TornadoTwins Game Challenge
7 July 2013 - 22 October 2013

TornadoTwins; youtube’s number one game development channel, is partnering with CGSociety to host a global game challenge for the world’s top 3D artists.

Accomplished 3D artists are enabled to turn their art into a complete first person shooter using FPS Control, the Twins’ plugin for the Unity Game Engine.

It is unique in bringing artificial intelligence, weapons and interactive worlds to life, without the need of a development team. Participating artists will create up to 2 minutes of gameplay.

The finished games will be exported to unity3d format for play in the browser, so that all competition viewers and judges can easily play the finished games

- Final game: (include game preview image.)
- At least 2 WIPs (can be images, videos, or unity3d files)

Proudly Presented by Full Sail University
