May Creative Competition – Treehouse

May’s Creative Competition theme is going back into the archives, revisiting a popular one – Treehouse!

This was also one of our first competitions, back in May 2020!

The May Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the April gate which will close to building at 9pm on Saturday April 30th.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of May 1st, so get planning and designing!

April Creative Competition – Time Travel

April’s Creative Competition theme is Time Travel…

Now while the example build (seen above) is from Back to the Future, this isn’t a Time Travel Movie theme, we’re talking real world times! Prehistoric, Medieval, 60s, Industrial, even Futuristic! Get creative – the plots are also bigger – 50×50 instead of 40×40, so there’s more room to build!

The April Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the March gate which will close to building at 9pm on Thursday March 31st.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of April 1st (we’re not joking), so get planning and designing now! We’re looking forward to travelling through time…

March Creative Competition – Modern Home

On to March! The next competition’s theme is Modern Home!

Time to get stuck into the concrete and modern architecture!

The March Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the February gate which will close to building at 9pm on Monday February 28th.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of March 1st, so get planning and designing now – you’ve got a month!

February Creative Competition – Pixel Art

Time to try something a little different – in February we want to see your best Pixel Art!

The rules are in the image above, but you’ll still need this info!

It’s not just about the pixel art – we want to see how you frame it, and what’s around the art itself to complement the build. The build will be judged as a whole, but the pixel art should be the main focal point.

The February Comp world gate – located in the Creative Lobby – will replace the January gate which will close to building at 9pm on Monday January 31st.

The gate will open in the Creative Lobby on the morning of February 1st, so get planning and designing now – you’ll only have a month to build.
