Overview
$1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest


Welcome to the $1 Million Intel Make Something Unreal Contest, the ultimate modification competition brought to you by Intel and Epic Games.

The Make Something Unreal Contest is created for you to have fun working with the engine while making something Unreal to share with the community! It is broken into four different phases, which are not dependant upon each other. The idea behind having four phases is to encourage people to enter early and often, and to keep improving their mods over time. You can enter the same mod in all four phases of the contest but, in order to be judged, there must be noticeable improvements to the mod upon the second or third submission. We're anxious to tell the world about your mod, but we'll want your help to do so. If you have an official web site for your mod, then we'll happily post your URL, along with the download URL you provide for the mod itself, on our contest web site once it is fully operational. One thing we're anxious to do with this mod contest is to help mod makers get professional status. Nearly half of the people who work on Epic Games' development team were former mod-makers! We want to help you make it to the big leagues as well. Think you have what it takes? Check out the Epic Jobs page.

You can enter any phase you wish, and do not need to be a winner of previous phases. If you win any phase, you are free to enter the next phase once it opens (except for Grand Finals which required you to be a finalist of Phase 4).

All phase prizes and details can be found on our Categories page.

Please read the End-User License Agreement that comes with the PC version of Unreal Tournament 3. It says exactly what you can and can't do with your mod. To be eligible for this contest, your mod must be in compliance. Particularly, you can't enter mods (or create mods for that matter) that are used to promote a product or service in any way or mods that use any third party intellectual property, including, but not limited to software, images, characters, logos, names and trademarks.

Teams that create mods should choose one person to represent the mod and file the entry for the contest. Cash and hardware prizes will be awarded to that person and it is his or her responsibility to distribute winnings to the remaining team members - so choose someone you trust!

What does winning an Unreal Engine 3 license mean? It means that you have some pretty amazing options. With an engine license under your belt you could create a commercial version of your mod and then sell it yourself, or find a publisher to do that for you. You could create a whole new game using the Unreal Engine development skills honed while creating your contest entry. When you talk to publishers, you can have the confidence of having a pre-paid Unreal Engine license!

The educational category is open to any student or faculty member of any accredited school. This can be a high school, university, community college, etc. You don't have to build the mod on behalf of any official school project or function. You simply have to be an enrolled student or faculty member and submit a mod for the contest and the name of your institution. In order to be eligible in each category, the school will be required to verify your status and indicate that they would accept cash prizes, and allow us to use their name publicly when listing contest winners.

Good luck making your mods, and be sure to check back here for more details on the contest.

Ahh, I remember this waaay back when for UT:2004 - this is the contest that brings the modders out of the woodwork, and what (in my opinion) helped provide motivation for the developers to make Red Orchestra and UnWheel so great. I certainly don't have the skills to participate, but I love to watch!

Good stuff. Maybe someone can make UT3 not suck.

Having a LAN party soon, and we'll be playing UT2004 - it's a better game. Full stop.

Hopefully whomever wins just slows the game down a bit. Its a shame those great graphics go to waste by making everything go so fast. If they could make UT3 more along the lines of BF2 in actual game speed and strategy, it would be an awesome game.

That is what Unreal is all about.............personally I think the game is awesome. I have UT2004 as well and I equally like it as well. Personally its a game that has to grow on you. You must get used to its "style" of game play.

Oh BTW. This contest is great, I have known a few people in the past that tried to mod a UT engine for this specific contest.

I am so glad that my college is doing a simulation and modeling using game engines class next semester. Brought this up as a potential goal for the class and the prof loved it.

UT is known for its twichy game play... I don't think that changing the game play is going to cut the mustard for this contest.

There needs to be something innovative, new, different for it to have a shot at the million bucks...
good enough

its a pretty frikken cool mod they're doing. They got most of the force powers working like strangling enemies, throwing them or objects, ect. Alot of bugs as seen in some of the demonstrations they have but its only in beta I believe.

Google is teh power.

The most coolest mod, but not finished, in my opinion would be the Resident Evil Twighlight mod for HL2. It's almost to its beta stage - I cant wait for it.
