    Welcome to the final week of Tempmas 2014!
    This post is a couple of days late (too much Eggnog!) but we hope you still have some Tempmas spirit left in you!
    What we're asking for this week is for you to create a Tempmas themed Christmas Carol. The best Carol will win a brand new New 3DS and a 3DS game of your choice!
    There will also be one runner up prize of a 3DS game of your choice.

    Check out the following rules before submitting your entry:

    If you are looking for some kind of inspiration, check out this Legendary Jingle from GBAtemp's very own @tshu.

    Good luck and keep checking in to see the winners from Week #1 announced soon!

    I am not sure what that is, but if it doesn't say anything about it in the rules, I guess that must be allowed?

    It's a voice synthesizer. They just don't want to sing themselves :angry:

    But it's not against the rules so it's allowed. As long as there's some of your own voice included in the song.

    Good luck, everyone :grog:

    Are we obliged to sing or can we just write lyrics? But I suppose just some lyrics no matter how good, will be no match against a sang song huh :( ?

    I updated the rules for the sake of clarity

    "The carol must contain singing performed by either the entrant or a combination of the entrant and others"
    "Written lyrics may be included with your entry but only the actual recorded performance will be judged"

    We want to hear you sing is what the competition boils down to, you can add things to enhance your entry within the scope of the rules and fair usage but if your entry doesn't contain a decent amount of singing by you and others don't expect to win no matter how good it may be.

    Whatever region you prefer. If the winner is from the US, we will wait until it is released there (or preorder it, I guess)

    Oh well, I guess I will have to skip this one too, I can't sing. :P

    Anyway, good luck for anyone that will give a go in this thing, the prize is great!

    We are still in the process of judging the first competition, expect the results to be up as soon as we are done. Remember though its Christmas for the staff too and we all have other commitments as well as our temp ones. :ha:

    Feeling's mutual, bro. Best of luck to those entering though. A New 3DS is definitely a nice prize to win.
