Thank you for participating! In total, you have submitted 19 frightening, cunning, and sometimes even loving antagonists to take down, across the submission threads on the SMBX Forums and the talkhaus forums. I have given them all a quick look to confirm their validity, and sent them off to the judges to fix their gaze upon.
Speaking of which... I haven't revealed them yet. Maybe I should... do that.

The host of the recent SMBX Retro Boss Contest is here to judge another. They've seen what you can do with just layers and events and are interested in just how far you can go.
While not very active in either community, Jelly's experience judging levels and bosses shan't be overlooked. Their critique may offer a different perspective rarely found in our communities.
I am giving the judges up to 2 months to judge all the bosses and deliver to me their judgement. The release of the results, if everything goes well, should occur by the end of July. If something gets in the way, I will make sure to give updates. There is one other matter to discuss for now, though.
❓Poll: Boss Relay, yay or nay?
A popular community event from the prior contests. To those unfamiliar: A level file with a single boss fight gets passed around to participants of the relay (may differ from contest participants) and the crew do one short phase at a time during a period of a few days, until a spectacular boss is made by the end.
I'm ready to have such an event this time as well, but my time is fairly limited this month. So I have two questions:
Who is interested in participating?
Is there someone who would be able to take over the bulk of the hosting work (organizing the timetable, setting up the level file and lua, making sure it goes to plan)?
Let me know what you think.
