2) Contest Description.
Will Wright, world-renowned game designer and creator of The Sims, SimCity, and Spore, has announced that his game dev studio, Gallium Artists, which was co-founded by Where in the World is Carmen San Diego creator Lauren Elliott, is working on its newest game, Proxi. Proxi, built in Unity Software, is a simulation game that allows players to build entire worlds from their personal memories. Gallium Artists is partnering with Unity to leverage the extensive pool of talent of the Unity Connect community to find a 3D artist to potentially help Gallium Artists create their next big game. In Proxi, memories are the building blocks of the world. They’re represented by piecing together 3D models to create different environments. In this Contest we are challenging you to create 3D art based on your own memories to enter the Contest, as described more fully below.
