Let's get this party started again!

Summary
All competitors have roughly one year to complete a very large level for Knytt Stories (or any of its currently supported mods). Winners will receive gift codes for games on Steam (or another platform, negotiable) for up to varying values (details below), along with other possible prizes. In order to qualify, all submitted levels must have at least 300 unique screens, in addition to other more minor rules posted below.

The deadline is December 21, 2017, at 11:59 PM UTC.

I'm so happy to see this! My stockpile of unused game keys is even huger than when I ran this before, so I'd be glad to contribute some if desired. But for now, it's time to start thinking about what I might want to make.

Exciting!  I suppose this would be an effective motivation to pull together my current level's development and finish it.  I could enter Deep Freeze itself, but it's over a year old by now, and it wouldn't even come close to making the size requirements.  :P2

Awesome! I already had an idea for my new level, this is the motivation I needed. Good luck everyone!

Sounds like a really neat idea. Unfortunately for me, making large sized levels is not my cup of tea, as I already have too many unfinished game projects (although most of them are non-KS related). I might change my mind if I can think of something both interesting and manageable, though. Either way, I'm looking forward to seeing what you guys come up for this :)

Whoa, 300 unique screens! That's a heck of a lot. Is there any easy way to count how many screens are in a level? (Like, with a program or something?)

Yes, but only the one with the higher score will be counted. (i.e. you can't have two or more levels in the final running)

I was wondering how to do that myself. I did a search on the forums and found out about this tool. It shows the number of filled screens in the status bar when you open a KS level.

Just as I come back to the forum, something interesting starts happening. ...As soon as I have access to a Windows PC, I'll start a level.

I've been thinking for a while of doing over my old level, 'Eurydice', to smooth out some of the kinks, but the more I've thought of it, the more it's become less of a going over and more of a total remake in my head, with new sequences, new bits of story and a lot less backtracking. If I do decide to work on that next and somehow complete it within this deadline, would I be penalised for remaking an old level from scratch instead of making something totally new?

No sir. You would not be penalized at all. Go for it.

So long as you are willing to share the prize.
