Hunt: Showdown 3D Apparel Creation Contest is now on!

Check out our latest tutorial and enter our Hunt: Showdown 3D Apparel Creation Contest, hosted by Marvelous Designer.

Unleash your artistic skills, learn how to master Marvelous Designer, and take your chance to win some fantastic prizes by watching our latest tutorial and creating an outfit for a Legendary Hunter. Our new Hunt: Showdown 3D Apparel Creation Contest, hosted by Marvelous Designer, is running until 15 September, and we’re setting you the challenge of sending us screenshots of your best hunter outfits and garments. Enter, and you’ll be in with a shot at winning prizes, including NVIDIA graphics cards, perpetual Marvelous Designer licenses, merch from the Crytek store, and Hunt: Showdown keys.


Marvelous Designer from CLO Virtual Fashion is an amazing realistic cloth making program for 3D artists, and we’re challenging you to use this awesome program to come up with some seriously cool outfits and send us your best screenshots. Head to the Marvelous Designer website for a free 30-day trial. We have released a free asset pack on the CRYENGINE Marketplace containing mannequin models, a female base Hunter model, a male base Hunter model, and a CRYENGINE-ready scene so that you can create the perfect screenshot for your entry. We have also released a new tutorial, hosted by our very own Roman Perezogin, one of our Junior Technical Designers. The video shows you how to set up a garment in Marvelous Designer, import it into CRYENGINE, and use the engine’s lighting to create the perfect shot – everything you need to make garments for this contest. 

A panel of artists from Crytek and Jae Hyung Park, the Head of the Marvelous Designer Team at CLO Virtual Fashion, will judge the entries. Full details of how to enter, prizes, and terms and conditions are available at the contest’s website. To get your creative juices flowing, we’ll give you a flavor of what we’re looking for:


“The year is 1895. A malicious corruption has taken New Orleans, and a loosely organized group of bounty hunters are trying to stop it. Sent into the field by the American Hunter's Association, these hunters track and kill these monsters: for the gore, for the glory, and for the gold. But in the ultimate tragic irony, their efforts turn out to be feeding the corruption, and the more they fight, the more monsters will come.”


The goal of this contest is to create a unique and compelling character outfit or garment that would be worn by your very own Hunt: Showdown Legendary Hunter. The design and feel of the garment should be authentic, realistic, and a good fit for the world and time period of Hunt.


You can bring your own twist to the design – your character can be from anywhere in the world – but shouldn’t be overly modernized. Remember, Hunt is set in 1895. Legendary Hunters are the most badass, exclusive, and extraordinary player characters. They stand out, and they mean business. They live in an unforgiving world, full of monsters and ruthless competing Hunters, and whatever their story, it should be visible in the clothing they wear.
