    In order to keep the main thread clean for entries only, use this thread to discuss the contest and the entries.

    Please try to refrain from general commentary around Redigit, 505, the console launch, etc..

    There are spots for each of those - feel very free to express yourself there (my fellow terrarians or the console q&a thread linked below):

    Cheers and best of luck to the entrants!!!

    Is a 3-5 minute video acceptable?

    Guys, I'd say just post your best effort....but don't make it a thirty minute short film.

    The key is brief...and, though it's 505s call, I wouldnt call five minutes a long movie.

    I mean I don't want it to be too long, but yea I wouldn't make it ten minutes. I mean come on, who wants to watch a ten minute video of you rambling on about the same exact topic? Not me. But I mean it said 1-2 minutes so I thought there was some kind of video time limit.

    Is there any sort of free video recording software available for use? I want in D:

    Also, how are they going to make a vinyl wall print, from a video?

    What I really don't understand, and this is plain criticism from me, is why 505 appears to only be interested in viral media when creating their contests.

    What about fan artists, or fan writers?

    Up next: "Chuck Norris in Terraria" contest!

    That's probably because these media are more accessible and reach a larger audience. Contests like these are all about exposure rather than artistic prowess..

    They are trying to reach out to people who haven't rejected them. They need more people on their side for this little business plan to work out.

    Of course, to me they look like the typical middle aged man trying to be hip so people don't reject them.

    In before white knights with painted smiles.

    It's because we (the mod team) focus more on the forum and the artsy stuff. Their contests aren't just geared for the forum, but for fb and twitter and the other sites as well. The Terraria fandom isn't just the forum. There's a contest that's more involved coming up soon from us.

    Kira nailed it....and they will likely help us on ours in regards to prizes and feedback. Maybe not...but it seems promising so far.

    Trust me, we are casting a wide net with our next one in regards to talents....

    Awesome to see the entries coming in so far - keep them coming!

    It's fine for a video to be a little longer than 1-2 mins, but obviously not 10 minutes!

    On the vinyl wall print part of the prize - we'll be creating this from a screenshot.

    Have a great weekend everyone :)

    I'm starting making my entry tonight, and have decided to make a musical video which will last just under 2 and half mins. That said, I'm rewriting a very well known song, so it will either murder the classic or become semi-legendary. xD

    Hopefully will have it ready and released by Sunday

    Because that's the only thing they can do right now to garner interest in the community.

    I'm actually pretty proud that I wrote the lyrics for the song I'm using by myself. If anyone would be interested in helping with vocals, please hit me up, cause I'm not a great singer tbh. ;)

    Kill a green slime, get some torches, make it through the night,
    Go explore, surface caves, pinky slime, 16 grenades,
    smashing pots, surface ores, whoa... is that corrupt?

    Diggy diggy, dig some more, pick some stone, break some ores
    Music changes, mobs get vicious, bats are bloody lame,
    Flooded tunnels, giant worms, dirt is blocking out the sun,
    Demon eyes, Curt was slain, you left the door open again?!

    I love to play Terraria,
    just 2D adventures,
    no such thing as weather.
    I love to play Terraria,
    cause you can't quite match it,
    even when minecraft patches.

    Skeletons and Mother slimes, silver veins, high water lines,
    jellyfish, miner's tombs, a glowing mushroom patch.
    Boulder traps, watch your step, life crystals and spiderwebs,
    double jump, grind some mobs, sand is overpowered...

    cause I'm always finding
    new things to be mining.
    I've overplayed Terraria,
    for six hundred hours,
    I think I need a shower.

    Eyeball slain, drops gained, daytime comes, glass panes,
    More trees, more rooms, make potions out of mushrooms
    Time to venture out some more, I'm too pro for copper ore.
    Passing through corruption zone, maybe they'll leave me alone. (nope.)

    ebonstone, dirt bridges, flying eaters, hide in ridges,
    rotten chunks, vile worms, how further yet to go?
    Escape and find the dungeon stairs, take the plunge if you dare,
    man turns into floating head - don't forget to set a bed!

    Just to troll the hackers,
    makes me roar with laughter.

    We splashed out to buy it.
