Announcing "Goddess' Map of the Week" contest!
Every week, we're going to highlight a user made map that catches our fancy and has been made popular by the community. The winner will receive a Half Minute Hero digital watch! Start building, playing, and voting for all of your awesome maps!

Rules:
  • You can only win once.
  • The winner will be selected by The Time Goddess from the top five most popular maps of that week every Wednesday (Japan time).
  • If the same five maps are still at the top the following week, the winner will be chosen from the remaining contestants who have not yet won.
  • If there are no new maps and all of the top five maps have already won in a given week, there will be no prize that week.
  • Winners will be friended on Steam to exchange mailing information.
  • Good luck!

This week's winner is the awesome "Deja Vu" map from Boo!

Question: Are these watches an exclusive prize handed out to contest winners, or are they purchasable through the HMH web store?

Not purchasable anywhere.

Crud. If it weren't for my living situation last year when you offered me one of those watches, I would have jumped on one of those right away.

Mind if I give a suggestion for the following weeks? Instead of choosing the winner from the top 5, I think it would be better to choose the winner from all NEW maps.
This has 2 advantages, first of all, nobody can say it wasn't fair (nobody can hold contests, bribe people or use their popularity to get a better chance at winning).
The second advantage is that it promotes creativity. It will push people to make new, good maps. This is something that the game can really use.

Coupled with the new rules, this could be a huge benefit. Even if people take down their old maps and re post they lose all past votes.

That's a great idea! I'll update the rules!

Well, I worked on a map for 4 days, got it submitted on Tuesday, and this rule is now implemented.


Great.

Sorry...

You have a few weeks to go.
Matirion Maeronta Apr 23 @ 12:42pm 
So basically... You complain that the feedback given by the players had an effect?
Multi Apr 23 @ 2:10pm 
If anything, this should help you Slur. Your maps are good, and it will prove to the community your one the best now.

The rules have been updated. Next week, ALL existing maps from users who haven't won will be eligible.
