Maybe the Karaoke contest isn’t a good idea since no one sent anything… so what else can anyone participate in… Well how about a Audiosurf competition since the game is cheap (only costs $10 off Steam) and can play on any computer. Perhaps some Anime Bloggers already have Audiosurf on their machines already. Readers can also participate as long they hade a valid email address and a Melative and/or MAL account.
More details below…
My idea is to have the bloggers vote on 3 good songs (OP/ED) from the Fall 2009 season or within the Fall 2009 season (September 1 and on) which everyone will play. Then, everyone post the screenshot of the results screen and submit them to me and I will make a chart comparing all the scores and find out who is the winner. If you don’t know what is Audiosurf, it’s a rhythm-puzzle game that involves matching up blocks so you get points.
Here is some examples:
With a Mono character:
A Puzzle Character:
Before starting the contest, we first need to agree on 3 songs for everyone to play. Once we choose them, everyone participating must play these songs in Audiosurf and take a screenshot of the results screen (using FRAPS or some other program) and submit them to me. Then I will determine who is the winner.
The rules are simple. For casual, you can only play Mono with Ironmode on. In Pro level, you can only use any of the puzzle characters with Ironmode off (Vegas, Eraser, Pointman Pro, Pusher, DV Pro). The levels will be graded separate, so everyone will be a fair chance.
Deadline to suggesting songs will be on December 11th and the contest will start on Dec 12th until the 30th. This will give you plenty time to perfect your runs and submit the results.
Bloggers can additionally suggest songs below (no links to them please) if they already have a blog. Please spread the word this time. I will have a dedicated site for real up this time. Once the selection process is done, you may get started by playing the selected song. You need to make a copy of the music file and add a space and [AAS-Holiday09] afterwards. For more information, see the Anime Audiosurf Competition page.
Update: Song suggestion is now closed. See the next post for contest details.
