In the immediate aftermath of the siege, the once thriving place lies in ruins. Smoke still lingers in the air and debris smoulders amidst the destruction. Imagine a world where the remnants of battle litter the area, and the bravery and sacrifice of those who fought can be felt all around in the remains of what was.

The theme for this team challenge is Under Siege . Sign-ups are open from the 9th February and will close on the 18th February. Participants will be carefully assembled into a team of 5 artists where you will push both your technical and soft skills to create an exceptional 3D game-ready environment that captures the aftermath of the events that unfolded during the siege of your choosen place



- Teams are made up of 5 artists, teams are assembled by the challenge organisers (we try, where possible, to arrange the teams to give the optimal experience by balancing factors such as time zones)

- There are both realistic and stylised teams

- The challenge is 5 weeks made up of; 1 week of setup, ideas, planning and blockout and 4 full production weeks. The complete timeline can be found in the calendar below.
