The MOD which has won Epic's "Make something Unreal" contest, will hit stores errr "servers" in January. They won Epic's contest, an UE 3.0 license and release an enhanced version of their MOD via Valve's Steam. Ah the irony ;)

Dunno if I'll buy it though.

Because it's not a mod. Read the interview.

But yeah, this is good stuff. I still reckon Valve are going to end up as a super-major player in the digital publishing business as time goes on. No end of third-party games have signed up with them in the past few months alone -- HL2 really opened the floodgates. They have a (what is now) stable system, a huge userbase and it's already on many PC gamers' systems. It's ideal for developers who don't want to front physical publishing costs.

Yeah I just read about some other company today who are going to distribute their game via Steam (can't remember who but it was a moderately big name)

Pirates of the Burning Sea? It's not that big name, but it is a MMOG.

:edit: Forgot about Warren Spectors new game, but it's a Source game that is distributed through Steam so it's a no brainer.

its built on Unreal 2.5 though

Did I say anything else? :???:

I don't think they won a UE3 license. Just UE2.5.

Quote from the interview:

John Gibson - Well we do have a certain license for the hottest new gaming engine (Unreal Engine 3) that we won in the MSU contest we have to figure out how to use J But for news on what we’ll do with that you’ll just have to stay tuned.
