Contest: Mini Game!

This contest has ended. Thank you for all your great entries. Please check out the winners and highlighted entries below!

Welcome to the 28th official Principia Building Contest!

The topic of the week is to create a mini game! How the game works, how the player scores and everything else is completely up to you. It can be Lua based or pure mechanical. It can be simple and fun or it can be advanced and require focus. Whatever your idea of a good mini game is, create it! If you want other players to post their score of your level you can enable the highscore system in level properties.

You have until next Wednesday (November 12) to submit your entry. The winner receives a Golden Trophy and the runner up gets a Silver Trophy! There's also a chance for well made entries to be featured on the front page. Good luck!

  • sjoerd19992: @JJROckER: But if you like Principia and really want a colored name, I'm sure you could still donate some money by contacting Pajlada or Sdac and get a nice fancy color. But that's up to you
  • sjoerd19992: @JJROckER: You can't, RED is administrator like Pajlada and Sdac, GREEN is moderator. They work for Bithack. Bithack also had a money-fundraising campaign, were you could buy a VIP-status, with colored names, like ZardOz did. But the campaign is over now.
