Weird to see slam put as a project spotlight when it would make more sense to format its placement in the newsletter as some final sort of "call to arms" for getting in some levels. Especially since it's the current official community project.
Ideas are useless if you can't make them real.

All my assets from packs and episodes are free to use for non-Novaverse levels and projects, as long as proper credit is given.

Hello. The creator of Star Prisms here. First of all, thank you for showcasing my project in here. The progress is really great right now. Expect a new demo in about 2-3 days.

EDIT: It has been released.

Thanks for your efforts! I don't think I'll take part in any of these contests, but it's good to see that levels and episodes are still getting featured.
