    Default Storyboard Showdown! (#1 - The Fall of LBP) **WINNERS ANNOUNCED!**



    Welcome to the first Storyboard Showdown!

    Storyboard Showdown? What's that?

    In these contests, the goal is to make a 'storyboard' that animates a series of events. For good examples of this, take a look at jeffcu's ZEN or the launch scene from Taffey's The Right Stuffing. You shape and animate and create a cut scene for your level. Each contest will have a theme which must be followed - and some might have special requirements. Just create your take on the theme, and make it look good. Ready?

    Storyboard Showdown #1 - The Fall of Little Big Planet!

    The Theme
    I'm not gonna give you an easy one to start with, and the ante's been upped. You'll be fighting for a shot to be featured in "The Great Labyrinth"!

    Your mission (and you really ought to accept it) is to make a storyboard detailing the events leading up to The Great Labyrinth. For more details on this epic project see this thread. Be sure to hit these points:
    1.The level appears.
    2. Many try to beat it, but can't escape.
    3. The game is hacked - even Cambridge can't stop it!
    4. A rescue team is assembled at LBPC, but they are lost too.
    5. LBP falls into disarray.
    6. The Creator Curators hold a meeting to decide what to do.
    Then be sure to have the cut scene release the player - there will be more to the level!

    Entering the Contest
    That's easy - just publish your level and let us know at the thread. We'll judge it.

    Judges
    1. "B times 3 = Me" BlueBulletBill
    (There won't be any other judges for this competition, I want all of the best to participate. My project's on the line. )

    Rules
    1. One entry per person! No exceptions!
    2. You cannot win two Storyboard Showdowns in a row.
    3. Judges cannot participate in the contest.
    4. You may not use any DLC that has not been released for PSP. (No Creator's Edition materials!) However, you may use purchased DLC.
    5. Once your level is published, no editing! I'll know...
    6. Read the disclaimer. or you'll be sent to your room with no supper! And I'll take your PSP too, young mister!

    The Disclaimer
    By entering this contest, you agree to participate with respect to your competitors. Remember, it's just a game. That means no whining if you lose, no *excessive* bragging if you win, and no attempting to bribe the judge. (I take PayPal and DLC codes. ) If you win, you will be expected to make your storyboard copyable, to be used in The Great Labyrinth. If you suddenly decide you won't let me use it, I'm sure the 2nd place winner will. And he won't be to shy about taking the prize either. And lastly, I've never used VBExp before, so I don't know if I can pay as soon as the system releases. I promise to pay up ASAP and will keep a tally.

    The Prizes!
    1st: 250 VBExp and a feature in "The Great Labyrinth". Plus, you'll get to judge in the next contest. Lucky you!
    2nd: 150 VBExp
    3rd: 75 VBExp

    The Deadline
    All entries must be published and announced (posted here) by 4:00, Monday, April 12th. Eastern Time. Why 4? I'm home from school about then, and my rents aren't. So no matter what state of punishment I'm in, I'll be free to post.

    Thanks
    Thanks to jeffcu for the awesome banner!

    Good luck to all participants!

    Well, judging took quite some time with all the entries I had to choose from.

    (Sarcasm detector explodes)

    But, as you can guess, we have a winner! Congrats to CyberSora and his excellent storyboard! You'll receive a fantastical 250 Exp when the system is back up, and a feature in the upcoming community project The Great Labyrinth. But, as a tragically deceased pitchman would have said, there's still more! You'll also get to judge the next Storyboard Showdown! Lucky you!

    Now, while there may be only one grand prize winner, I still need to give a shout out to Taffey, who pulled away from LBP and making ridiculously funny analogies long enough to submit an entry! You'll be receiving the runners-up prize of 150 Exp.

    Thanks to our two participants, and jeff again for the banner!

    That'll be a tricky storyboard - but I like a good challenge! Great idea for a contest B3.

    Question for you: Is the storyboard required to be 100% passive from #1 through to #6, or is it possible to have part of the storyboard be active?

    For example, the say there's a dedicated intro sequence that covers #1-#4. Then the player is released and dropped into a wasteland (#5) where they are free to move. After a very short bit of platforming they encounter the creator curator scene (#6) and then the level continues from there.

    Does my question make sense?

    Yes! That'll be great! But, to be fair, I don't think I should judge on the platforming section.

    Storyboard interrupts allowed!

  6. Thanks!

    I'm glad that two pros are responding already... I was so scared everyone was gonna be like "What, a contest by that noob who didn't back up his save? Wait, look, a new caption contest!!!1!!!" and my contest would fall into the treacherous depository known as a forgotten forum.

    Can't wait to see what you guys make!

    Oh, and may I ask what the Labyrinth will look like. That way if it's a creepy thing, I won't make a sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows thing.

    The general feel of the Labrinth will be based on which forgotten level the stage is based on. But the storyboard, as it details what's happening on LBP outside, should be appropriate to each stage of the story. Therefore if you think an apocalyptic LBP would still look happy, do that for number 5. It's really about how you envision the events happening.

    Hello creators! You've got two weeks from today till deadline, so keep up the good work. And if you haven't started yet, well, get trucking!
    On the other hand, jeffcu made an awesome banner for this contest, check it out at the top! You bet I've got some ideas from this western theme coming, so be on lookout!

  15. Thanks!

    The reason I'm not goining this contest is because I only want to help create using contraptions, not full levels.

    Eek! I should probably think about getting started, shouldn't I?

    Where has the time gone? Curse you, succulent community levels, for fast-forwarding the space/time continuum!

    Great banner by the way.

    Hey BlueBullet, I know this is an odd question to ask, but can I make the level an Introduction level instead of a short-introduction-and-then-gameplay level?

    Sorry for the bump, but you still didn't answer my question... ya. :/

    Anyhoo. I finally published a test run of this level. It's called "The Great Labirynth: Introduction (Sneak Peak)". I hope you like it, because it was a pain in the... buttocks.
