Congratulations to the authors of finished (and unfinished) Challenge entries! It can take some courage to finally brand your game as commercial and put a price tag on it. We hope this event helped some of you jump this hurdle.

Feedback week

We now have one week reserved to gather some feedback on the submissions. Everyone is invited to comment on:

  • The product itself (game quality) ;
  • The store presentation / marketing / pricing aspects.

I'll be leaving submissions open during the next week for any late entry.

Challenge winners

Any entry that made money is considered a winner! Let me know when you win to be added to this list. You also earn the right to use this badge anywhere you see fit :)

What is the November Challenge?


This event is meant to get you motivated for releasing and marketing a game (or any game related product) during the month of November. If you release your project and eventually earn $1, you win! The aim is to use - and hopefully improve - your release and marketing skills, and hopefully give you the pride of making some money off of something you made.


What can my product be?

Your product can be a game or anything game related. This includes tools, assets, etc… And it can be a project you have already worked on, like a prior game jam entry that just lacks some polish and contents for release.

Do I have to start the project in November?

No. You can complete an old project or start a completely new one! The only objective is to release during the month of November. You don't have to earn the money in November either, winning later is still winning.

What qualifies as a win?

The amount of money earned is somewhat arbitrary, but if you want to set an amount, you can use 1 unit of your local currency. The goal is really just to learn about the release and marketing process, and ideally make some money off of your product.

How does the community participate?

People are encouraged to give feedback on each other's products. If your releases have an upfront price, we suggest exchanging keys between entrants instead over at Discord. Even if you didn't get someone's product, you can still give them feedback on their marketing efforts!

When is the November Challenge?

As the name implies, it's during the whole month of November. You have until the end of the month to submit your project here. Then when the month ends:

  1. The first week of December will be dedicated to exchanging feedback on each other's releases
  2. The winners will be invited to report back to be added on the Winner List :D
