In my most sincere belief in the benevolence of our mods, I mustered up enough courage to post this directly into the contest thread. If this is a problem, feel free to move it anywhere (but please don't).
Here comes what everyone has been eagerly anticipating, and what you may have been discussing in hushed voices huddling in the dusty corners of this board. Selling it to strangers in a public lavatory. Or going on and on about it in front of your girlfriend. She so doesn't care. But no worries! We do!
We want to see you create an epic Boss Battle for a game you always dreamed of as a child (or a game you are dreaming of right now... but no, not that one idea for that
Contest: Boss Battle
The scene should contain a Boss and a Hero, maybe fighting, maybe doing something else, be creative. Points will be awarded for creativity. And of course for execution.
To go along with the spirit of creativity, a ton of bullshit will be tolerated- digital art, traditional art, pixel art, lego stop motion, sock puppets, the attack of the massive origami swan, you name it, cosplay for seductive enchantresses is highly encouraged (so, you see, it could be that
idea for a game after all).
Maximum of 3
submissions. Only one
may appear in the top 3.
You may start right now! More importantly though, you should deliver the finished product by September 20th
(2014 duh), because that sounded like just about the right amount of time. Post your art into the submission thread I will cook up later (m******f*****g son of a b*** the thread totally exists now: Right Here. It' not a trap. I promise
. Any other chit chat may go here.
You may post a WIP thread in the Critique forum.
You can win a fabulous First Prize. It's no less than a Beta Access Abyssian Tier

Apart from that, the first three places will receive a shiny badge.
One special badge
- 1st place
- 2nd place
- 3rd place
Of course, as contests go, you will have to do something. Alternatively you may not, but then your chances fade compared to those who will actually do something. So do something.
But before that, we will need a system for choosing the one who deserves the amazing prize. A board of judges would be the best thing.
When he's not making his own games, he's probably doing something else. He's everyone's favorite ginger: Muzz
Doubling as our emergency contest nurse, he apparently slices up things when it's dark, but don't worry, he knows what he's doing, he's a doctor, he's: DarkReaver
For a change of pace, she's a quest designer at Pixel Federation, blogger and an overall urban elf, she's: Iluviel
And to turn the valves on the masses, to allow the voice of the public be heard, the fourth judge is: You
Each judge will pick what they consider the top three submissions. The first placed submission will receive 3 points, the second 2 and the third submission will receive 1 point. There will be also a public poll where you can pick your top contestant. The submission with the most votes will receive 3 points, the second will receive 2 and the third 1 point.
The submission with the most points from both the jury and the public poll will be pronounced winner.
