Gustav's Contest (Deadline now October 15th)
« on: March 10, 2023, 02:46:09 »
Challenge: make a level inspired by Gustav's Daughter. Some people have already done this, and at least one of them has done an awesome job at it. Now we will continue telling the story of one of our most beloved NPCs.

Rules:

-Must be called "Gustav's ______"
-Gustav must have something or someone locked in his storage room and you need to go on a quest to find the key. So it's a challenge level I guess
-Must have some of those stalactite umbrella jumps like in the original level's cave
-Should probably be on the smaller side--if you want to make a gigantic level, it'd better be pretty impressive
-Must use a "world map" setup. You can use any existing world-mappy tileset or make your own. I attached a few things to help out
-You must start this level from scratch
-These "rules" are all pretty flexible

Deadline: August 1st. NEW DEADLINE IS OCTOBER 15TH I will judge. If it's too hard for me to play I will make Pfrangip or someone do it for me.

Prizes: first and second prize and maybe even third prize will receive a handwritten postcard from Lucinda, as long as you live in an area that accepts mail from the United States. It is also possible I may make you a beaded necklace

I'd participate if i weren't already making a Gustav-like that breaks half of these rules.

I'll still try to release it before the contest deadline and fit in a stalactite umbrella jump.

Count me in.

I have one question though. How world mapey has the world map in the level be ? Would for example long corridor with several doors be sufficient ?

I think in general I allow for very flexible interpretation of the rules because this is a creative space, not a government form. :^^: So, yes, go for the doors

Should we say what titles we're planning to use for our levels to avoid potential duplication, or would it be funnier to let chaos reign?

if conflicts ensue apply gratuitous subtitles ("Gustav's Wi-Fi Router: A Quest Through Time And Space")

Good question. I think people should message me beforehand telling me what their level titles are, and if there are duplicates, I can coach them toward potentially using a slightly different title. I've already seen firsthand what confusion the two Yggdrasil levels have caused, we can't have it happening again.

Okay, I decided to make the level. I still have no specific idea, but I hope when I write it officially here, I will keep it in mind. The level will probably be small and short.

Okay, i changed my mind and decided to make a level for this contest anyway.
Here it is. It's called Gustav's Planets.

This is my first time making a Knytt Stories level, but hopefully it'll still be fun to play. Maybe i'll even win this contest?

GOOD level :) however I found a bug: the A button makes u walk instead of run? Idk if you can fix.  This has inspired me to crack open the editor & make my own ks level (preview screenshot) thank you
