What ever happened to the Unearthly competition?


Recommended Posts

The last one was in 2009, and after the whole fuck-up with prizes and judging and stuff it never came back. So what ever happened to it?

For that matter what happened to all of the cool Env art challenges like this that used to go on? Anyone remember Scene From A movie?

The only recent one that I seem to have missed was the Beat 'Em Up one at Polycount.

They gave up Robert, because they know you would win. :(

Fucking brown-nose. :oops:

I miss these competitions. When they used to run, I was just getting into environment art, so I'd love to be able to participate in one now!

Apparently the guy who ran the contest got involved in an internet scandal and just gave everything up

That's interesting, I didn't know anything about that, it would certainly explain a few things. Last I heard he was just 'too busy' to organise it.

I also remember hearing a rumour about Polycount taking over too, not sure what happened to that.

    • [CS:GO] Shore
      One of the projects I worked on after I made de_austria.

      Yeah, I know the timing is really bad (CS2!), but can't change it... 🙁

      In general a lot went wrong during this project. Had a lot of problems with the layout, but I think I found a good compromise in the end. Also learned many new things. Maybe I would even be ready to create a really good map now after all, but I think that it's gonna be the final one. I really like making maps, but it has become too time consuming over the years for just being a hobby. Unfortunately I never managed to get a job in the games industry. So that's it. I hope it's a worthy ending of 20 years of making maps for me. 🙂

      Shore is a bomb defusal map for CS:GO that takes place on Lofoten Islands, Norway. (Also have a Hostage version of this that works well imo)

      I took some inspiration from this place in Norway:
