Name: Mechanical Curator Contest 1

Description: I'm making a level series with computers in it, and I need a few obstacles.

Make one enemy AND one contraption! Make them Publish it in a level, with the collectibles in it. Don't worry about cheaters stealing it. But (A) If someone collects it, and uses it in their own level, it's a "gift" to the community, and (B) If someone steals your entry and publishes as their own, I'll see which one was published first. Here is what your level should look like:

Title: MCC1 entry, by (Insert PSN Username Here)
Description: I don't care what the description is, but it has to mention that this is an LBPC Contest.

-It must look mutant-robotic, or mutant-mechanical.
-You can use VR Material on only one of them.
-Keep it somewhat small. I intend to make them all collectible. Think about how big of an object you'd like to collect.
-Don't just drop me in a blank level for judging. Give it a nice display. Don't turn it into a level, but at least give it a display case or something.

What Will Be Judged:

-Rating of Decency (100 Points)
-Did you do an Enemy AND a Contraption? (80 Points)
-Does it work? (80 Points)
-How Mutant Mechanical/Robotic is it? (50 Points)
-How small is it? (20 Points)
-How Well Presented Was It? (20 Points)

A maximum of 350 points is up for grabs

What? Is the idea of being FEATURED in a level series not reward enough? Fine. 500 EXP.

All entries are due SEMPTEMBER 5TH at 8:00 PM ET

Good Luck,

You know...
If you need help creating a level you can just ask someone, no need for a contest. :)

It's all in the name of advertising: If people have helped create part of the level series, then they will play it. This will give me more plays, hopefully more hearts, and more author hearts. Of course, there is still the "Projects and Planning" section, the "Level Showcase" section, and the plays i get from people browsing through the community search engine and the "Recently Added" levels. I'm getting tons of plays this way


Plus, I already have three helpers for this series. We have all 10 levels planned out.

It's all in the name of advertising.

Besides, if someone creates part of a level, then of course they want to play it. Even more so if they have absolutely no idea where I used it. This could generate multiple plays from one person. Especially since, in the level design, I put a couple sticker switches :p

Anyway, what am I doing here?!? Off to Ideas and Projects to show my plans to the LittleBigCommunity :p

Stay Cool,
