What is 9leap.net?

9leap.net is a site used for receiving, displaying, and judging entries to game programming contests, and is at the same time a game sharing site for both posting games you have made for yourself and freely playing games others have submitted. Those 26 or older, or college students onward are free to upload games to the site, but we ask that all applicants to game contests double-check their eligibility prior to submission. Winners will be asked to provide proof of birth date or student status.

Before Submitting

利用規約・投稿規約FAQshould be read thoroughly before submitting games.
