Trendy Entertainment is having a contest of sorts right now. All you have to do (basically) is have a really awesome map and send it over to them so they can take a peek. If they like it and want to use it in DD, they'll 'buy' it from you for the cool sum of $1000 USD- not too shabby.
Now we'd wish you luck but it's no secret that we like DD a whole lot here at dd (interesting coincidence there), and so there's the chance that you might have to go head-on with some of us in the competition. But please, feel free to enter... and lose. Full deets from the release below:
For the complete breakdown of rules, submission process, prizes and further information, click HERE. Otherwise, here’s the quickie breakdown:
The rules are quite simple!
Maps should be traditional Tower Defense, supporting 4-6 Heroes. Use of special mechanics like fans and magic carpets is fine. Boss fights are also allowed.
Use of custom materials is allowed.
Collaborations are allowed. Multiple authors can pool their talents on a single submission, and split any prizes that may be awarded. However, only 1 map per author is allowed.
Maps created prior to the start of this contest are ineligible.
Do your best to make the map actually work. You will not be disqualified if the map contains errors. I.e. a particular monster spawn is broken, last wave doesn’t end properly, whatever. However, you will suffer a small penalty in the scoring process.
Entries must be submitted no later than June 21 at 11:59 p.m. EST.As far as prizes go, the big daddy is the 1k, but there's a bunch more. Those are the one's that you'll all probably be fighting for since we've already established that we'll be nabbing the main prize. Just try to lose gracefully okay?
Maps will be judged by a popular and judge vote based on Balance, Originality, Detailing, and Optimization. For a breakdown of these categories, go HERE.
