Blizzard Arcade "Rock the Cabinet" Contest

It's time for "Rock the Cabinet 2015," the biggest Arcade contest of the year. This time, it's all about Fantasy themed games to celebrate the Warcraft III models and assets. Does your game have what it takes to win ten thousand dollars?

We want your best, brand-new game set in a magical world of your creation. We want to see swords and bows, dragons and goblins, orcs and elves, anything that will transport players into a fantasy setting. Though we'd love to see the Warcraft III models in action, they're not required and you are absolutely welcome to use any and all tools at your disposal.

So if you're ready to start working on your creation, here is what you'll need to keep in mind:
  • The game must have a fantasy theme.
  • The game must be in English.
    • Barring any legal restrictions from your home country and state, anyone is able to participate in this contest, but there must be an English version of the game.
  • The game should not require more than 6 human players for optimal play.
    • Your game can support 1 to 16 players, but it should take no more than 6 players to be a fun and enjoyable experience.
  • The game must be published to the North American Region of StarCraft II using the map editor.
  • The game's info page in the StarCraft II Arcade must have a description, at least one screenshot, and the ‘How to Play' section must be filled out.
  • A forum thread must be created on our Arcade Game Showcase Forum with the following requirements:
    • The title of the thread should read "Rock the Cabinet: [GAMENAME]"
      • Example: Rock the Cabinet: StarJeweled
    • A link to your game should be provided.
      • Example (StarJeweled): battlenet://starcraft/map/1/85968
    • A description of your game should be included in the first post in the thread.
  • Once the contest deadline passes, you may not update the game in any way. The version you submit to the contest is the one that will be judged. Any changes made to your game after the submission deadline will disqualify your entry.

Good Luck!
