I would like to point out that I do like the spike ridden fangames, except only the ones with at least somewhat original jump ideas and sprites. If both are not present, I'll tolerate it.

Not saying that they're good.

That's actually one of the more interesting aspects, people seeing something new in what, on a superficial level, seems like more and more and more of the exact same thing.

It doesn't really matter whether or not a game is "good", the important thing is why it is. And if you get enjoyment out of obscure spike jumps, then that's a plus if you can explain it well enough.

At least that's my attitude when going about judging stuff.

I'd be glad to be a judge if I can be useful. I like games that people put work into, but I can also enjoy needle games. I'm horrible at them, though.

A fangame contest sounds really interesting. I guess I would participate as a game developer depending on how the rules for the games look like.

Sounds like a cool idea. Who's putting up the money for the prize?
Also is this only for new fangames rather than ones that have already been made?
I will be following this with interest.

I plan on ponying up the $100 myself. It's a one-time expense for the year, so it's not like it will bankrupt me.

I'm leaning toward this being for new fangames only, but I do plan on giving like 4 months for people to develop their games, so I might let a few older games slide.

I'd love to be a judge, but, I'm making my own fangame, so I think it would be a little bit unethical of me to both make a fangame, and also enter as a judge for a contest--Regarding fangames.

Hopefully this contest would get people to put some effort in their fangames. I would definitly sign up as a developer if and when this happens.

hmm, I have a group of friends that have been working collectively on a fangame using the Mario Bros X engine, would that be eligible for this contest? If so, I could get in touch with them, as I'm a level designer for it.

 If not, then I would like to offer my services as a judge, unless you already have enough people.

This smells interesting. However I don't have a youtube account so I can't participate.

I don't care what engine is used to develop the fangame, so I don't see any reason why that would be ineligible.

Creating a YouTube account isn't difficult. If you have a Google account, then you can create one no problem. I'm also fine if you make your video response private.
