Relayed through axl z on the message board and the Mega Man Network comes the surprising announcement of a new game: a Battle Network and Star Force crossover titled Rockman.EXE: Operate Shooting Star!
Few details are known for the time being, although we'll probably learn more in the coming weeks and months. Most people, myself included, believed that the Battle Network series was officially ended, but it looks like side-games such as this one might still show up in the future.
It's now time to announce the results of the 2009 main drawing contest!
First of all, thanks for everyone who entered! We received only five entries, although they all deserved to win in some way: there is no half-hearted attempt to be found here!
Without making you wait too long, the end results:
- First place: Ultimate X - "Mia and the Magical Sunflower Meadow"
- Second place: ProtomanEXE - "I fail at deadlines." Which should be called "The board fails at deadlines"!
- Third place: Breakman - "One Reason..."
Congratulations to our three winners! As we've got a tie between the second and third place, the picture that was submitted first was given the advantage. See all of the entries on the results page!
All three of you will be receiving an e-mail from me tonight about claiming your prizes.
Judging was handled by your friendly oekaki board moderating task force: Kia Purity, Rioni Riishu, and myself, Dr. Cossack! You can read our comments alongside each contest entry, which might help you understand how the pictures were rated.
Hopefully, the next contest will see more contestants fighting for the top spot. See you then!
