Public Enemies – a stunning 3D scene created using CryENGINE® 3 – was named the big winner of Polycount’s ‘The Escape’ challenge this week. The work of Team Penyx, the 1930s car chase scene blew everyone away in a creative competition organized by the popular Polycount website – a hub for professional and hobbyist 3D artists. Entrants were free to use any game engine they liked to compose their work.
The team consists of Christian Bliss, Robert Hodri, and Ron Froelich, who all work at Crytek, and who went up against several other industry veterans in their bid to win the high profile competition. Their goal was to create a 1930s era setting with the CryENGINE 3, including a detailed chase scene between an escape car and police car. The theme tied in perfectly with the contest’s requirements, which offered entrants total freedom of imagination and interpretation as they depicted a scene based around an escape.
