paintown character creation competition
We are starting a Paintown character creation compition, the 3 best user submitted characters will be added to the main svn repo for the game and in the main release, the creators name will also be added to the credits. If your character is the best and really, really good you will get a cash prize of 50$ plus Jon Rafkind will personally send you a prize (surprise) I am also personally throwing down cash for this prize as well.
The rules are simple:
1. The character must have a special attack
2. The character must move fluently and not skip
3. The character must not look like absolute crap
4. The character must work on PC/PS3/WII consoles If you dont have a wii thats fine we will be able to test it
5. I'm excluded from submitting
personally I wouldnt worry about #4 if it works on your PS3 it will more than likely work on the WII as well.
PLEASE SEE THIS THREAD FOR MAJOR HELP!
