On the week of January 31st 2010 we held a competition to win a copy of Global Agenda on Steam; courtesy of BlueWolf72 who regularly runs a number of his own competitions, including the Comps group on ModDB.
Global Agenda, in the words of PC Gamer Magazine:
Repackages the fond, familiar cooperative and mobile combat of TF2 and Tribes with layers of MMO goodness.
More details about the game can be found on its Steam product page.
The joint winners are [s³] Jack and Dasad233 for their entry “Modular Combat Trailer“.
Their entry started as a demo, but ended up being a fan-made trailer for Modular Combat; which came in the form of a video uploaded to YouTube, not a demo. However, it still wins because such a large amount of time was put into it.
We were expecting a few random demos to be entered between around 10 seconds and a few minutes in length. The winning entry goes just a little beyond that. Weighing in at 1 minute 48 seconds long the trailer was edited for three days and had a crew of 5 people who spent around 3 hours filming everything.
It was even featured in a news post on the ModDB profile of Modular Combat.
The winning entry was the only entry; other entries would likely have resulted in a vote between the best demo and the Modular Combat Trailer entry.
NOTE: The competition has ended, details of how to enter only displayed for posterity.
We want you to record a demo in a Valve game or one of the many modifications available for them. Surprise us, make us laugh, whatever. But try to make it fun and/or interesting to watch.
Once you have your demo, enter by sending it attached to an email entitled “Global Agenda Demo Competition” to email@example.com telling us:
- The game or mod you used to record the demo.
- If you record the demo in a mod, try to include the version number.
- A link where we can get the mod you used.
- If we can’t get the mod you used, we can’t watch the demo.
- A name for the demo and either your name or an alias you go by.
- For when we announce the winner and post the entries.
- And optionally, a short description of the demo.
