Some people are like slinkies... not really good for anything, but you still can't help smiling when you shove them down the stairs.

In a contest or 'call to contributions' you should assume that this is the first time the reader finds out about the game.

Best to include links to the game page and instructions on how to use editor. Guidelines would help as well (level length?)

IMHO self-voting should be prohibited, even if you think yours is best.

Lists should be formatted as lists.
(fyi: you can edit your post)

PS: this might be irrelevant if this is not the main announcement and there is a blog post with the stuff I mentioned that can be used to spread the word.

It only violates about half of the guidelines so it's at least marginally compliant. It only takes 4 lives to clear it after a lot of practice so it's not impossible. If your kids enjoy a good spanking, they'll also enjoy this! :p

Go amuzen! the first level!
it is a hard level you are right, but fun. I personally couldn't beat it probably because of differences from 3.3 and svn in the hidden block physics. overall though, it was a fun level(i love a good challenge) but you might want to change it to be a bit more snowy since that is the theme.

Speaking of the difference between 0.3.3 and SVN, is there any sort of requirement for the contest? Unfortunately the two have significantly different performance which could result in some heavy confusion. I would imagine that the level would need to play well in SVN in order to be considered for Incubator Island, but 0.3.3 is more readily available and would result in more participation. Voting could be complicated as well since levels could utterly fail in one version and be exceptional in the other.

After the contest is done, I'll go ahead and package the submissions as an add-on so that people can enjoy participants hard work.

Here is my submission called "Primed for Action". It works fine in 0.3.3 but badguy interaction is cleaner in 0.3.3-SVN. It's a little longer than I originally wanted and also suffers from multiple layers of nerd which I apologize for. I'd say the level difficulty is moderate to mildly difficult depending on if you figure out the primary trick, but as the author my assessment of difficulty doesn't mean beans. Enjoy.

Nice level SuperMat. It's a bit short, but fun.

Alright, here are all the entries of the contest on one worldmap. I designed the map to be expandable for future contests and used some elements that might make it more interesting. It's a standard add-on package, so just drop the zip file in the "supertux2" or "data" directory and access through the "Contrib Levels" menu. Hopefully we'll get more participants for the next one.

feel free to share your level ideas.
also, maybe try wine http://www.winehq.org/ to run Supertux?

Wine is not really an option in OS X, it doesn't work well enough without much effort, and the problem here is that the editor has a dependency that makes no sense in the current version of Mono.

Still, one could try to add the gtk dependency using macports but I haven't tried it yet, it was on my "Next thing to test out" list :)
