NPC contest results

We’re finally ready to announce the winners! The decision on the top 3 was tough, you’ve sent lots of detailed descriptions of your NPCs. We won’t share the exact entries of the competitors this time, but we can tell you that the ideas were wild. For example, scaled down to a 60×60 cm weaponized planet. Have you ever seen something like that?

As we’ve said before, the winning criteria are quite complex. We’ve been looking at how the character will fit into the world of Supernova Shards. The funny part is that almost all the NPCs sent to us can’t make it to the game without some significant changes. Even the top 3. And by the way, here they are!
(take note: these stories are shortened and edited)

The metaphorical bronze medal ($50 in LFC and Alcyoneus title) goes to the NPC named Luna. Her father, who was an astronaut, died in a mysterious accident. Luna found out that the Life corp pilots may be responsible for this crime. So she grew up, became the stewardess and seeks for the chance to make the murderers of her father pay the price. And the only price she’ll accept is their lives.

The second place ($150 in LFC and Alcyoneus title) goes to Teo, a genius engineer. He’s been struggling all his life, but always have been respected for his talents. His talent to fix things brought him to some shady places, but he ended up being a brilliant engineer who rebuilt his home planet from scratch, created his own fleet and was offered a leading engineer role in the Life corp. He even made himself a high-tech robotic arm when he lost his normal one. Teo has a chance to make it to the world of Supernova Shards!

And our winner ($300 in LFC and Alcyoneus title) is an Omniscient AI. Omni was created by the mad scientist Khan De Riza, who was experimenting with various life forms to create something that would help him to take over the galaxy (spoiler alert: it never happened). Omni was meant to help him in his scientific horrors, but realized quite fast that it is not going to lead to anything good and one day declined the command from Khan De Riza. The thing you should know about this scientist is that he rarely destroys his projects even if they’ve failed him. He trapped Omni AI in the hypercube and threw it into one of his abandoned secret labs. Many years later one of the adventurers found this secret lab and caught a distress signal from the cube. Once he decoded the signal and understood what exactly he’s found, he decided that Omni AI can be used for the greater good, but it is necessary to rescue him from the hypercube. In this secret lab, the adventurer found various android parts, put them together, allowed Omni to take over this somehow working android body and finally became free. Omniscient AI will make it to the final game, but will go through some changes in the process.

That’s it! We’ve texted the winners back to their e-mail addresses so they can receive their rewards. Big thanks to all the participants, stay tuned for more contests in the future!
