I know it does, and I made an alternate one with that title, but as you can see:

The title looks better on the Lair of the Night Girl one, so I'm sticking with that.

Yeah... it kinda is....
I kinda forgot about this because I had to deal with stuff IRL. So that's my bad, sorry. I don't think this round was any good anyway, however. We have had only 2 submissions since it started.
I'm just gonna scrap this round, and if anyone is still interested in these contests, I'll start the round again with a new category. I also think if we do start it again, it won't be a title screen everyone would be making for it. I've got an idea or two.

Idiot has agreed to let me take over for Round 3, so here we go!

ROUND THREE

The rules of round three will be very similar to round one, so in the words of idiot...
idiot9.0 wrote:The basics are simple:
1) Go to this link and generate a random game name
2) Make a title screen for it. Dimensions have to be 240x160 px or smaller.

As for judging, I'll be doing that. Clarification, this means me (Camewel) and not idiot. I also want 2 others to volunteer to judge. If you want to judge, you cannot participate in the main contest, so think what you wanna do first.

Also a few more things:
-If you don't like a game name you generate, feel free to re-generate. But don't do it too much just so you can find a good name
-Try keeping your game name secret. If you absolutely have to say it, use the spoiler tags to hide it  like this 
-Because it was done on TSR's thread, I'mma say it here: Don't just post because you generated a funny name and want to say it. Use the chat room if you have to.
Observant people with freakishly good memories will notice I took out the part where there's no prize because this time around, there is a prize!
I will personally make the winning game to the best of my ability (not as a full game though), in the week of spare time I have leading up to uni.
There's even runner up prizes, I'll make little minigames out of the 2nd and 3rd place entries.

Judging will consist of four categories: Design, Creativity, Relevance to Title, and Apparent Fun.

TIMETABLE OF FUNTIMES
April 5th - Closing date for entries
April 7th (or earlier if my judges are fast) - Winners are revealed
April 13th - Winner's games are released

this post lacks any kind of logical ordering but to be fair it is nearly 3AM make me pretty pictures now please thanks

Pretty sure you have done the smoke coming out of the wrong hole.
Trying to inhale from this hole leaves you drinking the supply which gets you kicked out of the den.

Why would you smoke it from a hole without smoke?
Also, yeah, sorry if I sounded like I was poopooing your work, I really like it. It's a great piece. Loving the colour scheme.

Something that I think would benefit the end of this contest is if you create a short description of how you think your game would play and post it under your entry.
That way, when the winner's decided then Camewel has a good idea of how to make the game.

Also Camwell, please don't take how fun or hard to program the game is into consideration when judging. This should be purely art driven and should be judged accordingly. Although you probably already knew that. ;)

do you see a "difficulty for make code" category?
the great thing about the categories is that I can be super objective
oh and judging will be anonymous

You should do that just to fuck with the developers... Though you'd probably get sued for the word saga...

a Game that is literal impossible to complete as you immediately fall flat on your face on each bounce.
The 20th anniversary release was made after discovering you can't play the game at all with this feature so you get 0.0001 frame to jump.

RESULTS

Results will be sorted in reverse order by final score. 10 people entered, and so, the results. All scores are out of 10

10th - QwertymanO07 - Unforgettable BMX Beatdown
Image
Design - 4.6
Creativity - 5.6
Relevance - 8
Fun - 5
Total - 5.8

This entry was criticized for the beatdown happening a distance from the camera, and for not being exactly "unforgettable" as it's just 2 people.

9th - Turret Opera - Fancy Penguin 2: Medieval Penguin Chase
Image
Design - 6
Creativity - 5.6
Relevance - 7.6
Fun - 5.6
Total - 6.2

Turret got critized mainly on not doing enough to live up to the title, some knights chasing a penguin would have made a much more exciting title. Just having a wanted posted doesn't really make it a chase.

8th - SauloFX - The Infernal Duck Hunter
Image
Design - 7
Creativity - 6.6
Relevance - 8.6
Fun - 6.6
Total - 7.2

Although it has a solid foreground, this submission recieved critique on having a very bland solid background. Possibly replacing it with some kind of lava theme (or maybe a park with confused onlookers) would have improved it vastly.

7th - Vyper - Save Yourself from the Chef Quiz
Image
Design - 7.3
Creativity - 8.3
Relevance - 9.3
Fun - 5.6
Total - 7.6

The only real criticism this one recieved was the seemingly random choice of a brick wall for the background. The varied fonts in the title, although unorthodox, recieved praise.

Tied 4th - HugoBDesigner - Neon Shock Kids
Image
Design - 8
Creativity - 7.6
Relevance - 8.6
Fun - 7
Total - 7.8

While recieving praise for the consistant electric theme, it lost a few points on the background (notice a theme?) being just a grey mass. One suggestion was to animate the lightning, although since animated titles weren't required, no points were lost to this.

Tied 4th - Doormat - Angry Laser in my Pocket
Image
Design - 9.6
Creativity - 7.3
Relevance - 8.3
Fun - 6
Total - 7.8

Doormat recieved lots of praise on the lettering, and the attention to detail on the pocket, but lost some points on there being no "anger" in the laser, and not really having any conceivable game.

Tied 4th - renhoek - 20th Anniversary Heavy Pogo
Image
Design - 7.6
Creativity - 8
Relevance - 9.6
Fun - 6
Total - 7.8

Recieving heavy praise for the comedy sink-in the ground effect and making something good from such a dull title, it only fell short on having no actual gameplay and having a rather strange tree shadow.

3rd - Assasin-Kiashi - Soviet Bong Saga
Image
Design - 10
Creativity - 8.3
Relevance - 8.3
Fun - 5
Total - 7.9

This is the only entry that recieved a perfect 10 in any category, and it's not hard to see why. Absolutely beautiful design that fits well in both versions, just a bit lacking in actual gameplay viability.

2nd - Hans1998 - Merciless Hobo from Outer Space
Image
Design - 9
Creativity - 8.3
Relevance - 8.6
Fun - 8
Total - 8.5

Wonderfully neat design with plenty of minor details and fun looking gameplay to boot, Hans's entry was near perfect. The only small critisicm was that it wasn't instantly obvious what was going on, as the knife blends in with the hobo's suit.

1st - Jorichi - Drug Induced Yeti Agent
Image
Design - 9.6
Cretivity - 9.3
Relevance - 9
Fun - 8
Total - 9

Very detailed, brilliantly drawn, insane concept taken to logical extreme for a pretty hilarious title screen. The game instantly looks fun and it's not hard to see how this submission won.

And that's all, folks! Jorichi, as the winner, gets to have their game made (I'm assuming it's going to be some kind of platformer where you have to take drugs and try to assasinate people), and Hans and Kiashi both get their games as minigames (for Hans I'm guessing it's going to be "float around and stab people" and for kiashi I'm sticking with "communist crush saga" as the guess).

Also, thanks to my anonymous judges (you can reveal yourselves if you want, but you don't have to).

Is he trying to save her by putting the blade in the hole to prevent bleeding? (just kidding but that sword is a bit big to make a puncture that small.)

Also I knew I should have re worked that tree shadow... And change the colouring of the tree.

I don't know about you guys, but i had the sudden urge to paste my own idea for a game.

Description: Earth has discovered the power of drugs and starts using them. While doing this the global warming went really high and earthquakes happened more often.
You have to try and stop Earth from using drugs or it's the end of the world!

I was expecting a 2nd or 3rd place at best after seeing the other entries. I guess I got lucky with the title.
I'm excited of what kind of game rolls out of this though!
