EXILIAN ANNIVERSARY COMPETITION: EXILE
« on: March 13, 2018, 10:25:25 PM »
CREATIVE COMPETITION: EXILE



Exilian's 10th birthday is coming up fast, and we're having a CREATIVE COMPETITION!

The rules are simple: by 23:59PM on March 30, come up with some sort of creative creation on the theme. It could be a mod, a poem, a story, a computer game, artwork, an RPG character, some music, whatever you like. Our panel of judges (whose identities will be revealed soon) will then all rate the entries, and the best will win.

The competition theme, appropriately for our anniversary, is EXILE.

The winners will get prizes!

The overall winner will win:
1x steam copy of Bigosaur's SON OF A WITCH, a beat 'em up roguelike game by Bigosaur that sees the player tactically work their way through 7 levels of fast-paced combat!
1x steam copy of Slug Disco's EMPIRES OF THE UNDERGROWTH, an RTS where your ant colony must battle others and face the challenges of survival in the undergrowth.
1x steam copy of Kinklade's ESCAPE FROM BIOSTATION, a comedy sci-fi adventure in which you play the last robot denizen of an ancient space station, armed with... a squirrel?
1x custom skin request for Son of a Witch, fulfilled by Jubal
1x poem or song on a topic of the winner's choice, written by Jubal

The runner up will win:
1x steam copy of EMPIRES OF THE UNDERGROWTH
1x steam copy of ESCAPE FROM BIOSTATION
1x poem on a topic of the winner's choice, written by Jubal

More prizes may be added soon!

To enter:
> Make your entry!
> Message your entry or a link to it to me (Jubal)
> Post below in this thread to say you've entered - entries may not be read if this step is not completed!

A maximum of two entries per person may be submitted: multiple entries may not be in the same format, and the highest scoring of the entries will stand.



THE JUDGES
Bigosaur (Milan Babuskov)
Creator of the indie game Son of a Witch, and hailing from Serbia, Bigosaur is one of Exilian's foremost game developers, and was an exhibitor at ExiliCon 2016. Son of a Witch is a roguelike beat 'em up with seven procedurally generated levels in which your character must battle goblins, skeletons, yetis, and a host of other enemies! He's kindly donated one of our prizes for this competition!

Jubal (James Baillie)
Exilian's founder, Jubal, is an early career historian specialising in digital methods, and the only member of Exilian's core team to have been in post from 2008 to the present. He's also an award-winning author of Total War mods, including Warhammer: Total War, Narnia Total War, and a Game of Colleges, and a hobbyist game developer and writer in his own right, creating games including Adventures of Soros and the upcoming Doctor Who themed title LIFE.

Best wishes, and we look forward to seeing what you come up with!

Update: there's too little time as it is so I've pushed closing back to March 30. Also, added a rule on entry multiples.

I can now announce two members of the judging panel, and a NEW PRIZE, as Kinklade has very kindly offered two keys for his game Escape from Biostation! :)

Yeah, we'll accept it, dw :)


Submissions Closed.

Right, I need to get these all hunted down, bundled up, and sent off to Bigosaur, and then judged too... we'll do a big montage post of all the submissions, winners and non-winners alike, when this is done, because a) there are some fun ones and b) Bigosaur and I have both done entries that won't get judged but which we can put into the montage of what everyone did :)
