Gaming News - Epic Wants You to Make Something Unreal!
Listen up, Unreal Tournament 3 mod makers - Epic Games has partnered with Intel to launch the $1 Million Make Something Unreal contest. This contest is aimed at giving the best and the brightest of the Unreal modding community their chance to shine. The only thing contestants need to do is develop and submit a great mod for UT3. There are four phases to the contest, but rather than having any phase being dependent on another, Epic wants modders to enter early and often. Participants are certainly allowed to enter the same mod in all four phases, but that mod must have a tangible progression from one step to the next. The grand prize is an Unreal Engine license - allowing the winner to develop his/her own game based on the engine, and shop it around for a possible production deal! Other prizes include cash, Intel hardware, and Velocity Micro personal computers. Epic is also hinting that they're searching for talent to hire during the contest, so keep that in mind - not a bad consolation prize, if you ask me!
