Screenshot Contest: Everyone Gets a Key!

Congratulations to AxL Neo, who submitted the following screenshot to our contest, thus stealing our meme-devouring hearts:

so WoW!

so WoW!

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.

The Winner is: Gekkian Diplomat!

The results are in from our little community poll! Thank you to everyone who participated.

As you can see, the Gekkian Diplomat clearly won out, with over 50% of the votes. We also collected responses on Reddit.com and Twitter, which followed a similar trend. What with already having humans and robots, perhaps it’s only natural that an alien would win out… but of course, everything seems so much more obvious in retrospect.

We’ll be refining the Gekkian player character’s look further as we bring it into the game, and of course we’ll provide 4-5 different heads to try out with different ear configurations and facial expressions. We may, of course, also re-visit the other designs in the future.

Thanks again for helping us make a tough decision!

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!
