When you send a game to review, be sure you don't have anything else to change about it. If it becomes eligible for publishing, the url address will become unavailable for other games you'll have.
While on review, these are the reasons that may prevent us from validating your game:
- Irrelevant title, keywords or description.
- Description in other languages than English.
- Any kind of spamming.
- Any kind of copyright infringement.
- Inappropriate texts or codes.
- Simplicity (for example, tests with only one object to find in order to end the game).
- Having another main challenge than having to get out of a room.
- Objects being used as something completely different for no believable reason.
- Objects floating around or being displayed without logic and context.
- Having a view change too much after a click on something.
- Mouse cursor changing when hovering something but no visual feedback after a click.
- Bugs like when you click on some object and it keeps being added to the inventory on every click.
- Weird library items being added to the inventory during the game (a hole or a darkness effect, for example).
- General bugs that may prevent players from ending the game.
- No ending.
Also, avoid having items to be added to the inventory during your game if these items are not going to be really useful. This may only confuse players.
Besides that, please note that even if you publish your game after our review, we reserve the right to unpublish it at any time if one of the conditions above is not respected.
