72H GDC 29th-Aug 1st starts now

Theme suggestions can be given immediately. On July 15, when I announce it, stage 1 voting will begin. On July 22, stage 2 voting will begin. On July 29, at exactly 12:01 PM EST (that’s right after noon), the results of the voting will be announced and the competition will begin. On August 1, at exactly 12:01 PM EST, the competition will be over and no more entries will be accepted.

Good afternoon.
