This was an incredible challenge. One of the best yet. What a palette!

Too bad I've been too busy to enter

Why my work the third day who hasn't checked up?

 Okay then, slideshow-style stills of the same level it is! :)

Cure, i think this weird fella doesn't know how to upload an entry for the contest. And he's asking how to.

@Mrmo - Being that it says yes to animation, that should be fine to either scroll it or have still fames of different parts of the level. So long as it is just one level.

that sentence doesn't communicate anything in english.

Whether it is possible to send some works on competition that???

 Okay, here's a question- can I make the 'single screen' scroll?

I'd like NOT to show it all at once, as I think it looks better when constrained to a smaller frame (say, GBC-sized), but there's no way I could fit everything I made into those dimensions without, well, scrolling.

(I assume a slideshow-thingy such as this is out of the question)

If I did one this week, my level would be hard to tell there was lava there except if you were a 4 year old, as well as a survivor of the climbing championship game known as "The Floor is Lava!"

I have a great idea. Let's hope no one else does it

I have an idea - and you'll never see it coming. (well, proverbially speaking that is, it will be submitted ofcourse) 


user

Might get something up, i have a few ideas :3

my bad

 It does say a 'new, original game' which should exclude any such stuff ;/


user

 Maybe people who participated in the underwater level challenge should make a screen from the same mockup game.


user

 Fawful, do you have a really light background? The white one might not show. It's one image, so  Right click/copy on one you can see and paste it into your prog with a mid grey background. They should all be there. (assuming you haven't already, not trying to be condescending here)

user
Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 6/27/2011 06:00

 Erm, I see 12 colours there :)


user
fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 6/27/2011 05:17

maximum twelve colours

must be one of these

only eleven colours there

okay, I probably would have been too lazy too do more than a single screen anyways, but Ive started working on mine.


user
skamocore (Level 11 CEO) @ 6/27/2011 00:30

@r1k - Let's just stick to a single screen. After all, we're only talking about one level within a larger hypothetical game (which may include other types of levels, not just a lava level). There's no need for something like a title screen, since the title screen probably wouldn't be a part of the level that includes lava.

Anyway, I've edited the article to reflect this.


user
Mrmo Tarius (Level 10 Master Sniper) @ 6/27/2011 00:22

 This can be done with a tileset. I'm into tilesets right now. Yes.


user
r1k (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/27/2011 00:14

cool, I might do this one.

can our submission include multiple screens, like a gameplay screen and title page, or just one screen?

Sweet, this is going to be fun!
