Building Bridges Contest

Building Bridges Contest
Any (PC)
Mar 22 2015
Contest Over View Winners
Whether spanning vast bodies of water, deep crevices or other hazards, bridges are architectural wonders that allow us to easily pass otherwise impossible barriers.

Not only are they intricate pieces of engineering, but the limited routes offered by bridges makes them key strategic points in any battle and creates unique gameplay elements in maps. That's why this week we want you to create a map centered around a bridge (or bridges).

You have 31 days to come up with a playable map for ANY PC GAME based around the theme of "BRIDGES" and upload it to the contest category.

Need ideas?

Bridges come in many shapes and sizes, and can be made from a huge variety of materials. Some are solid beam structures, others suspended from ropes or cables. Some are in fixed positions, others swing open / closed. Bridges have been around in various forms for centuries, and will probably be about for centuries more, so the theme and setting is entirely up to you!

- A rickety old wooden bridge between two cliff faces.
- An ancient stone archway or viaduct over a fast flowing river.
- A metal walkway over a volcano, pit with spikes or nuclear reactor.
- A futuristic hover bridge?
- A major transport bridge into / out of the city, under enemy control.
