Act of Youtube: you can opt out of a single rule if you make a video related to your game in any way and publish it before the deadline of the competition (on whatever you like, Youtube is not a must). It could be a gameplay demonstration video, a time lapse of your code's screenshots, a video of your workplace for the game or even a video dancing like a chicken while screeching "hi, my game is good". It needs to be explicit that the video was done for this game (and not just for anything you might had done before).

The rules page has some additional comments
What are your thoughts?

Just read through them. Got a few different ideas I could run with. Hmmm.

I thought the competition didn't start for another hour and a half? Good thing I didn't dawdle on my way home from work.

I, sadly, had to withdraw from the competition. Thankfully it wasn't due to health issues this time, but it was due to my messed up sleep schedule [up all night, sleep part of the day] and my responsibilities to my wife and son whom have been having rough nights. I still plan to work on it and release it at a later time, but there is no way I can make the deadline. I wish everyone the best on their entries.

I too have to back out. Between my work schedule and the 22nd being my birthday I've ended up with about twelve hours of TINS time, most of which I spent figuring out A5 because I put off doing that until the last minute.
