Darkout is a sandbox, with strategy and survival components. One of the clearest influences present in the game comes from titles like Minecraft or Terraria, sandbox platformers where the player can build up facilities and modify his environment at will. But in Darkout there are some interesting points that make it worth to look at, starting by the importance that light has in the game.

Hey folks! as you may have seen, now we have a much more stable and improved game version. So we think it’s time to resume our competitions! and you know what? during the past two months I’ve seen many Youtube gameplays, each one of them with its own style.
The feeling I had after watching tons (perhaps too many xD) of them is that there would be awesome to create a gameplay video among all of us, to show to the press and the world. It would be an amazing collective creation, and all of you will be credited! The video will show everyone out there how cool the game is, the diversity of mechanics we have and how immersive and full of nuances are the worlds you live in and develop each day. And by the way, once for all, we want to tell the world that Darkout is not a Terraria clone ! That being said, with this post we just inaugurated the first edition of the....
Darkout One-Minute Video Awards! road to our 1st Fan-made Gameplay Trailer!
It works the following way. You will have 10 categories (listed below) and you can submit amaximum of 3 gameplay videos of no-more than one minute per category (you don't have to capture real-time footage, it may consist of several fragments showing a process). The authors of the most voted videos will get a free Darkout copy for a friend (and yes, theoretically you can get upto 10 free Darkout copies). And how we will calculate your punctuation of each video? here is the formula we will use:
Final Score = Forum post likes + Youtube (likes + views) + Facebook (likes and shares).
Requirements for the videos submitted:
And finally we have the categories, each one has its own subforum, and we ask you to post your videos for each category in the same thread under each subforum, in that way it will be easier for me and the rest of forum members to access and vote them. Here you have the list and a link to each sub-forum:
Some of the categories are more instructional than others, so we expect that various of the videos submitted will help a lot unexperienced players to learn how to master and improve in the game. Also, once the competition will be finished, we will add the best and more educational videos to the corresponding section of the wiki as a reference for the future.
The competition will last for a whole month, starting just today and finishing on May. 10th at 00:00h G.M.T.
We look forward to see your videos!
