Epic announces latest winners of $1 mil Make Something Unreal contest


12:20 PM on 02.19.2009



The 2009 D.I.C.E. summit is going down this week in the always wonderful Las Vegas, and it is here that Epic Games announced the winners of Phase 2 of the $1 Million Intel Make Something Real Contest. The way it works is simple: make the best mods for Unreal Tournament III and get a ton of cash. In this portion of the contest, $70,000 in prizes have been rewarded to mod makers who place in the categories.

These mods will be showcased next month at the 2009 Game Developers Conference. And that's a big deal if you think about it, as people that make these mods often get promoted to making games. 

“Epic’s mod contest has provided benefits for both mod authors and the game industry alike,” said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games, Inc. “Past winners have gone on to ship commercial games using the Unreal Engine, and several former members of the Unreal mod community have found jobs either with Epic or with companies licensing the Unreal Engine.”

If you're wanting to get in on the action, you still have two more phases to enter into before the finals. Phase 3's deadline is May 15th. 

Below the jump you'll find a list of the winners, and above is a video of some of the finalists.

Mod completely sinks Los Santos into the ocean in GTA V

Oh this is just fantastic. A modder by the name of Bushigan has submerged Los Santos into the ocean. The mod was accomplished through a modded PlayStation 3, and as you can see life sort of goes on while Grand Theft Auto V's main city is ravaged by waves. You can make this happen yourself, so long as you have a modded PS3 that is. (Via Kotaku)more

Blade of Darkness looks new again thanks to modding

Last year, I found out about Severance: Blade of Darkness, a hack-and-slash PC game from 2001. What a gem. While its combat -- the sort of calculated action we adore in From Software's Souls games -- continues to hold up all...more

Mod tools for Total War: Rome II are now in beta

Total War: Rome II was one of the games I'm kicking myself for passing over in 2013; I didn't think I was going to be able to commit to a vast strategy game in a series that has shown me no mercy in the past. However, the new...more
