Two entries broke rules for this contest, and as such had their penalties reflected in their judge scores. Make sure to thoroughly read the rules next time, friendos ! You may read all of our individual feedbacks below, if you would feel so inclined:

We all had a blast going through and judging these. All of the entries were crazy this time around, and you all gave it your whole human body's worth. It was a blast to be able to see all of the creative and unique takes you all had on the concept of the automata, and how this contest went seals our commitment to continue running this - hopefully again next year, even? 🤱

thank you and good night !
I would like to congratulate everyone and I would like ALDC to take place next year

Wow, I'm in a three-way tie for 9th place. We're the strongest! :P
Congratulations to the winners!

And yes, it would've been nice if my level worked 100% of the time. I wanted to stay true to it being totally vanilla (aside from the music), without requiring the patch to reset the global counters. But unfortunately, despite my best efforts, it still breaks in a couple of spots occasionally. I probably should've just used that patch from the start. Oh, well. At least the level should still work more than half the time, I believe.
Not bad for my first auto level entry. As much as there could've been more, I couldn't think of anything else to add.

9th place! I didn't expect my entry to rank high despite how rushed it was (and in a tie, no less!).
I didn't have any ideas for the second half admittedly, I just wanted a way to end the level in due time. I know the judges didn't mention it, but I was also too lazy to apply retry so it didn't flow well. Lesson learned, I guess.

Good contest!
This was my first time doing an ALDC entry level. So, I didn't expect to rank pretty high. Oh well, congrats to the winners.

The auto level was difficult to design, so I'll accept that it was fate that I came in 2nd from behind.
Congratulations to all participants.
I am yoshi9429 enjoying Lunar Magic and Touhou Danmakufu ph3 and RPG Maker MV.
Wish I had set aside more time (and ideas) for mine but oh well, I did pretty well. Congrats to the winners! #smw{:TUP:}
Congrats to the winners and participants, baby!

It was so cool seeing ALDC back after so long, and especially fun seeing what people were able to come up with for this contest's gimmick. There's definitely lots of untapped potential and creativity that just needs to be explored in a future contest. I'm all for seeing ALDC again soon!

Thanks to the judges for their all hard work too, every comment on the rushed entry that Bebn and I made is very much appreciated. #smrpg{haha}
What is a Lunar Magic, and can I eat it?
