Make Something Unreal

Epic Games announces the kick-off of the new installment in their Make Something Unreal competition in conjunction with Intel. The contest once again will offer prizes valued in excess of (pinky to mouth) one million dollars! Word is:

The Make Something Unreal Contest is created for you to have fun working with the engine while making something Unreal to share with the community! It is broken into four different phases, which are not dependant upon each other. The idea behind having four phases is to encourage people to enter early and often, and to keep improving their mods over time. You can enter the same mod in all four phases of the contest but, in order to be judged, there must be noticeable improvements to the mod upon the second or third submission. We're anxious to tell the world about your mod, but we'll want your help to do so. If you have an official web site for your mod, then we'll happily post your URL, along with the download URL you provide for the mod itself, on our contest web site once it is fully operational. One thing we're anxious to do with this mod contest is to help mod makers get professional status. Nearly half of the people who work on Epic Games' development team were former mod-makers! We want to help you make it to the big leagues as well. Think you have what it takes? Check out the Epic Jobs page.

You can enter any phase you wish, and do not need to be a winner of previous phases. If you win any phase, you are free to enter the next phase once it opens (except for Grand Finals which required you to be a finalist of Phase 4).

All phase prizes and details can be found on our Categories page.

Well if nothing else, its an easier way for people to get into the gaming business especially if they didn't have someone to pay for them to get a fancy gaming degree.

You forgot to mention they are also on the supposed panel to save/promote PC gaming.

I can't figure these guys out. The PC sucks for development. But here, develop some mods for this shitty platform, and we'll pay huge bucks. Sounds like they're speaking out of both sides of their mouths.

At any rate, this kind of attention to the mod scene is a great thing, and I commend Epic for doing it. I just hope the winner isn't another WW2 FPS.

"...so we can promote the mod and make it look like we care about you pirates PC users, rape and pillage it for ideas for Gears Of War 2 then throw you to the dogs!!! After all, anything made on our engine is our intellectual property!!!"

Yea, because that's exactly what Epic did to Red Orchestra right? I mean GoW1 is such a realistic WW2 game there's no other explanation but that. And how Epic forced them to sell the game back to them, and certainly not on a competitor's service like Steam? DESPICABLE.

Can't you put some thought into your attempt at humourous sarcasm so it at least has a grain of truth in reality?

Why is everyone bitching about the only company that has ever enabled so much prize money to be given to modders?

I agree, this is a good thing, even though my opinion of Epic is about the size of an ant right now.

But this is Blue News and it's to be expected that people will find the every ounce of negativity in a positive event. (See the HAWX trailer comments)

Maybe someone can make a mod for UT3 that makes it feel less like a half-assed console port.

It'd be nice if Valve would do this instead.
