Change in game status

What if I submit my game as a demo today, but before the deadline, I release the game? Will that disqualify my demo for the contest?

Right after the contest deadline we go and check if the game is for sale.  Strictly speaking the rules state something along the lines of it cannot be for sale at the time of submission, but I would encourage folks to be on the safe side and just hold off and do a post-June 2 launch date.  If you really can't wait, document clearly when you submit and when you launch in case there's a question.

Mind my asking where you're planning on being for sale?  Launching on your own site? Steam? Other?

Hi,

 I'm planning on releasing my game in two weeks for mobile devices. It is a multi-platform game that makes use of touch screens, so it would be also interesting for a 2 in 1 device. Would releasing it for mobile affect the eligibility for the contest?

Cheers,

Sebastian,

As long as it's not released on PC you're good to go.  Out of curiosity, what platforms/OS's is your mobile version releasing on?

I will release it first on Android (Google Play, Amazon), followed shortly by iOS and later Windows Phone. After that, maybe Humble Store. The game is also in Steam Greenlight, but not gaining too much traction yet.

Cheers,
