Jailbreak is easily one of the most popular gamemodes for Counter-Strike. The origins of the gamemode go all the way back to Quake 2, making it over 20 years old.
A group of CSGO Jailbreak servers have come together to sponsor a mapping contest in collaboration with GameBanana.com over the summer. Your task is create a brand new Jailbreak map for CS:GO. It should look good, be original, be fun to play on with the quality and quantity of activities to use and be interesting for both sides.
The activities for the prisoners will be important part of the judging, both in the quality of them and the quantity of them. New and well made activities will score well.
The design is also a notable part of the judging, so make sure to consider the visual aspects when making your entry.
We will also value the originality of the map, both in visuals and gameplay.
The gameplay should be interesting for both teams, secrets are fine but it cells shouldn't start with AKs in them for example
The rules are listed in the right hand column. Make sure to read them through carefully before deciding to enter the contest. If you have any questions regarding them, simply comment below and we can clarify issues.
The entry must include this banner somewhere in the map where it is clearly visible to everybody. If you really don't want to use the banner, you can implement the sponsors icons + "Jailbreak Mapping Contest" text in another way. Just make sure like with a banner it's not hidden away somewhere no one would see.
To qualify, the submissions must be uploaded to the site and tagged as a contest entry before the DEADLINE! If you don't see the contest listed on the add/edit form of your submission, make sure you have hit "Join" on this contest page first.
An extra $50 has been added to the prizepool thanks to Edge Gamers Organization! As it's late into the contest, we won't be updating the banner to add in their logo unfortunately. Despite this they were still happy to increase the prize pools so again thanks!
