GameFlood, an online site for playing and creating add-on video game content and division of Turbo Squid, yesterday announced the winners of its Mod and Map Making Contest. The winners collectively took home $25,000 in cash and prizes. GameFlood’s community nominated the top 10 finalists in each category, and a panel of industry expert judges chose the winners. Over the past few years, modding, or modifying an existing game, has increasingly gained acceptance as being a recognized path for aspiring game developers to show their chops and get into the industry. The pastime was once thought of as being just for hobbyists, but is now even accepted by The Independent Games Festival as a type of student game submission. Modders or students who are looking to enter similar contests can view the winning submissions, listed below, at GameFlood’s web site for inspiration, as well as information about the level of competition they can expect to face.
