2023 Event Calendar


This is the Event Calendar for 2023. Contests may have their dates moved as necessary, or be completely removed from the calendar.

This is not a complete calendar, and will be added to as the year goes on and more contests have their details finalized. Certain events, like 24hoSMWs and 72hoSPCs, may be planned and hosted without being added to the calendar ahead of time.

I'm glad that Kaizo is allowed for OLDC. This will help distinguish it from traditional VLDC.
Our current plan is to swap between VLDC and OLDC every year for contest variety.
CLDC my beloved
Current Projects:

“If you are not able to be wrong, you will never come up with something original”
So, what’s the future of the ExGFX Contest or the LM Creativity Contest?
I didn't expect to see the calendar published so early. :o
Here are some of my thoughs:
- I'm glad to see a CLDC even if it doesn't come at the best time for me to make something ambitious (but that's the way life goes lol);
- HLDC is a good surprise (I thought of this one lately funnily enough), I definitively plan to take part in this one;
- I'm really curious about the Standard/Kaizo OLDC; I know there was a demand about a kaizo OLDC but I would have expected it rather in a 72ho format so this one is also a good surprise (I almost want to try it just for the fun even if I suck at kaizo lol).
Sad that there's no VLDC but glad that there's an OLDC.
The calendar is truly amazing. 2023 has been a paradise for me before it even started.

I know that contests like 24ho, 72ho are decided later, but I still have a question. Could VLDC come this year as 72ho? Is there such an idea?
I couldn't find anything to write :| By the way my Youtube channel
A bit sad Hackjam doesn't seem to be returning this year yet. I loved that contest. a lot of contests this time around don't really catch my eye.

QLDC and HLDC are the two exceptions and I'm personally getting a bit tired of KLDC.
Also excited for whatever 24Ho's happen this year.
I've got nothing to add to any of this nonsense besides that I will see you all when the events go live! I actually intend to participate in some of these and not just be an awkward lurker 100% of the time.
Definitely looking forward to the Questionable Level contest. That should be easy enough for me since all of my level design decisions are questionable, haha~
 ---> Magic: The Gathering Legends <---
April will be sweet
Good set of events, I'm looking forward to these. June being empty also makes it seem like a great time for a certain Auditory Competition™
Check out my WIP romhack!
Kinda wish Secret Santa or 12 Days Before Christmas makes a come back, but hey can't complain about another CLDC and HLDC! QLDC too.

Want progress on 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Go here to see.

Are you a sample porter and wanna help with 100 Rooms of Enemies: The Nightmare Edition? Private Message me or Mellonpizza for details. Expect trading "resources" in exchange. 4 more left.

I'm really liking this event lineup, there's gonna be lots for the community to partake in!

Nice to see HLDC again too, looking forward to it especially. #smrpg{:P}
What is a Lunar Magic, and can I eat it?

I don't think we'll do an outright 72-hour VLDC, but we could definitely have some shorter contests with VLDC rules sneak in.
