Mental Kombat Label Contest!

Recommended Posts

/features/MentalKombat/Time to fire up your favorite drawing program again! Since it worked so well the first time around, we figured it was time for another label contest. The subject this time is Simon Quernhorst's Mental Kombat. Mental Kombat is a two player puzzle game based on a concept originally developed by Simon and a friend for the Commodore 64. As with our first label contest, the winner of this contest will receive the first copy of Mental Kombat, numbered #01 and signed by Simon. For more information about the contest and how to enter, please check out the Mental Kombat Label Contest Page. Good luck!

Are there GIF versions of the screen grabs, or a .BIN around somewhere? The JPGs just aren't clean enough to work from.

Best wishes to you Simon.

 

Hope you receive as high-class entries as I did.

 

I surely won't submitt an entry though...

 

(Guess why I started a conntest to find a label for my game... )

 

Say, do you need anyone to playtest the BIN? I'd do a top-secret & secure job in case

 

Greetings,

Manuel

I will take some non-loss screenshots (.bmp) of the game and mail them to Al. He'll post them on the MK-development page afterwards...

 

I'm looking forward to all entries for this label-contest and hope to be able to finish the binary of MK within december.

 

BTW: This is my first post to this messsage-board. Posting this message just brought back memories of calling the C64-BBSes back then using my 2400 Bits/second-modem... ;-)

Wow! The first three entries are great! I really liked that idea with the brains in the bottles. :-)

 

My worst nightmare seems to come true: choosing the winner out of all the amazing entries... ;-)

 

BTW: Is someone able to supply me with a Supercharger or something else to test the binary on a real machine? I want to see it myself on the real 2600 when the game works perfect in z26. I'm told that some bugs may only appear on the original machine. Please contact me via eMail. Thanks!

Unfortunately, I'm using software that's around 7 years old. But that's not going to stop me! The only real trouble I'm having is doing the fonts, but I figure I can find a way to conquer that...

 

I've been wondering, what resolution should the images we send you be?

I hadn't realised, but I'm using Photoshop 3, which would be 6 years old by now. How time flies.

I have use Paint from Windows. I hope my Lable and Endlable are arrived here. But I think I have not much chance, because the most of you have more talent then I.

I just posted uncompressed Mental Kombat screenshots to the game's In Development page. For those of you who are looking to use one of these screenshots in your label, now you have cleaner versions. Thanks to Simon for sending them to me.

I know it is none of my business, but my favorite so far is Jason Parlee #3.

 

They are all damn awesome!

Thanks, that led me to some really interesting game fonts, but the numbers don't match the big 2600 on the top of the main label. Anyone else able to throw up a font name?
