Competition 11 - Glass!

Competitions > View Original Brief

Here are the results, judged by Andy and Seventh-Monkey.

Special mention goes to Hans (download): This was probably my personal favourite. No readme, sadly, and was a little small, but the gargoyles are pretty cool. Good stuff; pity you didn't concentrate more on this one, Hans, instead of submitting several.

The Results

This starts off with a really well-mapped corridor, really show-offy with dramatic lighting, then down to a planet made of glass! Masterful vertex manipulation, so I had to give it first place even though it didn't really honestly use glass to its fullest.

Okay, so the name isn't too original, but Vassy used a property of glass in this good entry, which is why, although the lower-floor architecture isn't too superb, it wins silver. I love the entry (the grunts are on roller-skates, according to official reports).

Admittedly this is rather trite idea seeing as we had about five glass mazes submitted, but this was well-made and nicely-lit. Good entry from BJ with a nice extro sequence.
