Halloween 2015 Mapping Contest

Halloween 2015 Mapping Contest
Oct 31 2015
Contest Over View Winners
You have time until the Halloween to come up with a horror themed map for ANY game.
Halloween is celebrated on the night of 31st October every year. Some people like it because of those cool and interesting costumes others wear and some like it because of the spooky pumpkins and similar stuff all over the streets.

Here at GameBanana, we love Halloween because of all the spooky mods made by the community for us to enjoy. There are exactly 40 days left until the Halloween and you have exactly so much time to come up with a Halloween themed map for any game.

Potential map ideas:

- A castle set on a lonely island
- A graveyard and a church place in a abandoned village
- An old farmhouse set next to a lake full of corpses

**Contest Rules**: Every submission must be a playable level for the game it's been made for!
Entries must be submitted onto the site before the deadline.
Submitted content must be considered "Original", or have the permission given by the original artist if based on an already existing concept/map.
If you wish to create a remake of an existing map, you must have original author's permission.
The submission can use pre-existing assets such as existing models, textures or layouts, but enough work should be done to consider the submission a 'new release' made for this competition. Simply re-uploading a previous piece of work will not count.
Multiple entries are allowed, however quality is better than quantity.
Each entrant may only win a maximum of one (1) prize.
Team based entries are allowed, but the entrants will have to decide and agree on how to split any prizes awarded.
Entries cannot be modified after the deadline except for changes to the submission profile (changing the description, notes or screenshots).
If the entry is uploaded to an external site, it must state that it was created for the GAMEBANANA HALLOWEEN MAPPING CONTEST 2015.
Judges cannot enter or assist entrants.
Upon entering the contest you agree on receiving your cash prize via PayPal or as the equivalent in Steam games.
