Art Contest: Abobo's Big Adventure - 10 Year Anniversary 2022-01-09 20:05:48 (edited 2022-01-09 20:20:04)
This Tuesday, January 11th 2022 marks the 10 year anniversary of the release of Abobo's Big Adventure!
ABA was made by three incredibly smart, hilarious, good looking, and outrageously buff guys who met on Newgrounds: @mockery, @poxpower, and @bomtoons. Their efforts brought to life and gave a background and history to one of the most overlooked and underrated NES characters... ABOBO! (@abobo)
We want to celebrate the biggest, most outrageous, tribute to the Nintendo Entertainment System in history with a few things:
(1) Abobo's Big Adventure developer livestream playthrough and commentary! Mockey, Pox, and BoM will be getting together for the FIRST TIME EVER to play through ABA and talk about the development, history, process, and aftermath behind the game. We'd love to have you tune in live this Tuesday, Jan 11th at 5pm PST to ask us live questions and overall get a big party going as we wax doubly nostalgic about the NES and our tribute to it. This stream is made possible by the generous support of @Noodle and his YouTube channel 2 Left Thumbs.
(2) We are also celebrating by kicking off an Abobo art contest with cash (and other) prizes here on Newgrounds! The theme of the contest is "Memorable Moments From Abobo's Big Adventure."
- Create an artwork depicting/illustrating a memorable moment from Abobo's Big Adventure
- Submit your work to the Art Portal with the tag: Abobo10 by Friday February 11th 2022
- (We recommend also tagging your post with abobo and abobosbigadventure, for your art's long-term discoverability)
- (Optional) Tweet your artwork to Nick, Rog, or Pox and let them know what the game means to you. It couldn't hurt to butter up the judges by spreading some joy on their timeline!
- Only one entry per person
- Submissions after the deadline will NOT be counted
Rog, Pox, and BoM will work together to judge our favorite entries.
- 1st - $125 and a huge collector's Domo Kun stuffed animal (donated by @Pox)
- 2nd - $100 (Thanks @Noodle)
- 3rd - $75
- 4th - $50
The top 3 winners will also receive an "Abobo Coin" (an ultra-rare collector's item from the times we exhibited the game at Comic Con - I only have 3 left). [Add-on prizes pictured in the comments]
If anyone else wants to donate to the prize pool, please PM @BoMToons with details and I'll update the above prize numbers and/or expand the winner range (and credit you).
- We will announce the winners through the BBS, as well as on Twitter on Tuesday, February 15th, 2022.
Please let us know! We look forward to seeing which moments you'll pull out of the zany, random, fever dream that is Abobo's Big Adventure!
