Merry Christmas everyone! Happy Holidays! As my gift to everyone, I bring the results for VLDC12! It's been a long few months, (and an even longer year...) but it was nice to have that familiar feel of VLDC to anchor us through these tough times. So, how did you score? Read on and find out!
As I like to do with every contest I host, let's take a moment before we get to the full results to thank our judges for their time spent and contributions to the contest. FPzero, Atari2.0, Sixcorby, and Sinc-X will each receive VLDC Judge trophies to commemorate their involvement. Additionally, I would like to thank Medic and Teyla for originally helping judge, even though they both had to drop out partway through.
And now, what you've all been waiting for.

The full contest results are available by clicking the huge link below. This will take you to our judging spreadsheet, where you can view complete placement details, as well as what score each individual judge gave each level. The number in the rightmost column is the internal number for your level that we used to identify entries during anonymous judging. You can use it to find your level in our scoring documents. A green cell in each judge's scoring colum signals their favorite level. There is no prize for being a judge's favorite, other than bragging rights!
Unfortunately, there were seven disqualifications. They're all located at the bottom of the spreadsheet against a black background. Click the following Collapse tag to see the disqualified levels and the reasons they were not scored.
Additionally, here are links to each judge's individual level scorings. These will have detailed score breakdowns by category as well as comments, feedback and reasonings for why each level was scored the way it was. I highly recommend reading them!
Thanks once again to all the judges, and to everyone who participated this year. I hope you all had a fun time making levels! And as we approach the end of this...turbulent year, I truly wish everyone the best. This site turns 15 years old soon, and we're still hanging in there. It's always a joy to host these contests, so look forward to more of them in 2021. I know I will.
Until next contest, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone!
I expected that I could be in the top 50, but I never expected that I would be in the 17th. There were very successful entries and everyone had very original content. I congratulate everyone! Many people on this site inspired me a lot and became like my teacher. I am grateful to everyone. Again, I congratulate everyone!

Congrats to anyone who participated, there were a ton of creative and fun levels. I'm kinda surpised of some of the top 10 choices, but I'm happy Wakana and me made it in there.
As said there were so many amazing levels and as I played through all of them, I'd say this way probably my 2nd favorite VLDC (after vldc9). Good job everyone!
Also thanks to the judges for gifting us the results as an xmas present and for their detailed feedback
47th. I'd say that's pretty good considering it's top 50/over halfway through the results, and the fact this is my first VLDC level and first real SMW level in a long time. The less said about my Morton's Empire level the better
This makes a nice Chistmas present and I hope everyone is either stasified with how they placed or got useful feedback from the judges. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and all that jazz.
also JupiHornet my level is offically better than yours get naenaed on, and snoruntpyro I'll find a way to steal your level design prowess for my own purposes mark my words.

Little lower than my personal ambition, yet fully satisfying!
Congrats to winner and thanks for every judge and participant! I played every entry, and it was a very fantastic experience and most levels were enjoyable! My personal favorites was CUNNING PLUMBING, Thrill Seeker, Tarnished Tartarus, Monty Migration, and CUNNING PLUMBING was exceptionally fantastic! Great job!
Can't wait for next year's VLDC, I got a new idea to make gimmick, and I'll try to make a better level next year!
