Hey everyone!

It's finally time! Thank you guys for making this group what it is, for submitting all your wonderful artworks and accepting my invitations and for joining by yourselves!

I have said it from the start, once we reach 100 members I will hold the Gamer's NESt's very first contest. So let's get rolling!
Keep in mind that this is a members celebration contest and therefor you need to be a member in order to enter. If you are not a member then have no fear, simply join us and you'll be able to enter. :dummy:


                                      :icongamers-nest: presents!
:iconpiranhaplantplz:CONTEST THEME: Now you're playing with power!:iconpiranhaplantplz:

These contests will always be about this group's main focus: the NES. For our first contest ever the topic will be NES characters playing their own games.

So what does this mean for the entries?
:bulletblue: The character can be playing any game he is in as long as it is on the NES! You can have mario play Dr. Mario but I do not want to see Mario play Mario 64! NES games only!
This also means I will disqualify those who draw the Wii saying the character is playing the Virtual console or playing roms on the pc. ONLY the original NES and the Top Loader will be accepted!
:bulletblue: Be creative, how many people will use Mario or Link? Try digging a bit deeper than the usual iconic heroes.
:bulletblue: NTSC, PAL and FAMICOM characters are all allowed!
:bulletblue: When I say 'playing their own games' I mean on a tv with the console in front of them and not simply 'playing soccer' or something like that while being in their respective universes. :paranoid:
:bulletblue: Keep it clean, no gore and no sexual things, no furries nor yoai like stated in the group's rules.

Means allowed
:bulletgreen: Digital and Traditionnal art
:bulletgreen: Self made crafts such as figurines and dioramas
:bulletgreen: Pixel Art
:bulletred: No written works or poetry!

Deadline is August 31st
deadline exstension might be given when asked for with a valid reason

The NES games offered to pick from for this contest:
:bulletorange: Ducktales 1 (Cartridge only)
:bulletorange: The legend of Prince Valiant (PAL ONLY release / Cartridge only)
:bulletorange: Isolated Warrior (Cartridge only)


:bulletpurple: The wonderful 'Ducktales 1'! It's not in my top 10 favourite NES games but it definitely IS one of the best ones out there. Less good than the more rare Ducktales 2 but in my opinion the superior game.

:bulletpurple: A PAL only game, it was only released here in Europe and would be a great addition for the real collectors out there. 'The legend of Prince Valiant' is a great side scrolling game. It follows the first season of the cartoon show about an exiled knight's quest to become a knight of the Round Table.

:bulletpurple: A nice little oddity. 'Isolated Warrior' is an isometric point of view rail gun shooter where you play as a dude running instead of the standard spaceship stuff. It's hard as hell and a nice way to get angry when you need to. XD

:icondangerplz: I live in Europe, these games from the list are PAL ONLY games, you can only play them if you live in Europe, have the model 2 (Toploader) or if you have a converter! They are all tested and obviously work perfectly.I'll try my best for future contests to get my hands on some NTSC carts as well.
