I’m making a VR/AR/emerging tech game. Anything special I need to submit?
If you are using any VR, AR, or emerging tech, please submit a gameplay video. We have a large panel of judges and they may not all have access to the various hardware. You still need to submit either a Windows build or an iOS/Android build as well.
