After years of talking about it, months of planning, and thanks to the hard work and dedication of the admins and Hack section staff, it's finally happened: we are rolling out a new approach to hack difficulty for Kaizo Hacks, as well as a way for creators to pick multiple difficulty tags for their submissions
Ugh, all I see around here is nothing but candy wrappers. People gotta learn to clean their mess up!
...Anyway, the HackJam deadline is now extended to Saturday, December 11th, 12:00 PM EST! This will be our only extension for this event, so don't dilly-dally!
Want some music while you work? you've still got time to listen to all the Super Famicompo tracks! (Remember, votes are due December 5th!) And while you're at it, the music tourney is still going on two months later! Even if you didn't submit anything, you can still vote for your favorite music here.
You've made it: Jam Central Station, the central depository for all things Space HackJam. From the best seats in the house, you can peruse the production notes, find out about the filmmakers, check out the theatrical trailer, and look at a bunch of photos from the film.
Alternatively, you can read the HackJam rules over here. Remember, the deadline is Friday, November 27, 12:00 PM EST. Start spreadin that jam around!!!!!
Ahoy. Resident "trophy nerd" here. You're probably well aware that in the past year or so, as contests have come around we have ensured that we have added participant and judge trophies to the trophy sets awarded - and then gone back and retrospectively awarded all the old contests these trophies too! Well, we decided it was high-time we filled in the last few gaps, giving all of our level design / resource contests full sets of 1st - 3rd, participant, and judge trophies! Here are the new trophies we designed to fit into the old sets - with thanks to a bit of help from AmperSam and Deeke to fill in a few gaps! Hover over them for more info.
So if you ever entered, judged, or hosted one of these contests - check your profiles! Additionally, if you're really eagle-eyed, you may have noticed that we used to have two very similar sets of Overworld Design Contest trophies (the new set was an update of the old one we rolled out for OWDC #3 / 2019). We've decided to make the old set obsolete, which means we've now added participant/judge trophies to the really old OWDCs (#1 + #2 / 2009 + 2012). And of course, we have updated the big trophy list page with these new trophies too. (What!? There's a Trophy List page?)
Remember - if you don't like that we've added into your profile the fact that you came 92nd place in 2009's OWDC, or whichever contest really, you can ask a one of the Trophy Moderators to hide the trophy (or any trophy, really - no questions asked!).
Time for an event that breaks all the rules!!! Team entries only, multi-level submissions, standard and Kaizo, it's got it all! Check out the announcement here, and use this thread if you need help making a team.
Don't start your entries just yet, though! The contest officially starts Saturday, October 23rd, 12:00 PM EST.
