Epic and Intel have announced a contest for the more talent modders among us. They’ve put up $1 million in the “Make Something Unreal Contest,” which invites modders to use the Unreal Tournament 3 (PC version_ engine to create something as special as 2006’s Red Orchestra. There’s a number of different categories to chose from, from best graphics in a map to best machinima. You can find all of those here.
And it’s not just money that’s up for grabs. Since Intel is part sponsor, you’ll also be working toward an Unreal Engine 3 license and Intel Core 2 Extreme-based PCs, among other things.
Since I have zero modding/programming ability, I won’t be able to participate. Guess no lucrative license for me.
