As many of our Facebook Fans already know, we recently supported the Obduction Kickstarter campaign to help fund a major new video adventure game from Cyan, makers of the iconic hit game MYST, which was originally created using Strata 3D Software.
As part of that effort, 25 backers of the "Become a Strata 3D Artist" tier (which required an investment of $1100) each received a special Myst Edition copy of Design 3D CX and a unique opportunity to actually design a 3D model to be used in the game. The tier sold out in days!
We realized early on that $1100 is not a "struggling artist" kind of investment, so behind the scenes we locked in one final commitment from Cyan - to include at least one additional model in the game from our Obduction Facebook Modeling Challenge that starts today!
This gives all of our existing Design 3D SE and CX users a chance to showcase their talent and create something that may be chosen for inclusion into the Obduction adventure game (along with the model creator's name in the game credits)!
The winning entry will be selected by Cyan and will receive automatic inclusion in the final game. Cyan may choose to use additional entries. The top 5 entries will also receive copies of the Obduction adventure game when it's released in 2015, as well as an Obduction T-Shirt at the end of the contest to help remind you of your excellent work while you're waiting for your game to be developed and delivered.
Good luck to all and may the best model win! The contest begins April 3, 2014 and will end May 30, 2014.
