Intel stupidity

Intel. like everyone, wants a game demo. So we get only people who can build games contributing. Imagine if movies were scripted by directors. Yeah, a few would succeed, most wouldnt.

Surely its time to invite game concept developers to contribute. Yeah, it means judges would have to put a greater effort in - and apply their imagination.

Most games fail because the builders have little ability other than technical. The outcome is obvious - a huge number of pathetic games on the market.

Can we make a demo with FLASH?

I'm a FLASH developer that wants to enter the competition. From what I've seen in the rules, this contest is mostly for C/C++ games, the problem is that I haven't done any game programming in C and because of that whatever I make in Flash will be vastly superior.

My question is this, can I participate with a FLASH game? Will I have the same chance of winning as a C++ game (or at least close) ?

Question about my game entry

I was unable to find anything on the official rules about this, so I'm hoping I can get an official answer here. My company and I are working on a game to eventually sell, but right now it's just a demo. I'd like to submit the game to this competition, but I see that the finalists won't be announced until October. If our demo matures into a full retail game and begins to sell before October, do we become disqualified from the Level Up 2010 Challenge?

Thanks
