New Site, FCR Integration, BIG CONTEST!

Postby weasel on Fri Feb 27, 2009 9:45 am

Hey Everyone!

Normally I wouldn't be posting this early but as luck would have it I'm going to be away from a computer for the rest of the day. So let's all pretend this is being posted, oh, let's say around MIDNIGHT, today. :ssh:

(PST)

After being taunted and teased by that big contest button on the bottom of the site for ages, we have finally launched the new site!

:waterrod: The main page has been redesigned to look way cooler and much more presentable. The ads (if unregistered) are spaced nicely on the side and we made sure the game fits in most monitors without having to scroll. This was mainly done for the next point...

:waterrod: We have to hand it to SK89Q - his FCResource was so amazing I don't know how the game ever got along without it. We now have the FCResource fully integrated into the Fantastic Experience. For those not familiar, it is a browser-based level browser, complete with little thumbnails of level previews, and advanced level editor, and even automated contest scoring!

:waterrod: Along with the FCResource is the Fantastic Wiki, which contains a lot of information on badges and even the history behind some of the first 21 levels. It's a community resource, so feel free to edit it up and have some fun with it!

:waterrod: The game has been updated to include the additional 21 iPhone levels for paid users!

:waterrod: And finally.. the big news... THE FANTASTIC CONTEST IS LIVE! It is based on the Officially Haphazard contests but the scoring has been adjusted to play out a bit easier for everyone. Check out the contest button for all the rules and entry information.. there will be TEN grand prize winners, EACH WINNING A FREE iPOD TOUCH!! (Pre-loaded with the FC Game of course!) :monocle: The contest is open to all users, paid or unpaid. Check out the discussion thread here: viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5228

<3 to all the loyal fans out there. Keep on building!

More free levels means LOTS of badges to earn for them and records to make and break,

[shameless smack talk]Thank goodness there are 10 grand prizes... I mean, my odds of winning a single grand prize were probably only around 75%... now that there are 10, i'm almost guaranteed an ipod touch[/shameless smack talk]


all joking aside, great work to the FC team. Looking forward to seeing the new site and the contest!

Update to the update.

Alright, sorry about this folks. We're pushing off the release till "sometime today" which may well mean midnight tonight (in whatever timezone midnight happens to be last in).

But the new levels are free for all again. As is the contest.

Sorry about that, we just can't make up our minds!
