In celebration of our upcoming reboot to one of the greatest stealth franchises in gaming history, Square Enix and Amazon.com, in collaboration with a host of gaming partners including AMD and the team behind The Dark Mod, are excited to announce the ultimate THIEF mod contest!
Beginning today, we challenge the THIEF modding community to put their imagination to the test. Whether it’s creating a new heist for Garrett or reworking a classic level from the series, Square Enix and Amazon are looking for fans to submit entries in one of two categories.
Look, I Created a Mod: If you're already a modder, you can submit a short video playthrough (~5 minutes) of your work. If the mod was created as a team effort, you must get permission from and submit on behalf of all team members.
If I Could Mod, I Would Create... If you're not quite up to speed on modding, you can also submit a video pitch for a mod you would like to create. You should also check out other fan missions and resources provided by The Dark Mod team. Who knows, it might be easier than you think to make your dream Thief game a reality!
Your entries may be based on any of the games in the Thief franchise or on The Dark Mod. As inspiration, you can download a free digital version of Thief: Gold for the PC courtesy of Amazon.com. Get your redemption code here!
Once submitted, all entries will be voted on by the community, members of the Thief development team, and members of The Dark Mod team.
One winner from each of the two categories will receive a host of prizes from key partners, including:
o A high-end gaming rig from AMD which includes an AMD Radeon™ R9 290X graphics card
o An all-expenses paid trip to E3 2014 with Square Enix
o Steam code for all Square Enix Games with the matching Prima Guide
o A bundle of game development books on Kindle
o An Amazon Kindle DX
Closing date for entries is April 14, 2014. Full terms and conditions apply. For more information on how to enter and the full list of categories and prizes, visit the contest page.
