We encourage all GameSalad developers to submit games into the IndieCade competition. You'll find that we've even made a dedicated area on our forums (similar to the TOTB competition category and threads) to discuss IndieCade and your submissions, progress and conversations. In recent months, we have been blown away by the caliber of games being produced by the community and we would love to see GameSalad represented in a festival that celebrates the indie developer.

IndieCade invites independent game artists and designers from around the world to submit interactive media of all types for inclusion in the 2012 Festival. All styles and genres of games are welcome, including PC, browser based, casual, puzzle, mobile, ARG's, serious games, documentary games, art games, activist games, and more. They even encourage games that are a "work in progress," however they must contain at least one finished, playable level.

Submissions are now open. IndieCade will be accepting game submissions January 30th, 2012 through May 1st, 2012. Late submissions are welcome through May 15th for an additional fee.

If you are unfamiliar with IndieCade, visit our GameSalad blog post on the festival and submission process and visit the IndieCade website.

    Does anyone know if its possible to setup one of our apps for test flight... so we can get it beta tested... and possibly entered into this contest...

    Test flight seems to need an ipa...

    Anyone else ever used it...

    @LeonardDeveloper what did you submit? .... what format did you go for?

    @ Stormy

    Of course you can use Testflight :). Publish your GS game as usual, and save it to a location where you can find it. Now make a new folder and name it Payload (this specifically). Put your GS output file into this folder, and zip the folder. Now open folder info, and change .zip to .ipa. And voila, an IPA!

    @LiquidGameworks cool ... cheers .... now last question.. which I'm sure I could read... but if you don't mind obliging me.. is it a adhoc file or full release version that you need to publish from gamesalad....thanks again... just what I'm after
  • LiquidGameworksLiquidGameworks Anchorage, AKPosts: 956
    @Stormy An adhoc. Sorry, that was a key piece of info. :P
  • StormyStudioStormyStudio United KingdomPosts: 3,985
    @LiquidGameworks ...ok.last question..I promise... I've just tried looking on the test flight site but couldn't see the answer... if I'm uploading an Adhoc version to test flight do I have to setup the User Device numbers for each tester in iTunes Connect still ? or perhaps add a special UDID for Test Flight... or none of the above... I'm sure its obvious but can't seem to find the page after a lazy 2 minutes searching..
  • You don't need udid's for each user.....
  • LiquidGameworksLiquidGameworks Anchorage, AKPosts: 956
    @ Stormy ... I can tell you my experience, but I'm not sure if its the correct one. I really apologize for leaving out all the details, being an airhead today. I have found that yes, each device has to be included in the adhoc profile. When you send out invites, users will register and you'll receive their UDid. I then transfer these to iTunes (manually), and reinstall my adhoc profile (prior to publishing with GS).

    if LD knows how to avoid this potentially long step (easy for me with only a few testers), I hope he shares it!
  • I've done it!, there's a tutorial on the test flight website by the way! ;) lemme get the link......

    @StormyStudios

    Yes you need the UDID's setup in your provisioning profile still. When users join your testflight team you will be given access to the UDID's of all devices they have registered. Also if they have many devices test flight gives you a download file you can use to bulk upload the devices to your itunes account. So it takes some of the tedious stuff out.

    Hope that helps

    Cheers

    Thanks guys for the how to 'Test flight' info....

    As way of a thank you (well actually I want you to do it...so its not really much of a thankyou).......If you'd like to beta test my new iPhone 'Audio Invaders' game using Test Flight... http://bit.ly/wkKU2M

    I'll be sure to use it for beta testing my game this week... and also for submitting to this IndieCade Festival ... any coverage would be cool.
  • Ahh this looks fun to bad my laptop is in the shop :( maybe next time
  • @mrgockling - Submissions are welcome through May 15th! You have plenty of time to fix up that laptop!

    loool You are in the worst place to advertise as a whole, and you come here to advertise clothes and accessories!.... You'd assume that after taking the time to make a couple accounts, you'd realize that this is a game development forum.. Ha!
