*inhales in preparation for a super cheesy howdy-doody announcement*
Hey there fellow Newgrounders! Are you secretly a writer? Do you enjoy sci-fi, fantasy, westerns, and stories about shapeshifting cyborgs from outer space?? (I guess that last one falls under sci-fi…)
Then have I got news for you!
I'm hosting a Crypt Shyfter short story writing contest and offering cash prizes for the best entries. Pen your masterpiece and earn some cash!
No idea what Crypt Shyfter is? Click here: https://www.newgrounds.com/collection/cryptshyfter
The rules are simple: write a story featuring evil Shyfters and heroic badasses. Anything goes!
All stories must be over 2,000 words to be considered for a prize. Your stories do NOT need to include multiple paths, but I'll definitely give bonus points if you write an adventure using Twine or another text adventure program.
The competition will be judged by @heroblowe, @thedoubleone, and myself.
First place: $50
Second place: $30
Third place: $20
Additionally, I'll be working with the first place author to convert their story into a full-length adventure that we will post here on Newgrounds.
Please post links to your entries in this thread so everyone can see them and giggle at your badly written sex scenes. The deadline for this contest is October 15, 2018. We will announce the winners on October 17. There is no limit to the number of entries you can submit, so if you write 3 totally kick ass stories then you deserve the full $100!
This competition is open to anyone. Spelling and grammar will be considered but we're mainly looking for funny stories about monsters getting killed by heroes so don't beat yourself up if you're not Bill Shakespeare. Just have fun with it!
Let me know if you have any questions. I look forward to reading your badass adventures ;)
