Tripwire Interactive is happy to announce the winners in Wave 1 of the Killing Floor Grindhouse Custom Map Making Competition. With over 50 entries for the contest (download mappack), we have been really impressed with the quality of many of the submissions. The best of the best was judged to be Damien Laurent's "KF-Waterworks", which wins the top prize of $5,000. With amazing visuals and impressive gameplay the map set the bar very high for Wave 1, and will be one to watch for Wave 2. With all the great maps submitted in Wave 1, we can't wait to see what the mapping community creates for the final wave where the grand prize is $10,000. Additionally, the Wave 2 deadline has been moved back to October 2nd, 2009 to give the mappers a little extra time to polish their entries.

Congratulations to all the entrants in Wave 1. It is clear that a lot of effort went into these maps and it is just a shame that we can't reward everyone. The top 3 maps from Wave 1 are:

First Place - KF-WaterworksV2 by Damien "DamDam" Laurent which wins the $5,000 prize.

I knew waterworks would win when i saw the first screenshot :D

Sadly I haven't played the other two...yet...

There are few maps that are as beautiful as waterworks existing today on that engine, on or off KF.
