Make a map, win 1k in Dungeon Defenders

3 mins read

Hey, you know that Dungeon Defenders map you made? Yes you do- that one you keep telling everybody about. It could net you a cool grand.

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.
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.

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?

1st place: Map inclusion into Dungeon Defenders Ranked & Open mode, $1,000 prize and a DunDef prize pack (TBD)2nd place: $500 and a DunDef prize pack (TBD)3rd place: $250 and a DunDef prize pack (TBD)4th place: DunDef prize pack (TBD)

  • That is so awesome. Good to see they're still really working hard to support this game, all these months after its initial release.

    Now if only I had the PC version and a PC that could play it…
