Thank you to all who entered. It was a tough decision. IN FACT…

We’re going to give ALL of the people who entered the contest a free Steam Key!

So, congratulations all around! But, for the record, AxL Neo wins more than all of you, and will receive his Steam key first. By at least 10 minutes probably.

Contest: Name That Alien!

We’ve discovered a new creature roaming the shattered planet and we need it identified by the world’s top exo-zoologists. That’s you, right?

Send us your best science! You must answer two questions:

1 – What is this creature called? (maximum 3 words)
2 – What are its habits and preferences? (maximum 25 words)

Submit your entry via Facebook, Twitter, or comment on this blog post by February 4th and we’ll pick one to actually go in the game!

For those of you new to Shattered Planet, it’s a planet with similarities to Earth but fragmented from an ancient explosion. Yet life continues, with alien life-forms battling for scarce resouces. As a space captain, you’ll be exploring the planet and cataloguing all of its species, technologies, and strange happenings in your Datalog, for the betterment of the Galactic Union.

For reference, here’s a screenshot of a Datalog entry for the Crablet:

We’ll also list the winner’s name (if you like) as the identifier in the Datalog.

You can enter as many times as you like, so get posting, tweeting, or commenting! FOR SCIENCE!

Congratulations to the Contest Winners!

As you may have seen, Kitfox Games held its first contest from October 23rd to November 7th, 2013. Participants were challenged to write an obituary for a Shattered Planet character, which we can actually use in the game!

Thank you to everyone who entered the contest — we had a great time reading all of them! The decision was really tough, what with receiving over 50 entries! It took some time for the team to come to any kind of consensus.

Runners-up

  • Andrew L’Homme: Here lies Brucey B. He wished you had played on easy.
  • Guillaume Couture: Here lies April, she preferred drinking wine than health potions.

We liked them so much, we’ll be sending them both limited-edition stickers in the mail. Funny stuff, guys!

Grand Prize

We liked two… and after a long discussion… we just couldn’t decide, so we decided to award both!

  • David Fathers: Here lies Jeb. Died of a broken heart. And blood-loss due to multiple grievous slashing wounds, and a collapsed lung.
  • Rafael Botero: Here lies Eli, who found out the hard way that the pen is NOT mightier than the sword-claw-thingy.

Congratulations to David and Rafael, who will be included as Special Thanks in the Shattered Planet credits, and receiving limited-edition stickers in the mail!
