Amazon And Square Enix Announce Ultimate Thief Mod Contest


In a press release today, Square Enix announced a mod contest today, partnering up with Amazon, AMD, and the team behind The Dark Mod.

Beginning today, we challenge the THIEF and modding communities to put their imagination to the test. Whether it’s creating a new heist for Garrett or reworking a classic level from the series, Square Enix and Amazon are looking for fans to submit entries in one of two categories; either a short video playthrough of a mod they’ve created, or a pitch for a mod they would like to create.

The plan is to let the community, members of the Thief dev team, and members of The Dark Mod team vote on the entries. One winner from each of two aforementioned categories will be selected and will be awarded some pretty awesome prizes:

o    A high-end gaming rig from AMD which includes an AMD Radeon™ R9 290X graphics card
o    An all-expenses paid trip to E3 2014 with Square Enix
o    Steam code for all Square Enix Games with the matching Prima Guide
o    A bundle of game development books on Kindle
o    An Amazon Kindle DX

This author is (not so) secretly jealous about that 290X rig. If you aren’t selected as a winner, don’t worry. All entrants will receive a free digital version of Thief: Gold, courtesy of Amazon.

If you’re interested and are looking for more details on how to enter as well as a complete list of categories and prizes, click here. If you want more information regarding mod creation, plus any tools you’ll need, click here.

This competition runs through April 14, 2014. Good luck!
