Prizes Explained and How it Works Sticky

Each rating criteria will finish with a 'rank' placement based on an average score determined by itch.io, calculated by the votes for that category. For each game ranked in a #1 position for a rating category will be rewarded first place for that category and win the prize. 

So a game 'ranked' #1 in the 'Story/Narrative' category will win 'Best Story' and the prize stated.

Example:

"Best Story"  ( Up to the value of £3 to use on Humble Bundle) Rewarded to the game ranked #1 in the 'Story/Narrative' category.

The 'Prize' is cash value of 'Up to' (in this example)  £3, where the winner can select a game from the  Humble Bundle Website  up to the value of £3. If a game is less then £3, then there is no 'change' or cash value carried over., hence 'Up to' the value of £3. Consider how a voucher would work. :)

Each 'prize' will be treated as one transaction

To claim your 'Prize', you can contact me or me you, letting me know what you would like by providing a link to the game you want. I will then purchase the game as a 'Gift' and email it to you for you to claim from the Humble Bundle website. (you will need to follow the humble bundle email i send you for instructions on how to redeem.)

'Prizes' are awarded per game, not per person. So those working in a team environment will need to share the prize/s.

Questions.

Q: The game i would like is over the value of the prize won. can i just pay the difference. 

A: No, Sorry, i have to do this in a one transaction basis.

Q: The game i want is only  £1.50, can i get two games for £1.50?

A: Yes, the prize value is 'Up to' the amount specified. You can select more than one game providing it is within the 'Prize' cash value and is only one transaction.

Q: So, if i have won more than one category, I can combine the cash values altogether? like £3 for the 'Best Story' category and £3 for 'Second place'.?

A: Yes, but it can only be one transaction, and any cash value remaining will not carry over. so if you have won two 'prizes' and decide to combine them for a game that is £4.30 as an example, £1.70 will NOT be carried over or remain as a 'balance'. The 'prizes' have been claimed.

Q: OK, So what if I have been a lucky bugger and won three or more 'Prizes', can i combine two 'Prizes' cash values and still use the third cash value for something else?

A: Well, check you out eh. Yes you can, let me explain this a bit better if i can. I can only do one transaction for each 'Prize' won. Combining two 'prizes' cash values to get one game will count as one transaction, but two 'prizes' claimed, with no remaining balance(should there be any) carried over. If you have another 'prize' cash value still to claim then you can still claim that too.

Q: Do i have to use the Humble Bundle Website?

A: Yes.

Q: is there any way i could just have the cash valued paid to me into 'Paypal', and i'l do it myself?

A: NO!

Q: Can i get a bundle from the Humble Bundle store?

A: Sure, if there is something there that you like and you have the 'prize' value for it. You could even use the store itself, or both if you have two 'Prizes' to claim, remember one 'prize' means one transaction, you could get a bundle with one 'prize', and a game from the store with another 'prize'

Q: Can I choose the charity?

A: Of coarse, if you have a preference then let me know in the email, or I'l just pick one.

Q: There is nothing on Humble bundle Website i want right now, how long do i get to claim my 'Prize/s'?

A: You have until Saturday 31st August 2019 to claim your 'Prize/s', after that time, i will no longer be available, and have quit my hosting duties. 

Q: Something went wrong on the Humble Bundle Website and I can't activate/work my game, what shall I do?

A: Anything regarding Humble Bundle Website and it's games will need to be dealt with by Humble Bundle themselves, once I have sent the email to you, be sure to follow any instructions carefully. I will help where i can, but generally speaking, once i have confirmed, purchased an sent the 'redeeming' email to you, then it's out of my hands.

Hopefully this answers most of the questions you maybe thinking about, if not, then drop a message and I will answer as quickly and as best I can. :)
