    It's that time of the year again...

    Apologies for another March announcement.

    Whilst it was our intention to announce earlier this year, the major changes this year, as well as other things to address, caused another delay which was beyond our control, we can only apologise for that.

    In any case, people have more than enough time to plan for this year, and there will be those intending to submit, would possibly have been working on potential entries long before this announcement.

    Contrary to previous threads, all information regarding the Contest and Expo this year can be accessed by going to this page.

    A few major changes have been made compared to the previous year, the biggest change being a complete split in contest judging, which means separate judges for each category (Retro / 3D / 2DPC).

    Here are the dates to remember for this year:

    CONTEST DEADLINE - End of Sunday 5th September
    UPDATES DEADLINE - End of Sunday 12th September
    EXPO DEADLINE - End of Sunday 26th September
    CONTEST WEEK - Monday 11th to Sunday 17th October

    If you have any questions regarding this year, you can use this thread, or contact us on the SHC Discord Server.

    If there are any issues, please contact us directly using the Contact Us Form available on the page.

    Please stay tuned to this thread for information on the usual trailer and when the website opens for submissions.

    It will be up when it's up.™

    Ready, Set, Procrastinate!!

    Due to the recent uptrend in Mania mods, the new decompilations of the mobile games, and the increasing number of 3D entries compared to retro hacks, we've decided to rename the contest to better reflect the nature of the majority of entries we receive.

    I don't see the point of the name change, but okay.

    Yes, you are correct, it was indeed a joke!
