It sounds kinda cool a puzzle contest but I feel it may get stale quick.

I think that's why I made it a monthly thing. Plus, each month could have a different theme. Also, puzzles are an important part of any Zelda Classic quest, right? So I think they should deserve their own special contest. That's just me though, obviously.

I think limiting it to themes would appeal only to certain members each time around... better to be freewrite if you ask me

Perhaps we can have puzzle styles too (block puzzle one month, floor-based puzzle the next, etc.).

That's a great idea! There are so many types of puzzles, this won't get boring. :D

What about a contest where you must make a miniquest in 1 week using a certain challenge? For example, one week you have to make a 1 screen quest, in another, you have to make a tower, etc.

A mini quest in one week? That seems like a hard thing to accomplish, at least for me. Quests and miniquests take a while to make. For example, you know the two/three week quest contests? Well, they take that long for a reason. And they usually happen in times when people have free time, such as the summer.

Don't get me wrong; this is an excellent idea; it just that instead of being a quest a week, it should be a quest each month or something like that. :)

2 weeks later contest. Didn't make the deadline for the 2 week quest contest? You now have an extra 2 weeks to finish and polish your quest. Did make the deadline? Polish your quest even more and face off against everybody else again, but with more people :P

If I were to be honest, that kinda defeats the purpose of having a 2 week contest to begin with. I get that it would give an opportunity to those who couldn't make it in time for the original contest, but I don't think it would really be fair to those who worked hard for the first 2 weeks, just to end up having another two weeks.

 

The idea of the contest was for quests to be made in a short timeframe, not with extra time :P

Say, reading through this thread, I still think Puzzle of the Month still has some potential. And to make it engaging, why not make it have a similar setup like Enemy of the Month? We have themes, we do a video showing them off, and we provide download links for people to play with and use. We could throw in themes and requirements if necessary. Themes could consist of "block puzzles", "floor puzzles", "enemy puzzles", "colour puzzles", etc. And people could vote for the most useful, creative and best overall.

 

I say it's worth a shot honestly. It would encourage the community to get together and make puzzles of all kinds, scripted and otherwise, and use them for our projects. If you read above, there seems to be some interest.

I'm still interested in seeing this. I noticed it did get proposed already, and it's definitely getting some attention so I wouldn't mind seeing this happen.

Sorry to rip this thread from its eternal six-foot slumber (or maybe it was cremated?) but I was wondering if this was still a thing. Shane's Puzzle of the Month is a good idea, and I have my own Dungeon of the Month. If you guys are still making official spots for contests, I'd nominate both of these. I'm going to bed now.
