I speak for most people in the SMBX server. We've all been wanting an extension request.

Reasons why:

1. (personal opinion) There's literally only two people that submitted for the contest and that barely seems enough for judging, wouldn't be special enough.

2, (actual reasons) Motivation has been tough to come by for some contestants. Examples include me, Spencer, Raptarr8.

3. This contest ends around university finals for a lot of people include me, Raptarr8, Gbradley231. And maybe even more that just didn't speak out. It causes problems at the end for when you want to polish up your entry.

4. Cut content and ambitious entries. (Me with some cut content and Phoenix with an ambitious entry)

An extension of 1 or 2 weeks would be a miracle for us to have. That way, we might not cut out a lot of planned content that would be in our entries.

We hope you accept this.

In light of many participants currently going through an exam period, the deadline has been extended by 2 weeks.

8 hours left. I'll be out until shortly before the deadline, so I won't be able to do any re-rolls anymore. Good luck with the final stretch and I'm looking forward to playing all the bosses.

I was debating on submitting my unfinished entry with a disclaimer, but it is currently too buggy even for that. If I was allowed to submit latter with a penalty, I would; but unfortunately, something more sorrowful came up that took up an entire week. If I can cobble SOMETHING together before I fall asleep within the next three hours, I will submit that.

📢Judging begins

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.

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.

Regarding that last part, will it take to code an npc or a boss using adversary.lua (for the relay)?

I assume you mean the boss relay.
Last contest's boss relay may be a good reference point:

How's the progress of Mafab3's judging going? Only a bit curious because I haven't seen many people talk about the contest.

Approaching the end. If all goes well, the LP should start within the next couple of weeks.

And here is a link to the keyword generator, if you want to give it a go yourself.

For a list of all the reviews, go here. Individual judge spreadsheets are at the bottom.

So without further ado... congratulations to Team Scope Creep - Mushashi for getting 1st. I was very surprised to see no favourite medals here as well, but Most Fun, Most Awesome and 0.6 points lead speak for itself.
Thanks to everyone for participating! Playing and viewing all your creations has been a joy, as always. The next contest will be the Chocolate Contest, starting in roughly a month. Get your level design bones ready.
If you have any feedback, you know where to go.

I like to assume the best in contestants, so I didn't consider that someone would go out of their way to willingly break a rule. If you want you can have a penalty next contest for this.
