Yay yay yay congrats everyone!!

I had such a blast working on a full hack with QLDC rules in mind. Felt great to team up with friends again too, especially for more out there ideas, haha.

Thanks to all the judges for judging and streaming the entries! It was so much fun seeing live reactions to our stuff, as always. Thanks to Amper for hosting the entire contest as well, and the PR team for bringing this whole thing together!

Definitely can't wait for the next HackJam, questionable or not.
What is a Lunar Magic, and can I eat it?
Very questionable placements. I imagine all y'all had such a blast questioning your levels. Congrats, questioners!
Thank you  AmperSam, the judges and participants for QuHackJam! #w{<3}

A helping Hand: My favorite entry! Such a very unique co-op hack! This is a must play!

Age of Luigi: You may have win nothing, but I strongly like it! Very fun classic standard hack parody I highly recommand! (especially the final boss)

Beet Jam: Aww you didn't win a jam of beet prize #tb{:p}. 2nd favorite entry!
4/4 JUMP
is one of my favorite levels of all time! I hope there will be more beet levels!

BOXMAN TANO and the Quest for the VIP Pass: Amazing work Team Jank, 3rd favorite entry!
The biggest hack of QuHackJam is very fun overall! The free overworld is super cool (although the level progression is still very linear which is questionable, that's the point! #tb{:j}) Caution for new players, the base difficulty is much higher than ~OMH~ (but easier in its hardest) imo.

Mario Goes to Buy Soft Tacos: Very very close to my 3rd place favorite! I liked every level, like the quiz one, the smb3 one, the ... well you get the idea. Also get the bonus game (get stars from the goal tape), very important!

Random Access Memoby: Ultra extremely hard hack!! I didn't even get to the 1st checkpoint! I wish I could at least visit it with savespam but unfortunately it removes the purpose of that hack, ramdomness. Sorry I didn't enjoy it, I feel it's too much for the players :(

Reverie: The 2 things questionable is: 1. it makes the player have questions, 2. is it a normal HackJam entry? Btw I strongly enjoy it, (although pressing the button X to see text (I use Y as my main run button) is a weird choice). Again very close to my top 3 entries!

Super Mario World Random Revolution X: Although you didn't win a prize because it's more like a qldc entry (if 5 collab entry are allowed), It's a very very impressive hack pushing the boundaries of smw futher! Congratulations!
My 1st romhack in progress (testing avaiable)...
