A few months ago we started a Christmas Level Design contest on Crymod, with the aim to see if we could get some of you amazing talented level designers to Crytek to help build future Crytek games. We received some fantastic entries from 15 level designers from around the world and had a lot of fun playing through each of the maps. Read on below to see what we thought!
First off, itâ€™s worth me providing some context to the contest. Before the competition commenced, the team I was part of was working on an unannounced project, and was in need of more level designers to fill the gaps. However, when we returned in the new year, this smaller team was moved onto working on Crysis 2, therefore meaning that we no longer needed the extra level designers. Despite this, we wanted to continue the contest, play through, and give feedback to those whoâ€™d spent time creating levels for the contest. Suffice to say those of you who had very good entries are â€œon the booksâ€
