RE: MaGMML2 - Rules + Discussion. JUDGING COMPLETE, GAME SOON (?)!!
Multiple streams does sound best to me, and I really want to be watching them live as well! I watched the MAGMMLC1 results on YouTube after Flashman put it up, but I'd like to be an active participant this time, here's hoping I can be! But yeah, I wouldn't be able to watch a marathon, I couldn't expect him to play one!

Oh gosh, that seems like quite a bit more left to do even after the judging. Don't feel the need to rush, I'm sure everyone can wait.

That also reminds me.... Remember the "stage gauntlet" thing in the first contest? If there's over 80 entries this time around, and assuming each mini-stage has an average of 5 screens... That's over 400 screens to go through. I would assume there wouldn't be a stage rush this time around, it's hard to imagine designing let alone playing that much content in one single stage.

As for the result stream, I'd really want to be able to see my level being revealed live and to interact with the community here, but I have never been able to attend any of Flashman's streams due to the horror of timezone, so I don't think I could really contribute much on the decision in making. Still, I'd encourage to have it break into parts, long streams could really drain a person out.

Awkwardly trying to fit into the community.

There will not be a stage gauntlet. Just....no.

The current plan for Wily 6 does not involve a teleporter hatch room of any kind, just saying.

I don't think anyone will be complaining about that! That would be a marathon for any player...

I only just now found out about this...

Guess I missed the boat this time.


Is this a yearly thing?

Well the time between the first and second contest was less than a year, but pretty much the idea right now is to not have the third one for at least a year. We wanna give it a rest for a while.

Things are probably going to be done differently if there's ever a third, I recall Pyro saying she wanted this to be the last MAGMML she'll host, and the sheer number of entires from this contest... A third contest would probably mean even more stages to comb through and that just feels a bit too daunting a task...

Not yet. The results still have to be revealed, whenever that will be.

Beed I think you misunderstood what mabskmk said. Yes, you can show entries publically now.

RE: MaGMML2 - Rules + Discussion. JUDGING COMPLETE, GAME IN PROGRESS
BIG NEWS: Officially, the results of MaGMML2 will be announced via a series of livestreams, with the first one starting on Saturday, May 20. The exact start time will be decided closer to the date, but expect morning EST (most likely around 10 AM).

I will sample (but not necessarily beat or 100% complete) as many levels as possible within the span of roughly 3 hours, starting with the bottom tier. I will continue sampling levels after a leisurely lunch break on Saturday, and then attempt to finish up on Sunday, May 21 (starting mid-afternoon EST). The goal is to showcase all of the submitted levels by the end of the weekend, and then switch to a more casual "whenever I feel like it" streaming schedule where I work toward 100% completion of the game.

The game itself will become available for download at some point after I finish streaming the results, though an exact release date has not yet been determined. Extensive testing is ongoing, and the bonus content won't be fully implemented by the time I stream the results, so please continue to be patient!

Important Links:
Stream will take place here on Twitch (Follow me to get an e-mail notification when I go live):
https://www.twitch.tv/flashman85

Archived streams will be uploaded here on YouTube, in case you miss anything:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCtAyZh5...V6LVIHWASQ

Further announcements on specific stream times will be posted here:
Official MaGMML2 Discord: https://discord.gg/7332TND
Official Flashman85/GeminiLaser Discord: https://discord.gg/7D7E7m3
Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GeminiLaser
Twitter: https://twitter.com/nathanielhoover

If you still haven't played MaGMML1, you can download it here or watch my archived livestream here (which will give you an idea of how the MaGMML2 announcement livestreams will go). If you're looking for a MaGMML2 appetizer, I streamed a playthrough of the devkit sample levels, which you can watch here.

No matter where you go, there you are.

That's great to hear! Hopefully I can catch the livestreams. Will the trailer for this be premiering before the livestream or at a later time?

My plan is to have the trailer uploaded at around the same time the full game is finished. If I manage to complete it before then or even the streams however, I might be tempted to upload it sooner (provided an official release date is given, that way I can include it there. Or I could just put "coming soon" at the end, but often times I like having actual release dates for these sorts of things).

Hopefully it gets uploaded sooner than anticipated, I think a lot of us have been pretty excited to play this.

I still can't believe how big this game is going to be.

It's in the options in the original devkit already. Press shoot at the title screen for them. The main game has OPTIONS clearly labelled and as a selectable option though.

UPDATE: The announcement livestream series will now start on Saturday, May 20. My previous post has been updated accordingly.

The new plan is to stream for a few hours in the morning (probably starting around 10 AM EST), take a leisurely lunch break, and pick up in the afternoon (probably around 2 PM EST). If I have enough energy and there's enough interest, I may take a leisurely dinner break and resume streaming in the evening (probably around 8 PM EST). Unless I've miraculously sampled all the submitted levels by the end of Saturday, streaming will continue on Sunday afternoon as planned.

Hopefully this will allow me to announce the full results by the end of the weekend without burning out the host or the audience. Lemme know what you think.

No matter where you go, there you are.

Will you play each level in its entirety, attempting to hit every exit, etc?
