0.7.0 Voting Competition

I’ve come up with an idea…

Here’s the deal: every two weeks, you (yes, you) can vote for a new body part to see in the game. We’ll put up a choice of 4 new body parts each fortnight.

The winning body part of each round will be modelled by our artist Jade and added to the mutation map in 0.7.0…. if, and only if, speciesgame.com gets enough unique visitors that fortnight. (“Unique visitors” includes returning visits, so coming back the next day to check the forms or wiki counts!) Last fortnight we had 5322 unique visitors: for the first round, we’ll aim to roughly match that. To keep things interesting, we’ll adjust the target after every round.

So, without further ado, your choices for the first 0.7.0 Body-Part Voting Spread-The-Word Competition Thingy (working title) are:

* Crocodile Longjaw *
* Housefly Probiscus *
* Zoidberg Tentacles *
* Halo Elite Split Jaw *

Vote here: http://www.speciesgame.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=264 (you’ll need to register to the forums to vote)

So go forth! Spread the word, join in on the forums, and remember to vote. The winning head type will make it into Species 0.7.0 if we get 5000 unique visitors before the 15th of September.

(Edit) Suggestions to help make sure we get enough visitors!

    This is a great idea I just have a few comments and questions. Since the site already received 5k visitors without this contest why not set the goal to 6k or 10k to add some incentive? Do the mouths have an different effects on diet?

    Well since this is the first round, I wanted to make it an easy one. You’re right though, it reduces the incentive… hmm… tell you what: if we reach 5k visitors easily, I’ll put up a stretch goal.

    By that I mean, if we reach a certain secondary target, we’ll model the runner-up into the game as well! 🙂

    And yes, the mouths will have an effect on diet. Off the top of my head…

    Crocodile: +0.8 Carnivore,
    Housefly: -0.3 Omnivore/Herbivore
    Zoidberg: 0.0 Omnivore
    Split Jaw: +0.7 Carnivore
