Everyone knew about the deadline from day one, and yes, you can do a lot in two months, so I wouldn't postpone it. Would be kind of unfair to people who planned around the deadline posted, but whatever.

More time is always better... A program is never truly finished...

In any case, I don't see why you guys are arguing... I don't think any of the participants would mind seeing the deadline pushed back a bit... Remember all the other coding compos... "this and that isn't implemented because I didn't have enough time" or "I will release a version with more levels later" ; there's always plenty of room for improvement.

Anyway, let's wait for Dr. Neo to decide :S

omg lern to meat a deadline.
We heard you the first time...and the second...and the third....
I'm nowhere near a fully fledged coder and I understand their pain. So much so that I'm not even attempting to enter the competition, deadline or not.
Until you've actually sat down and learned how to code NDS stuff properly, you cannot possibly comment on how long it should take to do anything relating to it.
Clearly, you do not have the capacity for mental thinking beyond that of an 8year old and here's the kicker: 70% of the forum disagrees with you anyway so either make a really great NDS game before the FIRST deadline or shut the hell up.

How exactly can it be unfair? They will only get more time...
If you are saying that you can do a lot in 2 months - so you are not a true coder, or a mega-hyper-super programmer... cause the average game (full game! not some lousy pong...!) takes ~ 3 months

Lira, it all depends on your free time... I you have no job, no studies, and just stay at mom's place coding all day, you could do something really nice in way less time than 3 months :p

Well put it this way. All it really means in the end is that we'll have more, higher quality, stuff and that can't be a bad thing.

   Yeah, I agree. If the deadline is postponed then everyone will get a chance to finish their projects. I think that having higher quality games/apps would be beneficial for everyone. Whats the point of having the compo if most of the people can't even submit?
