Note to submitters:

Entrants who did not make the shortlist are now able to freely modify their submissions and take onboard any player feedback.

We want to encourage everyone despite not making it in the top 10 to keep working on your levels or new levels. The contest results are simply a review of the work at this moment. It doesn’t say anything about your future quality of work or pursuing a career as a professional level designer. We hope you enjoyed the contest and we are looking forward to seeing more of your levels in the future!

Finalists must not alter their submission until the expert voting period has concluded and winners are announced.
