I may enter, though I don't much care for the prizes, so I don't know if it would be a good idea for me.

Feel free to request (reasonable) prizes, for this contest or the next. I tried to make the contest as open-ended as possible so anyone can enter, even FarCry modders!

Amazing work you have done with your Rayman game! That is exciting to hear you are moving to CE3, I will certainty track your progress. As for the contest, I see many amazing environments, some spooky, and some with ghosts! Surely you could throw together three screenshots to support the contest, and you could always vouch to offer your prize to the next runner up if you win :cheesy:

Ah, thank you very much Alex! (I've already been on CryEngine3 for a while if you check my YouTube page) :happy: If I win a prize, I'll just give it to the next runner-up like you said.

You will be judged on three screenshots from your map. If you like, you can make a WIP thread here (you can see mine as an example): http://www.justmakegames.com/index.php/ ... ne-contest

Your work is awesome blackhorizon, I really hope start a thread :D

Quick question, once we make the screenshots are we allowed to edit them like in a program Photoshop?
