It's time to start up the second contest idea I had in mind. Starting today, you may start planning for this, the Media-Inspired Dungeon.

The rules are simply as stated in the topic I made a couple weeks ago.


CONTEST 2:
Media-Inspired Dungeon

Create a dungeon that is inspired by something created in media. This means it could be inspired by a video game, movie, tv show, bible story, fairy tale, mythology, a franchise of stories, etc... Ask if you have any questions.

Planning ends on September 7th.

Contest ends on September 30th.

Hmmm, I've got an idea for a dungeon inspired by a zone in Sonic Mania that might work for this. I say this now, but I feel like 3 weeks is more than enough time for one dungeon, right? Right?

bible story

mythology


Oh, why must you tempt me so? I absolutely don't have time for this with school... and yet I want to enter so badly...

I may see if I can come up with something short like my 24 hour entry. Maybe. Absolutely no guarantees. But it's so tempting...

I can't feel the hype right now :O I think you should post defined and well thought-out rules. For example, can I just make a typical zelda dungeon and say it's inspired by the zelda series? Does the dungeon even have to be playable?

It needs to be based on something more specific, but yeah, Zelda is media.

Yes. It needs to be playable.

Yes. It needs to be playable.

 

If I narrow it down to one specific zelda game, like A Link Between Worlds, does that count? If I'd try to aim for that game's dungeon style maybe. Also, "based on" is a little more serious than "inspired by". I guess we should base our dungeons on the chosen media then? What if I wanted to go for a more subtle inspiration, where it wouldn't be obvious what my inspiration was until I spell it out?

 

Also, I'm having the same problem as with EotM right now. Can't think of an idea. xD If I get one though, I'll enter.

Yeah. I used the word inspired because I feel it gives creators more liberty on how strong or loose the inspiration is. And yeah, basing it off one Zelda game would be fine. In most cases, I would say an entire franchise. But in this case, since we are using a Zelda program, I feel doing that is basically too much liberty. Especially since the games in the series are so different.

I understand. I have a ton of ideas. But I probably won't finish any. If I do it'll probably be based on Sweeney Todd, or something Stephen Kingy.

I am still here. I live in Florida and got hit by the eyewall of Irma. So our power's out. It should be back on soon.

If anyone has anything just message me the submissions. I intend to be back in time to post up the contest.

Thanks. It wasn't too bad for my house.

Also, I have one submission so far. As long as I can get one more by the deadline, I will continue the contest on the 1st.

I don't intend to do another one after this. I'm not around at all. If I come back around and it's liked well enough, I'll be more than happy to come up with more ideas.
