NEAR DEADline - Art Contest (Steam Release) (ENDED)

Posted by NickConter - August 12th, 2020


Exactly one year ago I released NEAR DEADline, a game where you gotta keep an animator awake for 5 days to finish his deadline, and on that same date I announced an Art Contest on Newgrounds, now that we’re gonna release the game on Steam I thought it was time to have another one, so here’s the deal:

Rules

  • Draw using the menu of the game (preferably the Steam version)
  • Save it with the Camera icon (careful with the Clear icon, I heard in the past that some people lost drawings because of that)
  • Tweet it with the hashtag #NEARDEADline to submit it


Guidelines

  • The drawing doesn’t have to be related to the game
  • Keep it SFW
  • Must be made in the main menu using its limited palettes provided in-game
  • You can submit as many drawings as you want, just remember that “Quality > Quantity”


Judging 

The judging will be done by Brandon, Mike, and myself and here’s the things that we keep in mind:

  • Creativity (by that I mean how you use the brush of the game)
  • That’s it


Prize Money

  • 1st - $80
  • 2nd - $60
  • 3rd - $30
  • 4th - $15
  • 5th - $15


Deadline (heh)

  • August 31st
  • I’ll send the prize money through Paypal so make sure you have one


Here's last year's winners if you want to get an idea (@irri @Frenchporkybuns and @heyopc)

Cool :D

Sounds gucci

I was a fool, and lost my first work by pressing the space bar and kicking off story mode. I was, however, a persistent fool, and so I did it again and submitted it. This truly simulated the "harsh deadline on a computer that could crash at any moment from an errant keystroke" feeling. Fun!

Ummm, when you start the game, you can lose and go back to the menu, and the drawing is still gonna be there :P
Still congrats on being persistent.

@Skoops exactly what nick said: when coding the game I did the same thing, got so pissed i made it a feature that the drawing stays in the menu when you get back!

@NickConter aaaah, good to know.
