    Pretty sweet stuff, including a Warcraft intro, and a 2D Warcraft game, from the creator of the Diablo RPG and Zelda remake!

  • Star Bar

    Star Bar by BasharTeg

    Do you like drinking? Perhaps karaoke? Maybe you want to start a band and go from gig to gig brilliantly displaying your sovereign talent with the electric accordion.

    You can do all of those things in a real bar, but you can't necessarily run the bar itself. Welcome to Star Bar, where you can do such wonderful tasks as firing helpless employees, buying truckloads of industrial-grade bio paste for your bar menu specials, bribing health inspectors, charging a 250% markup for "top shelf" moonshine, and more - - - all without even going through the trouble of investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in an actual, real life, brick-and-mortar establishment.

    AND THAT'S NOT ALL! Star Bar is intended for multiple players, so you're actually competing against other human beings to have the best bar in town! While they're hastily scrambling to replace that last batch of salted Urubu wings they just sold because "whoops, Bubba forgot to place the order," you can "arrange" for a union official to show up and turn your competitor's employees against him! While you're lounging on your bar stool, sipping on a nice glass of smooth Jenny VZ Reserve, you can snicker gleefully as chaos engulfs your opponents - the result of your clever machinations!

  • Starcraft: Mass Recall

    Starcraft: Mass Recall by SCMR Team

    For those of you who remember the last newspost about this back in 2011, you'll know that the SC1 series was far from complete... However, Jones and his team have been hard at work, and now all 6 episodes of SC1 and Broodwar have been completed and compiled into one mega-project: Starcraft: Mass Recall (based off of MavercK's SC2BW mod). If you're looking for a great "new" game to play and a healthy dose of nostalgia, go check it out!

    Zealot Hockey (and free videos!)

    Do you happen to like hockey? Do you also happen to like starcraft 2? If so, then Zealot Hockey is probably the map for you. Players can take advantage of several abilities to dash around, check other players, rapidly maneuver, and pass the puck.

    Like the video? Fullachain has generously offered to create more videos like it for those who are interested.

  • Freax Arena

    Freax Arena by WiiKing

    In Freax Arena, you begin the game as a hero, alongside 5 allied heroes, as with any hero brawler styled game. However, this game skirts away from the normal modes of grinding in the MOBA genre. You can earn points by questing, doing random events, conquest, in addition to killing your enemies. The Public Beta is kicking off tomorrow (March 7th), following a game presentation, at 7:00 pm (CET), on http://twitch.tv/msthechosenone.

  • Lego-style Physics Tech Demo

    "Lego"-style Physics Tech Demo by Zolden

    Curious about some of the capabilities of the GalaxyEditor still? Zolden shows off some of what the physics engine can do: think lego style building games here, and the map is based completely on actors. In this tech demo, you can simply build stuff and then blow it up afterward, but again, there are many possibilities here.

    Quote:

    Almost any custom shapes with <= 32 sides can be used, also spheres and cylinders. Also there are 5-6 physical parameters we can modify in large diapason to create funny behaving physical materials. I haven't tried it yet, but we probably can attach forces to the physical objects, which opens startling possibilities of fun generating, like imitating matter.

    Rock the Cabinet Contest by Blizzard Arcade

    For those of you that have been around long enough, you'll know the last Blizzard contest was the previous BlizzCon mapping contest. With the recent changes, Blizzard has decided to throw a nice "welcome" contest to the brand new Arcade with some pretty big cash prizes, as well as a little extra swag. This is what we've all been waiting for, Mapsters! :).

    RULES

  • Per-project forum (opt-in).
  • Site forum as well for general discussion.
  • Per-project ticketing system (opt-in). This is mostly for very serious projects.
