For a long time the .NET's unit testing landscape hasn't changed that much... sure, new frameworks arrived, but they were almost the same thing with a subtle syntax twist, instead using [Test] they use [Fact] or different ways to specify setups and so on, but the essence was the same... Attributes based libraries with GUI oriented test runners. There is nothing wrong with that perse, but I guess everybody would agree that they are hard to use if you are working on plaint text editor like vi or emacs. In this context, contest was born as an alternative to IDE oriented tools for those who prefer consoles and text editors. The way the art of programming was meant to be ;)
For an elevator pitch, please refer to this codeproject article.
