That is just wonderful, I love the idea of a software competition.
I have a work in progress. Although I'm writing a clone of a magazine released software...("Worm of Bemer"), I'm also, at the same time fundamentally changing and extending the game for an additional release ("Snake of Bemer"). So I think that would qualify under "a) further development of an already released program, if the program is essentially extended or changed"
I think I'll be OK, since it's 100% rewritten in my own code with all new graphics. However, I guess based on the rule that stipulates "existing brand names / titles are changed" that I'd be safer not to call it Snake of Bemer? Just Frake the Snake, I guess.....
Wow, I'm already dreaming of coming in 9th or 10th place...should I code today, or work on my acceptance speech...haha....lol
I'm kidding folks, but this is awesome, I love this contest, I sure I hope I can finish in time to make a submissions, this is really motivating.
