Cliché My Way (LBNCMW)
Deadline has passed, contest is closed

The announcement level has been replaced with a participants hub: https://lbp.me/v/q1j...eviews?p=1&l=12

post-43526-0-73550800-1490827712.jpg

For this competition, we want you to use a cliché premise and create level with your own unique twist. What we mean by cliché is a basic concept that has been overused to the point of becoming a stereotype, an idea that everyone has seen before, maybe even worth calling a classic. Take something that's been done a bazillion times before, and make it your own with a new and original creation. You may use up to 3 levels, linked or contained in an Adventure.
The winner will receive a rare LBN Pin and a Crown!
:D
(If the winner already has a Crown or Pin, the prizes will be passed on the runner up)

Possible cliché themes include:
  • Rescue the princess!
  • Superhero saves the day!
  • Aliens! (stranded on an alien planet or alien invasion)
  • Stranded on a dinosaur infested island!
  • Zombie hordes!
  • Search the ancient ruins for lost treasure!
  • Rampaging robots!
  • Spend the night in a haunted house!
If you have another idea and you're not sure whether it's a cliché, just ask :)

Rules
Entries must be published by June 4th 11:59pm GMT
No more than 3 levels per entry, one entry per person
Levels must have (LBNCMW) somewhere in the title
Levels also need to be posted in the Participants Thread
Entries must be playable in LBP3
Judging will be done single player on PS4 in order to minimize issues during gameplay

Cinematics are allowed, but not required. This competition is focused on creating playable content.
Previously published levels are not allowed. If you have projects on your Moon that have not been published before, those can be reworked and used for this contest.
You may work with other creators, but if you win, deciding how to share the prizes will up to you. Only one Pin and one Crown will be given.
Focus on quality over quantity, and use your level space wisely. Remember to back up your work and your profile regularly. Most importantly, have fun! ;)

New to LBP3? Missing all those goodies from LBP1 and LBP2?
I have the assets available in a copyable level: https://lbp.me/v/qxt...eviews?p=1&l=12

Hi Thomas :)
Recreating an older level is fine, so long as most of it is newly created rather than reusing the original content.
As to whether it's a cliché, that really depends on the theme of the level ;)

On my journey recreating this level I tried to make it as close to the original.
But...
making everything ...my gramps helped alot before he c passed away.
seeings I looked up the word cliché, almost every level is one.
I just wanted to pay tribute to my gramps favorite creater..thats a cliché too...right

So Cliche is more tied to the theme of the level right or more so first impressions? The actually unfolding of the story or level and mechanics does not need to be cliche correct?

The judges will be looking for a clever use of your cliché, in whatever form your level takes. If you have a storyline, we should see the cliché there :)

Making a non-competitive entry sounds interesting to me but actually I'm also quite lazy so....

Anyways have fun everyone, this contest gives you actually a lot of possibilities!

Deadline for this contest is now June 4th!
The original deadline of May 4th was a misprint, sorry for the confusion :)
We had originally talked about doing a shorter contest and I must have kept that earlier date in mind.

I agree, I think 2 months is the perfect amount of time!

Probably next time I write a contest announcement, I should not stay up until 5am the night before - makes my brain all foggy :P

As you all start working on your levels feel free to post pics of any work in progress, sketches, or sources for inspiration. I'd like to Tweet those on the LBN account to generate a little buzz about what's going on here.

Is this limited to story tropes or do level tropes count too?(like trying to make a good survival level)

/

Is the point to take a cliche and make a serious version of it or to be fun/quirky/meta and poke fun at it?
