    Hi, we've decided, for absolutely no reason, to throw a totally-legitimate contest. It's open to any and all applicants, Also, it's multi-community, so ranks/status on any community is irrelevant. The deadline for any submissions is:






    To enter, all you need to do is to make something. Naturally there must be actual proof that your entry was made (so you can't just claim something that doesn't exist). You may make an unlimited number of submissions, and there are no restrictions as to what the content is (it can be done on a computer, or made in real life and photographed, or anything else). Additionally, all entries will be put into a raffle, for an undisclosed prize.
    Full details/guidelines/rules are available below.

    Up for grabs are an assortment of prizes, the list will grow depending on the number of applicants. Prizes are non-hierarchial, but may be selected by winners (i.e. first prize gets to pick any of the below).

    Deus Ex 3: Human Revolution
    Award-winning, highly-anticipated prequal to Deus Ex.
    Outstanding visuals, audio and astounding plot.

    Trine
    Innovative puzzle-game with a cult-following.
    Simple and brilliant.

    (also included are Shadowgrounds and Shadowgrounds Survivor)

    HyperCube Model*
    [​IMG]
    A four-dimensional object rendered in our humble three.
    Quite literally out-of-this world, as we're sure your entry will be.

    *will require a valid address

    Free VPS with StormCom*
    [​IMG]
    3 months free unmetered VPS.
    512MB RAM, 100GB diskspace.
    Available managed or unmanaged.
    * requires valid email-address, terms of service apply


    Rules
    1. All submissions must be made by the content owner(s). Plagurised entries will be discounted, and will not count towards either the main competition or the raffle.
    2. Any Minecraft-based submissions must be created on either (at this time) The Depths, or The Archives' Minecraft servers. This is to ensure authenticity of entries (if you represent a Minecraft server and would like to participate, please contact StormBit).
    3. Both the terms of this contest and the pool of awardable items is subject to change, with retroactive effect. This is to ensure that all entries abide by the same terms.
    4. Prizes are non-exchangable. Additionally the full number of awards will remain undisclosed until after the contest is closed.
    5. Any and all content is suitable for entry, Community rules permitting. However, winning content from "Antoligy's Steam Giveaway Contest Thing" is expressively forbidden
    6. This contest is open to all, as in "Anyone, Anywhere", with the sole exception being those who are judging.
    7. While Judge's decisions are final, if there are any disputes with how our judging process has been conducted, there will be a 72 hour period in which to express any concerns. After this, any inconsistencies will be resolved at the discression of the Judges.

    Okay!

    I will do something!

    Edit: I assume it is cool for us to post the entry's here

    In any case here is a strange shape with a face on it flipping off waving at a circle (kinda) with a sad face surrounded by black fuzzy blobs with a strange filter, enjoy!

    (also text proves I made it)

    Are there any categories of "something" involved? How is "something" graded? By degree of complexy/difficulty or just the final effect? :D

    Collective opinions as to the final effect. That said, complexity rarely goes unrewarded, as can be seen from the previous list of winners.

    Do something? But that requires doing something!

    Well, here's one thing I made for class after discovering there was a band named Blue October:
    [​IMG]

    And here's another, using NASA's recently released, super high definition picture of the Earth:
    [​IMG]

    If I can think of anything else worth posting, I'll be sure to do that.

    EDIT: Alright, I thought of something else. I used photoshop to add on to this gif.

    [​IMG]

    EDIT PART 2: I also made this gif with a recent Harry Partridge video.

    If you need me to post the PSD file as proof, just let me know.

    Seems interesting, but I'm curious about something, does it have to be stuff made on the computer, or can it be something made physically as well?
    Proven with pics obv.

    Yeah, if you could.


    Not to make a double post, so I'll use my current papercraft in the making one of the submissions. xP
    I'll take some pics tomorrow.

    Just *bumping* this thread, to let you guys know that there are some pretty decent entries from the other sites participating, and that the Binding of Isaac is likely to be added to the prize pool.

    I made a ghetto iHome dock for my Zen: Vision M. I've since torn it apart but I still have parts of it if you need further proof that I made it.

    I don't have a steam account and don't need a storage space so I don't wish to win, I just wanted to show what I made :grog:
    I thought more users will post, but if you have another forum full of good submission then it's good :P

    Note, this is mainly just a tech demo, so don't expect anything amazing. I haven't worked on the game in months either, but I plan on picking up development again this summer.

    And yes, I just copypasta'd this from my ZFGC thread. :P

    Jensen pixel-art (assistance of Invedit for materials) with Antoligy in glowstone (to profess my love, no not really). Took more effort that I expected but I think it came out okay.

    Although I know I'm going to lose after seeing a *certain someone's* entry in the other forum. OH WELL.

    Well I just happen to have been working on something useless for the past few days, so I guess I might as well enter. :P
    Hopefully this will become the foundation to a game, but right now it's nothing more than a "tech demo" (and even calling it that is pushing it).
    So basically at this point it's a planet generation and rendering engine. The idea is to make planets with billions of blocks and then have them be modifiable (to an extent). Kind of like minecraft in space. Right now I've nailed the seamless transition between space and surface, and that's pretty much it. It's very rough at the moment, but I hope to make it a little easier on the eyes before the end of the contest. :)
