World In Conflict: Call For Cartographers

By John Walker on May 1st, 2008.

I don't recognise this Ordinance Survey markings at all.

Rock, Paper, Shotgun officially loves World In Conflict. Announced today is Sierra’s WiC map-building compo, and a chance to see your map in an official release.

The competition asks players to create their own multiplayer maps for WiC using the map making tool, then to submit them to the competition, with a chance to win $1000, an Nvidia 8800GT, and your map in their game.

It would be extremely excellent to see your home-made map go on sale to the world – there’s no denying it. But the press release’s claims that the prize’s effect are perhaps a little bold. They will:

Crysis Winners

By Jim Rossignol on March 25th, 2008.

He's not a winner.
The winners of our excellent Crysis competition are David McLaughlin, James Glover and Si Wharton. No, we’re not going to print their crises because they’re of rather variable length and family quality, and we may need them as… evidence. Thanks, however, to everyone who entered. And thanks to EA for providing the booty. Fresh competitions coming up soon.

WIN: Crysis And Soundtrack

By Jim Rossignol on March 13th, 2008.


Electronic Arts have kindly volunteered to give away copies of Crysis and its soundtrack CD to three RPS readers. Well, we say “give away”, but there has to be an element of vying for the prize. We require a small imaginative penance by which we can judge the worthy recipients. Crysis, in case you weren’t paying attention, was one of last year’s most splendid first-person shooters, and spiritual sequel to Far Cry. And it’s a beauty.

And so we ask a competition question: There’s a crisis on planet Earth! But what is the nature of the crisis? And don’t just give us the old “martians are coming for our women”, or “greenhouse gases are causing catastrophic climate change”, because we want original crises: the clever, the funny, and the weird. Have shoes suddenly become a vital food group? Did cats learn to use the internet to post pictures of their owners? The most entertaining, terrifying, and imaginative crises will earn these splendid Crysis bundles. Understand? Email us your crisis, and it’d help if you included a postal address, just in case you’re one of the talented winners. The editor’s judgment is absolute, and final. Competition ends on 20th of March.

Competition: Artful Spaceship Companion

By Jim Rossignol on October 12th, 2007.

Those handsome and worldly developers at CCP have offered to donate a copy of their new book, the coffee table-improving Art Of Eve, for our competition prize pool. The book is a finely crafted tome, containing prototypical sketches, commentary, and glorious renders of the beautiful Eve universe, with all its space oddities and wonderships. If you would like a copy then all you (potentially) need to do is to enter our competition. Only one person will win, obviously, unless you agree to timeshare the book with someone, or something.

Anyway, the challenge is to find us the best spaceships. We don’t want real spaceships, of course, but rather something you’ve dredged up from the slick innards of the internet. It can be a link to a YouTube clip, a retro comicbook cover, a childish scribble, or a found photograph – but it must be of or pertaining to spaceshipness. What we judge to be the best celestial ephemera will win the prize. Email your entries to here, and await our judgment. Needless to say, we’ll probably post any really good stuff you come up with. The competition closes on the 2nd of November. Go to work.
