Coda is a modification of Unreal Tournament 3 which focuses on thoughtful, unforgiving, competitive, fast paced and stylish gameplay. It will provide several interesting systems which players will have to use in harmony in order to defeat their opponents. Initially the mod will focus around an original sword fighting system based on mouse movements. Next magic and psionic energy systems will be implemented, and tightly integrated into the sword fighting gameplay. Coda will feature a player control system which borrows mechanics from fighting games such as Guilty Gear. Several maps and completely original characters are planned. Stay tuned for frequent updates, this mod is currently under rapid development.

I don't know what's going on at all. What're these phases and categories stuff? Who's going to win 1.000.000 $ ? How many phases are there? Did it end? Who's the winner? It's been long time since this started.

Ni-Q Aug 7 2009 replied:

There are four (4) phases. This was the winners of the third phase. The fourth and last real phase has a deadline at 31st of august. After that there will be a grand finale from all the submission from all previous phases (if I'm not mistaken). And the 1mill just means that there are at least 1 million dollars + hardware prizes in total. So none will be winning that amount for themselves. For more information you can check out the contest website at

If any of these facts are untrue, feel most free to correct me.

If they win the contest completely there is a chance this will become a actual retail game. :D

"The top 12 entrants from round four will be picked to enter the final judging round for the $1 million dollar prize and a contract with Epic Game." <---- see that, a contract with Epic. How effing cool is that!?

Imo, these guys are the most qualified to win. They have made one of the best mods I've ever seen, no doubt.

Ni-Q Aug 10 2009 replied:

From what I've read and heard, this above quote isn't true in the fact that no specific person or team will win 1 Million Dollars, it's just the total sum of all prizes. So I'm still guessing the prizes range from $500 to $50,000.

There will however possibly be a license for the engine given out.
