Age of Muskets American Civil War
Torque Game Engine Map Contest
June 15th - August 15th, 2006

Electric Slide Productions, LLC and the AOM Development Team are bringing you the Age of Muskets American Civil War Torque Game Engine Map Contest. (Tribes 2 uses TGE)

Welcome to our Map Contest.
We are a small team of independent game developers working on an American Civil War shooter. While we can not afford hiring several individual level designers, who may or may not end up producing quality maps; we can offer the TGE community an opportunity to win some prizes for creating the best maps. If you have the skills, then work your map magic and enter our contest. Why are we doing this you ask? Because in order to collect the cash prize, the winning level designer must agree to contribute the map towards the Civil War game project, assigning nonexclusive rights to the map for use in commercial game. The level designer retains rights to use the map in his/her own personal and/or commercial projects. So the contest is a good way for us to add quality maps to the game project and the contest is a good way for level designers to gain recognition and may be win prize money. This contest is not associated or sponsored by garagegames.com; the contest is being run and offered by Electric Slide Productions, LLC.

Instead of just asking for help, we figured we would offer something in return to artists. We don't have the big bucks to spend on freelancers who may or may not make good playable maps, so we decided to have a contest with cash prizes for the best maps.

Plenty of independent projects ask for help from the community, we are putting our money where our mouth is and offering cash prizes for the best American Civil War Torque Game Engine maps.
