I had considered entering, but I had actually zero time this month. I'll share my concept, which is basically the entire joke anyway.

I had a lineup of public domain versions of familiar characters that I was going to put into an autobattler.

The whole roster is here. I'm releasing these guys into the public domain where they belong, so if you have any ideas of what a person might do with such things, you're welcome to steal them all.

The submission window has closed!

Playing these games for the first time on stream Monday I was impressed yet again by the ideas, the fun, and in some cases the quality of your submissions.

Let us have a moment of silence and mourn the losses of some promising entries I was hoping to see: eon's shotgun wielding Merlin game, ChocoSoldier's Vikings of Midgard Card game, Mr. Penguin's epic tale of penguins on the moon, Holly's Wizard of Oz film noir text game, whatever the heck idontknow was working on, my automated self-constructing, self-playing game, and perhaps others that were lost to the sands of time or I just forgot about because they weren't important enough.

A video of my tour through all the games will be surfacing sometime before voting closes, which again will be on the 21st!

It has been a privilege hosting the Ridiculous Games Contest <3 May the best mutant win.

The biggest upset was Steamboat '24 - Berry placing 4th. and so close behind 2nd and 3rd place.
Great job berry!

Although I didn't win a prize I still like to believe that my game was among the most "ridiculous" of them all

By the way for those that aren't a part of the discord server here's my youtube upload covering the live stream where Bena played all the games. I even included timestamps for when each person's game comes up. :v:

Many thanks to Berry! I know it's tough sometimes to sit down and play everything to see what your vote is going to be and the video helped.
