      TF Tomb Contest 2014

      November 3, 2014 - TF2 Team

      Team Fortress Tomb

      One of the best parts about working on Team Fortress is that we have the ability to try new things. Sometimes this means "let's try making Halloween minigames that revolve around bumper cars!" and sometimes, like now, it means "let's try a new way of doing promotions".

      Rather than working with the developers to have them produce some promotional content for the upcoming Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris that we hope you'll like, we're involving all of you guys directly — you who submit content to the Workshop and who vote on it.

      Square Enix has agreed to open up the Tomb Raider IP so that we can have a contest. All of the Tomb Raider games are fair game, so if you've been waiting for your chance to put the heavy in short shorts, this is it. (Please don't do this.) You're welcome to pull from your favorite villains, heroes, levels, or any bit of lore. Because this upcoming game takes place in the classic Tomb Raider universe, we'd like to steer you towards the classic Lara games, rather than focusing on last year's "Tomb Raider".

      The contest works like this:

      • Tomb Raider IP can only be used by Workshop submissions tagged with 'Tomb Raider'
      • Each submission is limited to a maximum of two contributors
      • When the contest ends on November 20th, we'll select up to three winning entries
      • Winning entries will be used as the pre-purchase rewards for Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris on Steam
      • Normal Workshop terms apply, so outstanding entries may show up in the TF2 store
      • Official rules are available here

      In addition to being featured as the Genuine-quality items awarded for pre-purchase, the contributors who submitted the winning entries will (subject to the contest terms above) get a free copy of the upcoming Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. And pretty much every Tomb Raider game available on Steam:

      • Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
      • Tomb Raider Anniversary
      • Tomb Raider I
      • Tomb Raider II
      • Tomb Raider III: Adventures of Lara Croft
      • Tomb Raider IV: The Last Revelation
      • Tomb Raider V: Chronicles
      • Tomb Raider VI: The Angel of Darkness
      • Tomb Raider VII: Legend
      • Tomb Raider VIII: Underworld
      • Tomb Raider (2013)

      In case that wasn't compelling enough, Square Enix has also agreed to grant the winners free copies of almost every one of their Steam games:

      • Anachronox
      • Battlestations Pacific
      • Battlestation Midway
      • Blood Omen 2: Legacy of Kain
      • Daikatana
      • Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Director's Cut
      • Deus Ex: GOTYE
      • Deus Ex: Invisible War
      • Dungeon Siege
      • Dungeon Siege II
      • Dungeon Siege III
      • Front Mission Evolved
      • Final Fantasy III
      • Final Fantasy IV
      • Final Fantasy VII
      • Final Fantasy VIII
      • Final Fantasy XIII
      • Hitman: Absolution
      • Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
      • Hitman 3: Contracts
      • Hitman: Blood Money
      • Hitman: Codename 47
      • Just Cause
      • Just Cause 2
      • Kane & Lynch: Dead Men
      • Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days
      • Murdered
      • Legacy of Kain: Defiance
      • Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
      • Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver 2
      • Omikron
      • Pandemonium!
      • Quantum Conundrum
      • Sleeping Dogs Definitive Edition
      • Startopia
      • Supreme Commander 2
      • The Last Remnant
      • Thief
      • Thief: The Dark Project / GOLD Edition
      • Thief II: The Metal Age
      • Thief: Deadly Shadows

      This contest runs through Thursday, November 20th, and we'll announce the winners a few days after that. Whether you're an experienced Workshop contributor or someone thinking about getting their feet wet for the first time, this is a great opportunity to check out the item import tool and get to work. If you aren't interested in submitting content of your own, we're still counting on you to head over to the Workshop and vote on the entries that you want to see in the game. Good luck!
