Contest Results [DM02]
As with our first contest, we wanted to thank Phil for allowing us to extend your fantastic game, the creators for taking us back in time with your awesome RETRO maps, and all the players for your plays and votes. Here’s a peek at DM02 by the numbers:
- 9 creators! (up from 6)
- 14 maps! (up from 10)
- 579 votes! (up from 150)
- 844 plays! (up from 240)
On average, each map was played 60 times, by 50 unique individuals, and received 40 ratings. As you can see, the numbers went thru the roof this time around. Thanks to all who participated!
So with that out of the way, it’s time for the big award announcements!
The winner of the People’s Choice Award for DM02 is…
Congratulations to major-pob for “Dr. Frankenstein’s Mansion”! In addition to a Dynamite Jack t-shirt from Phil, we here at Dynamite Maps are happy to award you your choice of a blockbuster game (Portal 1 & 2, Bastion, or Rochard) and Toki Tori!
Additional Award Winners
The “Retro Runner-Up” award goes to yttire for “Saturday Night Fever”. Coming in a close second, this map was one of the most entertaining of the bunch. The only thing missing was the disco ball. For the best ambience, we recommend turning down the lights and turning up the Bee Gees.
The “Stat Champ” award goes to nyf for “…%*#\^…”, a re-imagining of Q-bert! As another map in the running for the PCA, this map managed to grab the most number of plays, players, and ratings. We loved the look, the colors, and the difficulty. Tons of fun!
Finally, while there weren’t as many “Just Jack” maps as we would have liked, we are happy to share the award with yttire for “Mission not as Impossible”. Probably the hardest map of the bunch as evidenced by the few number of votes, this map proved possible but only after numerous deaths…and plenty of cursing
