Ladies and Gentlemen, I am glad to announce you that I organize a new mapping contest for the following games :
  • Serious Sam Classic: The Second Encounter

This contest is based on being a Science Fiction Mapping Contest, you are free to set your level how you want and choose the theme that you prefer but you must consider the following rules :
  • The ambiance of your map must be based on Science Fiction
  • Your level must be one of these themes : Space Stations, Apocalypse, Space Planets, or a theme of your choice that must be Science Fiction themed
  • It must be a coop level longer than 10 minutes in Singleplayer
  • Any custom ressource is allowed, but not DLL's or patches
  • Your level must be packed into a GRO file
  • The progress of your map must be secret, no information, no screenshots, etc... must be revealed

  • Ambiance - /10
  • Originality - /10
  • Rules following - /10

All these points are based on a score out of 10 which makes a total of 50 points. The map which will receive the best score will be the winner of the contest. There will be a ranking and the 3 best candidates will get the following prices :
  • 1st place : 10 steam trading cards + A Random game

If you want to get into the competition, you just have to reply this post and tell the game you will use for this contest, or you can contact me on steam. You can register from TODAY until JULY 20th (I will update this post each reply but the registration will officially start on July 06th, if you won't be there you can register today).

Once the end of the contest (September 30th), your map must be sent before 23:59.59 of September 30th GMT at skior@hotmail.fr

P.S: I will be offline from June 28th to July 05th, that's why registations officially start on July 06th.

Generally, you enter in a contest not for the price, but for see if you are good for the competition theme, or if you are average. Whatever, this kind of contest can help to progress in mapping.

I know that the prizes are really poor and I'm sorry about it but I am not necessarily able to offer better. I have organized this competition for the pleasure to test what the contestants are able to do.
Best Regards.

I know that, if that wasn't the case we'd see more people jumping in all over the place. I'm trying to turn my life around and move out of my parents house, so this is a very tense time in my life.

'Prizes'

Anyway, because we love you guys, Seriously! will be giving away free games (randomly chosen) from our stash to every contest participant that actually finishes their map on time and submits it.

So this isn't so much as a prize for winning but an encouragement to stay committed and do your best!

Are we allowed to use music from Serious Sam Next Encounter, that one Alantean theme would sound great for this.

Two is better than one. Also the level would be longer.

Is it even possible to make a Möbius strip in any of the editors?
