Till the end of December:
I challenge you to make something new out of Cave Story, something nobody has ever seen in a Cave Story mod.
It can be obscure, or truely spectactular, depending on your tastes

Dates: (Dates are subject to change)
January 15th (Or sooner, depending on how fast the entries are submitted) : Deadline for Competition
January 16th(or 17th?): Voting begins
January 20th: Winner announced
January 21th, 12 A.M.: Reward Time


Rules:
1. It has to a mod of the origial Cave Story game.
2.The mod must be original (It can not be done before.).
3. No pre-existing, already completed(Before 12/15/14) mods
4.Any mod released (complete or not) before the start of the competition cannot qualify in this competition.



Scoring(out of 100 points):
20 points are for completeness: if the submission was clearly rushed it will lose points (up to 5). Similarly, if the submission suddenly drops off or turns into the original Cave Story without explanation, points will be lost (up to 5). Points will be lost (up to 10) for not having at least one complete section of the submission finished - in a challenge-type mod, one level may suffice for this. In a more story-oriented mod, a clear section or area must have been completed.

20 points for neatness: 3 points will be lost for every major error in the submission. 1 point will be lost for every minor error.

30 points for creativity: This is hard to gauge, and so will be determined from the average from a small panel of judges (judges TBD).

The final 30 points are from a percentage of how many people liked the submission out of how many people voted. This will be determined in a poll, in which one can select multiple options, in January.

Sugestions(First come, first serve)
1.Chicken Story
2.Pokemon Story
3.Whatever Story

The Prize
The winner gets to be the center of attention for an hour.

Now go and spread your joy to the world!

Mind explaining why we can't submit a mod that is unique and creative that has also had tons of work put into it for this contest for the best-made unique and creative mod?

Okay fine, you can do this, but it must not have been fully completed before this contest started. (But what I really wanted was to see some new mods that are created just for the sake of this competition.)

Another note you might have missed: I highly doubt you would want something worked on for about a year to be "completed" this month and count towards this.

The Carnage Clash, the mod I've been working on, is as unique as you can get, but that would be unfair to those who would join this with 15 days left to create something.

Sure, you can't really test to see if someone cheated in this way, but it still is an issue you could address as well.

AKA There should probably be a rule against things started before today, even though you can't effectively enforce that.

Completely understandable. But I mean, if we fit the bill, we might as well be able to submit. I want to see unique mods too, trust me. That's the whole reason we're making Ama; we want it to not be a Cave Story.
