Wish You Were Here

Post by Simista »

Sim here with a GREAT new competition for you! I say great because it’s EASY and not based on any skill other than playing Carmageddon:Reincarnation :D (which once mastered is not a skill it’s an ART!). What I want you to do is make me a lovely Summery Postcard using Carmageddon:Reincarnation. Try to think of classic holiday postcard scenery with a Carmageddon twist! Something that may entice someone to question their game collection and ask why they haven’t got a game filled with penguins and nuns too!.... something that just yells CARMAGEDDON in one image!

Don't you tell me there are still no entries. Maybe it's slowed down due to the new entry system?

I am really curious about your ideas - i have none.

Here is a couple of my entries.

I know we can only send one, but I cannot make a choice. :)



I modded the texture of The Plow, don't know if it is allowed for a competition.

Glumok: Great job as usual, mate. I really fancy the first one.

Unfortunately I don't have a single idea. :/

Couple of ones I like in here,

Hmm, wish My game ran enough for me to have pretty graphics to use in screenshots.

still I might just take a picture of some boobs and use that as a postcard or something.

Im also surprised at the amount of snowey pics in this Summer postcard contest.

hey maxine you can only try and do a screenshot of the game.

I was going for a whole overall of carmageddon, The postcard is more like how you want i think others see the game.

I also see this as a sorta advert for Carma if it where on a postcard. So maybe we could have gone more summery but that doesn't show off all of carma does it :P.

So thats just my thoughts on how i see this compo.

Btw Thanks Sim for updating the first post with those that have submitted there shots of the game.

Summer postcard,

One screenshot

Atleast if I do it ill stick to what the contest is about,

There was a screenshot contest before, rember, Random picture with wish you were here a sumemr vacation post card does not make.

Yes im being a grumpy jerk, No I dont care.

Edit:

Actully now that I think about it summer in the north pole most likly looks like that.

Ah whatever, sumemr still means warm to me, I think the msot dificult thing is actully capturing an intresting screen that will catch the judges eye... Unless were told to judge, in wich case any random pic could win..

Ahh.. Overthinking things,

Helloooooooo!

Really sorry this is a day late, my fault! All entries where fantastic! And I always say it but I’ll say it again, these comps are really hard to judge when there are so many great entries!

Right, the postcards didn’t come with titles, so I have named them… ;)

The winner is DZimmy for the amazing postcard I’m calling, “Twist It Up a Cow’s Bum”.



We couldn’t help but laugh at this very special “entry” EVERY TIME we came to view new entries, so we felt this really had to be the winner.

Our two runners up are:

SkyNet for the postcard called, ”Vlad’s Got The Munchies”.



And Glumok for the postcard that I’ve given the cheery title, “Bloody Couples”!



DZimmy – well done you sicko :) you will receive your pack of postcards soon, with one signed by team members!

And ALL three of you get a Carmageddon goodie bag! :D

So watch out for a P.M for your delivery details.

And thanks again to everyone for entering this competition – they’ll be another one coming SOON with more bloody ace prizes to win!

Sim xxx

Gratz to the winner. Sigh, glad I didn't even post, I had something ready but compared to the winner and runner-ups, it was an epic shiteball.Waste of effort that would be, so i spent the time I would be making a postcard drinking

It's hard to think of a proper words. If you guys really had a laugh with it that's a great reward. I also am proud I reached "sicko" status. ;)

Thank you very very much!

Also thank you for all the grats.

And Glumok I thought the very same thing when seeing your postcards.

P.S. Cannot wait for the goodies. :P
