Well… OK. But I hope this doesn't mean the Crude Graphics Jam gets neglected!

No, no, it won' t be neglected :-D
The Crude Graphics Jam is still up and running. This one is only a marathon that will happen every three months ( which I guess is a good amount of time ) that will have different themes ( kinda like Ludum Dare but a bit crazier ).

can I submit a game already in progress

I got a game started ages ago, and was planning to finish making it this week. Somehow, it fits the theme perfectly, and it certainly qualifies as a train wreck. Can I submit it for this jam?

I have a question, does the plot have to be present in-game or can I just shove that in the description? I was supposed to make a game for this event but instead I accidentally just made a small space arcade shooter thing-y, and completely forgot about putting the story in the game.

It seems like I can

It seems like I can duplicate the characters, but I don't want to. I'm sure I can trick the game into doing what I want though someway.

Well, it's me again, i know

Well, it's me again, i know i still miss ya, since i've heard of this theme yesterday i was working on a game for this event (and for sarcasm i had to rip-off Ikiki's style), but i hope i could finish it soon and i want to be sure this won't end early...can it be extended? Because i don't know if i may stop in a sudden.

I just found out that this event ends at night in the 6th April, please extend it because i just began working on the entry yesterday night and i haven't finished it due to lots of testing of the Box2d movement (i got a CF2.5 crack no kill me please)

Well, screw this.

Well, screw this.

Personally, I think there's no good reason to let nuuup not replying yet stop you from making a game for this. I assume everythingstaken is still working on an entry, and when it gets posted here it will get treated essentially the same as if it had been posted before the event officially ended. The deadline is only in your mind!

;-)

And you know that's exactly what I'm doing.
