NOTE: CONTEST DEADLINE NOW EXTENDED UNTIL DECEMBER 20TH!

Hey LBPC, I'm proud to present the LBPC Roast Contest. The idea here is that as friends and rivals we can compete to make the best levels that roast some of our dearest friends on LBPC. I think this will be some really good fun, both for those in the competition and for those of us that just wish to play these funny levels about our friends...

I wanted to do this right, and so I've set a time period for this contest to about two months. This should allow us to really bring some creativity to these levels. Also, I'm including what I believe to be some really worthwhile prizes, as an incentive for even more of us to join in on this project.

Oh! and don't forget to swing by the promotional level I created just for this competition! Its quite a bit more fashionable than this thread...

Contest Rules:

Level must “roast” a LBPC member or members. “Roasting” is making fun of another person in a well-intentioned manner. For example a level could have a story line that focuses on the roastee, or perhaps be a spoof of one of the roastee’s levels, etc. All entries must be made with good intentions towards the roastee. Levels do not need to be focused towards making fun of a creator, but must at least include humor that is centered around the "Roastee." Malicious levels will not be accepted.


Each entering participant must gain approval from their roastee to be roasted. Roastee must then PM me to grant their approval.




For example, if Morgana wanted to roast Comphermc, she would ask him if she could and then have him send Lockstitch a message saying it was ok via PM.

Level must be published after October 5th and before December 21st, which will be the contest deadline.


Only one entry per person/team.


Level title must Include “LBPC Roast” in title, so that players can find them all at once.


Finally, all rules are subject to possible change depending on unforeseen problems.


Prizes:



The following will be the prizes for those that take the top places in the competition:

1st place: $70 US / 70 pounds UK / 70 Euros Spain in PSN codes

2nd place: $50 US / 50 pounds UK / 50 Euros Spain in PSN codes

3rd place: $20 US / 20 pounds UK / 20 Euros Spain in PSN codes

From what I’ve researched these are the only three types of PSN codes that I can buy online with relative ease. Winner will be able to choose which version they desire. Codes will be sent via PSN message to the winning parties. Please allow one week from announcement of the winners for me to get these codes distributed.

Finally, the top ten levels in the competition will be featured in a small “LBPC Roast Winner Showcase” level that I intend to build, which will ideally key link to all the top ten levels.

Judging:

Judging will be done loosely following the rubric below for a total of 10 possible points per level:

Theme: 1-3 points




3: Creator fully incorporated the roast theme into his/her level
2: Creator has Rostee included in his/her level to a mediocre degree
1: Creator barely included Roastee, rare roasting involved

Creativity: 1-4 points




4: Creator included some aspect never before seen in LBP community
3: Creator made a level that feels fresh, not overdone
2. Creator made a map that is fun but has many ideas copied from other places
1: Creator used many MM items, only used basic ideas

Polish: 1-3 Points





3: Level appears visually as it came out of MM towers
2: Level shows good use of corner editor, no brush cuts are visible
1: Brush cuts obviously visible
I’d like to utilize a team of judges, at least five. So If you’re interested, PM me about it with a short paragraph of why you want to do it/why I should pick you. I’ll probably try to have my helping judges established by November. I'll be trying to select individuals with at least some sort of reputation already established here on LBPC that I believe know how to review a level.

I'm very pumped to see what this competition will bring us, and I hope many of you find this as exciting of an event as I do!

Sounds really fun! Someone can roast me if they'd like! :p

Two quick questions though:
1. Does the roastee have to be in the contest? I'm highly doubting this is the case though.
2. Can one member be roasted by multiple people, or only one?

I can't wait to see this! :D

Roastee does not need to be a participant in the contest. And yes, one member may be "regrilled" by multiple authors.

So, for example, someone could create a level with a tank, (me,) that's getting destroyed or made fun of somehow, in a friendly way?

Sounds very interesting! Great contest.

Hey for the tag LBPC Roast, do you want the level title to be like :
"LBPC Roast" blahblablabla
or like:

?

Hey Lockstitch, interesting contest. I'm going to put some effort into this one! But, I'd like you to clarify your expectations for me. I know that he who partakes in the contest must elicit surreal creativity. But what exactly do you want us to do?? Just to make fun of said roastee? Crack some jokes? Make their errors known?
Or maybe just make them look foolish whilst abstaining from being a cyber-bully? And about the theme- does this all have to go down at some campfire style pig roast (or something or other), or can we set our own little theme for dogging on fellow LBPC members? Specifications, and going into greater depth would be highly appreciated. ~

P.S., I'm fine with anyone roasting me up in crystallized bacon and ghostly ramen. And don't be afraid to hit me up on the old PS Triple!

OK, well I was leaving this one pretty open to the creator. Anything that includes humor directed at or around the roastee will qualify your level for the contest.

Examples I thought of would be to:

A. Create a spoof level of one of their levels.

B. Make a funny storyline about the author somehow

C. Make a level that is inside the head of the roastee, where we can hear their thoughts

D. Make a level centered on a joke about the roastee, like if the roastee is really good at logic, make a level only of logic

But of course these were only some of my ideas, feel free to take it where you will. If you have a questionable idea, just pm me about it first perhaps. And remember, don't be too mean/negative in your roast, its not supposed to be malicious humor...don't hurt any feelings!


Hey for the tag LBPC Roast, do you want the level title to be like :
"LBPC Roast" blahblablabla
or like:
(LBPC Roast) blahblahblah
?

OK, good point. I'd like it to be at the beginning of the title and be exactly "LBPC Roast:"

So if my level title was "Burning Slowly" for example, the entire title would need to be "LBPC Roast: Burning Slowly"

Yeah, I'm fine with multi-roast levels. My main goal here is to get as many quality roast levels made as possible, b/c I think they'll be a blast to play.

Well what to do about locky then :)

mutant_red_peas
11-02-2010, 08:10 PM
Okay...

2 things:

1) I need cutouts of the people I'm roasting but can't find a full-sackbody picture of either of them (yes, there's 2... sorta anyway, 1 poses a side-task) So if someone thinks they know the people I'm roasting (you can easily find out with 2 clicks of the mouse from this page) PM me if you wanna help (also I am doing a rolling credits bit at the end)
2) Running out of thermo, I can use the thermo cheat to a certain extent, but I'd rather have less lag. Could I make a second level that JUST features the last section of the first level and a boss then the credits + end? Not trying to make a series but I need a boss and it would be tough to fit it in without bad lagging even on 1 player. Or...

Are you aloud to leave it on a cliff-hanger?

mutant_red_peas
11-02-2010, 08:15 PM
Oh, wait... I just read back and saw that post...

Okay, I'll have

Part 1: Intro, main bits of platforming, main side task. Cliff hanger.
Part 2: A few platforming sections, boss then end.

You okay with that Lock?

Ok, this contest will be official extended until December 20th deadline for two reasons:

1st, many people have asked me to do this who are entering.
2nd, and quite more important for fair judging: I have become fairly overwhealmed with working as a teacher for my first year and will not have adequate time to properly judge my level entries until my winter break.

I hope all participants understand why I'm doing this, and no one is angry by this change. This will be the final deadline and all other rules will remain the same. If anyone is planning on finishing up a level before the deadline, by all means go ahead and publish it and as they are, I will update the thread will a list of published levels.

Thanks for everyones understanding, Lock.

It features a lot of logic but now I can add EVEN MORE!!!! Sorry for the outburst...

Also you've thrown the competition WIDE OPEN so anyone can win, now with extra time extra people will enter, and quite a few potential winners will join aswell. Before there was 10 places on that special spotlight and there was 1 level. Can't wait to finish mine/play others!
