    ***ALERT***

    Unfortunately due to poor download numbers reported for the last week and month development on this title has been suspended :(

    We regret that we must also cancel the contest. This is very unfortunate as we were having a very good time and it seemed to have resonate with the community.

    The submission period is now over.

    All prizes for Sept 4, Sept 5, and Sept 6 will be announced and delivered within the next 48 hours.

    No further prizes will be delivered.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Thanks!

    The team @ 6th Mega

    How to play

    1. Play Puff Puff (available on iTunes App Store), OR watch the v 1.0 trailer, OR feast your eyes on the Puff Puff webpage - do SOMETHING to get acquainted with the game!
    2. Submit your creative idea, see YOUR GOAL.
    3. Tweet that you are entering the contest, see MY TWEET.
    4. 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.

    MY TWEET

    After you've posted your outrageously creative idea to the thread, simply copy/paste the below to your Twitter (just once for each day you enter)

    Ok I tweeted. My idea is to have a pool table inside the whales stomach and you can have a couple of puff puff fish playing pool or you can make the puff puff fish be the pool balls and the player can touch one and it'll bounce around and go Into all the pockets.
     
  6. Maybe I'm missing something here, but doesn't the contest start on 9/4? Today is 9/3, assuming that the developer is in the US.

    Racecar bed! I always wanted those when I was little :)

    TV, playing either some TV show parody or a 'commercial' of your others apps, or even Puff Puff. (this might not be counted as 'furniture' though, maybe 'technology'

    Pictures of devs hard at work, snapshots of the main character, can give slight back story to the game.

    Drawers with little creatures living inside of them

    Treasure chest, which opens and closes

    Snowglobe! (Hawaii, Caribbean, etc.)



    Toilets! xD

    I have a good idea!

    There is a little aquarium that floats around. It opens and closes, If you get caught in it, CONSEQUENCES HAPPEN! Like lose a life or lose time? :)

    and I retweeted!

    Kinda love the idea of drawers with little creatures living inside of them, are you thinking it is drawers that have been underwater for sometime and so stuff is growing on them, festering, attracting little creatures... what kind of creatures???

    Awesome glad you like it :) Always thought it would be fun to build a game with the community of players :) Imagine we could build the whole game this way, brainstorming ideas, picking the most exciting, developing them, launching them into the wild, and so on... then eventually we could add level builders so that players could create the actual arrangement and behavior of objects/enemies in the game and the best level makers would have their levels featured and so on..

    Toilet not a bad idea, we could bring in the famous Dada artist Marcel Duchamp's toilet (but not sure if everyone knows their art history and would 'get it'...)

    Well, I guess it depends how cartoonish or casual the level is going to be. If it was more cartoony, I think it'd be cute if a whole family of little hermit crabs, starfish, sea anenomies (sp?), nemos (clown fish), anything really; just has to fit in. If you want it to be more realistic, cause it's in a whale's stomach, maybe something like shrimp or squid. The tiny ones. Either way, I think it'd be cute. :D I would imagine them popping their heads up every once in a while, wondering what that pufferfish is doing.

    Oh, I've seen this before. It's quite interesting, wasn't this kind of a poke at art during that time period? Like a joke or a prank? I think it'd be funny if there's a random toilet floating in a whale's stomach. :D

    How about having reefballs in the whale stomach? Between the holes, lies deep-sea anglerfish and seas snakes which will attack Puff Puff, thus players need to navigate Puff Puff out of the dangers. I just tweet as well.

    The deep-sea anglerfish is already on the to-do list, according to the 'teasers' video under it's website. As well as crazy squids and saws. :eek: I like the reef-ball thing; it looks awesome!
