@wietze, @505:

Indeed I am very much looking forward to seeing your demo, as the 2nd place DHS demo was quite nice, I want to see the demo that beat it! :)

Just to be clear - I am not criticizing your demo or the delay thereof since I don't have any info on it, and as you said since you cleared the whole thing with the Sommarhack organizers, there's surely no issue.

So let's bring this discussion to general terms, not specifically about your demo, but about the release/no release after compos in general.
My personal opinion is that it can be OK with a delay to fix compatibility issues/bugs.
I am a bit more hesitant to cases where a more or less unfinished demo competed, and then there is more work done (graphics touched up, transitions added, maybe whole new parts put in etc.) before it is released.
Then you end up with a kind of strange revisionists history. Say for example Demo A won at a party, Demo B came second. Demo A is released right away, but demo B doesn't get released, instead a final version appears some months later, with lots of tweaks, some extra parts added in etc.
To someone looking at the demos then they can go "Why did Demo A win? Demo B was clearly better, guess group A had a lot of friends on the party voting for them!"
When, in fact the demo that actually competed was perhaps not as good. In those cases, I'd prefer to have the party version released right away, and then a 100% version can appear later on.
