For this competition, you must create a map that is inspired by a movie or movie scene.
There are no limits to map(s) size or playtime. You can set the map in any environment that you want.
Please see the rest of this post for full details.
The winning map(s) will be the one that uses a movie as INSPIRATION for the map in the most novel and interesting way. I am NOT expecting EXACT recreations of movie scenes.
I want a movie to provide inspiration for your map, that’s all. The map can be action, story-driven, anything, although the player must be able to move around.
Shooting or puzzle solving is NOT required.
If you have any questions, either email me directly or post them here as comments. DO NOT wait until you are nearly finished!
Attention to detail is very important in this competition. I would much prefer smaller but highly polished maps than larger, less polished maps.
Please contact Ade, the leader of The Beta Testers Collective, a free map beta testing project, to have your map tested. I fully understand that 10 days is very short but even one playthrough by somebody new is enough to highlight issues. She can be contacted here: firstname.lastname@example.org
This competition is sponsored by SteamContests.Com who are kindly donating one $5 Steam game and I will also be adding another $5 Steam game. At this point I don’t know if the winner will be able to chose their games or if it will be a random selection.
Please ensure that your map works on Steampipe.
