Good luck guys. I won't be able to start mine till next week (I wish rent was free). But I'll be entering the contest again this year.

I don't feel up for creating a funny short, I would rather make something emotionally crushing.
I wonder if it would still be able to score "entertainment" points. If done right it should be no problem, right?

Also, it says no "Mature" rating but I would still aim to create something for the more mature audience instead of going the random jokes and comedy way. Cartoon Violence is allowed to a certain extend correct? It's not that necessary but I wouldn't wanna go without it.

Looking back It's been a rather sad year and I would really want to express some of these emotions in all of my entries (implying I will make more than one, or one even)

I guess, "no mature rating" means it's fine if it fits under T rating.

And yes, I will participate. I have to make something cool already and become famous and shit.


I need a new sig that fits the new design, but I am too lazy.

Entertainment gauges the emotional response and ability to maintain interest in the viewer, so yes it doesn't have to be funny. I would suggest not doing a comedy, since that's what most people will likely end up doing and it may make your entry stand out more.

Cartoon violence is fine.

Are text to speech programs considered copywritten? Like speakonia or Microsoft Sam?

No I'm not doing anything with clocks or anything like that. It might be used for a 5 second period.

Oops, forgot to post a link to the main site on the first post. If at any point you forget a detail about the Open Round theme / deadline / prize, it's on the Open Round Page: http://nata.munchymedia.com/open/

Yeah I read it. I just wasnt sure if it was just like a prize they give to who ever did the best in the round.

Idea for next year perhaps?

I'm sure this has been answered already, but is there a sign up process or do we just submit our videos to newgrounds when we're done? ._.

Yikes... A NATA attack 'gainst the ignorant, blind, or just plain forgetful (think fun, 'cause I'm eager to try again after completely forgetting most, if not all, while frantically game developing; iz hard but good). To a great first round NATA! To the force!:)
