GameDev.net's most popular contest is back! Due to popular demand, we've brought back
the beloved Four Elements contest, but this time we decided to make it more challenging - and
more rewarding - than ever before.
The Four Elements IV contest is about bringing back the spirit of gaming. After years
of research1, we determined that every successful game requires one
of four elements: robots, pirates, ninjas, and zombies. So what better than a contest that
combines them all!
Your goal in the Four Elements IV contest is to take at least two of these four game elements and
do what you do best: make a game!
Sounds like fun, right? Well it gets even better! We have an amazing line up of sponsors for
this contest, including ATI, Softimage, ionForge, Game Institute, Charles River Media, and that's
we're just getting started. Interested in being a GameDev.net contest sponsor?
Now that we have your interest, take a look at this important information:
