New "Make Something Unreal" Contest Planned

Do you have a great idea for a game that’s been stewing in your head for a long time, but you’ve just been too lazy or unmotivated to take the first step? Well, how does a cool $1,000,000 sound for motivation? That’s right. According to a news report on Computer & Video Games’ website, Epic Games VP Mark Rein has opened up the real possibility of another "Make Something Unreal" contest in the near future–more than likely sometime after the release of Unreal Tournament 2007.

The last "Make Something Unreal" competition, which was held in 2004, resulted with Tripwire Interactive finishing in the lead with their highly-acclaimed Red Orchestra. In addition to the cash grand prize, the team was also awarded a free license for the Unreal 2.5 and 3.0 Engine. They have since been picked up by a publisher and have completed their work on Red Orchestra Ostfront 41-45, which is currently available for download on Steam.

"People ask me ‘Will there be another nVidia $1,000,000 Make Something Unreal contest?’ Sure, we’ll round up some sponsors again and hopefully have another big, huge mod contest."

"This time I think it’s going to be spectacular," said Rein. "You see so many companies have licensed the technology, mainly because of how great the tools are and how productive and creative they can be with these tools, and it’s going to be that much more-so for the mod guys."
