The time has come to vote on the games submitted for the Ridiculous Games Contest of 2010. Without any adieu, here are this year's entries:

Quote:
All the Games by Barnabus
http://www.slimesalad.com/forum/viewgame.php?t=3576

Automagically! Bizzaro Carnival in Salad Kingdom by Spoonweaver
http://www.slimesalad.com/forum/viewgame.php?t=3538

Danse Danse Whale: Total War by Blue Train, J_Taylor, Momoka, Spoonweaver
http://www.slimesalad.com/forum/viewgame.php?t=3537

Duck by JSH357
http://www.slimesalad.com/forum/viewgame.php?t=3535

Field of Dwarves and Endless Dreams by Twinconclusive
http://www.slimesalad.com/forum/viewgame.php?t=3573

Meh. by Fenrir-Lunaris
http://www.slimesalad.com/forum/viewgame.php?t=3568

Mr. The Hamster's Math Class by James Paige
http://www.slimesalad.com/forum/viewgame.php?t=3569

Puckamon by FnrrfYgmSchnish
http://www.slimesalad.com/forum/viewgame.php?t=3572

Yo Ghost RGC Edition by Sh4d0ws
http://www.castleparadox.com/gamelist-display.php?game=1006


Anyone may vote on the games, and may rate each one on a scale of 1 (awful/unplayable) to 10 (best ). You may have games that have identical scores, if you so choose. What constitutes a bad or good "ridiculous" game is your decision, as is the nature of the contest. Based on the theme of this contest, you must take into account whether the game's creator successfully created a ridiculous game, HOWEVER, I will not be checking to see whether your score is an accurate reflection of that, or upon what other criteria you have for voting the way you've chosen. As always, comments on each submission are welcome and ultimately helpful to the contestants. Your score sheet should look something like this:

Quote:
Scorecard:
Put on socks - 2
Put on pants - 8
Salom Lancoven: Attourney at Law - 4
Cross the street - 10
Barely Legal Seals - 1
Wandering YOU FOUND THE SECRET WORD! - 2


If you fail to vote on any one game, I will assume you DID NOT play it, and accordingly give it an automatic score of 3. If enough people fail to play one particular game, it may quickly rise to the top of the voting and be a declared the winner. Consequently, it is in your own interests to play each game, even if only for a little bit, so you can judge it yourself.

Since nobody was late/early, there is no penalty this time for late or early submissions. Next time perhaps.

People who are NOT regular OHRRPGCE game creators are free to join AND vote. This means that PEOPLE FROM OUTSIDE THE INCLUSIVE COMMUNITY ARE FREE TO JOIN IN THE FUN. I fully expect outsiders to rock this contest to its foundation. Unlike previous contests, REGISTRATION ON ONE OF THE FORUMS IS NOT A REQUIREMENT. Total strangers may now participate in the fun.

You may only vote ONCE. Yes, you can vote for your own game. I will officially be taking your votes on a thread to be created at some point in the future in Castle Paradox, and on the Surlaw home of Squids and Walruses, and also on Slime Salad, since some of the entrants may be exclusive to one or the other. I will also be taking Emails at xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx, and ALSO through my AiM screenname (xxxxxxxxxxxxx). Voting shall begin from the instant you see this post and will end on the 14th of May, to allow people enough time to play the games and vote on them.

The game with the MOST points on the 14th of May wins, and its creator gets a -PRIZE-!!


PRIZES!!

The point values that each game receives will translate directly into larger and larger amounts of $limebucks on Slime Salad. These values shall forever remain hidden, although you can be pretty sure the participants who jumped into this are going to absolutely dominate every other participant in future Slime Salad battles (active OHRers rock). As an added bonus, and because EVERYONE IS A WINNER, everyone will get an amount.

The GRAND PRIZE winner will receive either a cash payment (or equivalent Paypal), AND/OR their game featured as a cover of Hamsterspeak Magazine (at some point, you know how these things go).

Because Castle Paradox offers no such point-money system like Slimesalad does, Games released here for the contest are eligible for the GRAND PRIZE ONLY. Unfortunately since this only applies to one person this time around (you know who you are), should they win, I'll coordinate with them for a suitable bonus.

Good luck, and godspeed you kings of the internet.

Oh, didn't realise voting closes today. I've been waiting for Moogle to fix the download for Barnabus's games, but I guess I'll have to download them each separately.

So...Since no one voted...Is it a massive tie for first, or what? I would've voted but I only played Puckamon and Yo Ghost RGC. Maybe an extension?

After having thoroughly discussed the issue with a number of people, I have decided to extend the period for actual voting by two weeks. You now have until EXACTLY May 28th, 11:59 PM Central Time to get me your votes on whichever games you wanted to vote on. The results will still be published in the upcoming Hamsterspeak Magazine.

So get in your votes before then!

You lazy slackers

We're voting here?

I thought the Slime Salad thread was the voting ... er ... rating anyway.

The idea is that people who don't frequent Slime Salad should vote here. Of course, there's nothing wrong with cross-posting your votes.

Sadly I did not finish playing all the games. But fear not! My votes are on the officially sanctioned scale of 1-10, with 1 being worst, 10 being best, and 3 being average:

Barnabus * 30 - 7 points
Bonus points for randomly generating messages based on the hash of a user drawn image. Hardcore.

Danse Danse Whale: Total War by Blue Train, J_Taylor, Momoka, Spoonweaver - 2.45 points

Duck by JSH357 - 6.2 points
JSH said it was not intended to be necessary to play the Duck games to enjoy this, but I still thought I missed out on tonnes.

Meh. by Fenrir-Lunaris - √ 2 points
meh.

Mr. The Hamster's Math Class by James Paige - π points
Entered for the wrong contest! That's fairly ridiculous!

Yo Ghost RGC Edition by Sh4d0ws - 3.01 points
'cause.
