Hi,Our game is a RPG-strategy hybrid, how should we deicide what caterory to choose in the submission form? If we decide it's more of a strategy game and judges will percive it as a RPG would we loose the chance to win the Strategy Category award?Thanks
We want to know what motivates developers to do what they do. We asked this of our judges and here's what they had to say:
What gets you out of bed in morning?
Can I use Direct3D 11 with Direct3D 9/10 feature levels?If I'm not mistaken, Windows 7 comes with Direct3D 11 out of the box, but only 10.1 and 9 are allowed in official rules.
The game that I'm working on uses Java with the LWJGL for rendering (http://www.lwjgl.org/) and I noticed that the rules do not specify anything about Java. Since the test machine is a Windows machine, will I need to bundle a JVM with the submission or will there be one installed on the PC already?
Thanks in advance!
I want to submit a demo for the contest LevelUp 2011 and I want to know if I am
permitted to use the PhysX SDK from NVidia as part of my demo.
Can I participate with the demo in the section Best Simulation
game, for the prize Best Use of Game Physics?
I know it may be a bit late (o.k maybe a lot late) but I am still considering participating in this. I do have a question for you though! Looking at the past winners it seemed most of those games were built on a custom engine. It seems the focus of that competition was more technical. The winners focued on engine features (anti aliasing, battery meters in game, performance, graphics scaling, stuff like that) rather than innovative gameplay. I myself do not enjoy making engines.
I was wondering , isn't it a little odd that the contestant has to select the "*Judges Choice Skills / Craft Categories" option ?
Maybe it wasn't intended ? Because on top of the form there is a label saying :
It seems the submit entry website has some serious issues whenloading here in China:
Dear Mitch, could you help me to check for my entry and see if everything is filled out correctly? When I try to check on my entry both the logo is not uploaded and the text is completly without any breaks. If so can you help me to change it?
I've looked at the official rules and this part got my attention :

Hi Intel team!
Thanks for opening this contest another year.
I have a question:
Technically, I'm a student (last year accountancy), while I learned C++ self taught.
Does this mean I have to compete in the Student category? Or can I go after the Independent/Professional category? (I'd prefer to chose the latter)
Thanks in advance.
Edit: Also I see the "entry description" field removes all text formatting after I hit "preview". Is this normal? Is this field supposed to be short or long? Thanks
