Ludum Dare is great, except it's only 48-72 hours (depending on your flavour). Is there any particular (good) competition that gives you 1-2 weeks to develop? I don't usually get enough time to put significant effort in 2-3 days.

Edit: I'm using .NET. It must be open to .NET (Silverlight, preferably) games.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Nope, using .NET. Experimental Gameplay is probably the one you wanted. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ No, I think I was thinking of the Ludum Jam one. Meh, I was sure of a week long thing. \$\endgroup\$ Jun 15, 2011 at 17:17

Two major ones I know of are the Seven Day Roguelike Competition and Pyweek.

The Something Awful Forums also has a month long gamedev competition, starting in July. You can form teams, but you or someone on your team has to have an account there.

The Experimental Gameplay Project also has month long competitions where you're only allowed to spend a week on development. Each month there's a different theme.

TIGSource forums also occasionally do month long competitions, though they seem to happen somewhat rarely.
