VANILLART RESULTS!

Postby Emral » Fri Jun 14, 2024 10:02 am

You've waited, and waited. And you will wait one more day for the other contest, maybe. But more importantly than that, I bring good news and bad news...
The bad news first: Our trusted judge Waddle had to withdraw from judging for personal reasons. There's nothing to worry about, he's just been so, extremely, busy. It is what it is. So the scores ended up a bit thin. But as they say! Art is free from judgement anyway, so you're all winners in my book.

Moving on, the good news!

In THIRD PLACE with a humble 9.75/10, it's...

In SECOND PLACE with an even more humble 9.8125/10, it's...

Congrats to all the participants! This was an exciting contest, and I had a blast exploring all of the entries.
My personal favorite is Blurp Village.

Night at The Bisexual Motel was made based on a personal journey with my sexual orientation. I wanted to make the entry feel "comfy," as if the player was always welcomed in each room. The biggest challenge was figuring out which objects fit best with the Gameboy screen effect. I was originally going to stick to one room. But when I noticed the colors I picked for the screen made the seaweed black, I decided to expand it to a whole motel. Working with configs for this contest helped me appreciate them even more. There's much more you can do with them in X2! I'm shocked at how underutilized they are! As with all the other entries from this contest, I believe any interpretation of NTBM is valid. If you played my entry and want to share your thoughts, shoot me a DM at any time!

indeed i didn't do dream dance manually, i wrote a program that scans an image and then scans all of the blocks in smbx's graphics folder to find the closest match based on a block's top left corner for every pixel. then i had to downsize that to every two pixels due to smbx's block limit.

if i get the time to improve the algorithm and automate the process better i might release it publicly for fun (don't count on it)

anyways great job to the participants, really creative and eye-pleasing visuals on display here, good stuff guys
