Killing Floor 2 Map Contest Could Net You Some Serious Cash

Are you a person who has mad skills at creating Killing Floor 2 Survival maps? Well then you might be someone that could win part of the $50,000 pot. All you need to do is create a map that demonstrates your mastery of the map editor, and of course your special little twists to make it unique. 

Judges will be from Tripwire Interactive and here's the criteria:

The judging of the submitted Maps will be done by individuals employed or selected by Tripwire Interactive. Judges will choose from the entries of each Wave and will select the top Maps to receive the awards and prizes. Key criteria for the main “Survival” map mode contest will include (but not be limited to):

  • Gameplay and Fun
  • Performance
  • Graphics
  • AI Pathing
  • Complexity
  • Technical stability
  • Polish
  • Creativity

And proper use of Killing Floor 2 features, including trader locations, specimen and item spawns. The following is a (non-exhaustive) list of examples:

  • Pathing is completed and the ZEDs can get to the player, without getting stuck
  • Zeds can spawn into the map reliably
  • Boss can spawn into the map reliably
  • Pickups are in the map and working
  • Trader Pods are in the map and working
  • Doors are in the map and working
  • Portal entry solution for Zeds implemented

Now if you can do all of this and win the judges vote, here's how the prizes break down:


Best Survival Map

  • 1st Place - $5,000 USD
  • 2nd Place - $2,500 USD
  • 3rd Place - $1,500 USD
  • 4th Place - $700 USD
  • 5th Place - $300 USD

Non Survival Map Prize Pool

  • $5,000 USD

Phase 2

Best Survival Map

  • 1st Place - $10,000 USD
  • 2nd Place - $7,500 USD
  • 3rd Place - $5,000 USD
  • 4th Place - $1,500 USD
  • 5th Place - $1,000 USD

Non Survival Map Prize Pool

  • $10,000 USD

So here's the deal, get to creating your map and then submit it through the ModDB Submission Page. Now of course the best part is that if you win the contest you're map is going to be added into the official rotation. What that means is you better plaster your name, or gamertag in different places in the level so that you can truly prove that you created this masterpiece.



First Wonder is Coming to Console

Well I know that a lot of people are a little bit depressed over the fact that the KickStarter isn't going nearly as well as it should be doing, but there is some exciting news to give out about the game. First off I don't think you have to worry about it crashing and burning. In less than 2 weeks they were able to get it through Steam Greenlight, and now they have partnered with Grip Digital to bring this game to consoles. Now the caveat is that they aren't going to bring it to the PlayStation 4 and XBOX One until fully funded for the PC, and that is something that will require further research.

So for now lets be hopefully optimistic about the next big game from Rogue Rocket Games, and lets hope that we can figure out exactly what needs to be done so that anyone and everyone can play this game at its full potential.



CORRECTION: League of Legends and BBC

We ran a story on the Thursday Night Hangout last week where we talked about BBC showing the League of Legends World Championship. Well it turns out that they are not broadcasting it on their TV station but on their website station, so it's kind of like ESPN3 for BBC. 

That being said I think that that is still big news for all involved because I think part of us knows that the future is looking more and more like we are going to be watching our shows through a streaming provider and slowly, but surely, cutting the cord with the cable companies.

I would like to point out that at one point I did work for a cable company, and even though I support cable or satellite and whatever the hell AT&T will try next, I've always known, since the XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 started to push Netflix and other services that this is where we are going. 

So once again League of Legends, for the UK, or hell I'm sure anywhere where the service is available will get to be streamed through one of the biggest names out there in the BBC.



We NEED the Final Chapter of The Journey Down

Alright I know it has been longer than it should have been since last we saw The Journey Down, but it is finally time to try to go after chapter 3, the latest and final chapter in the game. The developers, SkyGoblin, is going the KickStarter route, and they need your help. As of right now they have 17 more days and they are less than $2000 from their goal, which is REALLY doable.

Now I know that its been a while since I personally played the game (just over a year) but as you can see from my review of Chapter 1 and Chapter 2, this is a series that really deserves some love and attention. Now I know that you might be thinking, well I don't want to have to buy each chapter separately, well that's okay because one of the pledge levels gives you the trilogy. So get your ass over to their KickStarter page, lets finish off the donations, lets get this chapter made so that we can see where and how this game will end. I have some theories, but I'm going to keep them to myself.



Rogue Rocket Games Needs Your Help

For many you probably already recognize the company name, Rogue Rocket Games, as the one's behind Gunpowder, and the interview that we did with them. Well as you might remember they were also working on a bigger project and First Wonder has gone to KickStarter to see if you the gamers are willing to help out. 

I'm not going to lie they still have quite a ways to go to reach their goal and they have 18 days left as of right now, but if you liked Giants: Citizen Kabuto, you need to get over to the page right now and start pledging, and round up all your friends as well.
