Hey all,With the Steam Summer Sale 2017 going...

Hey all,

With the Steam Summer Sale 2017 going on, I was thinking about being generous and giving a couple of people some smiles, so why not a competition?

The competition is very simple:
Open up the PlatinumQuest Demo and speedrun one of these two levels: Having a Blast , or , Work in Progress
To prove your time, you must do it on video and upload to YouTube (it can be unlisted).

The top time in each level will award its owner $15 worth of games for Steam, however it only pays out once so you can only receive $15.

In case someone gets top spot for both levels, then the next prize is as follows:
- If it's the same person for 2nd place on both levels, he receives $15
- If it's two different people for 2nd place on both levels, each one receives $10.

The only other rule is that you must have a Steam account in order to participate.
If you win, we'll add each other as friends, tell me the games you want and I'll purchase them for you. No gift cards will be given instead as this prize must be used for the Steam Summer Sale 2017.

The competition begins... now... and ends on the 2nd July. Anyone can play, as long as they have a Steam account.

Good luck to all,
Matan

As a quick FYI, no staff member will be in this competition - only regular members can win.

I'll try speedrunning both levels.

You forget a thousand things everyday. Make sure Marble Blast isn't one of 'em.

I got some really bad news about my case.

That was unexpected, but... I'm forced give up on this PQ Competition.. There are many reasons:

-Fraps is clearly hating me when recording on PQ (too much lags, making the game extremely tough to play especially with the cannons)
-I will probably get humiliated my Rosie, Lee, Radiant and so on...
-My times are really horrible (15.444 on Having a Blast, 46.832 on Work in Progress)

I tried to hope and trust my skills... until Lee's video gave me a kick in the face.

That's why I'll not even try to concurrence the other players and simply abandon this competition. I may get back working on some new custom levels.

So, white flag, everyone.

Don't feel bad, I didn't join this competition since I know there is a big number of players who are far more experienced in Marble Blast than me. Therefore, I wouldn't be into these opportunities like this.

Awesome Hint:

Since the Awesome Time/Score is secret, you will have to beat it in order to find out what it is. Just practice every day, and be ready to keep pressing the 'Restart' button...A LOT!

I said that I don't plan on participating in the competition when I posted the video here. So no need to be humiliated by me haha

The purpose of the video is to help the people who participate. I mean, from my perspective, it seems like there's a tight competition here, so I would like to help out.

Good luck to everyone!

Fun fact, with 3 days remaining we still have no submissions. If you're still interested, have a go!
Edit: actually Randslider has a submission so :)

Yes, frosty. It's not a submission unless I have it.

Hey all, the competition will close in 5:30 hours from this point of posting, mainly because I'll be at work after that point. Winners will be announced when I'm back! If you sent the video (YouTube is recommended), it will be posted, so have it unlisted at the minimum.

I'm giving a try to OBS, but I'm doubtful it could work in my crappy computer.

Edit : Can't install it because of some messed up certificate approbation with plugins I didn't have installed anyway.
