I have been asked to push back the deadline and extend the competition running time. Indeed I do have the impression that the contestants need more time for their projects. I am thinking about two more months which would extend the total runtime of the competition to half a year.

Please let me know through this poll whether the deadline should be pushed back or not and how much more time you would like it to run.

I would say yes, but be clear that this is a one time thing and after the additional two months it will really be over.

Two months sounds about right. I agree with TheForce81, as well.

Although many people get some time off from work/school at this time of year, most would probably prefer to spend it having fun with family and friends.

Agreed. Its Christmas, everyone deserves a break and a few beers and mince pies.

The time frame was bad for me from the beginning. I was able to invest a couple of weeks into my project by now and I'm sure I could put together a demo till the end of the year. However, I might be able to make it more of a game with more time.

If it gives people more time to actually make their games better... I'm all for it. Hopefully this doesn't just mean that everyone gets two months off before crunch time again. ;)

In the (partially remembered) words of Miyamoto, a good game is only delayed for a short time. A rushed (and bad) game is rushed forever.

I think extending the time limit is a good idea.

Hah, that was exactly my plan. I just got the Wind Waker remake and need some time for that.

I'm not sure even two months will be enough time for me but it will definitely help.
