Fon-Contest!

Postby Avaible » Mon Jan 17, 2011 5:42 pm



Would have been the topics name if it wasn't for it's length.

That's why I called it .

Now that we've cleared that, let's start with the introduction!

A wise man once said - 'People die when they are killed'
And that was Shirou from Fate/Stay Night, let's hope we do better.





- every Novelty-User is cordially invited to participate! Seriously, be part of our very first VisualNovel Contest and show us what you can create with Novelty!
- if you're a Novelty-User but have no Account for the forum, make one and participate! The more the merrier.




- every participant is allowed to enter with as many self-created visual novels as he/she/it/something wants
(you put it together in Novelty and have the permission to use the Art/Music or you were asked to enter the contest by the one who created the vnovel)


- every participant has to at least post a download link and some additional information (next post) of his novel to enter the contest

- every user of our forum is allowed to vote for his favourite vnovel once I create the poll (which will be after the deadline for entries is over - at end of this post)

- each vnovel can have as many routes as you like with each route having a word maximum of 1500 words
- I won't behead you if you are one or two hundred words over the limit, don't worry
- that also includes the theoretic possibility to tell the whole novel without any words at all - in that case, use pictures, don't trust voice acting too much since many of us have a different native language than English

- if your vnovel includes 18/21+ material (meaning, if you think of it that way), you need to mark it as such
- every user has the responsibility to decide by himself wether he wants to or does not want to read those
- nevertheless, vnovels 18/21+ are still included in the normal voting
- but hey, this here is the internet, as if there were any kids who haven't seen worse ...



Deadline is the 29.01.2011 15:00 Greenwich Mean Time [UTC -/+ 0]

You have to add/subtract according to your UTC time.
(e.g. UTC + 10 would be 1'Clock 30.01.2011 at your place when UTC 0 has reached 15:00)
(e.g. I myself am UTC +1, so I would have time 'till 16:00 on my clock)

After the deadline is over, I will create a poll where everyone can vote for his favourite vnovel presented in the contest.
It's not yet decided how many days the poll will be opened, but since it's a one-time thing it won't be too long.


You will get a neat little title to show that you're the winner of our first Fon-Contest ever.
The title will be shown below your username whenever you're posting something.





Those were the rules, following now is an example of how an entry to the contest could look like.

First entry to the Fon-Contest!
This here will be a reference to you what needs to be included when making an entry, but please don't forget in your votes that I'm really participating;)

( you don't have to write down the words in ())

(Title) Lovely Bomb
(Creator) by Avaible


(Link)

(Description)
It's the story about a devilish girl meeting an delinquent who's not too familiar with the English language.
(You don't need to explain anything in detail, since it are just short novels)

(possible warning)
The game includes words like 'killing', 'blood' and 'bureaucracy'.
If you think you can't handle those, please don't download/play it.


(Optional: Here you could also include some kind of signature of you vnovel, like the start screen or a CG or whatever you fantasy bestows upon you)

(I created my pic in less than three minutes, so don't think about it too much - the game isn't nearly as violent)

Too wordy? Do you mean it's too bothersome to post a link and one sentence of story-summary?

It's official because it's posted in the official Novelty forum.
It wouldn't be official had Erik objected to this contest.

I just did a quick look, and all of the ones I've done exceed the word limit. :cry:
Why? I like big ones, that's why.

Like I wrote it's still okay if they're some hundred words longer. Or is each route longer than 2000?

Murderer
by Jvcscasio

http://www.mediafire.com/?ti4c2ygtns9g53j

Miguel lost his memories, now he must discover why!
If you play all routes you can understand what happened!

It has murder and engrish, if you can't handle those, don't play...

It's not much of a contest with only 3 entries. :roll:
I've looked at all three entries, and other than the one I entered, :oops: they are pretty good. ;)

Yeah, with only three participants it's not really much of a competition :?

But well, to be honest I didn't expect anything in the first place so it's not that much of a shock. Even though I'd had liked to have more novels to read ... :D
Anyways, it's the first contest and I'm glad there even were some people out there to take part in it - thanks fleet and jvcscasio.

The contest was an attempt to have a bit fun in the forums and to encourage more users to show off their works. But there's always a next time and still one more day to go! Hope dies last!

And once this is over I want to hear ideas to improve the next Fon-Contest from all of you;)
