You are allowed to use customized Sackdoll, Toggle, Oddsock, Swoop or crafted/drawn stuff as characters.

    You had me until rule 8. I like the idea of the players Sackthing being the main character in stories. Rather than having the level author foist a character upon the player.
    I've wanted to do something fitting your theme for ages, but I always wrote it as the players Sackthing interacting with my own cast.

    I'd suggest giving it a shot anyways. It never hurts to try new things! In fact I wanted this contest to make players try stuff outside of their normal comfort zone in LBP.

    Personally I never been much into self insert games and prefer to play games such as Ratchet & Clank and Sly Cooper as a example. I like to see the lives/adventures of fictional characters and for myself to have nothing to do with it... It's kinda one of the main focus of this contest.

    Hahaha, reading your poster has impressed me, you're a fantastic story teller! I can't tell you whether I will participate, maybe first I should unleash the dark side of my personality!

    Heya! I added a summary version of the whole contest to the OP.

    YES and YES! I was actually going to do a project just like this. So what timing.


    1 question. Can the PLAYER be the "good guy" and the villian be the one that chases him. However, the player LOSES in the end (as you have said) and the VILLIAN wins.

    - - - - - - - - - -

    Though I am wary of the 20 minimium contestants. Even the Water Splash SITE contest got only 18 contestants! And that got 4,203 views .


    Judging by the views in community contests, the average is about 400-600. Only the big ones, 1000+ and 2000+

    What I'm just saying is, that I don't want to put all the time and effort into a contest; if it doesn't even end up happening in the first place............


    40+ levels on the Moon...... Only 1 on Earth. Oops.

    The information does cover the fact the Villain main character should be the player controlled character. This was done because the normal results from people often is them wanting to make the main character a hero in stories. Which to me is not people challenging themselves enough to make abnormal main characters...

    But tell you what... I'd advise against it, but I'll somewhat allow your suggestion regardless that it goes little against the theme of the contest. Just keep in mind the farther somebody's project goes away from the true intentions of the contest, the worse my opinion will be of the project... Meaning they'll have to work harder in other ways to impress me then normal.

    I'm not actually sitting around doing nothing, I'm advertising my contest on twitter and more places soon. Believe me I don't want this contest to flop either. I say don't worry about the outcome of the contest to overly much, and make your level something YOU can take pride in and enjoy yourself. The themes of my contest should be used as inspiration for you more then anything... Similar to how LBPC's first LBP2 contest theme inspired one of my game series I work on PC now.

    However I will do my best to see to that this contest happens. A contest with hardly anybody entering it misses the point and isn't very entertaining to me.

    Hmmm, how interesting. I'll have to think about this over a cup of tea.

    I quite like this contest idea and the time frame allowed. Also really enjoy the debate between sack boy or no. I think I ultimately side with the contest creator simply because the sack boy hero /character trope has been done to death in levels. I might enter this one.

    Seems pretty interesting. Looking forward to where this is going!
