Tileset/level contest.

I haven't really been active in the community lately. Actually, it's been since around 2005 since I've been on JJ2 for longer than a minute. But I have not forgotten this amazing bunny game of love and peace.

Anyway, I will be sponsoring a tileset/level contest; the winner will receive $40 via Paypal. Or if you don't have Paypal, I'll put four ten dollar bills in an envelope and send it to you. Of course, if my countries currency isn't accepted where you live, or it "gets lost in the mail," you're SOL. So I'd advise having a Paypal account. There are some specific guidelines you will have to follow, however. One in particular; abstractness.

I don't want to see anything generic, such as a tileset with grass and trees. I want to see some "fed up s!" Create something that comes from YOU, as unaffected as possible from anything external. Something that possibly only you could ever interpret. Perhaps you could draw from random childhood memories for inspiration. I want to see something extremely strange, inspired, twisted, and yet still appealing and usable in JJ2.

There is not an exact deadline decided yet, but it will be sometime in April. This post will be updated once I have chosen an exact date.

Good luck!

also if a group of people would like to pool their resources and buy me a drink, this would be great. i'm thirsty. don't worry, they won't card you.

I fail to see the logic of having your contestants buy drinks for you, but this might be a nice incentive to finish that one tileset (not the waz one) I have lying around.

ok, i'll make it $60... christ, you guys are lazy. these are tough times and you suck that much? if it took you 6 hours total to accomplish a project, that's $10/hr which is better than minimum wage. nubs go ride the fail whale

You haven't even set a deadline yet, but from according to the first post, we have until April. I still intend to participate, and would have even if you hadn't raised the prize.

If i happen to be struck by an awesome idea until the deadline (which most likely won't happen), then you can be sure there's a chance of your money used for good sambuca. But probably there won't.

I'm working on it, Ninja. But good tilesets take time to draw. :-p

Edit: I'm planning on finishing my entry in the next holiday, from the 4th of April to the 12th.

Hmm, guess I won't be getting a prize. Oh well, still was fun making the tileset.

good entries, you guys. it sucks not many people entered this, which kind of defeated the purpose. you both are eligible to $5 if you want.
