    Well the submission deadline is coming up very soon (Sept. 1st) and a have a couple of questions.

    My game isn't done yet, but it will probably be complete 3-4 weeks after the deadline passes. Is it possible to send updated versions of your game at later dates or do they only judge the version you submit on Sept. 1st?

    Thanks for any insight!

    Last year, they allowed entrants to update their entries several weeks after the submission deadline, but the version you submit initially has to be more or less complete and reasonably stable (i.e., better than beta). If the unimplemented features aren't central to the game, you can probably get away with adding them in your post-submission update. However, I seem to recall that the judges weren't required to check out the updated version (though I could be wrong about that).

    As Paul said, they had a second deadline for the finalists. They were actually several months apart. I can't say from my logs if all judges updated, but many of them did, so keep on developing after you submit. And good luck! :)
