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?


You're not limited to doing a story, a survival level also fits the criteria. Without a story however, it may be more difficult to impress the judges with your unique twist on the cliché - it has to be more than just a good level, we're looking for some clever or surprising twist.
If you have a clear and inspired vision, go with it ;)

Whether to be funny, serious, or a mix of both is entirely up to you. The important thing is to create something fun and engaging :)

I am very excited about the excellent idea behind this contest and with the deadline of two months no creator should let it just go by. The announcement level actually captured some of the true spirit of LBP so I hope this gets a lot of attention and will show everyone LBP is still a whole lot of fun!  :P May the 4th be with you! I mean June... may the june be ...ah nevermind.

I have two questions:

1-should I make an adventure? Or a single level?
2-if I won, will the crown code work in any country?

Hope you reply to me (:

Thanks (: another two questions please:

1-can I make it a mini game?
2-can I make the adventure/level a mix of two themes?

Y'know, the more I think about this, the more I want to participate. It may just be the motivation I need to finish my Alien UFO abduction level. But, I already have the crown and pin so what incentive would I have to try? Used to give out free games. What about that? Ah who am I kidding? I wouldn't stand a chance, unless of course you guys chose mine as "Our worst entry"

Whether to make an Adventure or a regular level (up to 3 levels allowed for your entry) is your choice. If you plan on having quests or sackpocket items that carry over between levels then an Adventure is the best option.
Crown codes are region specific, but we'll get a code for the winner's correct region :)

Aside from the prizes, you're likely to get a little publicity. Contest entries will be featured in a list, and possibly also a hub but this is not decided for certain. Might turn the announcement level into a hub after the deadline.

Good questions :)
It can be a mini game, or even a series of mini games that go together as a set.
Yes, you can mix genres together.

Characters are entirely up to you.
No DLC is ever required for our competitions :)

You can use an existing story idea, like a fairy tale for example, but it shouldn't be just a copy - it's should be done in your own wa with some twist or spin on the original.
Most of your level should be interactive gameplay. You can have cinematics too, but those should just be icing on the cake. It needs to be more of a playable level than a movie.

What means "cliché"? Because I seriously don't understand it (sorry for that)

Something that is unoriginal because it's been done many times before, a stereotype, predictable. We want you to start with an idea that is very common and take it in a new and unique direction.

Hello,
Does it have to be a game or can it be like a movie?
