Focus on this! We’ve collected and put together a nice little mini gallery of some of our favorite art pieces from the last few weeks and placed it below. Rorschach test results have concluded that there is a taste for horror in psyches this week.
*That’s ‘Design Your Own BYOC T-Shirt’!
QuakeCon’s BYOC has thrived for 20 years because of the personalities and culture you have brought to it. The case mods, “wooooops”, and skyscrapers built from BAWLs cans are what make the BYOC memorable. YOU KNOW IT!!!
So when it came time to figure out the design for this year’s Official shirt, we decided no one could do a better job than… you! So today we’re happy to announce the QuakeCon® 2015: 20th Anniversary Shirt Design Contest!
Between today and April 10th, you’ll be able to submit your shirt designs on our contest page. From there, our judging panel will determine five finalists and then it will be up to all of you to vote for a winner. Our contest winner will receive The Ultimate QuakeCon® Fan Pack * featuring a spot in the BYOC, QuakeCon® Done Quick access, and a Swag Pack!
Ever wanted to see how a top internet show like Gamespot’s Top 5 Skyrim Mods of the Week is made? Ever wanted to be there while they film it?
Then this is your chance to join hosts Seb and Cam and star Kevin VanNord for Top 5 Skyrim Mods of the Week… Live! Taking place in London’s videogame-themed Loading Bar on March 7th, attendees can look forward to drinks and spot-prizes, but hurry as there are only an extremely limited number of tickets for sale here (note, you must be 18 or over to attend).
And if you can’t make it, take heart, because Gamespot wants you to choose Kevin VanNord’s companion for the special show. So do you think Kevin should adventure with:
- Chatty, opinionated Khajiit Inigo?
- The mighty force of nature that is Dovahbear?
- Fiery mount and danger to stables everywhere, the Blaze of Evantide?
Read our interview with them below…
The Creation Kit toolset released back nearly three years ago (Feb 2012). How much “kicking the tires” did SureAI do before planning Enderal?
Johannes: Pretty much no kicking at all – we started planning Enderal — the scope, drafts of story and gameplay, a rough production plan, as good as it was possible without knowing the capacities of the CK — in October 2011, a month before Skyrim was released. Of course, the first results we got in the new engine weren’t that presentable and had to be reworked, but the actual development of Enderal started as soon as the Creation Kit was released.
How many folks are working on Enderal?
Nicolas: Altogether, we’re 14 people on the core team, of which around eight spend a lot of time on the development. Then, there are a lot of external contributors, mainly 3d artists, and, of course, voice actors and a German recording studio, 2day Productions, who help us with the localization.
It doesn’t have Chris Pratt or Will Ferrell, but The Guildmaster Studio’s LEGO re-shoot of Skyrim’s early moments — including a cool little prelude — is definitely epic.

Can you give a general overview of Beyond Skyrim and where the mod project currently stands?
Beyond Skyrim is a series of interlinking mods which will ultimately allow players to visit other areas of Tamriel within the Skyrim engine. Assets for each new region are being painstakingly created from scratch, including architecture, creatures, weapons, landscapes, textures and objects created by our artists and modelers. We pride ourselves on our fidelity to Elder Scrolls lore, and our ultimate aim is to create a player experience which will fit together seamlessly with Skyrim itself, allowing players to continue their existing character’s adventures in other lands, or perhaps even sidestep Skyrim’s story entirely and experience what the rest of Tamriel has to offer.
