Video Game Scoreboard is pleased to announce the Fourth Quarter Gamer of the Quarter Competition for 2014.  For this competition, we have teamed up with Dave Vogt and his indie PC Game, The Bounty.

The Fourth Quarter game challenge is on The Bounty. This competition will be playable on any PC which can play the game.  Please see the rules below for full disclosure on the competition..

The Bounty is a retro-inspired, competitive RPG, with an East meets West approach, deviously combined with an arcade high score sensibility. An experience that will challenge your wits as you push to survive, uncover a multitude of secrets, and earn the high score.  It is playable only on PC at this time.

For this competition, we will be featuring and allowing records to be set on the Single Life (Purist) Variation, where you score attempt ends when you hit Game Over and you are allowed no saves.  We will be announcing one new variation a week on this game, but for the purpose of this contest, you must compete on the Single Life Variation.

The Rules:

  1. This competition runs from Oct. 14 to Dec. 31. The August winners will be announced once all scores are verified and places tallied.
  2. Players must submit a recording of their high score attempt on The Bounty.
  3. Players may compete on the systems listed below. They may ONLY compete on The Bounty – Single Life (Purist) Variation.
  4. Recording rules must be followed. Rules can be found here.  For the sake of PC, streaming must show start screen, launching a new game and play from there.  Players are allowed to do multiple attempts in a single recording/stream, but must tell us where the attempt they are submitting to us starts at via timestamp. Failure to follow the rules disqualifies the entry.
  5. Pausing is not allowed.
  6. Players may submit in any of the ways we accept, however, if you are mailing submissions in, please be sure to have them postmarked no later than Dec. 31, 2014.

The Bounty Challenge Objective is to see who can achieve the highest score on the Bounty with 1 life and no saving the game.  You can use any and all perks and bonuses earned while playing the game.  You may NOT stall intentionally timed events.  You may NOT refer to any guides, online wikis, friends or any other help of any sort.

You may record your screen play, and voice if you choose to do so, using any number of programs or a video camera during play.

Recording must begin at title screen and must run continuously through any attempt.

Gamer must disclose what version of Windows they are playing on.

Gamer of the Month Changes to Gamer of the Quarter

SONY DSCAfter a lot of discussion amongst our staff and a group of gamers, we have decided after a year of doing Gamer of the Month’s to change it to Gamer of the Quarter.

Gamer of the Quarter allows for players who may not have time to compete in the short time limit to record and submit their scores.  We also hope that it will allow for more participation as well.

That being said, we decided to extend the July Gamer of the Month into the 3rd Quarter 2014 Gamer of the Month Challenge.  We will be updating the rules for the contest soon, but if you were wanting to enter in the Alpha Wave Challenge, you still have an opportunity to do so.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask them in reply to this post, via email or on our forums.

We thank you for your understanding and hope others look forward to the change in schedule for Gamer of the Quarter as we are.
