What is the November Challenge?
This event is made to give you the motivation to release and market a game (or any game related product) during the month of November. In order to win it, the goal is to make $1 out of it! The aim is to use - and hopefully improve - your release and marketing skills, and hopefully give you the pride of making 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.
What qualifies as a win?
The goal is to make money off of your product and learn about the release and marketing process. 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.
How does the community participate?
People are encouraged to give feedback on each other's products. Even if you didn't buy someone's product, you can still give them feedback on their marketing efforts!
Do I have to start the project in November?
You can complete an old project or start a completely new one! The only requirement is that the project is released during the month of November. You don't have to earn the money in November either, winning later is still winning.
When is the November Challenge?
As the name implies, it's during the month of November. (Nov. 1st 7PM UTC to Dec. 1st 7PM UTC) The 1st November Challenge will be held this November and hosted by me!
