Pico Punchout!?
- Last MAC we made themes for Pico and friends and other related characters. This was for

flash authors to have a collection of songs to use and co-ordinate around if they wanted,

giving them a solid month at least if they wanted to use anything. This MAC it's OUR turn to

celebrate Pico Day OUR way. By making him Pico Tributes!

Who is Pico? (straight out from the previous MAC :D!)

Pico is the face of Newgrounds! Been

around longer then most whipper snappers reading this. Thats right, GET OFF NEWGROUND'S LAWN!!! YOU BASTURDS, HE'S AN IMMORTAL LIL JERK THAT CAN KILL U ALL!

If you are new to Pico (GTFO!), view the collection to get a good understanding of what he is

percieved as and who you think he is. Pico is described as a quiet, but fully murderous capable

child who can kick ass and kick it hard if need be.

For this reason making a tribute to him can be hard. Notice I said tribute, not theme. Tribute anything about him that you like. Perhaps you like his silent goofy, couldn't care less attitude. Perhaps you like his headshot abilities. Pick something about Pico which peaks your interest, and FOCUS!

About the Contest this month
- The contest has no set theme/genre. You can take any aspect of pico and express it any way you want. Don't limit yourself, stay creative!

- You will recieve a harder judgement if your contest submission(s) are not new, or designed for the MAC. If it's more then 6 months old, really you're just wasting your time.

- Alot of flash-artists have shown to have alot of usage for these two genres, and since the

MAC have grown fairly big on NG, it's good extra exposure for your audio.

Awards
1st) $100 + Shirt
2nd) $100 + shirt
3rd) $100 + shirt
4th) shirt
5th) shirt
6th-) mockery

- Front Page Spots for the top four songs!

- Hopefully somebody will help make a sig for us! If you're interested in lending a photoshopping hand, let us know!

- The winners will be announced by the bastardized and constantly drunk radiogrounds.com DJ PsychoGoldfish as

usual!

Entering the Contest, Basic Rules
1 - Check the Rules for Submitting

Audio to the NGAP. If you still are unsure what's OK to upload and what's not, check this thread. Basically, you must

not submit material that include samples you have no copyright/permission to use.

2 - Make a song according to these rules! Your song(s) can be as long as you wish,

remember that NG now has an 8 meg. limit for each song!

3 - Submit the song to the NG Audio Portal.

4 - Go to this thread and post a link to your songpage. You risk not getting on

the list of submissions if you do not post links to your songs. Also include the audio title.

5 - POST YOUR SUBMISSIONS IN THIS THREAD, TALK ABOUT BLASPHEMY AND CRAP IN THE DISCUSSION THREAD! (You are allowed to talk about WIP's there if you'd like)

6 - Do not break any of the rules stated in this thread. If you intend on submitting

with different profiles, notify Maestrorage or Rucklo about this. If we find out that you

break the rules, you risk being disqualified from this contest. Depending on how serious your

actions are, you might get banned from the contest for some time. Basic BBS rules apply in this thread too, of

course. If there are posts that are irrelevant for the contest/spam, a moderator will clean it

up. This mean your post(s) might get deleted, and you risk getting banned from the NG BBS. All

according to the BBS rules and the forum

specific Audio Forum rules.

7 - You should have your submission signed up for the contest in this thread by

22nd of April. If you cannot post for one reason or another, PM or e-mail maestrorage or Rucklo, enter a valid reason why you can't

do it yourself, and we'll see to it that your contest entry is in. To make it even clearer;

- No submissions will be accepted when April 22nd is up.

8 - It is now possible to update songs one have submitted to the contest, and it is

allowed to do so. However, when April 22nd is up, no more updates are allowed. The songs will

be downloaded by this time, and distributed amongst the judges (or if they choose to download

the songs themselves) to avoid the risk of somone updating the song post deadline.

9 10 finalist songs at the end of the day!

10 - LOL (A ROFL IS NOT ALLOWED)

This is dedicated to his childish and mature side, if that exists. I know its in there somewhere! So, when Pico's not murdering bad dudes, he can chill to this.

Pico Sucks My Balls With His Thunder Lips of DOOM!

I really doubt this song will get on the top 5, but what the hey, trying never hurts.

This was suposed to reflect how Pico can kill people all harcore like but still have a childish side to him.

YAY!

Also, what the hell. I know this submissions gonna get judged pretty unmercifully for not being new. But when I was making this song, I actually kind of planned on submitting it to the Mac, but figured I wouldn't cause I didn't know how well it would fit the theme. But seeing as there really isn't a set theme I'll go ahead and submit it. This would go well with Pico's more childish side :P

Iceball

The bass reminded me of the iceball ski-ball machines. Shut it. >:C

Also I see there is nearly no submissions to this MAC... which is surprising and sad. I thought that maybe there would be a slew of submissions for this.

I'm dropping my track Unoi so that Trogdar can upload the collab we worked on. Sorry if this creates any confusion.

An intense dnb track - Homicidal Rampage
An atmospheric/indie track - Fears

Awesome.

Due to a rather good number of people asking for an extension, and the fact the thread just got plugged in today *last day to submit ;D* We will be accepting submissions until the 28th!

WITH THAT SAID!

Judges, PLEASE PLEASE, start your judging now, make a list, modify or add as new submissions come through, i'm hoping this extra time will give those users the time they need to get something together.

REMEMBER, THE 28TH 23:59:59 IS TEH NEW DEADLINE, THERE WILL BE NO EXTENSIONS AFTERWARDS.

I mean come on, whats the point after Pico day :P?

does that mean we can edit the submissions we already put? just to be fair... i didn't have time to extend what i submitted and this would be clutch.
