CONTEST Q & A
Please feel free to discuss the contest and ask any questions you may have.
The answers will be updated in this post
Q. How will the levels be selected for the playing contest?
A. The levels will be selected from those entered in the create contest, they must meet the following criteria : must have good playability, lack any holes or exploitable scoring bugs, Sack pocket feature must be disabled if you wish to have your level considered for the playing event (to prevent any sack villains from stealing that playing crown with nefarious glitching/exploits).
Please note the playing field will be a varied selection of random levels from the contest and might not even contain the winning create level if the creator has opted to use the sack pocket function in their level.
Q. Can I make it part of a series /adventure/ have a separate movie intro/ending levels?
A. The judges will be just looking at the main playable level which must be directly accessible without having to use links. by all means feel free to have additional content but that will not be part of the judged material.
Q. Can I use an existing Villain?
A. Yes by all means but remember we are looking for originality and creativity. Creating your own original Villain may sway the judges in their deliberations. If you use an existing Villain then your use of that has to be pretty unique to make it stand out among the many other levels that may have previously used said character.
Q. Are you obligated to using only one villain or can you use several? Like a team up between Collector, and The Hoard? Is that okay?
A. Yes that would be permitted as would the presence of evil minnions, goons, Henchmen, additional support cast, storyline cut scenes, doomsday weapons,
Donald Trump, diabolical plots...any evil you villainous genius' can imagine.
Q. Can I co-create a level with a friend?
A. Yes by all means..but remember only the psn account on which the level is published wins the Crown prize.
Q. Hmmm...villains...does that mean it has to be a sackbot-type villain or can it be something else? Can something disembodied be considered a villain here?
A. A villain can be anything you can imagine, the more original the better!
Q. Can we do create contest and play contest both?
A. Creators are allowed to enter the play contest if they wish. If a creators level is selected to be part of the playing field of levels then they will automatically be given the same score as the 2nd place player on their own level.
Q. Does the hero have to be sackboy or can it be any playable character?
A. The Villain doesn't have to be a sackboy or even a playable character. The Villain may have just created a doomsday machine for you to battle or Villainous Lair you have to explore.
