[Closed] XenoMiner Contest (Deadline 10pm CST Jan 9th 2013)

Postby dsgraham » Tue Jan 08, 2013 4:08 pm

Looking for a way to stay as busy as us dev's before the update? How about a chance to be immortalized in XenoMiner History? Join our first ever User Submission Contest and have a chance to get your name into the game.

I was inspired by looking at some of the screen grabs people have been uploading, so I thought we could have a little contest before the update goes into Peer Review.

We want to see your best pixel art brought to life on Xenos. Build an iconic 8-bit video game character, a logo (Sorry Wayne and almantux11, you'll need to make a new one) or whatever pixelized artwork you can dream. Post a picture of your artwork here. We will lock this thread at 10pm CST Jan 9th( 4am Jan 10th GMT) so don't be late.

We will choose the winner and announce it in this post. In your post please add your real name or the name* you want to be displayed in the description of one of the door elements and we will add your name into the game when the update goes out.

Happy Building!

Sorry i'm not perfect with English but does that mean like any character that is in any game? So like Assassins Creed or Mario etc? And can it be more than one?

Probably not. When we lock the thread it is over, it won't be before that time though. We need it to be over before we push the update to peer review to get it in there.

Its Jumpman, now known as Mario, making one of the most iconic jumps in video gaming history, although I think he's about to lose a life...

ShinyHobo is the name I wish to be displayed.

I didn't have much time or materials, but I can build more tonight. And this is from the 1980's Donkey Kong... No Princess Peach... But there was a Penelope! Still, lol and thanks!
