With the days getting shorter and colder, it is time for our annual winter themed contest. This year, we want to see what awesome snowy maps / levels / stages you can come up with! You have time until 28th December to come up with a map that represents Winter in the best possible way.
A toy store
An elf slave ship bound for the north pole
A map set in Santa's workshop
A map set in the branches of a giant Christmas tree
A rats-styled map with giant presents
The north pole
The submissions will be judged on the following categories:
Use of custom content (textures / models / sounds etc.)
Originality (Does the submission fit with the theme)
Technical ability & skill required to create the submission
To qualify, the maps must be uploaded to the site and tagged as a contest entry before the DEADLINE!
Every submission must be a playable level for the game it's been made for!
Entries must be submitted onto the site before the deadline.
Submitted content must be considered "Original", or have the permission given by the original artist if based on an already existing concept/map.
If you wish to create a remake of an existing map, you must have the original author's permission.
The submission can use pre-existing assets such as existing models, textures or layouts, but enough work should be done to consider the submission a 'new release' made for this competition. Simply re-uploading a previous piece of work will not count.
Multiple entries are allowed, however quality is better than quantity.
Each entrant may only win a maximum of one (1) prize.
Team based entries are allowed, but the entrants will have to decide and agree on how to split any prizes awarded.
Entries cannot be modified after the deadline except for changes to the submission profile (changing the description, notes or screenshots).
If the entry is uploaded to an external site, it must state that it was created for the 2016 GAMEBANANA WINTER MAPPING CONTEST.
Judges cannot enter or assist entrants.
Upon entering the contest you agree on receiving your cash prize via PayPal or as the equivalent in Steam games.
