Hey folks, I know a lot of you love the current GameBanana mapping contest, but for some of you, you might be looking for something a little different...
The Steam games for winners to choose: - Portal 2 (Key from natko!) - Thief: Deadly Shadows - Limbo - F.E.A.R.: Ultimate shooter edition
If the only game left on the list is already owned by the 3rd place winner, then it will be offered to each of the runner's up in turn. If a winner has all 3 of the games on the list, then they will given an additional 5000 points on top of their current winnings.
Additional: What are we looking for?
Like I mentioned earlier, we're looking for a Half-Life 1, 2, episode 1 or episode 2 map that on a second play through take about 3 - 10 minutes to play through (this means that once we've got any puzzles put in figured out it shouldn't take more than the set time to complete the level). We will take into account everything when coming to a conclusion on a map, that means that gameplay is just as important as looks, and optimization never goes amiss.
Your map can have any theme, it might not even fit in the Half-Life universe, which is fine by us, but you will not be penalized by having an unoriginal setting (just make sure you don't steal and remake any content already available).
Each map submitted will also receive a full review from at least one of the judges.
