May u tell us how many entries u got? :-)
I'll be processing through that data later this morning!
any news? :-D
It's taking a while, but we've got over 180 entries. So far I've gone through about 120 of them and >100 have attached or provided a reasonable way for me to get to their game demo. A small percentage look like entries where people thought it was just submit a game idea or that they had submitted an idea months ago and never took the entry to completion with actual game demo. I'll have finaly numbers soon, but it's a very manual process (no server side script to help me with all of this!).
wow seems to be a huge success this year, congrats!
Thatsounds likea painful process.
Would it be possible to extract the number of entries per each category ? That sounds like a simple query / script, since the category choice was a simple radio button.
The server script that dumped entry data ended up being incomplete - so I've now gotten a complete dump from the webdev team. Of the >180 entries recieved there were 145 game demos. I will openly admit there was a problem with the contest platform but I personally emailed each contestant who had a demo description but didn't have a demo attached. As of midnight tonight I will have given everyone 24 hours to get back to me and will no longer be accepting files from folks whose entry appeared to have a problem.
Some folks emailed me that the "Judges Choice" category selector in the contest platform had problems, so we will ask the judgesto consider all entries they screen for all of the potential judges choice categories (it's their choice after all!).
The categories have demos that break out like this:
Adventure - 32Casual - 25Educational - 5Puzzle - 30Shooter - 28Simulation - 10Strategy - 15
Total - 145
Of the 145 demos, 47 are student entries!
Entries came from all over the world including:

Thank you to everyone who participated in the contest. It has far exceeded our expectations for number of participants. This afternoon I was talking to some of the guys who helped put together the first Intel Level Up contest and one of our them said"we had like 8 submissions". Your participation makes this contest worthwhile!
