The Planet Exploration Contest!
 
Part of the adventure that comes from exploring strange new worlds is discovering that planet's history and hearing the stories of its inhabitants. Imagine you have just entered orbit around the planet pictured here. Your mind races with the possibilities of what you will find. What is the planet's name? What or who lives there? Are they peaceful or antagonistic, welcoming or outright hostile? Are they long gone leaving only more mysteries to solve?



Tell us about the planet shown on the Planet Exploration contest rules page. You can tell a story of daily life of the inhabitants, make a scientific survey log entry, or weave any type of tale you choose.

Email us your story of up to 500 words at contest@crypticstudios.com by January 29, 2009.

Orbit established, Captain. What do you think is down there?

It's kind of hard to tell if it's a screenshot or rendering. If it's a screen shot, then maybe. I hope so. :)

It says "screenshot" so it's very very probable.

This is something I've been waiting for.

Confirms it for me, whether it's screenie or not. I mean, who didn't expect it anyways?

I might seriously get to work on this though. Just looking at that planet makes ideas pop into my head. Assuming I can find the time in between all my classes lately. Knew I shouldn't have registered for the most intensive freshman course on campus :rolleyes:
