Submit your creative idea, see YOUR GOAL. Tweet that you are entering the contest, see MY TWEET. Pray we chose your idea!! CONTEST DESCRIPTION Puff Puff -- September Mega Madness is an invitation for you to join the fun process of brainstorming the next big update to Puff Puff. For those of you who skipped #1 above, Puff Puff is an arcade game where you control a spiny puffer fish through underwater worlds, avoiding dangers and enemies. We started with a coral reef where you avoid tiger sharks and just launched Gulf Spill, the jaw dropping underwater world of deep sea drilling where you come face to face with oil globs, broken pipes, and Robo Subs. Now we want to add a hidden board, where players get gobbled up by a whale leaving you to navigate out of his belly and dealing with all the things trapped in there. YOUR GOAL Each day you want to enter, submit creative ideas, images, sketches, photos, whatever form you want to use to express your creative idea of what you think should be trapped inside of the whale's belly that the player has to contend with! Each day will be a different theme. We are going to decide on the winner each day based simply on what seems the coolest. Each day will conclude at 6pm PST. Winners will be announced within 24 hours after the end of that day. Prizes will be delivered within 48 hours of the end of that day. VOTING & JUDGES There isn't going to be any voting but we'll be part of the conversation and definitely take into mind the thoughts of the community. We also can't promise we'll use any of ideas or actual images BUT we are looking to collaborate with you and HAVE A LOT OF FUN creating this next level and will very very very very very likely use the results of this contest to inform our product design. PRIZES Each day we'll give out $10.00 iTunes gift card to the winner. (or PayPal if we can't give iTunes GC outside U.S.) for the duration of the contest (rest of September, 2010). If game sales increase (for whatever reason) and we have more budget we'll start adding on to the contest. So check back often to see prize amounts for that day.
