D. Upload a copy of your game to an accessible location (a secured FTP is preferred) or mail a physical copy to our offices. Email these instructions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Keep in mind we are specifically looking for fun factor and a great gameplay experience. Yes, art, audio and stunning visuals can certainly affect the experience, but we aren't dishing out individual awards for those categories.
Those selected to be in The PAX Aus Indie Showcase will be notified via email by July 31st, 2017.
By submitting your game for consideration as an individual or company, you must agree to the following rules and regulations.
A. The PAX Aus Indie Showcase was created for independent games, so if it is discovered you do not meet the requirements you will be automatically disqualified and we will totally be keeping your $50.
B. What you submit as far as intellectual property and/or copyright must be owned by you or the company you are submitting for. By submitting the game you're not infringing on any other intellectual property owners.
C. If you are submitting for a company, you must be authorized to do so. No going to the team the day before PAX and yelling surprise!
D. You understand the decisions made by the judges are final. No whining. No complaining. No crying. No appeals. No calling in favors.
E. You agree that it's okay for PAX and PAX organizers to use screenshots, videos, your names, pictures and other assets from your submitted game for marketing purposes.
F. You agree to hold PAX and PAX organizers harmless from any damages or expenses of any kind which arise or are somehow connected with PAX or The PAX Aus Indie Showcase.
G. PAX and PAX organizers can cancel or revoke your submission or PAX Aus Indie Showcase status at any time for any reason whatsoever. Although we are not cruel and unreasonable people, we have to say this so developer X doesn't go sue-crazy on us if we pull their game after they are caught beating up old ladies the week before PAX Aus.

If chosen to be in The PAX Aus Indie Showcase, you or a representative must be able to demo the game live at PAX Aus 2017, October 27th - 29th in Melbourne, Victoria during all open exhibition hours.
