Going On Vacation, may not be able to enter the contest...

Sooooo...I want to enter the contest, but I'm going on vacation to Nashville, TN and Lexinton, KY around Mid-November for about three to four days.

I don't have a laptop, so I won't be able to work on my game while on Vacation, but I do have an old Nexus 10 Tablet Device that I can use for things like notes, quick sketches, and jotting down ideas.

Should I wait until next year? Or will I have enough time to work when I get back home?

you could enter/finish a game for the contest even with the vacation  , it all depends on planning. Maybe save the more in depth writing for vacation or whatever you can do on your tablet and work on mechanics/resources before the trip. 

I.e. say ur making a shopkeeper game with a crafting mechanic. Before your trip you do some basic planning, iron out how the crafting/selling system will work and create/find the sprites for the various items/characters you know will be in the game. Then on your trip, you write/plan out the story and quests. Then after your trip, put it all together. 

It all depends on your time management/ planning skills. Good Luck!

Don't worry, your fine. ;)

You have 4 weeks when you come back.

Thanks for the Advice. The thing is, I won't have access to my computer when away, So...I won't be able to do any development stuff while away.

Anyway, I'll see if I can figure something out.

Thanks again.

well you will have your tablet, u can always write on that or just in a notebook if you have to. Either way, you should still have enough time even if you get nothing done in those 4 days

I ran into this problem last year. I was 2000 miles away from my computer when the contest was announced/started and would be for another two weeks. I just did as much planning and resource hunting as possible on my phone during my downtime while I was gone then busted my ass when I got home to build it. It can be done! I have faith in you!
