GSE-Fest now has a project for those just starting out, or who are looking on a new, more simplified take on making GSE content! This isn't a contest entry but it'll be in the projects tab. Hopefully you can use it to make entries more easily! https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/323292135/
Hello, and welcome to GSE Fest, or Genesis Sonic Engine Festival!
On this beautiful month of August when GSE was first released to the public, I figured we could celebrate by holding a special contest! (Well originally the concept was by @SonicFan2009 but the deadlines were a lot tighter and it wasn't linked to the anniversary.)
GSE devs far and wide, please gather to this event and fill it with projects of the following
1. It MUST be made in Genesis Sonic Engine by @tomicool or one of its variants.
2. It MUST feature a new or modified level layout.
3. Please create said content during this month; it's uncertain whether entries outside of August 2019 will be chosen as winners, but preferably we'll get some brand-new content rather then levels made previously. (Though that definitely doesn't negate their awesomeness, so if you want feel free to talk about your favorite level remixes!)
I chose these requirements for a purpose; Genesis Sonic Engine has had tons of character-focused remixes, including most of mine. These simply added in a character and while it is fun to see the characters and their movesets coming to life, it'd be sweet to see more custom levels made for the engine. With the advent of Scratch 3.0, there's a few bugs with GSE that are a bit finicky to fix, but there's also a less talked about thing, which is that levels are no longer restricted to a certain size within a certain costume. If you're not going to use my tedious "level-porting" method, that's okay. Just design a level the way you want it to be designed, and release it! Then ask me or another curator to add it to the studio. I'll make sure to check 'em all out before it's over!
With that said, this is all in good fun but it's also a contest. With that said here's the
1st place winner:
--Hahasamian will port three requested levels into Scratch 3 and/or Genesis Sonic Ultimate Engine
--Hahasamian will add one requested character into GSUE
2nd place winner:
--Hahasamian will port two levels or one character into Scratch 3/GSUE by request
3rd place winner:
--Hahasamian will port one level into Scratch 3/GSUE by request
Oh and yes, you can collab with other users. Rules for collaborating winners is that all parties involved in the creation of new content must have an agreement on the prize choices or otherwise split them!
Any thoughts or suggestions? Let me know, either here in the studio comments or on my profile if that doesn't seem to reach me! I'm open to suggestions and changes that might need to be made.
UPADTE: Since the winners have been decided, I'll post their requested prizes!
-- 1st place: @ScooperAx --
GSUE Character Request:
Spark the Electric Jester. (I've never played Spark, hmm... we'll have to see how I can get this to turn out, I guess!)
Port the Hidden Palace skin to Scratch 3: https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/87319588/
Use MrLog's engine test map/s as levels in GSUE.
-- 2nd place: @Sonictheredhog --
GSUE Character Request:
Knuckles. (His old code is a bit weird, that's mainly why he isn't in the engine yet. Hopefully I can get him in by the next release though!)
-- 3rd place: @superkalvis --
You can still request one level port.
