MSUC Phase 2 Winners Announced

Another phase of the MSUC contest is now officially history.

Quote:

LAS VEGAS - February 18, 2009 - Epic Games, Inc. today announced Phase 2 winners in its $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest. The competition rewards top mods created for Unreal Tournament 3 with cash and hardware prizes in four preliminary phases and a grand final judging. In this portion of the judging alone, a total of $70,000 in cash prizes will be distributed to mod authors who place each category.

"Intel is committed to unleashing developer innovation. The second phase of the $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest has delivered some of the most exciting and innovative Unreal Tournament 3 game mods ever," said Elliot Garbus, vice president Intel Software and Services Group, general manager Visual Computing Software Division. "This contest is just one of the ways that Intel's Visual Adrenaline developer program encourages developers and enthusiasts alike to get the most out of PC gameplay."

The Phase 2 winning mods will be showcased at the 2009 Game Developers Conference in San Francisco at the Intel Lounge.

"Epic's mod contest has provided benefits for both mod authors and the game industry alike," said Mark Rein, vice president of Epic Games, Inc. "Past winners have gone on to ship commercial games using the Unreal Engine, and several former members of the Unreal mod community have found jobs either with Epic or with companies licensing the Unreal Engine."

When he has a team of twelve behind him who pour as much effort and love into their project as they can, he expects to come first i'm sure. Then you come along and pwn him with a five minute Ued job. (I'm not bagging out your mod, i love it And i know it took more then 5 minutes. )

I can't wait Hourences will be whipping his team much harder at the very least.
