Little Red Sled - level design contest!

Keith has been working hard on a new level editor for Little Red Sled. Here it is, in all its beta blue glory:



The editor isn't ready to roll out to the public quite yet, but we're going to use it to create the new levels for the upcoming update.

Now what we need from YOU are some good ideas for levels! Let your creativity flow, and help us design the most awesome levels you can think of! If you win, we'll even name the levels after you!


Here are the rules:

- We are trying to submit an update this Sunday, so we need to get your submissions early!

- All we need to implement a level is a level map. Nothing fancy - just something that looks like this:



- You can use the following elements in your trail:
- Trees
- Rocks
- Bunnies
- Jumps
- Presents (normal, speed boosts, and invincibility)
- Terrain bumps
- For your level, tell us approximately how long it should be (for reference, the longest level right now, Fortress of Solitude, is 90 seconds long)

- Tell us what the goals are for the level (kill a number of bunnies, collect all presents, finish in a certain time, etc).



And... have fun! Can't wait to see what you guys come up with!

Haha, sweet. Which reminds me that I forgot to post my email. If you can't get your map up on the web, email it to natalia at imangistudios.com

Some ways to get your image:

- Draw it in Paint, save the jpg, email it in
- Draw on paper, scan it in, email
- Draw on paper, take a picture with your iphone, email it in
- Mow your design into a cornfield and get GoogleEarth to take a photo. Everyone will think aliens are designing Little Red Sled levels! Aliens are good marketing.
