it's VERY feedback- and collaboration-oriented, with group assignments. It also isn't locked to a "end" date--one can get "badges" for completing a game at any number of time stages, up to a year (I don't like this notion for IGDC, by the way). And it's very, VERY much about finishing a game, not "winning," like Nanowrimo. I think we might want to re-evaluate the IGDC after this next one in 2010 (earliest it's likely to be complete, it being November already).

Maybe we should be less like a science fair, and more like the academy awards? Instead of "here's the submit window", rather go with "anything that came out in the last year is up for consideration".
