Square Enix and Amazon.com announce Thief Mod Contest


Recommended Posts

Submitting someone elses work (twice!) without knowledge permission or credit? That's pretty damn low. Hopefully Gecko receives any prizes the work wins, and not whichever shady bastard submitted the works.

Intel Sandy Bridge i7 2600K @ 3.4ghz stock clocks
8gb Kingston 1600mhz CL8 XMP RAM stock frequency
Sapphire Radeon HD7870 2GB FLeX GHz Edition @ stock @ 1920x1080

I'm sure everyone has seen this by now: http://www.amazon.co...ocId=1001928521         The timing of the contest announcement caught us by surprise, so we weren't able to confirm out involvement imme

Damn Vae, you need to give warning before you post so I can get out the lectern and mood lighting.   There we go!   http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OlH2DhxXVDs

As long as you made it in before the deadline you should have had a chance. I'm completely dumbfounded why this isn't up there. Compared to their choices, this blows all the other finalists away.

Those damn thieves!

 

But seriously that is pretty terrible. I wonder if EM would even care... Probably not, sadly.

They (SE) care a great deal about the legalities.

Not enough to pull the phony entries it seems.

 

tbh I think TDM should maybe consider making some kind of statement about not supporting plagiarism in Amazon/EM's contest.

Amazon is hosting the videos. I would expect some delay in communication.

Oh thats awesome and well deserved! Congrats Moonbo!!

 

Looks like Moonbo won

 

One winner from each of the two categories will receive a host of prizes from key partners, including:

o A high-end gaming rig from AMD which includes an AMD Radeon™ R9 290X graphics card

o An all-expenses paid trip to E3 2014 with Square Enix

o Steam code for all Square Enix Games with the matching Prima Guide

o A bundle of game development books on Kindle

o An Amazon Kindle DX

 

So maybe Moonbo you can slap some sense into those silly Frenchies when you see them in person! :P

Haha, thanks everyone! As far as the swag, I'll be taking the E3 and Eidos Montreal trips but my wife wasn't too fond of the idea of me wasting any *more* time on gaming, so I took the cash value of the AMD computer and Steam codes instead :-P. I did get a redemption code for an e-book titled “Game Development Essentials: An Introduction” by Jeannie Novak - if anyone wants it just post on this thread and I'll send it over.

 

You know, when I first heard about the contest I thought that The Dark Mod just by itself was going to be the hands down winner (I mean, the team's effectively made a whole new entry in the franchise from scratch). So I'm glad that a TDM map was chosen as the winner.

 

*Holds up imaginary trophy*

 

This one's for you guys.

Would be hilarious to see this quote as part of an acceptance speech on their contest page.
