Rules and Submissions

Interested? Here's how to enter. Submit your entry to Reddit.com via comments and have a link to video, cosplay or artwork. Once you do that, you're Ret-2-Go!

There will be one first prize winner per category and 2 runner-up prize winners per category for 9 total winners.

Your submission should be Shantae related and safe for work. Your video can be a flash animation, a skit or whatever you like! **Please do not exceed 15 minutes in time on video submissions**

In the unlikely event that a category receives fewer than 3 submissions, that category may be cancelled.
Winners will be contacted for information via their original source. For example, if you win on Youtube, you will be contacted via Youtube.

**Each contest will have the following deadline**
December 1st 11:59pm EST for Artwork
December 15th 11:59pm EST for Cosplay
December 31st 11:59pm EST for Video

Feel free to mention that the Paypal option is still open for donations where your submission is originally posted. Shantae would love all the help she can get!

But wait, there's more! The Shantae fans are working together to make a new Mermaid Shooter in the style of Risky's Revenge Sunken Cavern stage. The game will be non profit and free to play. It will have an initial version to show what the gameplay is like with a couple stages and bosses. As time goes on however, there will be more stages, more bosses and more upgrades. There is also a chance for high quality stills in place of traditional cutscenes and voice acting!

So what is the game all about? Shantae will be in her mermaid transformation the whole game in an underwater adventure across Sequin Land. The five Golden Warp Squid Brothers have been kidnapped by a new adversary. Each stage will have a shooter section and a boss section. Each stage past the first will also have a unique element about it to test your skills. This makes for 10 levels total and we might just throw in a mega boss at the very end.

As for Shantae, she can upgrade her abilities with gems. In keeping with Risky's Revenge, there will also be magic jam to find and collect from bosses for better speed, attack, range and powerups. When she is fully upgraded, she will be a force to be reckoned with!

Furthermore, we will have updates as the game comes along including artwork, music, team reveal and screencaps!

Get excited, stay excited.
