SeedComp! (2023) is separated into 2 distinct rounds: Planting and Sprouting. You can take part in either or both.
The first round runs from Dec 7th, 2022 to Jan 7th, 2023, the second from Jan 9th, 2023 to March 1st, 2023.
All indicated deadlines are set to midnight UTC -10/HST time. (Don’t worry, itch.io translates it to your local time automatically.)
Round 1: Planting (Sign up HERE!)
During the 1st Round, Planting, you are invited to submit 'seeds' into the competition. These seeds can be absolutely anything, from game introductions, pieces of art, blurbs, design documents, puzzles, poems, characters, I7 extensions, settings, feelies, or even code!
You can submit:
If your seed is not selected during this edition of the SeedComp!, you may choose to keep it in the seedbank and make it available for future editions until it is used.
Round 2: Sprouting (Sign up HERE!)
During the 2nd Round, Sprouting, you may declare your intent to nurture one or more seeds into an interactive fiction entry of your own design.
Discussion of seeds is encouraged in both our Discord and the Community Tab.
You can also opt out of receiving awards on your own when submitting. Organizers may submit entries but are not eligible to receive awards (they can accept stickers if so inclined).
We encourage you to provide a downloadable copy of your entry on your game page, for accessibility purposes.
Possible Software to create Interactive Fiction:
Playing and Voting for Awards
All Sprouting entries will be made available to play shortly after Round 2 ends.
Unless opted-out, every entry is eligible for Awards. Awards are titles set by the organizers (such as Best Overall, Best UI, Best Puzzle, etc...).
However, every entry can also be nominated for Stickers, which are unique awards submitted by voters for a specific entries (often fun or silly, i.e. Evilest Cat, Most Unexpected Kitchen Appliance Fatality, Least Helpful Tour Guide, etc...).
Note: All stickers will be screened by the organizers for trolling/abuse.
Separate awards will also be awarded to the seeds themselves, such as Most signed-up Seed, or Most Finished Entries for a Seed, etc...
You will be able to vote for Awards and submit Stickers starting March 2nd/3rd, 2023 until March 31st, 2023 through this form [LINK TBA].
The results will be released early April of 2023.
