(Unofficial) Shooting Star 🌠 Game Competition June-July 2022

This event/competition/challenge is started by me (@StarlightStudios) and all the currencies, rewards, and prizes are handled by me, not Hopscotch. You can find other similar self-started events in the latest #competitions-and-events or #shops-and-requests topics, or even start one yourself. Because this is started by me, Hopscotch and the forum leaders are not involved or responsible in any of the transactions here.

Hello Everyone!
Welcome to the 1st Shooting Star Competition! :hs_bird:

Any game is fine! Basically it should be fine if it isn’t a project with just art or just music it has to be a playable game.

Hey @Ntt ! I’m really glad you are willing to help give prizes! Do you mind telling me what prizes you were planning to give to the winners? It doesn’t have to be the same for each place.

Ok, do you have a way to give the seeds? I’m pretty sure you would only be able to give the seeds to seed developers.

I think I can donate to them on the hopscotch app

I don’t think you can but are you talking about the mushroom on a project card? If you are that’s how you donate plants but I’m pretty sure you can’t donate seeds

11 Likes
