It's time to decide which of the Alternate Realities is the best. Play through the entries, then rate them using the poll.

Voting Rules:

1. If you have an entry, and you're voting, give your entry a rating of 10.
2. Hide all comments about entries until voting is over. This includes text reviews, Let's Plays, podcasts, etc.
3. Have fun playing the entries!

(entries in next post because you can't attach files to a poll)

Just so people don't waste time, my entry (First Level), is not conquerable in the form I gave to hyperme. Not sure what happened. You can do most of the hold, I'm fairly sure, but you'll get towards the end and a certain room becomes impassable.

It'll be pretty obvious when it happens.

I'm sorry. :(

Is reporting a bit of a break in one of the entries okay here? I found such a case a bit ago.

Also, I'll admit to having implemented an Arky-style room in my entry at one point involving a mimic before deciding to discard the room for something more reasonable.

You may if you like, assuming the contest boss doesn't object, but they're quite common in contest entries with less testing than usual hold. Might be best saved for the post-contest hold fixing and submission where the architect would most appreciate it, though.

Alright, voting is closed, so here is a playlist of all my video comments. No explicit scores are given but it's probably pretty clear what my relative rankings are. Entries are played in order from left to right.

Thanks everyone for making such fun holds! :)

And the voting is over!

Congradulations to our winner, Rabscuttle, with his level Staffing Problems. They get 100 Rank Points, and their pick from the elusive and wonderous Prize Pile.

Thumbs up to Professor Tio, our second place winner, with their level Rusted Out. They win 50 Rank Points. Plus another ten, for taking part in their first contest.

Good job to mauvebutterfly in third place, with their level King Dugan's Service Staircase. They get 25 Rank Points.

Please clap for the rest of our entrants, who all worked hard to provide us with these great levels. They may not win an official prize, but they all have the reward of a job well done.

Of course, Delpolo gets ten Rank Points for taking part in their first contest.

Look out for an actual contest compilation soon! (Please notify me if you don't want your level compiled in a compilation hold)

So many good holds! I'm surprised I scored so well, haha. Shame my score wasn't 7.99, huh?
Didn't think to write down all my thoughts on the other holds somewhere, let alone even the scores I gave, and definitely no room-by-room thoughts since I got stuck on a lot of rooms, but I did keep track of my thoughts while designing my own level! ...not that there'd really be any interest in reading a first-timer's thoughts.
EDIT - Actually, here are some more thoughts:

There's always interest in a first-timer's thoughts! We only have a small amount of notes and comments about the architecture process itself so I for one would be very interested in hearing about how you made some of the rooms. They don't even have to be super extensive or formal notes either, just a sentence or two would be neat.

quote:

I'm not sure that those specific challenges are even possible to program given the list of DROD scripting commands...

The ones you listed are pretty straightforward to program since we have events that can detect evil eyes waking up or mud being cut. The challenges themselves are kind of easy IMO, since they don't really change your approach drastically, just extend the solution a little bit. It's cool that that kind of attention was put into there, though. Both of those challenges are the kind of thing that would be hard to enforce with just KDD elements, so it probably makes sense for them to be scripted challenges rather than extra secret rooms or similar.

If I was organized like Chaco I would have uploaded these in advance. Anyway, here is my LP playlist for the contest entries.

I had a lot of fun with these. Nothing was too difficult, which is nice for a contest entry since there's time pressure to play through them before voting ends.

Anonymized is preferred and how it's usually done, but it's up to each contest organizer to decide how he/she wants to do it.

I see! Good to know.

For those interested, I just edited my previous message with some more dev notes, and for hyperme I also added some pictures of potential room edits for the compilation (unless we're expected to submit a new version of the level to be copied again?).

Hooray! Some tough competition and lots of good levels. I'm glad people liked mine, it's been a while since I broke out the ol' level editor.

I've half written up some comments on other holds, and on my thought process, but I'll finish them later.

I see a couple of unintended solutions from the video reviews, so I think I want to make a few changes to my entry for the compilation.
